World of Warcraft: Cataclysm
OK, where are the pandas?
Review World of Warcraft actually bears more than a passing resemblance to it’s new - or old, depending on your perspective - villain Deathwing. Since its launch in 2004, it has trampled through the lives of millions, wreaking havock and destruction while altering the landscape of massively multiplayer online role-playing games forever.
Burn the Village People
Cataclysm is the third expansion set to be announced at Blizzcon 2009, which isn't really that long ago but has seemed like an eternity for those of us who hit 80 and got bored with Wrath of the Daily Quest – sorry - Lich King, long ago. To entice me and my monthly subscription fees back, Blizzard have woken Evil old Deathwing the Dragon. The Daddy of the black dragon flight is not a happy bunny and the fallout is some jawdropping environment changes to Azeroth.
One question, though: wasn’t this expansion supposed to see us brave heroes entering the Emerald Dream? Not to mention all the talk awhile back of underwater WoW and having Naga as a new playable race. Making the Black Dragon flight the main baddies once again seems a bit predictable, in spite of all the world-changing (Lava? Again?)
Shut your goblin
Anyway, what I’m excited about are the two new races Cataclysm has to offer: the Worgen coming down for Alliance, and Goblins now siding with the Horde. I may be excited but I’m not happy. I am Horde through and through; why are you punishing me with such a lame new race - goblins? WTF?! Should've been Worgen for Horde - no human state - and Pandaren for Alliance. Blizzard has been promising Pandaren as a playable race since forever. I imagine I’m not the only one severely disappointed by the lack of fuzzy brewmasters. Is Blizzard afraid of their awesomeness?
But screw it, for this review I will turn traitor…. Worgen for the win!

Why am I secretly pleased......
....that I haven't got the first clue what the reviewer is talking about?
That was the worst review ive ever read
Was that written by a 12 year old or something. Blizzard have done a fantastic job with the game. the level cap being 85 isnt really a problem as everyone is forgetting about the level cap being 85 is about 60% of the expansion work went into the original wow game levels (1-60) they are virtually new and any review that only mentions level 80-85 in cataclysm isnt even reviewing half the game and there is a hell of a lot of content at 85 anyways and personally i dont want a situation where i have to level a new character to level 120 before i meet any people( like what happens in most MMOs after a few expansions). and there are a percentage of players that do the levelling game and then get fedup and cancel, wouldnt matter if the level cap in the game was expanded by 20 levels
if your levelling to 85 and not changing your teir 10 gear out by the end of hyjal/vashir your doing something radically wrong, i got a random blue staff drop and it was better than my heroic Teir 10 staff. you need to change your gear rapidly
and secondly Pandarean as a playable race ?? WTF blizzard never promised that ever, the fans have been calling for them as a playable race but blizzard have never said they would be even present in the game. The pandarean were originally a april's fool joke that got out of hand anyways and if they put them into the game they'd never get a licence to sell WoW in china again
I'm guessing this review is written for those who already live and breath WoW, as I didn't understand a word of that.
