    The drums of war thunder once again Return to a lost era of Azeroth and experience the timeless stories that defined this world at war.

    World of Warcraft Classic is a faithful recreation of the original World of Warcraftit runs a bit smoother on today's computers, but the game still looks and feels like you're playing World of Warcraft from 2006. Combat mechanics, original character models and skill trees all contribute to a truly authentic experience, as do your interactions with other players. Your reliance on others to take on the world was at the heart of the original WoW and is at the heart of World of Warcraft Classic.

    * Experience the game as it was before the release of any of its expansion sets, and journey back to its beginnings.
    * Venture forth into epic encounters such as Molten Core, Onyxia and Maraudon at launchas players progress, we'll introduce more content like Alterac Valley, the Ahn'Qiraj War Effort and Naxxramas.

    Despite all its flaws, World of Warcraft Classic is one of the best MMORPGs that you can play. This is proof of an excellent game, but it also shows that mmorpgs as a whole stand still.

    The WoW Classic experience is so unique to the industry that it's bound to generate discussion well beyond its first two weeks of release. Blizzard delivered on exactly what it was supposed to, and WoW Classic is, in that regard, perfect. That doesn't mean it's the perfect game - just that it's a perfect game for a specific group of people, and maybe a very good game for those who will come after. Frankly, it's remarkable that something so inherently offensive to modern-day MMORPG sensibilities has the audaciousness to be this incredible.

    WoW is back with the classic experience. It’s hard, it’s rough… and it’s beautiful. A great way to rediscover the most important MMO ever made.

    World of Warcraft Classic is still the exact same MMO I remembered losing so many nights to as a teenager, and 15 years later it's still just as fun and as frustrating as I'd hoped it would be.

    Repeating the same title that came out fifteen years ago, in an almost slavish way, has done nothing but silence the small but noisy part of the community that, for years, has been clamoring for the origins of Azeroth, annoyed by the excessive simplification of the title.

    When the brunt of your game consists of slamming buttons to fight off beasts, you better make it feel good to distract us from the repetitive nature of it all.

    I've played every expansion of WoW, and started in the vanilla days. This brings back excellent memories and companionship. Retail currentlyI've played every expansion of WoW, and started in the vanilla days. This brings back excellent memories and companionship. Retail currently is a run around drag that you do by yourself until you are raid ready, it's about worthless. Classic almost forces you to explore and team up with other players to adventure and overcome the hurdles. I really enjoy playing with other random people in various zones. I've also found a very high percentage of people to be mature and like-minded. Classic doesn't hand everything to you like retail expansions do, and the so-called QOL improvements that aren't in Classic is what makes the game great. I have been enjoying this for a month, and plan to for many more months. Don't take these negative reviews of high queues and such. I live on a high pop server and don't get queued and there are plenty of people around to help and plenty of things to do. I rather appreciate a game that is hard to accomplish something rather than button mashing 3 buttons in retail. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Rating this game is quite hard because the leveling 1-60 is extremely well done, the main reason is the fact that by leveling you learn every map and after getting to level cap you will feel it as your trip into this game. The negative aspect are the end game pve contents that feels boring and ripetitive( i got also ragnaros and onyxia killed) because boss in raid and in dungeon dont have a lot of mechanics and feel like random trash mob.

    I don't have the nostalgia for playing vanilla (started in BC) but from what I can tell, all the little QOL changes to minor system likeI don't have the nostalgia for playing vanilla (started in BC) but from what I can tell, all the little QOL changes to minor system like dialog and looting have all gone alongside pretty much all the content that I actually enjoy about the game.Additionally, some of the bad stuff has come back. Does anyone actually enjoy the weapon skills system?? The best thing I could say about this on a good day is that it is average. Sometimes it is good that things change. Expand
