    Interesting. Fun. Boring. Exciting. Frustrating. Fantastic. Bad. In other words... WoW

    This was the expansion that was supposed to redefine WoW. And, it did...for the worse.

    Rated on March 04, 2012 by jason4774

    All we talked about during WoTLK, was how great Cata was going to be. New dungeons, old ones reinvented, no early hand me out epics, and hard raids again! It was going to be something between Vanill...

    A lot of people hate this expansion but I loved it.

    Rated on March 19, 2012 by kbaily

    I think WoW players are too hateful. There are some who wish the game had never had done any updates and still had a tedious grind system, no way to find people to run dungeons with, the crappy honor...

    An expansion that's been catered to be casual friendly; fun nontheless.

    Cataclysm's pretty good for an expansion. The dungeons and raids, from the beginning to later patches are all streamlined to be quite easy to navigate, so you won't get lost (a la vanilla WoW). Th...

    This expansion almost stands up to the others.

    Rated on May 16, 2012 by Chickat14

    Cataclysm is a good solid expansion for World of Warcraft. I personally think its the worst expansion to date, but its still a very good game. The only complaint I would have is that the game lacks co...

    Finally, return to the way it was meant to be played

    Rated on December 07, 2010 by jaxeran

    31 point talent trees. PVP that isn't over in 5s, PVE that requires crowd control and timing, cities that aren't freebee passes to carebears, welcome back WoW! So I'm putting my Shadowmourne in it's g...

    Disclaimer: this is not really a review.. there are plenty of reviews out there. I simply try to paint the picture of what kind of gamer I am, and what appeals to me (or what doesn't appeal).. that wa...

    WoW's best years was Burning Crusade, and those are long over.

    Rated on March 24, 2011 by IxX3xil3d0n3XxI

    I was astounded. I did not expect Cataclysm to be this good. Blizzard has took my expectations and surpassed them. Updated everything. Graphics, professions, classes, dungeons, FUN quests, its unreal....
