Storyline

Four years have passed since the mortal races stood together against the might of the Burning Legion. The tenuous peace forged in a time of desperation is fading. Arthas, the mad deathknight, has assumed the mantle of the Lich King, becoming nearly invincible in his fortress in Northrend. However, the great will of the Lich King has failed, and the undead legions have splintered. The Forsaken, those creatures that have managed to throw off the control of the undead lord under the guidance of Sylvanas Windrunner, the former high elf, have control of the lands of Lordaeron, under constant attack from the mindless creations of the Arthas. South of Lordaeron, in the land of Azeroth, the humans have reclaimed their stronghold of Stormwind, building it into their new capital city. But the king has mysteriously vanished, and the Defias Brotherhood, a group of thieves and murderers, have gained considerable power. With the Stormwind army away from the capital, the task falls on the shoulder ... Written by DPB

Great game if you can keep your cool.
18 August 2006 | by macnoosSee all my reviews

So, World of Warcraft... is it a great game you can spend days, weeks, months and even years on? The answer lies somewhere in between. I've had some really really great times playing wow and I've had some really really boring moments. The secret to loving WoW is to keep it somewhat at bay, do not let it ruin your life. I admit there were some weeks and even months where I did nothing but play WoW. And because of that I got so sick of it I hated myself when I was playing. WoW is highly addictive and it can consume you. I have friends who have done nothing but play WoW for over a year. 10+ hours of gaming every day of the week. I know for a fact that for lots and lots of people this is what they do. You always want that next thing which is slightly better than the one you've already got. You want to see your character looking all hot and being able to churn out lots of damage or keep the members in your party alive so you can prevail and yell "Victory!".

I've had many great times and met a lot of great people during my time in Azeroth and Kalimdor. I started out as Horde and it'll always be dear to me to see trolls, taurens, undead and fellow orcs. But this game takes its toll. You have to decide on how much time you want to spend on it. Level 1 to 60 is great for casual gamers who play some hours a day a few days of the week. And then when you hit level 60 you can just chill out and do the 5-10 man instances for the best and nicest blue gear possible from them, and have a hell of a good time doing it with good friends. But after you've done all that you have three choices. Option 1: Continue with that character and get him/her in a raiding guild to do some ZG/MC/BWL/AQ/Naxx and outdoor bosses. But this is not for everyone. Here you have to spend about 5 hours on each raid night and often several days of the week. And few people will not see the valid logical reasons for this. There must be a better way to spend your real life time on. Option 2: You continue playing but on another character. Either you want to try out the opposite faction or just another class so you can experience the game from a different point of view. Downside here is that the game won't feel as fresh as before and leveling can become a bit boring as you've done most of the quest before. Option 3: Simple. You logout and cancel your subscription and you quit playing WoW. Here you say to yourself, it was a great game and fun while it lasted. But it's time to move on.

World of Warcraft is a great game if you can manage to control your game time. You meet great people and it's fun to see your character getting stronger and wiser. But after a while (after level 60 sometime) you find yourself at a crossroad. It's up to you which road you want to follow.
