| The most AMAZING Online Computer Game ever Created
Only Two words sum up World Of Warcraft, Sheer Brilliance. This is unlike any game you will ever play. You will be hooked as soon as you start to play as this game is SO darn addictive !! World of Warcraft is a massively multi-player online game that enables thousands of players to come together online and battle against the world and each other. Players from across the globe can leave the real world behind and undertake grand quests and heroic exploits in a land of fantastic adventure. At long last, the world of Azeroth, first glimpsed in Warcraft 1 and further enhanced in subsequent strategy games, is realised in glorious detail and ready for the arrival of millions of prospective players. World of warcraft is 20 times better than all current MMORPG's, simply because it is 20 times more FUN.There are a few reasons why WOW is ten times MORE FUN than other MMORPG's. Attack cities and kill its leader with 39 other people. Lots of PvP, Lots of fun. Warsong gulch is like capture the flag in Quake except its an RPG game instead of a First Person Shooter. Endless hours of fun there. The Battlegound Alterac valley. 40 vs 40 PvP-zone that is huge and even has PvP-quests in it. Hours of FUN. A huge pvp arena where fighting is too the death. A chest is dropped in an arena every 3 hours and opening it is interesting as pvp is free for all in there and everyone wants to open it and will do everything they can to stop you. MORE FUN. Instance Dungeons for level 60's like Stratholme, Scholomance, Black rock depths, Lower blackrock spire, upper blackrock spire. Dire maul north, dire maul west, dire maul east, Molten Core, Blackwing lair and so on and so on. Plus all the high level elite bosses roaming around the world that takes 30-40 people some effort to take down. More instances and brand new content added EVERY month in new patches (this is the reason why we pay our monthly fee, and we are well rewarded). A talent system that enables you to define you character from everyone else and also an Ability to redo your talents whenever you want which lets me do what I want when I want and the way I like it. OK this game does have it's downside's. Don't all games? The main problem with this game is the company that created it. Servers go offline with no warning, some servers can have bad lag at peak times, and most of the servers are full with queue times when you first log in. The customer service from Blizzard Entertainment is Auful, but it is getting better as time goes on. Also, a lot of younger players play this game and some more mature people will find this difficult, as playing with 12 year old children that spam the chat channels is not their idea of an Online game. If this does not appeal to you, play Everquest 2 instead. As a final word, World of Warcraft is the best Computer game available for the PC to date, and seeing its huge amount off success across the world, will be for a long time.

Critic Reviews

Did You Know?


In the expansion there is a quest called "The Kessel Run" a reference to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) and the popular kessel run made by smugglers.


Undead female: Yes, they're real, they're not mine, but they're real.
