Great for new players or returning players wanting to start a new account. Best to shop around though as I found this 2 days after I received it in Tesco for half the price.

It does come with 30 days free, but I'd recommend taking advantage of the free trial of the game available on their website that allows you to play for free up to level 20 before entering your serial number that you receive with this.

After reading the other reviews on here I felt that I needed to contribute to them as it seems the other reviews tend to be on the negative side.
That said I'm not here to ignore any negative parts but to explain why WOW is such a good game and why it still stands the test of time.

Firstly the game is huge with so many different areas to explore challenges to face and people to meet this isn't the type of game that can be fully completed on a lazy Sunday afternoon. It takes time skill and a lot of patience but if you're willing to put in the work the end result is worth it.

As I write this Blizzard have already announced the next expansion and have said they still have more in the pipeline so you know you have a long time of playing ahead of you should you wish.

As for the game it self as said before you get to choose which faction you want to play as bet it Horde or Alliance. Which is good or bad is purely your own choice I favor the Horde but don't believe them to be Evil or your typical bad guys in all but looks.
The story line is slightly different depending on the choice made but later on the majority of quests and story line follow the same path as you will be doing some of the same quests with the neutral factions scattered across Azeroth.

You then choose your class from the Warrior, Druid, Mage, Monk Death knight etc etc each one having a completely different style of play. Some roles are best for Tanking (Taking damage and giving as good as you get) to the Healers (who help protect Tanks and other members of groups from an untimely demise).

The general idea is to complete quest chains that give you more of the story and background on the world of Azeroth and its inhabitants, as you progress so will the level of your character starting at level 1 and working your way to the current cap of 90, the next expansion level cap will be 100.

This can be done a number of ways by following the quest chains offered to you or by using the dungeons in game and leveling up there through to taking no quests and leveling up by just killing the various monsters found all over the place or by completing your professions. One guy leveled to 90 with out killing a single thing and solely leveled by mining ores around the world which is no small feat.

You can play the game at whatever pace you choose be it all day sessions to a few hours here and there it is totally up to you.

As you progress more areas become available for you to explore and quest in adding new items of Armor, Weapons, Mounts etc to collect.

When you reach the higher levels a lot of End game content becomes available to you, Heroic Versions of Dungeons as well as Huge 10-40 man Raids that will really test your skills to the limits and give Epic Items to the best of fighters from Trinkets to improve stats to Legendary Weapons and Mounts that can be so rare very few players get to own them.

I have been playing this game for too many years to mention and the value for money has never been matched by another game.

I have played the likes of Guild Wars 2, Everquest, Tera, Star Wars etc etc but these have been nothing compared to the might of WOW.
Guild Wars had such great ideas let down but a severe lack of end game content and boring as hell quests and yes I did get to Max Level and do as much as possible until in the end I just couldn't bring myself to log on ever again. Add to this that the amount of hacks and account theft was utterly ridiculous Mine was hacked 2 times despite password changes etc Guild Wars really let people down with the safety of their service.
Star Wars if it was called anything else would not have sold at all. I bought this with high hopes that were soon dashed as I explored the ever tedious nature of the Star Wars Universe and yes I am a massive Star Wars fan but can admit a turd of a game when I play it.
People have complained about the recent expansion but the Pandaren Race was involved in the Original Warcraft Strategy games so people complaining are just idiots really. Saying they are to cute and cuddly and childish has no real relevance the game play mechanics are solid admittedly leveling from 85-90 takes a long time and can be a bit of a chore but with the lush surroundings and new areas to explore it doesn't feel to bad in the end.

Blizzard are always looking to add new content adding new zones, Raids and story lines to the game just a while ago a whole new story unfolded with the end Raid Siege Of Ogrimmar and whole new areas to explore in Pandaria.

Now Blizzard have released this box set with the original Game and the last 3 expansions inc Cataclysm all for a stupidly low price all you need is Mists Of Pandaria and boom there goes the rest of your life lol.

AS for the person having trouble installing the game and giving it 1 star It must be something you are doing Iv never had any issues installing the game and have never inserted any discs into my pc its all been downloaded directly from the Battlenet client and yes it can take a while depending on your connection. I'm with Virgin 60 Meg took 90 mins to install.

So if you want a game that's easy to pick up and can take a long time to master buy WOW now.

See for yourself why this is the most successful MMORPG of all time and why the competition can't keep up (and ultimately end up free to play to try and attract any sort of player base).
I will happily pay a monthly sub for a good quality game with excellent customer support and plenty to see and do.
And if you do decide to give it a go look me up in game: Edkrusha on the EU Karazhan server. See you on the battle fields!!!

A great starter kit for those who've never played before and want to try it out. Highly recommended if you've never played an MMO before as its easy to pick up.

Really good value.

For those wondering, this includes Classic WoW, Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King and Cataclysm expansions. The only expansions not included are Mists of Pandaria and the upcoming Warlords of Draenor.

If you've come across this product and never played WoW, nothing more can be said than give it a try. honestly it's next to no money, if you're an avid gamer and you find a few people to enjoy this game with you can get an immense amount of satisfaction and fun playing World of Warcraft.

Box includes 2 disks and includes all games up to Cataclysm so you'll need to buy Pandaria and the forthcoming Draenor games only. Comes also with 30 days game play subscription free and 2 Guest passes - since Draenor has been released, Pandora is now included. Bargain!

I have way too much to say about WoW, too much for here. All I can say is that it's still definitely worth it. This box comes with all the expansions except warlords of draenor, and honestly thats not too bad! It's definitely still a very good game, though not the WoW of 2008-2010, which was "the golden age" pretty much, its still one of the most popular MMORPGs out there and I very much recommend picking it up!

I have been a player of this game for around 6 years, I've been through the ups and downs of this game. I think parents should be made more aware of the games contents before considering a purchase though as the game itself is kid friendly, its the other players who can say explicit stuff. Most of the people who play this game are around 16+ and you can only imagine the things that are said in general that anyone can read. You start off with choosing a faction, either Alliance (Good Guys), or the Horde (Bad Guys), you then get a choice of 6 different races to play ranging from humans and orce, to goblins and pandas. Once choosing a race you then choose what class it will be, from warrior, shaman, priest, warlock, mage etc. Change the appearance, and choose a name and your off.

You start at level 1 in an area suited to your chosen race and your adventure begins here, you start fighting your way through mobs, exploring areas, doing quests to gain experience points, get enough of these and you'll level up. keep doing this over the massive area named Azeroth and eventually you'll be level 90. Don't be fooled though this will take some time, weeks, or even months depending on the amount of time you play. From quests, to dungeons, from upgrading your gear to epic raids, the game can be a time filler or an obsession.

I no longer play this game but I did meet a lot of people both good and bad and learnt a lot in life because of it. So before you buy you must ask yourself if you have the time to play a game such as this and how you will play it. Play this game around your life not the other way around.

Warcraft is available for free download and play up to level 20, however certain elements are not available without purchase and to enhance your experience of the game, this battlechest is cheaper than the digital version of WoW available from Blizzard and I believe worth it when evaluating WoW. It grants access to the Auction House, guild membership and the ability to chat and whisper and enables unfettered level and profession progression. Even if you decide not to continue with the WoW subscription, I think it gives a better experience of the game, compared to the free trial version.

Worth the price for anyone thinking of getting into World of Warcraft, doesn't come with the latest expansion "Warlords of Draenor". If you a fan of MMO games this is definitely worth checking out just as long as you can stand the now 10 year old graphics.
