Drothian writes: Yeah the sound does go about half way though..then comes back for like a nano second at the very end...lol And no...its not all that great really is it..!? It is as you say..boring, not the usual splendour that blizzard produce Fri Aug 22 2008 2:06PM Report

Dayison writes: I love to see all the negative comments. Means less latency for me when WOTLK comes out. It is pretty sad that some QA department didn't take the time to make sure the video was solid. :( Fri Aug 22 2008 5:28PM Report
Maldach writes: Blizzard have become bloated and lazy. Their once-great cinematics are now boring and cliche. Their reign is at an end. What was once a company of innovation is now stuck on the treadmill selling only what worked in the past. Fri Aug 22 2008 6:00PM Report
Serazahr writes: I agree with Maldach and a bunch of other people (credit will be given later) I noticed from myself that where before I used to praise Blizzard, I now talk about it like all those companies that make the same grinder games over and over again... because that is what Blizzard is doing!

JonnyBigBoss writes: Long time follower of WoW, this video is underwhelming. Arthas is an awesome character but showing Illidan for a few seconds was a lot better than this. Sat Aug 23 2008 12:10AM Report
tmr819 writes: I think the video is nicely done. Arthas needs to be portrayed as quiet, brooding, ominous, and powerful. I hope the WoW movie, if it ever gets made, will be done in this style of CGI. That said, however, I can't say I have nay interest whatsoever in purchasing WotLK. I'm pretty much WoW-ed out, these days. :) Sat Aug 23 2008 6:13AM Report

Qrajber writes: Ye ye stunning intro as always as xpected it`s just that WOTLk will be another grindfest and to Branko yes sound goes dead after 2 mins Sat Aug 23 2008 1:12PM Report
neonwire writes: Yep it is indeed a fantastic intro. Shame the game isnt anywhere near as cool but oh well....and yeah the sound is messed up over halfway through Sat Aug 23 2008 2:12PM Report

Alienovrlord writes: Nice video only one thing - isn't this supposed to be about the PLAYERS? Not Metzen and his changable storylines. I'd rather see a cinematic with players, but it won't be the 1st time Blizzard has forgotten about them Sat Aug 23 2008 6:59PM Report

Hydrakana writes: Oh and watch the damn trailer on the offical WoW site, the sound dying is related to mmorpg.com. Those who don't understand the lore will not get this intro. Its deeper than anything they have made thus far. Sun Aug 24 2008 2:26AM Report

Quox writes: Pretty as always. Blizzard should really go into making cgi movies. Like.. I would totally watch if they made a WoW movie, or even a WoW movie series, Depicting all the WoW lore. :D That would be shweet. Sun Aug 24 2008 7:05PM Report
Wizardry writes: Yes a nice video.Blizzard does have a very good studio to work with.Too bad they spend so much time delivering quality movies and don't deliver in game.This movie is a nice touch that fits the modern era,there in game belongs with graphics in the 1990's.
