World of Warcraft, better known as WoW, is a multiplayer online role-playing video game (MMORPG) in which you can build your own legend in a world that never stops growing and evolving. You will fight against multiple enemies, conquer the world region after region, discover amazing places, and live epic moments with other players.


Thrall's Horde, aiming to establish a home in Durotar, expanded their forces by extending an invitation to the undead Forsaken, who joined the ranks of orcs, tauren, and trolls. Simultaneously, the Alliance found support from dwarves, gnomes, and the ancient night elves, led by the human kingdom of Stormwind. However, Stormwind's king, Varian Wrynn, mysteriously vanished, leading Highlord Bolvar Fordragon to take on the role of Regent. Unfortunately, Bolvar fell under the insidious mind control of Onyxia, a black dragon in disguise as a human noblewoman. As heroes delved into the mysteries surrounding Onyxia's manipulation, the ancient elemental lord Ragnaros reemerged, posing a grave threat to both the Horde and the Alliance.

Graphics and sound

The game features nice-looking and detailed graphics for an MMO. The environments and biomes are quite varied, and make the whole world pleasant to discover as you progress through this journey. The interfaces are customizable and scale well as the experience becomes more complex. The game features high-quality cinematics that showcase epic moments, compelling storytelling, and stunning visuals. The captivating soundtrack, composed by renowned musicians, enhances the atmosphere, immersing players in the world of Azeroth.

Duration and game modes

World of Warcraft is a massively multiplayer online game, so it is designed to be multiplayer. You can play solo, but you won't be able to overcome dungeons, tough quests, and other features designed to be accomplished by teams.

In terms of duration, taking into account the infinite number of possibilities and the 8 expansions released so far (The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor, Legion, Battle for Azeroth and Shadowlands), we can safely say that World of Warcraft is practically infinite.

What do the reviews say?

© Metacritic

World of Warcraft has a Metacritic score of 93/100.

"Addictive from the moment you begin...It's incredibly friendly to the solo gamer, allowing players not only to gain Levels 1 to 60 without ever grouping with someone else if they prefer, but also to earn the same or more experience playing that way. That means the solo gamer can level nearly as quickly as a group of power gamers playing together." (Detroit Free Press)
