Although I’ve always loved Warcraft (sometimes less so than others), I have to admit that Cataclysm has turned me into a total raving fangirl. And you know what? I don’t think I’m the only one. Negative reviews of the expansion have been few and far between, and most people seem to be enjoying it inordinately.
Yes, it is very much a horizontal expansion, and the trip to endgame is very short on this one. But you know what? It was time for them to do an expansion like that. The game desperately needed new content and new areas to explore in the lower and mid levels. Oh, sure, I’ll level Kit to 85 in the next couple of days. And then I’ll level my paladin to 85 as well. But after that? I am SO looking forward to seeing the new starting areas and revamped lower level content.
I don’t have any problem with being an unashamed Blizzard fangirl. Any company that can put consistently put out content of this calibre, and provide such a huge amount of sheer, blissful fun, deserves respect and loyalty.
