Compared to the previous WoW expansions I believe that Cataclysm is the best yet. This is mainly because whilst changing a huge number of features in the game, such as the general landscape, level flow and race and class combo's it brings back a many things one hasn't seen since the Vanilla days (before any expansions) I.e. harder dungeons, which require crowd control, a refreshed conflict between the horde and alliance, and a more universal feel to the game. The graphics have also been greatly improved with a new water effect, and on top of that, the texture levels in the game and much better than before on items and in the landscape. The two new races added in the expansion (Goblin and Worgen) give a larger sense of diversity in an ever growing community. Both are very fun to play and have very exciting and imaginative starting zones which use the art of phasing very well. However I did enjoy the Worgen experience a little more than the Goblin. Blizzard have out done themselves again but even more so than any previous expansion. Whilst having an 'old school' feel to it which reminds players of the vanilla days, World of Warcraft Cataclysm brings a huge number of new elements to Azeroth which are most welcome and which definitely hot things up. Overall a very solid effort, which is almost perfect. I can only hope that each expansion Blizzard release for WoW will be as good as this one. *********
