    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.

    Was a great game 15 years ago, but playing it on this day is not as fun.
    Biggest issue is the people playing it. I think most of them dont

    Just a re-release of an outdated mmorpg. Filled with artificial content, including the "classic" grindy go-there kill 5 mobs, get 10 drops,Just a re-release of an outdated mmorpg. Filled with artificial content, including the "classic" grindy go-there kill 5 mobs, get 10 drops, pick this thing type quests. and a stone age combat system for good measure.

    This version of the game has not aged well, its just a nostalgia cash grab for the veteran wow players.

    There's a reason a lot of things were changed in Burning Crusade and beyond. World of Warcraft Classic shows us exactly why that is.There's a reason a lot of things were changed in Burning Crusade and beyond. World of Warcraft Classic shows us exactly why that is.

    Between the slow, boring, story-less levelling process and the abhorrent and ridiculous to-hit stat, I don't know which part of WoW Classic is worse. The world is certainly full of interesting long questlines but the reality is that very few people will ever bother to do them because of how redundant and boring they become. Raiding is pathetically simple and shows to prove how people were off their meds when they said "vanilla was harder", because it really wasn't.

    Classes aren't well balanced at all and the questing process is so boring and slow that the majority of people are resorting to mass spamming dungeons with the same team compositions, making certain classes completely irrelevant. World PvP is still easy to exploit, even when ganking players over and over I never felt any degree of satisfaction and I bet neither did those I was ganking. There was no feeling of immersion being ganked at low levels myself; it only served to make the already painfully slow game even slower.

    The only real challenge Classic has is how long you're able to last before alt-f4ing into a much better way to spend your time. I guess the saving grace is that players who already sub to the main game can access this thing at no additional cost (for now) but considering there are far better MMORPGs than World of Warcraft in general, that's still not a great use of your money.

    If you want an immersive, detailed and story-driven MMORPG with actually challenging endgame raids, play Final Fantasy XIV instead.

    If you want a grind-heavy game with no story beyond basic world building, that actually rewards players for said grind, play Ragnarok Online.

    If you want a nostalgic, no-compromise, community-heavy legacy MMORPG with a fun story and great endgame content, sub to Final Fantasy 11.

    Lots of people were harping on about how Blizzard was wrong, flexing the large viewing on Twitch, but considering viewer numbers began plummeting only one week later and are (at the time of writing) about the same as League of Legengs, I'll hazard a guess that Blizzard was completely right: You thought you wanted it. But you don't.
