The Lich King Arthas has set in motion events that could lead to the extinction of all life on Azeroth. Only the mightiest heroes can oppose the Lich King's will and end his reign of terror for all time.
Following the end of the cataclysm, Alliance and Horde forces come to blows yet again, and through their war they come across the long lost land of Pandaria, an ancient land shrouded in dense mist, and rich in secrets.
Garrosh Hellscream goes back 35 years in time to change the history of his planet and his people. Brave heroes from Azeroth go through the portal to fix what he has changed and to try to bring balance back to the world.
Four years have passed since the mortal races stood together against the might of the Burning Legion. Peace is fading. The lands of the world of Azeroth have once again become host to a World of Warcraft.

The world of Azeroth faces its greatest foe yet: one of its creators has returned, intent upon wiping all life from the world he helped to build. The many races of Azeroth must unite against the demon army that would destroy them all.
Years after the fall of the Orcish Horde to the human Alliance of Lordaeron, the remaining humans and orcs find themselves facing a common enemy: the demons of the Burning Legion and their armies of undead monsters.

After the Humans discover that the rift which allows the Orcs passage into their world still exists, they must now venture beyond the Dark Portal into Orcish lands to put an end to the threat of yet another invasion.
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. *********
