World Of Warcraft Game Review

1356 words - 5 pages

I have chosen to review the” World of Warcraft” also known as WOW. This game is more than a simple role playing game with dice. It is so much more than a Nintendo or a Sega game. The game consists of choosing a faction, Race, Class, and what to make your character look like. There are Quests, Dungeons, Raids, Professions, Guilds, Battle grounds, and arenas. It is so involved it takes months if not years to reach a point where I have done all I can do. However it keeps expanding through expansion packs, provided by the creators. Here is what I have to say about it.
WOW is a MMORPG which stands for Massive Multi-player On-Line Role Playing Game. The creation of this game has brought some old school fun and ideas into play with a virtual world. You can create a character and run around in a huge virtual world that would take you over an hour to run on foot running from the 2 furthest extremes. You can modify the look of your character to a certain degree so that you can choose your look. Preset Races are given so some research is needed so you can choose the best choice, for you. Books are available so you can find what you might want. Most games of similar content have a fraction of wow has to offer. Wow is quite more in-depth than they are.
There are 2 factions Horde and Alliance. They can be considered good or bad depending on what shade of grey you follow. You have Orcs, Elves, Dwarfs, Humans, Undead, Trolls, Gnomes and so much more even a Minotaur style race they call Tauren. One of your first choices is to choose a side. Followed by the Race and classification. You have Hunters, Warriors, Mages, Warlocks, Priests and so much more. You can change the color of the skin to whether your character has earrings. You have a choice to choose certain type of servers to that of role playing and you comingle with all. You also have a choice of a Player vs. Player (PVP) server which means those of the opposite faction can fight you and kill you. The options that are available make for a better game, depending on what you want. Where as other games do not have such variety.
Once you have your faction, race, and class you are ready to venture forth. You start in starting areas that are low level and are sort of closed off from high level players, but not totally closed off. You have a few spells or abilities, depending on your class. As you gain levels you gain more abilities. You run around in areas and town where you come across quest givers who have a big yellow question mark floating above their heads. You have to do what the quest says and return to them when it is completed. Your rewards can be food, armor and other items deemed as trash. Most games that are like wow give characters levels as game play continues. So there are some similarities.
During early levels you can learn professions to help you become more capable and prosperous in the game. You have Mining, Enchanting, Tailoring, Alchemy and so much more. There are...
