    The game has undead and blood, so it's not part of what I would expect from an MMO.
    I want an game that has no blood and undead.
    That is all I need to write for my personal review.

    I honestly think that most of the guys that come here to post review between 0-3 never **** played the game for more than 2hr or just hate it for some stupid reason. Pathetic.

    This is not an actual review. I have never played this game and I really really would like to do so, but I can't thanks to this "monthly fee" bull****. Paying for a game each month? Is this some kind of a sick joke, Blizzard?

    This game is amazing! It's nearly 11 years old and even comparing it to games in the year 2016 it holds it's own. This is the MMO that all others are compared.

This is the MMO that all others are compared. No game has even come close to it despite all the hype over the years. I read a ridiculous comment below that this game has no real PVP?!?!?! I have been a hard core pvper for 10 years! I play on 2 pvp servers and I've tried pvp on so many other games I can't count them all and I always come back to Warcraft. There is so much to do and so much content. If you don't like pvp that's ok, there is a decades worth of pve, over 16,000 quests, mount farming, professions, raiding, realm jumping. You can play with anyone who plays this game no matter where they are in the world or what server they are on. Even better, if you are a new player not only have all the bugs been fixed when you start playing the world is exponentially bigger than when I started. If you love story the story lines are amazing and so in depth and detailed. There are also books based on the game and discuss the story and lore. I personally have always found the expansions appealing. I know that goes against the internet trash talkers who unrealistically think that a company can please millions of people all at once. Maybe I'm just old and keep reality in perspective. I love this game and I will keep playing until I don't. Ten years and the love is still alive. I was upset when I saw that one of the most influential, most successful, longest lasting games ever made had a 93/100 score I was dumbfounded. Then I noticed Skyrim which I played has a 96 so scores are obviously out the window. World of Warcraft is easily 100/100 for me. For The Alliance!!! Expand

    This game has been a personal favorite since Orcs & Humans entered the field of vision. My uncle offered me the game and it was fairly brilliant.

My uncle offered me the game and it was fairly brilliant. My favorite level was the third in human campaign. When Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness had been released a friend of mine spent hours building each other levels to defeat. Needless to say, I've been a fan of Blizzard for a long time. The third although originally I found less interesting as it pieced itself together I became enamored with the lore, which lead me to buy the game.
    I started off tanking, which was simple in vanilla but rocked the house as it went on, after removing myself from tanking I played fury and did badass dps. In Wotlk I was listed in the top 13 of my server, where I had tons of fun and unfortunately for degrading social "economics" I have few friends left that I still talk to every day from this game, but the friends I made in this game have twice as much value as the people I have met in real life. Many people would call this a lack of life, but where they have supported me my own family has failed. Even if I have never met any of them the people I met during the Wotlk arc are some of the most valuable people I will ever meet. I am proud to have met them. Furthermore my subsequent involvements with this game and its functioning through my life are genuinely more faithful than some other people I have met in my life. Trolling aside, the connections I made and lost are invaluable, there is no other game I would rather spend playing during my time online. Especially since many are jokingly far worse, or at least until recently had a poorer social interaction. I guess that is my only complaint, the trolls took over gaming and the classic friendly player is no longer available because of being shut down and shying away from the public. Thanks for being a great game.

    Well this is one of the greatest games of all time, not as fun as the old days, but still great! Maybe not worth playing now if you weren't a long time player but that 10 goes to the old days! A complete different games, oh and no you don't need to spend your life, unless 2H a day is all you've got or have no self control :P

    It's like a second world, I like it :) and story is good too! (not many people even know this game has a story :P)

    and it's sad that there's no more pvp, they say it will be fixed with legion and I hope so pvp was amazing! so was pve.

    and I don't like how they've made it over violence, the wotlk was fine, and even mop was fine! I don't get why people all rage about it!

    And I don't like the fact that every women in the game is in bikini :| but otherwise! amazing game xD

The game allows for individuals who enjoy gaming to immerse themselves in an imaginary world in which they can be whatever they want in some cases as some have stated, you can become the douche bag elitist who spent more time on developing a character, this is indeed sad. We all have our faults! Can't get over the annoying ones in chat Blizzard has always allowed the option for you to /ignore or simply block channels in chat. The game allows for a lot of time yes it is addictive to some, this is good if you do not enjoy outdoor activities the SUN or simply loathe actual human interaction. It is a huge TIME SINK, you will grow out of it and wonder what the hell happened to the last X amount of years. The game has indeed been "dumbed" down. Is it for a new generation of player, or profits? who knows fact is if your shaking your head yes you have grown out of it and are probably going to work or to change the babies diaper, get over it ! The game is not for us anymore. With all of that said I made many friendships that I still have years after I quit the game, why am i reading reviews ?…Think of it as that jerk from High school you hated …probably looked them up on Facebook didn't you? The biggest con i can say about WoW is they took a lot of the human interaction out of the game…you no longer need to stand for hours in your capital city and ask for groups…you simply click a button and go along your merry way until a loud noise scares the crap out of you to tell you your group is ready and your whisped away to fight moderately annoying monsters …cause everyone is like Uber leetsauce now and like can solo hogger , the game has been around for 12 years or so. Take it with a grain of salt you can play for free up to level 20 nothing lost well you will have to install and uninstall (which takes anywhere from 8 hours to a week depending your internet speed) …once again ITS ALL ABOUT TIME how much are you willing to waste?

    Even though I'm a huge Blizzard fan and I love basically all their games, the only one that always flew under my radar was WoW, I never liked MMO genre, so I just ignored it back when it was released and never even tried it.

Recently however, there was a cross-game event to get a new hero for Hearthstone by leveling up a character in Wow to level 20 and to level 20 there is a Starter edition to try out for free, so I just said to myself - why not, let's do it, it should be fun. But it really wasn't. I spent 3 days in this and I don't ever remember playing such a boring rpg with such generic quests. Maybe it was just my starting zone (Chose the beloved night elves), but the story never got interesting, all quests are either fetch quests like go there get the 5 of this and bring it back, or go there kill 6 of these and come back to me and it's going like this over and over. Combat is really bad, there is no challenge, no fluid combat mechanics, if you are used to complex responsive combat systems such as Souls series, this is a joke compared, basically click on thing and wait until it's dead. The online element of other players running around the same world doing the same thing as you seemed more annoying than anything, conflicting with my quests and so on. Yes, the world is huge, there are many different starting zones and I'm sure that back in the day this was a big thing that you could lost yourself for countless days, but from today's point of view it really doesn't have much to offer. That said I definitely see the influence this game had, the only other mmorpg i played was Guild Wars 2 and even though I think that was much better and fun game, you can really see how much it drew from WoW, the interface, all the systems etc. and I'm sure this will be true for many others from this genre. But once again I realized that this genre is probably not for me and I'm gonna stick with good old RPGs with strong stories and interesting quests. 4/10 Expand

    Besides, vanilla was definetely much better than current wow, it was more complex and you had to work your ass off if you wanted decent gear and the possibility of raiding in high level guilds.

    I see a lot of hatred on this game coming with every new expansion. For me personally it's one of the best times of the year, when I can dive into new stories. Even though, they can be a little more childish and naive, I still love all of them.

    Maybe this game is not perfect 10 for all those fancy critics out there, but it's all 10 from my the bottom of my heart.

The game masters, always make me feel like i'm the bad guy when to be honest i was just defending my own rights, just defending myself, using bad language yes, the game masters just plane didn't care about me, or how long i had been playing i'v spent over40.000$ on the products and the subscription alone, they don't care about me, or what i have to say, i have been suspended for things other accounts did as well, and the game masters never fix it, never apologize, i'm to this day truly dissapointed at the way the game has changed who i am as a person, and the way i'm treated on it, and by it's game masters, if you have kids, don't let them play this game because (warning) you won't ever see them again, and i can promise you that, no shopping, no eating dinner with them, no going out with them, unless you can minimize that down to 1-2 times a week or if you wan't to keep them busy, sure spent the $14.99 for a subscription, OH and if your childs account gets hacked don't worry about it because the game masters will just tell them they can't do anything about it, it's always the same bs, and take it from someone who has played for 9 years, 9! that's just reddiculous, i wish i could do something, i wish i could turn back time to when i first saw this game, i never had gotten it if i knew this would be the outcome writing a review, because the game masters, don't care about me, or what i have to say, and i don't have the money to sue them, so it's really just up to me to try and tell people the truth about the game, i don't hate it i'm mostly just disapointed, iv wasted my time, my life, and my family's money on it because i don't have any, granted this game was an outlit but, an outlit should not last 9 years.

All I gotta say to the people trying to get back into the game or just start playing for the first time is that is is very addictive but the thing is that you will make friends, you'll have fun, you'll have a huge sense of achievement (especially when you start lvl cap content) I personally managed to keep in touch with people who live hundreds of miles away from me! It wasn't like we were just talking to a phone, it's really like you have a person next to you. It's a second, more exciting and adventurous world!! I recommend it to everyone that likes rpgs and that kind of fantasy games. There is one problem though. You won't really have time to get into other games because World of Warcraft will take a lot of your free time.

The game itself caused me to moan much too often, at the "go across the entire country to talk to this dude" and "kill 83 of these things for a belt" quests that you need to complete in order to progress.

    Playing wow for 11 years.I quit this season. Being 30 now, with real life having to work out of town, it's just not possible to keep my conquest cap up. I'll come back when wow realizes that rated pvp(Arena/RBGs) should not have a gearing phase. At the start of any arena season, everyone should have full pvp gear for rated PvP.

    Gearing pvp gear with conquest cap should be for world pvp

    After all those years Blizzard still got it. WoW might not be super innovative, but it's still best MMO there is. Any other MMO isn't even close to the number of the possibilities, there is in WoW. Graphics design might not be the best on the market, but devs are constantly improving game visuals. For me it is, and it will be for a long time the King of MMOs.

    This game is historic due to its popularity. It is by far, the most succesful video game in history accounting for more than $1B a year in profit at its peak. It is a monster of a game that has been around for more than a decade and still has millions of users.

    The good news is that WoW is a good game. There was a lot to do and plenty of classes and quests to keep you busy for months on end. The bad news is that this was a very "casual" game and due to its success, it garnered in a decade of watered down games across all genres in order to capitalize on the less skilled gamers especially from the big companies. The funny part is that young gamers look at games like Demon Souls and think that they are a new concept but they are just pale shadows of great games that came before that required the use of mind and not just memorization. Back to WoW, for the most part, it did everything well but made many things easier. Combat was standard but enemies were very forgiving and exploration was trivial. Crafting was made easier. Class build variety was good allowing for various builds. Exploration was mundane but that is true for all casual style games until Guild Wars 2 added puzzles and random events which made things more tolerable. Quests were similar to other MMO's and raiding was straight forward and much easier than older MMO's. Regardless of ease however, it was still a fun game albeit not my favorite MMO of all time. That honor remains with Everquest with Guild Wars 2 playing runner up.

It all gets super boring in the end at least for me. Let's not even talk about the subscription. I've already talked about it a bit in the beginning of this review, but I feel like it's not enough.
    Let me bring up that the subscription you have to pay per month, is pretty big. I mean 15 euros for a month of grinding and repetitive quests? Doesn't seem like that good of a deal to me.

    World of Warcraft was one of the greatest games of it time, but the problem with MMORPGs is they are much like bars. You can go to a brand new bar and the opening is great, the interior is great, the music(content) is great, you can have a good time, but after some time it loses it glamor. If you don't continue to have friends go to the joint, then there is less and less reason to return.World of Warcraft was one of the greatest games of it time, but the problem with MMORPGs is they are much like bars.

If you don't continue to have friends go to the joint, then there is less and less reason to return. New expansions are like grand re-openings drawing players back, but every time you hit that cycle where you wonder why you are playing. Then you have to start wondering what is missing and why you or your friends don't stay.

    The biggest problem is repetitiveness and occurs with all games of the genre. Re-playability is reduced with theme-park style games. At some point grinding and hack-n-slash combat become boring and causes players to lose interest. Another problem is immersion. If the player doesn't begin to feel the character is important to the world and those around, the player never becomes hooked. Immersion is successful when the character makes an impact on the world and those around. As a comparison Star wars galaxies an often hot debated topic of the past had great immersion in the days of sandbox gaming where the character was yours, the land could be cultivated and thus yours, the economy was mostly player driven, and equipment constructed could be yours often having unique masterpieces. World of Warcraft misses in this and its themepark progression and cartoony characters and combat.

    Finally, its about community. If the game appeals to young teens who recently just got done playing Wizard 101 or Club Penguin and have moved to something bigger, it will have a huge community. Problem is many of the teens on these games have lost all etiquette and it shows with the constant duel requests, nature of chat, and other losses of social behavior. Thus WoW is now the game for early post-pubescent children. Older adults I know that still play WoW do so out of the same action as drinking the same old beer and not moving on to fine wine or champagne.

    Good - A huge and often vibrant and diverse world with lots of different options. Leveling can be quite fun for a while.

    Bad - Pretty much every server is filled with the type of douche bags I described above. An example; somebody in the general chat is looking for a player to join a party, but then specifies exactly what stats they must have and that they must have great gear. No seriously, this actually happens, there are actually people as sad as this. Its like, where the hell is the fun in that?

    The graphics are far too cartoony, most armor looks crap as you will most likely be wearing pieces from different sets which seldom look good together. The gameplay is now terribly dated and boring.

    Verdict - WoW IS NOT and never has been a great game. If you can deal with or ignore most of the other players it is just ok, average at best but not really worth the cash. Also got to laugh at the review that stated 'by far one of the best PC games of all time' lol, I assume the person was joking, or smoking crack at the time. Not only is not even in the top 100 best pc games of all time, its not even the best MMO.

Yes there are a few trolls here and there in WoW but it is handled so well, just a simple "mute this person" and move on with your life. I've been playing since launch and only had to encounter a few losers that I simply just muted+reported and never heard of again. Not to mention with all the money being sent to WoW, they use it wisely ! They create expansion after expansion, idea after idea, yes a lot of people weren't happy with the MoP expansion, so the they took in count of all the ideas people had and based it in the newest expansion. WoW is just a magnificant game, its too much to write about...

Blizzard doesn't care about keeping the players that like to play, Blizzard likes keeping the players that like to pay. Which is why they have had 12 million players in 2010 and now have 6.8 million in 2014. But are now making 4.76 billion in 2014 opposed to the 1.1 billion in 2011.

    Not bad, but not the best. This game is incredibly stale and for some reason a subscription based MMO.

    WoW outshines every other MMORPG out there. I've played them all, Rift, Tera, GW2, GW, Wildstar, Elder Scrolls Online etc. all of them were no where near WoW in terms of content and quality.

    I'm not trying to sell WoW here, but I think it's better to pay a monthly subscription for a great game that never gets dry, due to new content that gets released pretty frequently. Also, many different aspects of PVP and PVE to keep you entertained for a long time. As mentioned before, I would rather pay a monthly subscription for a great game, instead of buying new games all the time, because you finish them too fast or you've done everything it has to offer (looking at you GW2). Actually, since I started playing WoW, I've saved money, because I haven't randomly bought new games all the time.

    Honestly, I think WoW is just as good as when it launched. There have been made changes and some of them work better than others. But change needs to happen or else WoW would hit the F2P model as the other contenders, which isn't quite as succesful as one might think, due to low quality, lack of content and pay to win models. (there are of course exceptions in some F2P games mostly MOBAs though like LoL, Dota 2, SMITE etc.) WoW is still unbalanced, some classes rule PVE and some classes rule PVP. Some classes rule one specific class and gets ruled by another. I don't think Blizzard will ever solve that issue, but have any MMORPG ever solved that? I haven't seen it yet. But again, if one class wouldn't rule the other and every class were equally good at almost everything - Then what seperates them, what is the meaning of classes, if they don't have certain strong advantages, as well as disadvantages?

    My point is; it's still a great game, I believe the price is high but it is justified through the amount of content and the quality it has, which I haven't found in any other game yet, counting both single-player titles as well as multi-player titles.

    10/10 - I've not seen my girlfriend for weeks, since I started playing. It has consumed EVERYTHING (hope you get the reference from the latest trailer) ;)

The combat is fun with lots of ways to play with just one class. PvP can be fun at lower levels but at higher levels it's not fun at all because characters are so unbalanced. PvP is based just on your level so you and the opponent can both be level 90 or what ever but there item level gear is ten times better that yours.

    The definition of dropping the ball, World of Warcraft is as of today the biggest misguided MMO I've ever seen. Class & race balances are shuffled around with the same kind of care and thought as a rabid wolf trying to eat a bloody stake and I don't mean any puns with that due to the ongoing balance right now having hunters be the masters of DPS, burst and manouverability all at once.The definition of dropping the ball, World of Warcraft is as of today the biggest misguided MMO I've ever seen.

    All that is left of this soulless game is meaningless grinding in the form of laughable "daily missions" which was Blizzard's trumphcard to try and make people come back to the game but ultimately only served to reinforce the notion that blizzard priorities income>fun instead of making genuinely fun and enjoyable products.

    I can only hope that they will not also screw up Heroes of the Storm.

    Looking back ten years I would say this game was hands-down one of the best things to every come along. I really cannot find anything to hold against it that isn't petty sounding (to me). I had a core group of 10 real life friends who all played this game at the same time and that really made this game amazing to me. I can't get those gaming years back!

    This is the best video game (by far) of the many our family has played and owns. There are so many different ways this game can be played that the possibilities are nearly endless. I have adult and teenage children and we all play together and work to accomplish common goals. We are able to stay in touch and spend time together in 3 different states!

    An amazing game I put many of hours into this game. It got too expensive and I wasn't able to keep playing it for that reason. If only things in life were cheaper I would still be playing it everyday. There was tones of stuff to do and could keep you bust for hours on end.

    I suppose those that find like minded players with which to play these MMORPGs may enjoy the camaraderie of working together to level up and customise their characters but, as a game, World of Warcraft is just downright dull.

    There is no nuance to the combat or skilful platforming required with the game only rewarding the player for the amount of time they spend glued to their screen. Virtually every game in the genre has copied World of Warcraft but that is down to its sales success not the quality of its gameplay I'm afraid.

The developers simply "borrow" ideas and concepts away from other places and put them into this game. 95% of the stuff in this game being uninteresting/boring/poorly made, the RPG part of the game is especially poorly made since 99% of the quests involve players going to point B, from point A, and killing an "X" amount of creatures, thus making players want to skip this part of the game as fast as possible, so they can get to the maximum level and start doing PvP, the only brilliant part this game has to offer, it used to have nice story as well, inherited from Warcraft III: the frozen throne, but they killed the main character(Arthas) and replaced him with pandas. I honestly don't know how people can pay tens of euros/dollars each month for just PvP and maybe some raids. One of the most overrated games ever, the only reason I'm giving it a 6/10 is because of the PvP, which is(was) fantastic, unfortunately besides murdering Arthas, they also murdered any fun players with rogues could have had, even on PvP servers, by making infiltration in enemy capitals useless and with 0 fun had, thanks to the whining of players and the stupidity of the developers.

    less : graphics, background, scenario, leveling up, quests, potions between fights, exploration, duel pvp, factions vs factions

    My opinion is an opinion of player who played WoW for almost 4 years (2007-2011), spending over 2500 hours for it (and still never reaching the top tier armor or entering top guild).

    First of all, WoW is always FUN! No matter how many time you spend and which sides of game you prefer. Second, from the very beggining, unlike most Korean MMOs, developers tend to limit your timespending
    My opinion is an opinion of player who played WoW for almost 4 years (2007-2011), spending over 2500 hours for it (and still never reaching the top tier armor or entering top guild).

    First of all, WoW is always FUN! No matter how many time you spend and which sides of game you prefer.

    Second, from the very beggining, unlike most Korean MMOs, developers tend to limit your timespending by limiting maximum quantity of top tier dungeons and raids you can visit per day or per week, respectively, and doing about the same in PvP (limiting the number of top tier badges you can acquire per week). Ofcourse people who strive to play more go into grinding, gathering, crafting, trading or runmultiple characters. Please, don't spend your life playing videogames!
    Third, Blizzard is constanly adding something new to the game. While back then in 2000's it required to reach max level, indeed, to have really enjoy the game, now some many possibilities are added that you may enjoy the game from level 10, literally. While leveling also became much faster. It became possible to reach level 40 in one day without a severe grinding. Even faster if your acdcount is reffered to friend, and you get leveling boost.

    Fourth, it becomes really repetitive only in two occasions: 1) you agree for it yourself, usually it refers to cases when you are grinding reputation for some exotic mounts, usually takes between two weeks and one month and is never obligatory; 2) you are striving to be top tier in PvE, but when you reach such ambitions you are most likely to integrate into community that much, that repeatedness won't be a severe burden.
    Of course, game will require time, but there is no MMO, which fits those who want to spend couple of hours once per week.

    Fifth, you will be astounded, how reach the RP and LORE part is, now rich the story of Azeroth and neighbouring world is and outdated, little grotesque, graphics doesn't prevent enjoying the atmosphere. When you feel yourself a true hero of Azeroth, which is imposied by long questlines, it is difficult to compare with anything. You'll be wishing to come back again and again, and then you will have a feeling of nostalgy about the game.

    And the last but not the least, what really happened to the game over almost a decade? It became much easier, what many old-school WoWers (incl. myself) found frustrating, but for new players that must be good news!

    Thank you for spending your time reading my review, I hope I have helped you to form your own opinion concerning the game.

    P.S.: I quit WoW in the late 2011, due to some circumstances, but I really miss the game and often think of returning back to it.

As the years went, some of the problems the game had were solved while other problems were created. Some things were improved, such as the graphic engine or reducing the number of people required for raiding. As it is now however, the game is unimmersive, it's atmoshere is gone and the social dimension of it disappeared. Yet the world still has its beauty and under the layers of more recent additions, the genius of the original is still to be felt. The game began as an RPG and headed towards the design of many Facebook games lately. It's very much about achievements and numbers rather than people, persistent world and a story. As such it still appeal to many, but the best times this game had are long gone. Be it shortly after Wrath of the Lich King expansion was released, I would have given this 10 points. The same goes for the game as it was before this expansion. The breaking point for this game has been the first post-Ulduar patch 3.2. Both in terms of the growth of the player-base and in terms of game design decisions. With few exceptions, the game has gone mostly downhill since then. Even though I have many precious memories from this game, I would not recommend it in its current state. Even though it is a subscription based game, a cash shop has made its way into the game, which made the overal feeling even cheaper. Many elements of the current game make it mosly average, but still worth playing if you just want to relax, take it easy and if you like games based on collecting achievements and other things.

    Well, writing a review about World of Warcraft is like stand at crossroads and think where to go. This game for sure took a big part in my life as well as in my heart. You may say that such games are waste of time, but actually whole our life is a time killer...

    Anyway, the game is amazing in many aspects! Blizzard tried to do so the player is fully immersed in the world of Warcraft.

    Anyway, the game is amazing in many aspects! Blizzard tried to do so the player is fully immersed in the world of Warcraft. The soundtrack is beautiful piece of art that makes you feel every piece of this virtual world as if it was real. The visuals... it's a mind-blowing. The graphic artists done a lot of great work. You will be surprised many times during your travel how talented are the people who made this. Every location has it's own story and you starting to believe in it. The storyline also great. For all those priceless moments I got in this game I give 8 score. I can't give it 10 points because of it's gameplay. Many hours will be wasted on grinding, especially on high levels. I don't like the concept of instances that ruins the integrity of the world. I don't like the casual PVP, you can't lose your items so you don't feel much adrenaline in combats. The character inventory is boring. The world could be more interactive.

    Despite haters, i strongly recommend this game if you want to experience being in a whole other world, adventuring alongside of other players immersed as you are.

    -Rich and exciting world -Plenty of different races, stories and flavors -Incredibly good animations -Really nice game system overall, from quests to UI, to inventory and health/resource -Beautiful artwork, stylized

    -Fantastic class design (all classes feel unique and fun to play)
    -Combat is fast paced and addictive
    -Tons, tons and tons of content
    -Well designed around playing with others
    -The best endgame out there by far, raids are fun and challenging
    -Very polished in every front

    This game is insanely good and the best mmo by orders of magnitute.
    I played it for years and it awarded me one of the best experiences i had in games by far. It's an adventure worth checking.

    Pre expansion WoW was possibly the best game I've ever played. It felt like a living world, so immersive. It may not have been perfect but perhaps those less convenient things only added to the experience.

I have only good memories of those days and I still listen to the soundtracks and think back to a time where life was so simple and carefree hanging out in westfall, goldshire, stormwind, ironforge and the bonding time with my brother and friends. It just had so much to offer and so many different environments. What I really like is that the world was so big that there were places that were just there. Unfortunate that the expansions lost touch somehow and that they are dragging this game out still. But for what it was back then, it deserves a solid 10. Expand

    World of Warcraft is simply an amazing game that features endless innovation and growth. Additional content and ever changing character balance tweaks keep players challenged. Each expansion introduces new character classes and changes. Players that want to "Finish" the game are missing the point. World of Warcraft is a sandbox game there is no end. You are never forced to doWorld of Warcraft is simply an amazing game that features endless innovation and growth. Additional content and ever changing character balance tweaks keep players challenged. Each expansion introduces new character classes and changes. Players that want to "Finish" the game are missing the point. World of Warcraft is a sandbox game there is no end. You are never forced to do anything in the game, you can even level cap and tweak your character at a particular level. Leveling options are expansive to say the least with at least 7 that I am aware of; 1. Follow Quest Chains and do quests. 2. Farm Mobs without regard for quests. 3. Play PVP Battlegrounds. 4. Do Mining or Herbalism to gain experience. 5. Do dungeons and raids. 6. Engage in Pet Battles. 7. Complete seasonal quests.

    The game has a wide range of Professions that can be followed and levelled and features a very active trading community via the Auction House or in-game trade.

    Although deployment of expansions or occasional content updates usually have some bugs or glitches, up until now Blizzard has always fixed or removed content that causes problems.

    Given the choice between paying for World of Warcraft subscription or buying a new game each month the choice is an easy one for Millions of World of Warcraft players.

    For those who claim "Vanilla WOW was the best", they are ignoring the occasional upgrades to the graphic engine, innovation to skill trees, quest assistance which eliminates the need of quest helper add-ons.

    Most regular players play for a few to several hours a week, however there are some players who simply have to be the best and end up sacrificing disproportionate time for rewards gained. This is not a game issue though, it is a player issue.

    World of Warcraft creates an illusion of a living, ever changing environment and has generated a backdrop of Lore entrenched in ageless conflicts and subterfuge and betrayals.

    Trying to level as fast as possible is almost futile and detracts from the enjoyment that can be derived from just exploring everything the game has to offer and enjoying level appropriate content and challenges.

    Because the game is massively multiplayer with a strong interaction focus players may experience both good and bad interactions in the game and each guild will have a different feel based on the Guild master's guild design choices, morals, ethics and of course the general membership in the guild. Some guilds are helpful, while others exploit their members, so players may need to do quite a bit of guild hopping to find a guild that suits their game focus and social requirement.

    Players who respond negatively are most likely experiencing "Resistance to Change", however the one thing this game does expect from players is to constantly respond to continuous change and progression.

    Blizzard also regularly re-balance the game creating subtle imbalances which shift advantages and disadvantages between classes of character or talent specializations within a class. The deck gets shuffled more or less with each expansion or new PVP arena season.

    Players can expect to get many years of top notch interactive enjoyment as Blizzard devotes a lot of resources to keep changing, updating and enhancing the game. How many more expansions there will be is difficult to assess, but it is certain that players have at least one or two more to look forward to after Mists of Pandaria.

    This game has a lot to offer, and Blizzard have done a fine job maintaining a steady growth of new content and challenges. This game is overwhelming in that there is always something new to do and often not enough time to do it all. However for the many years of quality and dedication this game deserves the highest score possible.

The graphics suits the game very well. There is obvious effort put into making this game. And then, your subscription runs out. This game should not have a subscription fee, it just feels like... To be honest Candy Crush Saga, and it is the same story with ANY subscription fee game. The vanilla game should be completely free, the only things you should have to pay for is the DLC, as it makes perfect sense to give players an opportunity for a new challenge. The only problem with this game is the vanilla subscription fee, but that is a VERY BIG problem, it is also the main cause of hackers in this game. The game has all the aspects of a f2p, but isn't.

    A terrible MMO that has became a shadow of it's former self. It's become nothing more than a vessel to exploit the ignorant and uninformed with it's extortionate expansion prices and draconian subscription. Do yourself a favor and play TERA or Guild Wars 2 instead. They are cheaper, have much better combat and infinitely better quests.

As for PvP, the game has no real PvP focus, it never has, they just offer it. Regarding the future of this game, it's already undergoing a slow painful death. If your willing to purchase 100+ dollars in expansions and a subscription on top of that by all means go ahead. Just keep in mind it's not as good as it was. Collapse

Universal acclaim - based on 57 Critics

Critic score distribution:
  1. Positive: 56 out of 57
  2. Negative: 0 out of 57
  1. Combines not only technical prowess and fine-tuned gameplay, but pleasure as well, making this the new standard for the competition. Word to the other companies: this is the reason your registered users are dwindling.
  2. 90
    The game isn't flawless, nor is it technically finished - a good many quests fall into a "kill 20 of enemy X and collect 9 of item Y" pattern, a lot of promised end-game content still isn't in, and there are still bugs being squashed - but it's easily the closest MMORPGs have yet come to perfection. If this one doesn't hook you, nothing will.
  3. 90
    Although it's not as technologically proficient as "EverQuest II," World of Warcraft has a more pronounced sense of style...If you're looking for a new MMORPG, then the World of Warcraft is the very first place you should visit.
