Not free to play. Cannot do much without subscription. And if you do get good gear while under subscription they take it away till you get a subscription again. So it is not free to play. Free to try out.

If I would have written this review when EverQuest II went 'Free2Play' I would have NOT recommended you to play it, because SOE (now DayBreak BTW) had made the in-game cash shop a Pay2Win one and the 'free' game was extremely limited, almost forcing you to subscribe - even former subscribers had to ditch at least half their stuff to continue to pay for free!!!

It's a good thing that SOE has learned and has lifted most of the restrictions of the game. Now as a free player you can enjoy almost every aspect of the game (aside from the best gear and the latest expansion) and walk around in a world that litterally lets you EVER QUEST (oh yeah, pun intended there).
And that world is quite beautiful indeed. Every zone has it's own setting where you can pick up new quests and explore for hours to go. The only sad thing is that the zones are not directly linked, but you get a loading screen from zone to zone.

Crafting in EQ2 is probably one of the best systems I've seen in any MMORPG. You can actually influence the quality of the outcome, or fail misserably. And when you're trying to make something that's real hard to fabricate, you can even be hurt during the process.

In all, I thikn EQ2 is a pretty well done MMORPG. Sadly though, I'm a bit out of MMORPG lately but might pick up EQ2 at some later time again.

Played EQ back in 98 for years and years. Many friends from all over the globe. Then EQ 2 came out. I had all the CDs to install when it first came out, retired from military, lost them all in the move, found the install on STEAM. Great game, the only issue is, not a lot of players like there used to be back in the day and now a days the game leans more towards instant lvling to keep playes interested. Its not hard to get a max level character.... *sigh* I miss the good ole days of months and months of playing to get high lvl and decent gear. Nows its all instant gratification. Still though, a very good game and lots of fun!

Played this game since beta my actual playtime sadly is over 400 days. Clearly I like the game if I've put that much time into it. Imagine my surprise when I went to purchase some in game currency and was prompted through the steam site. This was the first time I've tried to add funds via steam and nearly fell out of my desk when they wanted to charge me a $10 tax to my $20 purchase. Went through the site where I've always gone and it was a $1.65.

I've always enjoyed the game some expansion less than others but there is a million things to do and other than equipment and spell restrictions you can experience a great deal of it and not feel burned by free to play. Not a pay to win game where you can purchase items on the market it's mainly for appearance items and xp boosters. If you decide to play and end up liking it enough that you put some money in, don't ever go through steam for it.
