| Best and most accurate documentary about World of Warcraft to date.
There have been three attempts at using the World of Warcraft as the subject of a documentary and I am glad to say that the third time is the charm. Both of the previous attempts fixate on the known stereotypes and the cautionary tales that have given massively multiplayer online games an undeserved bad rap.

"Race to World First", breaks that mold and gives us a chance to see the positive things that can evolve from a social game like WoW. It also offers a glimpse into the lifestyles of the very best players in the world and shows us what it takes to rule a place like Azeroth. The film doesn't steer clear of the hazards of excessive game play but what I love about this film is that it doesn't dwell on it. "Race to World First" is an eloquent and accurate exploration into the communities that comprise these modern day, online worlds and is an expertly crafted film that left me wanting another film.
