A Blizzard from Blizzard
15 April 2010
Excerpt: World of Warcraft just celebrated its fourth anniversary with Blizzard giving players cute little polar bear sidekicks. The company also gave its still-growing fanbase of eleven million subscribers a brand new continent to pick over, and boy, what a continent it is. Northrend looks, sounds, and plays better than anything that came before, as Blizzard has seemingly spared no expense in ratcheting up the production values.

Summary: Wrath of the Lich King is a very competent expansion that adds enough new content to keep experienced WoW players busy for months at a time. It even offers a few new things for those growing tired of the tedium that comes with grinding on a daily basis. Really, Wrath of the Lich King is a game that you can enjoy in many ways. Even though it may not over-whelm you with difficulty or astound you with originality, the game is still good and damn addictive.
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.
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.
Excerpt: If you're a fan of World of Warcraft and haven't purchased this latest expansion yet, you should stop reading this and buy it. Suffice it to say it's good. This latest chapter to World of Warcraft brings several major new features. The new continent of Northrend contains ten zones, and has a landmass larger than Outland. The environmental themes throughout most of Northrend zones have a rural and arctic feel.
Summary: Wrath of the Lich King, the second expansion for World of Warcraft, adds the aptly named northern continent of Northrend to the game, along with the first hero class: the Death Knight. Players can now advance to level 80, acquiring some exciting new skills, spells, and talents, as they continue their epic adventures. If you still haven’t played World of Warcraft, then dig yourself out of whatever hole you’ve been hiding in and go download the free trial. Seriously.
Conclusion: Wrath of the Lich King is nothing short of proof that Blizzard still knows how to keep things fresh and still has the thinking power to serve up the creative, and the crazy. The more ‘ordinary’ Northrend surpasses the great works the team poured into the fantastical Outland zones. It’s still early days though with the Lich King but I’m certain that this is a great step in World of Warcraft’s future, don’t miss out on it.
