World of Warcraft: Cataclysm review - 93% in PC Gamer

Blizzard's third expansion goes down a treat

World of Warcraft is a huge game, made even more so by the recent release of Cataclysm. The devotees at PC Gamer have plugged countless hours into Cataclysm and come away with a renewed love for the world of warcraft.


The review wastes no time getting into the nitty gritty. It describes the new quests in Cataclysm as "brisk, fun, and over in the blink of an eye", but ones that provide the player with a breadcrumb trailed tour of the new world.

Ultimately, what matters is the entertainment. "In WoW today, entertainment trumps everything", PC Gamer says. "New players will think this is what all MMOs are like" and "old players, once they've recovered from exploring the new, very top tier zones, will be thrilled with the changes".

As well as revamping classic zones, Cataclysm introduces a few new areas to the game. Uldum "is the standout: a comedy interpretation of Egyptian legend that plays out brilliantly" while Deepholm is described as "remarkably fun".

PC Gamer's review concludes by saying that the latest expansion has saved the veteran MMO from decline and reaffirmed its dominance in the PC gaming space, a title worthy of the 93% review score.
