4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing but........., 2 Mar. 2005
This review is from: World of Warcraft (Mac/PC) (Video Game)
This is my first MMORPG that i've ever played...I enjoyed Warcraft 3 and must admit that i was aprehensive about playing this.....but i was proven wrong!
This game is, in a word, amazing. I have played Morrowind but quickly got bored - with all the tedious touches (fatigue etc) which some may find "realistic" but i found to be a waste of time...
This game suffers from none of these little niggles. It is very easy to pick up and play - finding quests and knowing where to go to complete them is done so in a very streamlined way so u dont spend ages running around trying to find out where to go...again making for an enjoyable gaming experience.
The graphics are beautifull. Everything is smooth and is rarely repetitive...and the sound is nice and crisp. Addiction is a problem! This game has one of the rare ingredients that made old games like Tie fighter ledgendry - a must have "gotta have more go goddamit" feel...and u feel rewarded for the time you put in.
People complain about a monthly fee...well it depends on how you view that. Unlike many games, you do get what you pay for with this game, so in my opinion (setting aside the issue of "is it right to have to may a monthly supplement") the money is well spent. I would rather spend money playing a game i know i like than to pay less for a game i do not like.
I do have 2 niggles with the game, and hence why i gave it 4 stars, is the social aspect of the game - many quests that offer the greatest rewards must be done by a large group of people - it is not possible to do them without, which some people may be put off by. But teaming up with characters that are helpful makes the good experience of the game soar and is very enjoyable. Forming groups is easy (as is leaving them!) and works very well and should not be viewed as a drawback to this game.
The other issue is that of time! This game will take up a lot of your time...believe me...no game has had me as hooked as this game in my entire life...it is possible to spend over 6 hours playing and notbe bored at all, such is the appeal of the game.
My advice to those considering this as their next gaming purchase is to buy it - the first month is free and every pre-conceived worry you may have with online only RPS's (long loading times, lag etc) will be quickly swept aside when you start playing. It is one of the best games i have played and i know that i will be playing this for some time to come!
