Everquest is quite an old game, and being so many people have played it at least a few times in its long history. This makes for a fun game to revisit to get back some of those feelings of many years ago.
The free version of the game only has four classes available, those that pay money can get more, but for how old this game is it does appear to be a bit pricey in order to get what many other games offer for free.
Due to the game not having a huge open world but more of a main city hub, the city is able to have a lot of detail (since it is smaller than many MMOs). This detail, even though the game is a couple of years old hold up quite well and makes for a very immersive environment.
The game does not offer much in the way of an open world to explore, instead there is a central city (that is on the smaller side) to explore, then the rest of the areas are pretty linear in their design. This does not make a good choice of game for those that like to explore large vast worlds.
Age of Conan is an unrated game, meaning the content can stay mature and closely match the themes found in the original books. This will easily appeal to those looking for a more adult MMO or to fans of the series.
For those that like to causally play an MMO, the late game found in Age of Conan may be a bit too difficult, especially if the player is not prepared by having read u on what builds and levels they need to be in order to complete the more difficult quests.
