The Burning Crusade + World of Warcraft Reviews

  • Impressions of the Crusade

    MMORPG.com has updated their site today with a review of World of Warcraft's latest expansion. See what they think of The Burning Crusade.

    Graphics

    First off, there is no new graphic engine, no revisions to textures to help with loading or lag. No skin upgrades for old and new models, but at least we have chipsets for the new areas. BC gives us 40 new monster models and many more changes/upgrades to old monsters in the new world.

  • Hands-on: The Burning Crusade

    ComputerGames.ro has posted this hands on look at The Burning Crusades today.

    I have always wondered where the beginning was in an MMO game and naturally, where it ended. Of course, you can always say that everything begins with level 1 and a start-up location where you squash a few bugs before heading out, into the wilderness.

  • As the World of Warcraft turns…

    Gaming Nexus weighs in with their thoughts on the Burning Crusade.

    The over-the-top battles are still hard hitting and gutturally satisfying, even from level one. And while BC may be largely aimed at the level 60 - 70 crowd, the introduction of two new races -- Draenei for the Alliance, Blood Elves for the Horde -- can almost restore that brand-new feeling that's perhaps been ebbing away these last couple years.

    Gamepyre weighed in with their thoughts on the most recent expansion for World of Warcraft. Keep reading to see what they think of The Burning Crusade.

    Humor has always been one quality that Blizzard has brought to its games and BC definitely follows suit. You will get a headache if you try to catch all of the pop culture references sprinkled throughout the expansion pack. The geek in me spotted humorous nods to Star Wars, Star Trek, and Ghostbusters; to name just a few. There’s even a character that pokes fun of Pauly Shore.

  • A Look at the Burning Crusade

    Gameplay Monthly has weighed in with their thoughts on the latest expansion for World of Warcraft. Keep reading to see what they think of the Burning Crusades...

    All the zones are richly filled with mobs, quests, outposts, towns and instances, often split up into several level ranges as well, meaning that there's plenty of incentive to go back to the old zones and finish up new available quests and take a shot at that new instance within your level range, which brings us to the next point...

  • The Burning Crusade Reviewed

    WarCry has posted a review of the latest expansion for World of Warcraft. Don't miss out on their thoughts about the Burning Crusade.

    World of Warcraft, in comparison with many of its contemporaries, was never a particularly graphically-intensive title. Blizzard opted to go with a less-demanding engine to make it easier to run on systems that were older or less suited for gaming. It's certainly not an ugly game per se, and the less-advanced graphics mesh extremely well with the 'cartoony' Warcraft art style, but even at launch the graphics weren't exactly cutting-edge.

  • The Burning Crusade seems to do almost everything right

    Game Shark weighed in with their thoughts on the recent World of Warcraft expansion on Friday. Keep reading to see what their thoughts are.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. This is some solid advice that many MMO producers should consider listening too. Too many times has a game been completely changed and the game system completely revamped into something much different, much to the dismay of its fans (see Star Wars Galaxies Combat Upgrade and New Game Enhancements) Blizzard on the other hand, knows that 8 million subscribers can't be wrong.

  • The Burning Crusade Reviewed

    ActionTrip.com has updated their site with a review of the latest expansion to World of Warcraft. Keep reading to see what they think of the Burning Crusades.

    It has been a while since my first impressions article. In the meantime, I have reached level 70, gotten my flying mount, about to finish the Karazhan pre-quest and move into what is commonly known as the end game content grind. Or raiding. Whichever you prefer.

    As I write this, the Arenas aren't about to start for another week or so, so the review will mostly focus on wrapping up the points I've made in the first impressions article regarding the PVE (Player Versus Environment) content.

  • The Burning Crusade is a superb example of exactly what an expansion pack for any game should be.

    GameSpot.com has posted their thoughts on the recently released expansion to World of Warcraft.

    Skilled crafters can make items that have empty sockets for gems, and you'll occasionally be offered them as a reward for completing a quest. For the most part, these items are quite hard to come by, though, since they rarely drop from anything but dungeon bosses and the like. Choosing gems for your socketed items gives you an opportunity to tailor your gear to your character's chosen talent spec and play style, and many classes even have multiple endgame armor sets to choose from now for the same reason.

  • It's been out two weeks...put a fork in it, The Burning Cruasade is done.

    1UP had posted their review.

    "If the original WOW hypothesized that art direction trumps technical prowess, two years later, BC proves it. Weirder and wilder than Azeroth's occasionally drab environs (sorry, but Desolace, Tanaris, and the Badlands were a bore), Outland's architecture, flora, and fauna invoke oohs, ahhs, and OMGs. Walk past the bog giants and fen striders of Zangarmarsh, fly over the porcupine-quill mountains of Blade's Edge, and witness the power of a well-wrought shape and a carefully chosen color palette."
