World Of Warcraft Warlords Of Draenor Review

World Of Warcraft created by Blizzard is the world’s largest and most popular MMORPG ever. The game has truly stood the test of time outlasting many competitors such as EverQuest and Star Wars Galaxies. Throughout the years, the game has had several expansions packs, added new classes races and entire continents for users to explore. Warlords Of Draenor really drew in some of the crowd that had left the game and brought in new users to the ever expanding Warcraft universe.

Warlords Of Draenor picked right up after Mists of Pandaria and your new enemy is Garrosh Hellscream.  Garrosh has escaped his prison with an extremely large monster and he travels back in time to rewrite history to prevent the orcs from becoming corrupted. This leads him to join the Burning Legion and he unites the clans into a collective force known as the Iron Horde and then returns back to Azeroth to start the invasion. Your objective is to play the general of the Alliance or Horde forces in order to force the Iron Horde back.

Warlords Of Draenor ties together moments from The Burning Crusade to make the whole story make perfect sense and give you a sense of awe as you see all the events playing out in front of your eyes.  This is the main area where World Of Warcraft does extremely well but goes very unnoticed. World Of Warcraft has a really strong story filled with tons of lore that makes players feel connected to the game. However, it takes more than just a well-written story to make a game  in the instance of Star Wars The Old Republic the game was so focused on the story that it feels more like a single-player game with an online mode.

Questing in World Of Warcraft truly feels more like a waste than it is productive thanks to the group finder you can sit around in your capital city and run missions all day in order to level your character. However, if you are looking to raise your reputation and explore the rich lore of the game I don’t recommend using the group finder tool as it makes the game feel barren and a waste of time which is the exact opposite of what the game was aiming for. World Of Warcraft is like EverQuest in the regards to lore and story the main difference is that in World Of Warcraft there is a choice to go through quests and story while in EverQuest there is not.

Combat is also another area that is not particularly stellar. The game is extremely old and has a dated engine and thus uses the old tab target wack a mole system that we have all seen before. You could almost say that it was the pioneer in the field as most games tried to emulate World Of Warcraft entirely in hopes of having the same success.

All in all, World Of Warcraft is an extremely well-written game that needs to break the grinding feeling that it has gotten its self into.
