Blizzard is known for two main things: taking forever to release a game and releasing some of the most critically acclaimed and successful games in the market. With all the hype that was around and the expectations and longing that Blizzard fans have pent up waiting for the latest expansion to World of Warcraft, does Cataclysm meet or exceed expectations, or does it fall short? Find out all about the latest expansion as Ten Ton Hammer reviews World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.
As to how the exact gameplay of Cataclysm differs from past World of Warcraft expansions, really, not a whole lot. The one big change that many players will see is that the gameplay for the zones is a lot more scripted than in the past. There are more guidelines on what to do than there were before. The endgame of Cataclysm is essentially the same as the end game of WoW, TBC, and WotLK was. Players race to the end of the game and then face a plethora of things they need to do in addition to the level grind to actually be better in game terms. Once level capped you still face rep grinds, profession grinds, and then dungeons, heroics and then finally raids. This means that if you liked all of that before, you will like it again. If you where hoping that Blizzard would change it up a bit this time around, you are out of luck.
