As I have a whole bunch of time to kill, I'm doing an MMO showdown. I'm playing World of Warcraft with Burning Crusade and Everquest II: Rise of Kunark.
Yes I'm really that busy. I have to say these games are fairly comparable on the graphics side. The WoW engine is still much smoother on Hank, given that it does less, but style is where Blizz still wins. But you've heard all that before.
It's really hard to get into a game that is so heavy into it's own mythology. Both of these games suffer from that, I think. It's hard for me to tell with WoW because I've been through it all. I was having a hard time connecting with EQII.
