World Of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King
2 days ago
Excerpt: "Pienellä varauksella täytyi tutustua Lich Kingiin, sillä alussa pelotti, että tuleeko tästä uudesta lisälevystä samanlainen tapaus, kuin The Burning Crusadesta. Myös se hieman pisti miettimään, että pelaavatko kaikki tämän jälkeen Death knight -hahmoina, eikä muita hahmoluokkia enää nähtäisi ollenkaan. Onneksi näin ei ole käynyt, vaan Blizzard sai hyvin mukavan ja tasapainoisen paketin kasaan.
Pros: + Tehtävien tekemiseen on tullut monipuolisuutta, + Death knight on mielenkiintoinen hahmo, + Parempi lisäosa kuin The Burning Crusade
Cons: - Vanhahtava grafiikka, - Toivon mukaan pelattava ei lopu liian nopeasti
Conclusion: Whilst Sonic and the Black Knight does get some things right and, at times, shows some genuine potential for the game to be fun, it sadly suffers from the same problem most 3D Sonics have had: the gimmick is not welcome here. More importantly, it is not as easily accessible as it should be. Parts of the game have been lovingly created, yet even the magnificent presentation ultimately fails to rescue the lazily implemented gameplay.
Conclusion: Despite my issues with the game, Age of Pirates succeeds in being an entertaining game. The ship combat is satisfying, ground combat is quick and to the point, and character development has definitely taken a turn for the better. Graphics and audio are on par with what is to be expected, but its nothing mind blowing, especially when recycled bits of old games keep showing up. Game play and controls are easy to understand and are based on an interface system that works.
Pros: Well developed naval combat. Great ship design. Open ended non-linear play.
Cons: Crashes like there's no tomorrow. Some balancing issues between difficulty and character level.
Excerpt: You've got to hand it to Blizzard; when they make an expansion they go all out. Wrath of the Lich King is simply packed with content that goes beyond the introduction of a new area crammed with quests and things to do. There's the introduction of the hero class, a new profession, and a host of other additions such as achievements, barbershops, an in-game calendar and more.
Summary: Parents need to know that Wrath of the Lich King is an expansion to World of Warcraft , a massively multiplayer online game (MMOG); and that players must own both the original World of Warcraft game and the Burning Crusade expansion to play. Parents need to know that Wrath of the Lich King has dark themes. Players can choose to play the Death Knight, a character raised from the dead into the service of the evil lich king Arthas.
Excerpt: It's hard to conceive what PC gaming would currently be like had Blizzard not released World of Warcraft. Four years, two expansion packs and tens of thousands of man years of consumed free time later, World of Warcraft continues to steamroller over its competition in the sales charts, with a cackling goblin at the controls, no doubt laughing all the way to the bank in Booty Bay.
World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Review (PC)
22 February 2009
Conclusion: It's clear by now that World of Warcraft's remarkable success has put Blizzard in the enviable position of having a development budget that other companies can only dream of. The result is an ever-widening gap between WoW and the competition. WotLK is a shining example of this, with a stunning continent to explore, quests that show real effort and imagination, more accessible raid content, a growing range of PvP options, and greater group flexibility.

Conclusion: Wrap-Up: I still have many hours of exploring before mastering the continent of Northrend and I am looking forward to it. If you are considering trying the game out or returning to the game, I recommend it. These first couple of weeks have been great fun. I have heard a few complaints, but those are very few compared to the times I have heard someone rave about a new feature.
