Four years have passed since the aftermath of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, and a great tension now smolders throughout the ravaged world of Azeroth. As the battle-worn races begin to rebuild their shattered kingdoms, new threats, both ancient and ominous, arise to plague the world once again.

World of Warcraft is an online role-playing experience set in the award-winning Warcraft universe. Players assume the roles of Warcraft heroes as they explore, adventure, and quest across a vast world. Being "Massively Multiplayer," World of Warcraft allows thousands of players to interact within the same world. Whether adventuring together or fighting against each other in epic battles, players will form friendships, forge alliances, and compete with enemies for power and glory.
A dedicated live team will create a constant stream of new adventures to undertake, lands to explore, and monsters to vanquish. This content ensures that the game will never be the same from month to month, and will continue to offer new challenges and adventures for years to come.

This game has a monthly online fee.

  • Adventure together with thousands of other players simultaneously.
  • Explore an expansive world with miles of forests, deserts, snow-blown mountains, and other exotic lands.
  • Join the Horde or the Alliance as one of 8 playable races.
  • Select from 9 classes, including holy Paladins, shape-shifting Druids, powerful Warriors and Mages, demon-summoning Warlocks, and more.
  • Encounter many familiar and new Warcraft characters and monsters.
  • Learn the continuing story of Azeroth by completing a wide variety of challenging quests.
  • Journey through an epic world filled with dungeons of different styles and depths.

  • Purchase tickets for travel along a number of air routes flown by creatures such as Gryphons and Wyverns. For global transportation, travel by Boat or Goblin Zeppelin.
  • Once a certain level has been achieved, players can choose to purchase permanent personal mounts, such as Dire Wolves and Horses.

     Too much killing, not enough socialising.

    I have to say, that World of Warcraft is the simplest game ever made. This is something I hate.

    First let's examine the objectives in WoW. You must kill things to gain experience, to gain levels, to fight bigger things, that give you more experience, so you can get into high level areas where the things you kill give you items that allow you to kill things even more effectively.

    The whole game is based on one premice, kill things.

    Kill this to get that. Kill that to get this to kill that.

    I play MMOs for the community, for the sheer scope of brilliance that players can create as human beings. Not so that I can run around looking similar to everyone else, with no specialism in my class, killing boring creatures that respawn continually.

    It is impossible to change the world in WoW, something which makes the game tedious, because in the end, what are you aiming for? Glory? Achievement? Riches? All you can achieve is to have the best gear. That's hardly something you'll remember the rest of your life.

    I played Star Wars Galaxies before WoW, and the game was much more interesting. The people made SWG what it was, and that was because you didn't have to kill things to be a part of it. You had dancers, musicians, crafters, merchants, doctors, etc. Not as secondary professions you can just ignore, but primary classes that were essential to the game. Everything you used or wore was made by another player. Armour, weapons, clothing, houses, furniture; all made by players.

    WoW is a multiplayer, singleplayer game. If you want a singleplayer game you can play for £10 per month and occasionally interact with other players then here it is. If you want a community within the game that makes the game what it is, then I would strongly suggest you look elsewhere.

    While it has indeed set the standard of all MMORPGs, WOW suffers from a chronic lack of one veeeery important aspect of a game: gameplay! In no other MMORPG is the grind so dull or obvious. Guild Wars masks it with excellent combat [at the loss of some other aspects], EQII with distractingly pretty graphics and LOTRO with a more quest-based system. WOW however, is unashamed in it's reliance on the grind in place of real, story-driven gameplay. For this reason, it does not deserve more than 2 stars. If it revolved around questing as well as a bit of the inescapable grind, then it would merit a full 5, but it just plain doesn't.

    I have now played WoW in some time... How ever I must say that very bad things happend to me! I got unsocialished and was building a massive port to my friends! I couldn't control my game play and i will just say this one... You will lose a great part of your life if your buying this game! It's good but will you really wonna be alone and have friends over the internet insteadt of friends who your hanging out with in town? I would not and so i sold the game. The game is like a plauge for your brain so dont let it get you!!!!!

    This game is "good", in the sense that if you have an addictive personality it will take over your life due to the amount of time you will have to put into it to get anywhere. Unless you feel like spending 40-50 hours a week playing though, there is little reward for playing once you hit the endgame. I played this a lot and in the end realised it was just boring unless I spent hours grinding each day, which became tedious and repetitive. My advice would be to stay away if you have a life because it will probably reduce it to "I sit in front of me PC all day killing boars to get rep for x". The only redeeming feature is the cancel subscription button on the site and the fact the disks are breakable.

     DON'T DO IT

    This game is fantastic. However, it's ruining my life. I'm fully aware I'm failing my A-Levels and just can't quit. Everyone i know who plays this no longer goes out with friends or spends time with family, it literally becomes every moment of your life. Please. For your own sake, don't buy this game, i really mean it.
