I can't believe you gave it that. Seriously. Everyone else has given it much higher grades... ...And they must be on crack. I'm one of those WoW players who plays it alot, and has since about a month or two after launch. I even redeemed my BC collector's edition cd-key instead of making a few hundred dollars off of it on Ebay. Crazy, I know. But one thing about WoW, is it has many fanboys and people who do not see it's flaws. At day one of launch and even a few months after it was great, Blizzard also kept a steady stream of content. People however overlooked the fact that the world to explore was slightly small scale compared to other mmo's, the crafting system was and still is a joke, and once you hit 60, if you were in a hardcore raid guild fine, if not, you're left with nothing to do after a few instances. A deeper crafting system, player housing and even player cities would have helped that greatly. I've come to accept however that WoW is not mad for the hardcore player, but the mainstream audience. Hence the 8 million subscribers. But the expansion pack... A game we've been playing for what....Two years and a few months now...A game where we were told we'd get hero classes in a year's time, and sooner than later player housing...And we get the expansion. I admit, I like the expansion. It's a lot of fun. However...No new classes? 49.99 or 39.99 if you're American? I think that's a joke. There is no graphical overhaul, with 8 million subscribers the price point is too high imo, and it didn't even come with WoW standard. Let's look at previews MMOs and what the expansions offer shall we? Star Wars Galaxies expansion packs were for the most part average priced, but Jump to Lightspeed offered almost an entirely new game! And then when Rage of the Wookies came, you could get both expansions and the game for a relatively low price. People can argue they had no subscribers pretty much however so let's look at EQ2. EQ2 - It's probably the third most played MMO save for Guild Wars I imagine. It might just fall under Lineage 2 which has 1 or 2 million subscribers. And before WoW's time, having 600k subscribers is a success, it still is in my opinion. The expansion pack, Kingdom of Sky, was 29.99 and it came with EQ2 itself. That's a a pretty good deal I'd say. EvE - Expansions are free, visual overhaul. Nuff said. So while I like WoW, and I'll maybe even get flamed by the fanboys for this topic, I want to commend you on giving the expansion a good grade. In fact if you were to review WoW itself now, I'd hope that after a year or two of playing it would get a lower grade. But like all other drugs, even if it's bad it sure feels good.
