An ancient evil lies dormant within Deepholm, the domain of earth in the Elemental Plane.

Hidden away in a secluded sanctuary, the corrupted Dragon Aspect Deathwing has waited, recovering from the wounds of his last battle against Azeroth and biding his time until he can reforge the world in molten fire.

Soon, Deathwing the Destroyer will return to Azeroth, and his eruption from Deepholm will sunder the world, leaving a festering wound across the continents. As the Horde and Alliance race to the epicenter of the cataclysm, the kingdoms of Azeroth will witness seismic shifts in power, the kindling of a war of the elements, and the emergence of unlikely heroes who will rise up to protect their scarred and broken world from utter devastation.

Pros: This item is no longer required as all World of Warcraft accounts now include Cataclysm. If you pay $20 for original World of Warcraft, you now automatically get Burning Crusade, Wratch of the Lich King and Cataclysm.

Cons: See pros.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother great entry in the WoW line

Pros: WoW: Cataclysm is an excellent entry in the WoW storyline. This expansion adds a vast amount of content and even changes some of the old stuff that had been in the game for years. It increases the level cap to 85 and gives you the ability to be a worgen or a goblin. It's an easy buy for any fan of the WoW franchise.

Cons: Only con here is that the next expansion is already out and this is still 20$.

Other Thoughts: I got this game as part of a bundle with the Battle chest for 20$ total, but it would be notable to say that it would be 40$ for the whole package without that promotion.

1 out of 5 eggsNot what it used to be

Pros: New underwater world....interesting world changes.

Cons: Ok.. So, I've been playing wow since vanilla when it was Epic.. But unfortunately they have finally killed the game play. They have simplified the game to the point it is no longer a challenge.

It is mainly running the same dungeons over and over..

And the questing is zero challenge.. You can easily go thru the whole pve content without ever dieing once. The major bosses you work up to in pve fighting are basically follow along movies. That you literally could stop fighting and just let the npc's finish them off.

They have removed all choice from your charachter talents. So everyone is basically the same build except small choices. You don't need bullets, arrows anymore.. Must choose only weapon type..

Now getting ready for the kung fu panda expansion to squeeze as much as they can from the asian market.. you only get 1 talent you can choose every 15 levels.

You can't make this game much simpler.. But they will try.

Wow is dead.. And that's a shame

Other Thoughts: Used to be an excellent game. My advice. Try something newer. Take it from someone who has played from the beginning. For me... This quest ends here.


This game is now so easy.. A caveman could do it :).

2 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review for Cataclysm as of 3'24'12

Pros: Blizzard added flying for old world areas (Vanilla WoW continents)
Mages can solo multiple other players since Cata came out- still no changes there, rogues are on a similar power level with their PvP rampant "legendary" weapons.

Blizzard added the random raid finder, which allows you to queue for (only 1) raid with other servers, lowering your time spent waiting.

It's not getting any cheaper?...

Cons: Well, many of the changes planned for Cataclysm were poorly executed.

First off, they added flying- which players had been asking to have for years. (but only if you bought their expansion pack +250 gold per character...)

They revamped old quests... which I don't think anyone asked for. (They knew that most new players quit before level 20... it was obviously a ploy to keep more trial players)

PvP has been the least balanced of all 3 expansions.

Mages have gone unchanged since the game launched, which, for example- means that 1 skilled player could take out two other players while barely trying, sometimes more.

Rogues have overpowered legendaries that only they can use.

The server populations have really turned to poop. If your server isn't populated with immature trolls linking an*l jokes or spewing racial hate, it'll be filled with the douchiest people you can imagine.

The Community Moderators and Developers are indifferent towards the community's conce

Other Thoughts: (Cont.) Often times, they will troll the very people they claim to respect.

In their mission statement: "Every Voice Matters" Every employee is encouraged to speak up, listen, be respectful of other opinions, and embrace criticism as just another avenue for great ideas. -this could not be further from how they treat people.

If you criticize them, they will use obscure rules on their forum to close or delete your thread, or even ban you.

If someone happens to have a similar topic to yours somewhere on the forum, and they don't like yours, they can decide to lock it, and won't even respond to you.

The developers' hubris towards the playerbase, has created a divide, of douchy "elite" players, and people who just casually game (aka most gamers), which has torn apart the community, and caused some of the 2 million lost subscriptions this year (about 15% from a year ago).

If you're looking for a great MMO- try WoW or Rift's free to level 20 trials, before you waste y

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Love it, new graphics redone old territory, thousands of new quests etc.

Cons: Cap only raised to lvl 85, but understandable.

Other Thoughts: OK, for people saying it should stop and there isnt enough new content, well first off, they have redone sooo much in little time, everything is better and WoW shouldnt have ended after WOTLK, still unanswered questions from warcraft 3.

3 out of 5 eggsNot what it used to be.

Pros: Cataclysm offers two new races and revamped old content. Blizzard also changed the guild system, improved the graphics a bit, and altered the talent system.

Cons: Okay here is my 2 cents on WoW. Blizzard did an amazing job with WoW. There is no denying that. However, I personally think that WOTLK should have been the last expansion. Blizzard is just milking the consumer at this point. The state of the game right now is depressing for the following reasons:

Community- Extremely immature. I know this plagues many MMOs but given Blizzards marketing directed to kids, WoW has become a virtual baby sitter for the vast majority of the 12 y/o population. I blame the introduction of the trading card game on this one.

Class balance- Blizzard loves to mess with class balance. Expect to get nerfed/buffed every patch. Trust me...this gets real annoying. I wish they would stop trying to balance classes around PvP.

Content- Revamping old content. They did not put in enough new content. They will be releasing new stuff in patch 4.3 but I think it’s too late. The expansion has already lost its momentum and Blizzard has already lost thousands of subs.

Other Thoughts: WoW is not what it used to be. I started playing WoW when old Nax was released. My experience with the game was memorable and I made many friends at the time. Things have really changed however. Many of my fellow veterans have left and making friends is much more difficult since everthing in this game feels instanced rather than persistant.

Guys just wait for another MMO. Getting started with WoW is pretty pricey (Boxes + 15mo Sub). If your just starting out and you want to level one of the new races or intend to hit lvl cap you need to purchase WoW (BC is now included-lvl caps at 70), WOTLK-lvl caps at 80, and Cata-lvl caps at 85. I'm going to warn you..leveling a new toon sucks. Mix up questing with PvP(now gives exp),dungeons, and powerleveling (make friends with an 85).

My best advice is to skip this game and wait for the Star Wars MMO or GW2. Take care all.
