World of Warcraft + Torchlight Reviews

  • Review of the Burning Crusades

    Driverheaven.net has posted their thoughts of the latest World of Warcraft expansion.

    Surprisingly it seems that even those numbers are not big enough for the team responsible for WoW. As with every MMO an expansion pack was bound to come out and I'm sure that no matter how bad it was people would still buy it like there was no tomorrow. But as Blizzard have shown with The Frozen Throne (the expansion pack for Warcraft III) their expansions are usually just as good as the original product if not better. That leaves us with the question: “Just how good is The Burning Crusade?”

    However, there are some really interesting quest types that you’ll get to take part in from the beginning of the expansion. One of the early quest lines in Hellfire Peninsula, for example, has you going on bombing runs. You’ll be given a computer-controlled griffin and a stack of bombs. Use the bombs and you’ll get a ground target cursor on your mouse – point it somewhere and bomb the targets you’re given. You can repeat these quests all you want, too, though you won’t get experience the second time around. These quests are just really fun and a nice change of pace from the normal kill or gather type quests.

  • Let the Crusade begin!

    Gameworld Network weighs in with their thoughts on World of Warcrafts recently released expansion, The Burning Crusades.

    Earlier this month the gaming world (well, about eight million gamers anyway, according to Blizzard) hollered a resounding "WOW!" as World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade was released after months of anticipation. What would the new areas, classes, and monsters be like? How much would it add to the WoW experience? Would it be worth our while?

    Now those questions can finally be answered.

  • New Burning Crusdae Review

    FiringSquad has posted a new Review of the Burning Crusades today.

    As we mentioned in our TBC preview, the newbie zones are truly excellent. They surpass the two best start options, Elwynn Forest and Tirisfal Glades rather handily, and their follow-ups, Ghostlands and Bloodmyst Isle, are far, far better than original early zones like Barrens, Loch Modan, or Westfall. Quests are more concise, with less mindless running around and more action. There are fewer bottlenecks and no occasions where a player finds himself starved for a key mob or is looking for frustratingly rare drops

  • Delving into the new worlds offered by Blizzard to the eager horde...

    Boomtown.net has posted their review of the latest expansion for World of Warcraft. What do they think of the Burning Crusades? Keep reading to find out.

    The main attraction in The Burning Crusade is without doubt the new continent Outland where most of the festivities will take place. This continent is divided into seven zones. Each of these is very different both in the visual sense and the challenges they bring.

  • The Burning Crusade Final Hands-On: One Week In

    Gamespot wraps up their hands on look at the recently released Burning Crusades expansion for World of Warcraft.

    In the weeks leading up to the release of The Burning Crusade, its impact on the game as a whole was already being felt. Non-player characters from the expansion pack's new Blood Elf and Draenei races started showing up in major cities, players who hadn't yet reached a high-enough level to travel through the Dark Portal were desperately trying to do so, and the chat channels were filled with talk of Horde paladins and Alliance shamans--faction and class combinations that would become possible only when the expansion went live.

  • A Look At The Burning Crusade

    Eurogamer weighs in with their review of the recently released expansion for World of Warcraft.

    The Burning Crusade presents an interesting challenge for a reviewer, however. How do you mark a game which will be played entirely differently by different groups of people - a game whose audience will include both entirely new players, and those who have already devoted months of their lives to World of Warcraft? How do you mark a game whose content will take weeks to explore, and whose quirks and overall impact on the experience will take months to assess?

  • The Burning Crusade Review

    Voodoo Extreme has taken some time to write up their thoughts on this latest expansion for World of Warcraft.

    Yes, the anticipation for this thing is huge and the expectations are even bigger, so some people will wonder if Blizzard is trying to pop out a quick money maker or is actually releasing a high-quality expansion pack to go with its equally high-quality World of Warcraft "classic" release, which has entertained millions of gamers the world over for the last two years. So what is the verdict? Read on and find out (yes, I hate that).

  • First Impressions of The Burning Crusade

    Gamers with Jobs has posted their impressions of the newly released Burning Crusade expansion for World of Warcraft.

    The Dark Portal is the center of Warcraftian lore, and has been abused and penetrated more often than the new girl at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch. For players who have invested themselves in the history of Azeroth since the first Warcraft: Orcs vs. Humans, to stand before the open portal from which the Horde spawned and surged is to feel a sense of grand accomplishment for one’s virtual avatar. When finally, with the The Burning Crusade installed and my account upgraded, the Dark Portal opened for me, I mounted my Kodo and stepped through to a world I’d not seen since my 486DX was a top-of-the-line rig.

  • If it isn't broke, don't fix it

    Hookedgamer.com has posted their review of the newly released expansion for World of Warcraft. Keep reading to see what they think of The Burning Crusade.

    It's a dark and glorious day in the world of Azeroth as the Dark Portal finally opens to the long awaiting player population of World of Warcraft. After years of anticipation, the first expansion to epic MMO goes live.

    Burning Crusade is the long awaited expansion for the 8 million player strong World of Warcraft. The Burning Crusade itself adds a lot of new content to the WoW experience. Encompassing content of all level ranges, you can have a new game experience regardless of your decision to continue to advance your veteran character through the shattered reaches of the Outland or start a new character with either of Burning Crusade's two new races. Everything from new high-end instant dungeon zones to expansion of current trade skills have been included in this all encompassing expansion.
