5.0 out of 5 stars Collectors Edition rules. October 13, 2004
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Until somebody writes the official specs for the Amazon ad, here's what they have on the WoW website that comes with the collectors edition.

# The full game on both CD-ROM and DVD-ROM

# 1-month subscription to World of Warcraft

# The Art of World of Warcraft, 200+ page hardcover art book

# World of Warcraft Behind-the-Scenes DVD

# Exclusive in-game pet

# Official soundtrack

# Cloth map charting the continents of Kalimdor, Azeroth, Khaz Modan, and Lordaeron

# Signed Collector's Edition game manual

# 10-Day Free Guest Pass - invite one of your friends to join the epic quest

The list is amazing all the extra stuff you get. A 200 page hard cover book, and the sound track easily are worth the extra $30. But they go on with 2 versions of the game in both CD's and DVDs. Plus, the ability to give a friend a trial version and the DVD of behind the scenes. If they are still available, I recommend buying this version over the regular if you really love the Warcraft series. It may be a risk to wait and see when the actual release date is, but they are nearing Open Beta, and my only guess is before Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a great MMORPG, a great RPG. Period. November 21, 2004
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First: I have never played a MMORPG before this time. I'm not some kid with a gaming habit. I'm 27, fairly busy, and not about to spend money on a game I won't enjoy.

Up until this time the most incredible game I have ever played was The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. It was a perfect role-playing experience for someone raised on classic D&D, and the only drawback I ever found was that it was quite the lonely game. Months ago some friends of mine started talking about World of Warcraft. I was not even familiar with Blizzard or the Warcraft strategy games, so took all the hype with a grain of salt. Out of curiosity, though, I joined the Open Beta. And wow, what a couple of weeks that was.

The Warcraft world is richly diverse and deep in beauty. The scenery is gorgeous and the ambient sounds perfect, with some of the most beautiful music fading in and out as you explore. During the beta I played as human, undead, orc and night elf, and each race comes with its own history and its own future. Appearance is customizable enough that you don't "see yourself" walking around all that much, and the classes are all have strengths and weaknesses. Had great fun running down and slashing enemies with my undead warrior, enjoyed striking them with lightning from a distance with my orc shaman, smote the little beasties with my human priest and bound them with roots with my night elf druid. During that time I also learned how to make bandages and apply first-aid, fish, cook, and use herbs. It is no problem at all to create a character you will enjoy role-playing, and no, there is never another character out there just like yourself.

Of course, all that isn't taking in the social aspects of the game, which truly bring it up above and beyond the Morrowind experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Closed Beta tester's review November 5, 2004
By Bayne
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a 1 year+ veteran of Star wars galaxies and 2 year player of EQ1. Like many I am a VERY disappointed SOE customer who has been eaglerly awaiting some sort of shift in the MMORPG market, and it's here.

I was recently accepted to WoW's "Final Stress Test/Open Beta" and have been playing it hardcore style for 3 days now. This game is without a doubt the best overal MMORPG to date. Blizzard has once again upheld it's flawless reputation. Any of you RPG/RTS fans that have played Diablo/Warcraft/Starcraft will know what I mean. This game (even in beta) is VERY polished. Many gamers have dubbed WoW as the possible holy grail for the online genre of games. While some will definitely find fault with its "cartoonish" graphics, and comparitively fast leveling times, NO ONE can deny the fact that this game is a GIANT in the FUN category. This is due mostly to the staggering amount of enjoyable quests, an incredible looking landscape, and a fantastic user interface.

For those looking for an answer as to which game "EQ2 or WoW" is better...I will give both sides a try, but drawing on my years of experience with Sony Online, I would say that EQ2 players can expect absolutely astounding graphics, several time-sink methods, bugs, and bad customer service. This seems to be the SOE norm.

As for me....I'm putting down my lightsaber and picking up a Battle-Axe to battle "The Horde". See you in Azeroth!

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having already penned my thoughts on WoW itself this is exclusively on the CE additions since I own it. Rated how fun the game is as 5 stars but the CE additions warrant 3 stars. The CE contains (as listed above):

The full game on both CD-ROM and DVD-ROM

-- Somewhat useful. If one breaks you have a back-up.

One-month subscription to World of Warcraft

-- Nice addition to have. I would have put a 3 month subscription in it soley based upon the initial price. Mainly considering anyone purchasing the CE is going to be a long-term player so give them more perks.

The Art of World of Warcraft, 200+ page hardcover art book

-- This was a really nice little book. If you are interested in the Warcraft Universe or just have a passing interest in artwork (As i do) then it's neat to look through.

World of Warcraft behind-the-scenes DVD

-- This has a lot of content and has so much material it's almost as full and rich as the behind-the-scenes DVD that comes with a Lord of the Rings Special Edition DVD.

Exclusive in-game pet

-- Meh. Mixed thoughts. There are much cooler pets you can get ingame. The pet you get gives you only three choices. Either a Panda Cub (has a severe case of narcolepsy and falls asleep everywhere), a Mini-Diablo (A mini-me Diablo that occasionally breathes fire), and a Zergling (from the Starcraft games..occasionally it clicks its claws). I would have rather had more pets to choose from.

Official soundtrack

-- Soundtrack is well done and decent atmosphere music.

Cloth map charting the continents of Kalimdor, Azeroth, Khaz Modan, and Lor daeron

-- Whoopie doo. It's very very very small. I have washcloths bigger than this thing.

I would have given it a 5/5 but there was no soundtrack disc included. No worries. I can get it on iTunes anyway. Great product

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game and Great Deal
I love the quality Blizzard puts into the CE's that they put out, they are way better than other companies that give you cheap plastic from the left over bin in a Chinese factory.
