World of Warcraft Reviews
The reviews are finally starting to pour in for World of Warcraft. “Metacritic”:http://www.metacritic.com/games/platforms/pc/worldofwarcraft/ is reporting an average of 94% so far. Most notably, “Gamespot”:http://www.gamespot.com/pc/rpg/worldofwarcraft/review.html?q=1&tag=gs_hp_flashtop_bg gave the game a 95%, with the following sentence to sum it up:
This is a stunning achievement that will make you feel privileged to be a game player.
The 95% rating is higher than Half-Life 2, Halo 2, Far Cry, GTA San Andreas and basically every other blockbuster game out this year. It’s the highest rating a PC game has received in the last 2 years at Gamespot, and the second highest rating ever given for a PC game at the site. Second only to Blizzard’s other game, Diablo.
If that isn’t enough to convince you that this game is not to be missed, then I don’t know what would. I was planning on skipping it myself because of a lack of time to devote to the game, but the Gamespot and other reviews mention over and over that the game is great, no matter how much time you can invest. There is even a system in place so that if you don’t play for a few days, you will receive a boost in your experience gains the next time you play. The longer you are “resting”, the longer your experience boost will last, which lets you catch up to the players that were playing during the time you were taking a break.
Plus the fact that it works on Macs or PCs out of the box, means you have no excuses for not playing this one.
