World Of Warcraft: Mists Of Pandaria (PC) - Review
20 October 2012
Excerpt: A review for the noobs! I have a confession. I am not much of an MMORPG player. I’ve dabbled in World Of Warcraft for the past two years, learned the ropes, found some pretty neat gear and defeated some dungeons here and there but I’ve just never been able to master the intricate lingo and gameplay...
Excerpt: Hardcore raiders have already hit level 90, and World of Warcraft virgins aren’t likely to start now. But for those who’ve played Blizzard Entertainment’s genre-defining MMO at some point, you might be wondering if the latest expansion, Mists of Pandaria , is worth your time and subscription fee.
Pros: New zone and class offer plenty to do, This is the most player-friendly WOW ever, Pet battles are surprisingly addictive
Cons: Playable Pandaren are a little underwhelming, Some game mechanics are starting to show their age, Novel lore may be hit or miss
Excerpt: Ok here it is: my unabashed straight up comparison of World of Warcraft and EverQuest 2 and how they stack up with each other. While I try and maintain an impartial view while playing games for review, I know that I can not help but insert some personal preference into the reviews.
Conclusion: I’ll confess, I have only barely scratched the surface of the PvP so far in Mists of Pandaria, but from what I have played, the two new maps play in a refreshingly different style and pace to anything from past expansions. So after all this, it’s time to mention the negatives.
Summary: It's the latest expansion to one of the biggest games in the world, World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria. Formerly recovered addict Matt puts a +4 belt around his arm for one more trip into Azeroth.
Pros: Some exceptional art design. Simplified gameplay will appeal to new players. Surprisingly bug free for an MMO launch. Notable reduction in grind. Gameplay is still addictive and engaging. Nice to see the return of some classic vanilla dungeons.
Cons: Game definitely does feel child-friendly by comparison to former outings. Engine is definitely showing its age, especially by comparison to more contemporary titles. Playerbase has ossified into elitist misanthropes.
