Summary: Mom gives thumbs up on WoW
Comment: I started playing WoW so I would know what my teenagers were talking about - your Tauren shaman had too little hp for bg? Say what? I have played for (way too) many hours over the past year and seen most of what this game has to offer:

Endless entertainment, very affordably priced at $50 or so to get started and $15/month online fee

Amazing complexity, visual environments that are lush and stimulating, social interaction, sophisticated orchestral musical themes... a highly artistic environment

My favorite aspect: there are so many valuable real-life lessons, skills and strategies that are effortlessly conveyed by WoW. For instance, the Auction House teaches supply/demand, marketing, price points, competition, demographics and more (the kids won't learn that terminology, "just" applicable skills. Teamwork and leadership are taught via group quests and battles. Persistence and delayed gratification are necessary for acquiring rewards in the player's chosen professions. My 13-year-old's spelling, grammer and reading have improved dramatically since he started playing WoW - other players will make fun of, or ignore, the "Tard" - again, these are real life reactions. I could go on and on (oh, wait, I did already).

There are details I don't like - yes, the main focus of the game is killing stuff - cartoon characters and animals fall down dead without blood or gore.

That said, I don't simply allow my kids to play WoW, I actively encourage them to, because it builds tangible computer and communication skills, thinking skills such as planning and strategy, and even emotional skills like patience and forgiveness (your entire group died because the healer lost focus? Yep, that can happen in real life, too.)

WoW is a valuable teaching tool, at a miniscule price. For best results, play it with your kids.

Summary: wow!
Comment: well, world of warcraft is its own addictive, dangerous, manipulative, sick and twisted. . . thing. that aside, this is a better deal than the blizzard website offers for the same product, and definitely cheaper than buying the two games separate. as for the guides that come with it, they're not very helpful to anyone who's been playing for awhile. they mostly just cover the basics.

Summary: WOW Review XX
Comment: Well, game works great except for the World of Warcraft the game CD came damaged with what appears to be a box blade cut on the surface; so I had to borrow a friend's copy of the game to get it installed. Other than that, it is a great game that I would recommend to anyone plus you get a month free with it.
