CGM Reviews: World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

Mists of Pandaria seems to be a bit of a joke at first glance. Earlier expansions to the World of Warcraft had obvious selling points: an alien world, an unstoppable foe, an apocalyptic event. And for this latest entry: kung fu pandas. The whole premise is a pastiche of Asian stereotypes: crane stance, cherry blossom trees, ancient proverbs, fu manchus, bamboo forests, conical rice hats, bonsai trees, the Great Wall, jade statues, zodiac animals, monks, terracotta warriors, Mongol hordes, “wax on, wax off”; it’s all here. (PC, World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria) 82/100
