The Burning Crusade Reviewed
8:49 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld's Game Room has posted a review of The Burning Crusade, the recently released first expansion for Blizzard's successful World of Warcraft. Crusade introduces a higher level cap, a new continent to explore, and a hoard of new content. The Game Room gave the game a score of 4.5 mice out of a possible 5.

From the review:

Another new aspect to the game is something that should ring familiar with fans of another, older Blizzard game: Diablo II. The concept is “socketed” items—weapons and other objects whose attributes can be enhanced by placing a gem or other precious item in an available socket. Placing items in sockets may enhance the user’s health, for example, or improve a magic user’s intellect to make spells more efficient; they can also improve the attack power of some weapons.

Outland is an entirely new continent you can explore, provided you have a high enough level character. (Don’t even think about it unless you’re into your upper 50s.) This continent, actually a fragment of the orc’s homeworld accessible through a dimensional portal, provides experienced users with a playground of their own. It’s rife with new dungeons, player vs. player (PVP) arenas and quests to participate in. It’s also the land of Wyverns—flying mounts that those with enough experience (and enough gold) can take and fly wherever they wish. You can’t, for example, drop bombs from your Wyvern, but it makes for quite a dramatic entrance, and it’s a heck of a status symbol.
