World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Expansion Pack
This is an awesome expansion the blood elfs are awesome and it added so much to lore of wow. It is free now but just had to stop by and sya awesome is what this expansion is.
will always be the best expansion blizzard has ever done! PERIOD!
Dont buy it
its a good expansion pack but since recent updates you dont need to buy this to play this content you get it automaticly dont waste your 10 dollars
In 2007 this would get a 10 out of 10. Leveling content was fresh and new and the game was proceeding nicely. But now 2 expansions farther, this content is outdated, underused, and now sped through by everyone. Only dungeons that are made for levels 58-68 are used now and the level 70 end game content is unused most of the time. Everyone is in cataclysm now and this is just a $10 blockade to getting to the new content. Outlands is much to dry with minimal player count in it, previously populated zones now ghost towns, and level 70 end game pvp gear collecting dust. Get it for as cheap as you can because it won't be very satisfying untill you get to level 81 after running through ANOTHER outdated expansion, Wrath of the Lich King.
Great WoW Expansion
If you liked the original WoW, you'll like this one even better: Two awesome new races to chose from; even more locations to explore, including an entire new WORLD; better graphics; higher level cap; and flying mounts!
I have become in love with the draenei's THEY ARE MY FRIENDS!.... I would recommend this game to anyone that just wants to game but is just not into the console first person shooter... You have quests and achievements and so much to do that you will never run our of things to do!
All I have to say is... WOW!
All I have to say about this exspansion pack is wow! The first thing you will see when you go through the Dark Portal is an epic battle between demons and the Horde and Alliance. I play the Horde, and as the Horde, the first thing you will do is fly to Thrallmar, and expidition sent out by Thrall himself, and you begin facing the Fel Orcs of the past and the onslaught of the Burning Legion. The first day of this exspansion will leave players with a feeling of epicness. The challenge is pretty good, not impossible though. The controls are excellent due to the fact you can customize just about everything. Interface is great as always. The sound is still good. Character Custimization is the same. The graphics are improved with this exspansion. The length is again great, but with a more epic feel of accomplishment to it. The storyline is what got me the most though. In Hellfire, the first zone, you start off imediately slaying Fel Orcs, and Demons from the Burning Legion, not just going after some boars or some wild animal. Overall, this Exspansion is amazing, and will take your adventure into WoW to the next level of epicness.
Just say no...
I mistakingly bought this expansion along with the original game and played it for a year and a half. I say mistakingly because although the game was fun, it was too addicting. Let me explain: In short, the game comes down to you trying to level up, get good armor, fast mounts, etc., etc. But when you reach max level, there is nothing to do. Yes, you could do player vs. player, but it's not that great. You could do the epic dungeons, but that gets repetitive. But I suppose I should stop whining and answer the biggest question a gamer faces when buying a game: Is it fun? Well, let me break it down for you. Challenge: The game is only challenging depending on the class you chose, and what quests you are doing. But overall, the only challenging part is the dungeons and elite quests, which contain high level enemies which will require you to form a group of good players to kill them. Controls: The controls are very well laid out, easy to use, and I had no problems with them. Interface: The interface was very nicely laid out and easy to use, and there is a customizable HUD. Sound: I give sound a 7/10 only because one of the patches caused my sound to be a bit messed up. That aside, the music is good, but nothing else really stood out for me. Character customization: The customization was decent, but not as fluent as other games. However, it still allows you to create a unique character from most of the other players. Graphics/Animation: Although the graphics don't seem like next-gen quality, they work. By that I mean, they look good, that's all it comes down to. Length: Well, getting from level 1-70 (or 80 with the new expansion) will take a very, very long time. It could take months (as it did for me). It was probably the longest lasting game I have ever played. And that is where I started to realize that maybe I shouldn't be wasting my time with this game. Storyline: If there was a storyline, I sure could not follow it. So I return to my original question: Is it fun? Well, yes, I suppose it is fun. If you consider spending hours of your life sitting in front of a computer playing a game when you could be doing something way more productive fun. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the game, a little too much. And I know that I am pretty much contradicting myself, so I will finish this review with the final verdict. Here it is: Although the game is fun, it will waste your time, money, and inevitably your social life. Do not buy this game.
The World of Warcraft
I'll start with a review of each section I was asked to rate.Challenge [7 out of 10] - Blizzard's Games were never meant to be Challenging in a way. Said by themselves, they create games that are user-friendly, but also challenging for the hardcore players. It's mostly up to the players themselves, but I rated the game an 7 because of the challenging aspects of the PVP and Arena systems. In arena you can choose between 3 game types: 2 versus 2, 3 versus 3, and 5 versus 5. There are 3 arena maps, that get a little repetitive, but are still fun to play. There are many "cookie-cutter" builds and team compositions that are very dominant, but with practice and skill, it is possible to beat any composition. There is a high level of Challenge, near the higher skill-leveled areas, but other than that, the game really offers no "legendary" mode. I also decided to rate the 7 because of how easy it is to hit the maximum level. Blizzard offers you "instances" to do, but you don't have to do them to hit the maximum level, which I don't like personally. You can solo pretty much everything, once in a while there will be a raid or party quest, but those can be skipped, and made up by simple grinding. [7 out of 10].Controls [10 out of 10] - Simple yet advanced controlling. Blizzard's usage of the typical "First Person Shooter" movements was a great move. Often, in PvP environments, moving around can make a huge difference. The keys will feel so nostalgic, you can pick the game up, and feel like you're actually playing an FPS instead. I also love how Blizzard integrated keybindings into the game. Players who take advantage of the simple-to-setup keybindings can really shine, and show their skills off. Controls are so easy, but at the same time "advanced" I couldn't help but give it a [10 out of 10].Interface [9 out of 10] - Blizzard has a simple interface, but at the same time, along with the controls, can be advanced. With the allowance of 3rd-party interface modifications, you can make your interface look sexier, cooler, fancier whatever you want to call it, you can customize your interface to whatever you like. [9 out of 10]Sound [10 out of 10] - From the Cinematic to the Main Screen. The music in World of Warcraft is orchestrated masterpieces. The theme is something you'll come to love, and the slow music of Elwynn Forest will put you in the mood. But if you don't want to listen to the music, as sometimes... the slow music will actually put me to sleep if I'm really tired, you can always turn it off, and put some hardcore music on! Like Britney Spears! Other than the Music, Blizzard does a great job with Skill Sounds, Emotion Sounds, and even Voiceovers. But always my favorite, click on a NPC too much, and they'll get annoyed! [10 out of 10]Character Customization [6 out of 10] - Not too much uniqueness, but allows for some differences. Not many people show their faces in Azeroth though. Too many helmets to care about facial customization (Helmets always look cooler). I would like to see a full-body customization though, for a real Role-Playing Game aspect. [6 out of 10]Graphics and Animation [8 out of 10] - The graphics are a bit out-dated I'll admit that. But what it lacks in graphics, it makes up in Gameplay. But again, with the challenging bit, Blizzard wants a game everybody can play easily. If they amped up the graphics too much, it wouldn't appeal to the "casual" gamer. (An example can be set by Crysis, it was easily avoided by people who weren't the "Hardcore" type to buy a computer that can play Crysis.) The Animation is a bit choppy too, but that little piece of armor that goes through your body isn't that annoying. They still tried to make the game look as beautiful as they could, without going into the extremely expensive PC requirements. [8 out of 10]Length [10 out of 10] - Don't even talk about length to an MMORPG game. It's pretty much a hamster wheel, you
I played World of Warcraft for about a year until I quit. The gameplay is entertaining at first but then by the time you hit the max level you think "Well what's there to do now?". I did a lot of Player vs. Player (PvP) after I hit the max level but that was all that was left to do. You try to become the "best" but its just not possible. If you play it a lot you'd most likely get addicted, not a good thing considering you have to pay *edit* a month to continue playing. When you're not online there's always someone else on that is leveling up and getting better than you, persuading you to play online more. There really is no Storyline behind this game, and I'm not too into games without story lines. The length is extremely long; it will take you at least 6 - 8 months to level your character to the max level which is currently 70. 8 x *edit*(monthly fee) = *edit* bucks to max out your character. It's hard to quit playing once you make friends online and you get more and more involved. The socializing part was way more entertaining to me compared to the whole Outlands/Azeroth thing. The graphics aren't at all that great either.
