IMG Previews World of Warcraft
10:26 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted another hands-on preview of Blizzard's upcoming World of Warcraft. Here's a clip from the preview:

at’s what’s most striking about this game; the entire world feels alive, not static. The cities hustle and bustle, the forests are full of ambient life and there are always people milling about. It is amazing how much detail the Blizzard artists put into simple things like an ocean of stars in a cool night sky. Atmosphere is a huge part of WoW. The human lands often feel full of hope and ambition, whereas the undead lands tend to feel completely bereft of such emotions. Speaking of the undead, they too have vast cities and other lands under their sway.
