Champions of Norrath User Reviews
some replay value due to the ability to begin a new game with leveled characters at a different difficulty level, wide range of specialized classes available, satisfying lengthThe bad:
some Playstations do not deal with the dual-layered disc well causing the game to freeze at load screens (however, this can usually be fixed by opening and closing the disk drive once), no side quests, the plot inspires a "been there, done that" reactionSummary:
An awful lot of video games have been cranked out using the Snowblind engine, including Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, and Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance I and II. If I had to pick one as the best, it would be Realms of Everquest: Champions of Norrath. It was the most engaging of the lot, with the best plot line, most exploration, highest level of customization, and most difficult battles. I enjoyed it more than either of the Dark Alliances (and although I've never tried Fallout, I hear it actually succeeded in making a poor game out of the perfection that is Snowblind's engine).
In case you'...
basically everything about it is good, the controls are great, graphics are absolutely amazing, the environment is so damn realistic!!!! the beautiful sets of armor which reflect upon your character instantly when equipped, changing your characters phsyical appearance and stats (if the armor has any stat modifications). if not you can do so yourself adding to it many o fthe different items youll find thruout gameplayThe bad:

The graphics are very sweet, the sounds are awesome, umm... The Items are endless and awesome. I love all of the characters you can be, great spells. I just love to kill Skeletons and Goblins. The Last boss is fun to fight. Yeah basically I give this game a 4.2 for it being superior to almost every other ps2 game out there.
every thing but the storyThe bad:
if you like baulders gate buy this. its the best rpg slasher ever for gameplay and it is totaly additive but the stoyline is boringggggg! but ignore that and buy me (and ply as the dark elf shadow knight he is by far the best charactor in a rpg game ever!) ...
hack n slash rpg, character modifications, different races, tons of armor and weapons, armor and weapons modifiers, special weapons, changing dungeons and maps everytime you play, different opponents, different levels of difficulty, different spells and skills depending on character, 2 characters for each race, some characters can dual weild weapons. PERFECTION!The bad:
champs is a perfect rpg, ranking in with the ff series, no turn based fighting completely hack n slash, realistic environment from forests to dungeons to arctic,lava and desert regions,a must play for everyone esp. rpg fans. this is one of the best rpg's ever made, play with up to 3 other ppl via multitap or play online, multiple bosses and missions to accomplish, 5/5, 2 thumbs up!
Tons of customization, lots to do, and online playThe bad:
Not enough monsters in the manualSummary:
All of us should take out pointy wizards' hats off to the excellent Baldur's Gateark Alliance for bringing Gauntlet-style hack-n-slash thrills back to consoles, and now, Alliance's original developers return with a fantastic action-RPG set in Sony's EverQuest universe. (The big difference? Um..well, thhe orcs look a little different, i guess.)
Champions mimicks everything that i loved about Alliance but actually takes it all a step further, with extensive item customization, enchanced graphics, more variety to its straightforward all-monsters-must-die missions, a ton of levels, and up to...
