Review: WoW: The Burning Crusade

Staff Writer Hasani Davis has leveled all the way through Blizzard's massive money maker World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade. Check out his review of the expansion that sold more copies in one day than any other video game title in history. Here are some quotes from the Review: Here is a sample of what Hasani had to say:

  • To me it is a chance for Blizzard to start the whole game over again and take it in a new direction.
  • Everything is the same quality and art with no real advancement.
  • To put it simply this is the most fun game you can pick up on the market.
  • It is nice that you can level two characters from 60-70 and actually not do the same quest.

Game of the week

This week's Game of the Week is EVE Online.

With the upcoming feature of EvE Voice being added to the game next week, we thought players who are unfamiliar with the sci-fi space game should take a look at what EvE has to offer. Players can join EvE as the pilot of a ship and join the inter-galactic world of traders, smugglers, miners, and commanders. With an open world environment and more features on the horizon CCP continues to support the player base of EvE with many new options.
