Cataclysm Review


With the third expansion Cataclysm to the epic MMO saga known a World of Warcraft with an unprecedented 13 million users the standards were almost, ridiculously, set high.  After reaching the level cap and playing some of the new content on both factions.  I can tell you this in comparison to the two previous this is my favorite by far.  To give a quick rundown on the story line Deathwing a big scary dragon is back from Warcraft II with a vengeance and has changed the face of Azeroth.

That is just the reader’s digest version the explain the lore and story this expansion brings literally would take a book, and on that note there is one you can buy at most places you buy books.  Just on reactions to customers worldwide on the launch, Cataclysm sold 3.3 million copies in 24 hours.  That is the current record for computer game sales, this shows there is no competition in this stage of the game. Though of all the previous expansions this is the most user friendly for new players contemplating buying the game, so don’t be afraid to try it out if you’re new to this type of game.  If I had to break down the great things of Cataclysm into a top ten they would be these:

  1. Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor revamped.
  2. Two new races Worgen and Goblins.  (About time Goblins picked a side, dang fence sitters).
  3. Underwater Zone. (Let’s ride a seahorse).
  4. Heroic instances more difficult (Goodbye tank and spank, hello crowd control).
  5. New starting areas and streamlined for new users.
  6. New classes for races (Because who didn’t want to be a Undead Hunter).
  7. More phasing then in Wrath of The Lich King.
  8. Flying mounts in Azeroth.  (Now we can see what Ironforge looks like from above).
  9. Quests of greater variety (I swear next person I have to escort I am going to let Murlocs eat them).
  10. Streamlined talent trees.

Overall I would give this game a 5 out of 5. Way to go, Blizzard.
