2.0 out of 5 stars Feels Rushed and Unfinished, September 28, 2012
I've been an avid WoW player since October of 2006; I was there playing the classic game, played through the first three expansions, and have seen WoW's ups and downs.

As far as expansions go, Mists of Pandaria is definitely one of the better ones from a questing, leveling and PvE perspective. They listened to the player community (in comparison to, say, Cataclysm) and made some pretty sweeping changes. Props for that.

As far as actual gameplay goes, however, this is maybe one of the most uninteresting and "grind everything out" expansions there's been to date. PvE (Player vs Environment) content is gated (or prohibited, rather) by long, unnecessary grinds with faction reputations.

In addition, Blizzard has absolutely - to the utmost degree - ignored the PvP (Player vs Player) aspect of this game in Mists of Pandaria. You would have thought that with four previous iterations of the game, that Blizzard would've tuned in on their PvP community, but sadly, that's not so.

PvP is largely unenjoyable, and is no longer a game of skill, but of choosing the right class/race (in-game options) and swarming around another player, praying that you land a kill before you yourself are killed; it's really quite disappointing.

Final thoughts (tin-foil hat theory):
It feels like this game was rushed to production to compete with similar games, namely Guild Wars 2, which leaves the game feeling largely unfinished and "sandbox"-ish. There are so many glaring issues that should've been sorted out during the beta (which weren't), that currently affect live gameplay, that it feels like subscribers are currently paying for beta.

In closing, avoid this game like the plague until the in-game issues get fixed. Wait until more positive, objective reviews crop up, then think about picking it up. As it stands, it's not worth finding yourself $40.00 poorer over.
