World of Warcraft has been top dog in the MMO space for a good long while. Each expansion brings renewed hope that it will continue to sit atop the heap. How does Mists of Pandaria fare? Find out in our official review then leave us your thoughts in the comments.
In the meantime, we have Mists of Pandaria. Mists was a tough journey in the beginning but became a much more fun experience as I went through the content and worked my way up. For me, Mists is an excellent Worl d of Warcraft expansion. However, in terms of MMOs in general it does not bring the thunder that a WoW expansion used too. If you are a veteran WoW player than Mists has a lot to offer in terms of game play and especially content. If you are a hardened MMO vet looking for something new this is not the game for you any more. Letâ€™s go through the stages and get this final score underway.
So while combat in RuneScape can be very dull when youâ€™re fighting a severely under-powered foe, you get a bit of a rush when facing off with something thatâ€™s a bit tougher than you, a rush youâ€™re not going to get in WoW or most other MMOs. Archaic is the only term that could possibly be used to describe this game. There are a few cool or interesting features, but itâ€™s bogged down by the completely uninvolved and boring mechanics. Combat, as stated, is flat and unimaginitive, but that goes for the rest of the game to. Tree cutting takes hours to get to max, most people use bots to level it up. Mining same thing, click on rock, wait, click on another rock, repeat.
There is a chance of some terrible beasty popping out and trying to kill you when you do most of these gathering actions, to. I actually enjoyed that, added a bit of danger to the entirely mundane and boring grind that is anything in Runescape. In fact, your last re-review gave this game a lower score, so how did it earn a rating of â€œGreat: This game is a solid effort, and meets the expectations of what a high end MMORPG should be. This game is worth your time and money.â€? With combat the constitution of soggy bread and nearly every other mechanic based on turning a mill stone, how does this meet expectations of a high end MMORPG?
