From a purely technological viewpoint, this game is near-perfect --- the graphics, animation, story line, learning curve, virtually everything has been fine-tuned to be an enthusiasts dream. But to achieve any serious success requires a commitment that most average people can not make to a pasttime. Sure, you can advance from lvl1 thru to maybe lvl40, when you get your mount (horse, sabre, etc.), by spending a few hours now and again, playing in your spare time. However, to advance to lvl60 (the current ultimate level) and to achieve the dozens of goals once at that level, will require, at times, that you team up with as many as 39 other players and play a non-stop 'instance' of the game for anywhere from 4 to 8 hours --- with barely time for food or bathroom breaks. If you think that you can be the exception, and handle the game alone or with a few friends to achieve a form of success far below the ultimate Knight-Champion-Killer-of-Onyxia-Revered-by-All level --- Good Luck! You'll find that by the time you're lvl60 you have become so addicted to the game that you MUST continue to invest more and more time --- even if the goals are almost perpetually changing and increasingly unattainable.
