World of Warcaft: Cataclysm Reviews

Another day, another batch of Cataclysm reviews. And if you're looking for a negative review of the World of Warcraft expansion pack, you won't find it here.

Games Radar gives it a 9/10:
That, however, is a single drop in Cataclysm's massive bucket, and the amount of good here far outweighs the bad. Cataclysm's certainly not perfect, but it's the best World of Warcraft expansion so far and a damn near miraculous dip in the videogame fountain of youth for Blizzard's six-year-old MMO. Unless you absolutely, militantly despise World of Warcraft and all that it stands for, this one's a no-brainer.

Kotaku doesn't score it:
The traditional massively multiplayer role-playing game audience looks for one thing in an expansion pack: More content. With World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, Blizzard goes above and beyond, delivering not just more, but better content. The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King expansion packs may have covered more ground, but Cataclysm's shorter journey is a deeper and more satisfying experience than anything that came before it.

And BeefJack gives it a 9.4/10:
Cataclysm is not just a massive expansion that brings back a lot of the wonder it had six years ago. It's also balanced everything to an unfathomable degree of excellence, to reward both low- and high-level characters with content, as well as making it accessible enough for new player to take the plunge. It's a game-changer, and it's absolutely fantastic.
