Authors Note: While this is a review of Cataclysm, I’m writing it from the perspective of somebody who has a pretty good idea of how WoW works already. What I’m trying to say is that this isn’t the most MMO or WoW noob friendly review. Actually what I’m REALLY trying to say is: Sorry Zenestex.
So readers of Faceplant, some of you probably remember back when World of Warcraft: Cataclysm came out I posted an impressions article. Well actually, who am I kidding, most of you probably don’t. (That article is here!) I wrote that to give an impression while it was all still fresh, but I never considered it to be a true review. MMO’s are that breed of game that are insanely difficult to review. Experiencing all the content is almost impossible. Patches come in all the time, adding new stuff, making some things better, totally breaking others, a review is only a snapshot in time of an MMO. However, as the first major patch of the post Cata WoW approaches (patch 4.1, for the record) I want to give Cataclysm an actual review. As somebody who has played the game since back in the vanilla WoW days it’s somewhat amazing to see where the game is now compared to where it was. So let’s nerd out hardcore and see what the results were of Deathwing obliterating a good chunk of Azeroth.
