  • The main issue I have with gameplay is that Blizzard is constantly tweaking and balancing between pve (player vs environment) and pvp (player vs player)
  • They will do everything to try to get you off the phone, even if it means not even solving the problem you came to them with
  • However, i think it deals greatly on the agent answering the phone because I have had positive experiences as well, minus the insane wait times
  • You have to buy all three expansions to experience end game content, level up 80 levels, and deal with poor customer service when you need it
  • If you are not a patient person and are seeking instant gratification from a game I would not recommend this game to you

      This is a review for World of Warcraft, a popular online MMORPG (Massively multiplayer online role playing game). I have played World of Warcraft (WoW for short) for about 5 years now. I must say that there are many pros and cons to this game which I will explain.

      First of all, installing all of the software takes forever. It is a massive game in which the entire world is interconnected. Be patient during installation, grab a drink browse the web do something else…it is not fun watching the loading bar. You will be prompted to insert disks though, you must swap around about 4 discs per expansion. Blizzard, the company who created WoW, has released 3 expansions with one soon to be released. The downfall to this is that you have to install all three. The original (dubbed vanilla wow) is a 5 disc set, the next expansion, the burning crusade, is a 4 disc set, and the current expansion, Wrath of


      the Lich king, is a dvd. Have fun because after installation comes patching…you will have to download about 5 gigs worth of sequential patches to get caught up to date.

      After installation comes gameplay. The gameplay in WoW is fantastic. You can interact with other players in real time, play the game however you want, and are only restricted by your classes abilities. You will also have the option to choose between two waring factions, the Horde and the Alliance. Personally, I play horde. Alliance at first started with a large player base of younger audiences and many players migrated toward horde who wanted more mature friendships. Nowadays though, there are many respectable guilds on both horde and alliance for any age player. The classes you can play as include mages, hunters, paladins, shamans, warriors, warlocks, rogues, druid, priest, and with the release of WotLK Death Knights. You can also choose between several races depending on which faction you chose which include tauren,


      • orcs, undead, trolls, dwarves, humans, gnomes, night elf, and with the release of WotLK draenei and blood elves. The main issue I have with gameplay is that Blizzard is constantly tweaking and balancing between pve (player vs environment) and pvp (player vs player). This causes severe imbalance when you reach end game content at level 80 and can be very frustrating. Be prepared to cry when you are constantly getting facerolled by pve geared death knights in arena combat.

        Lastly, I must comment on blizzard as a whole. Customer service is extremely poor. I have waited for the next available agent for 2 hours when my account got hacked. They will do everything to try to get you off the phone, even if it means not even solving the problem you came to them with. However, i think it deals greatly on the agent answering the phone because I have had positive experiences as well, minus the insane wait times.

        In conclusion, World of

        Warcraft is a great game to play, however it can be very bothersome and pricey for many. You have to buy all three expansions to experience end game content, level up 80 levels, and deal with poor customer service when you need it. Endgame content however is extremely pleasing, but imbalances may cause frustration. If you are not a patient person and are seeking instant gratification from a game I would not recommend this game to you. However if you like to take your time, learn a new game and experience a whole new world outside of your own, this game is for you.

        I give this game an 7/10 because it lacks endgame balance, you will receive poor customer service from time to time, and it is rather pricey fetching about 80 dollar for the full expansion as well as a monthly fee of $14.99. However, for the most part end game content can be extremely fulfilling and can provide hundreds of hours of entertainment.
