By Earnest Cavalli:
"With Wrath of the Lich King, it seems Blizzard is taking a very iPod-esque approach to development.
Instead of drastically innovating and introducing new ideas to the MMO field, the company's latest World of Warcraft expansion cribs the best ideas from other games and its own community and simply does them better than anyone else could have.
The result? Wrath's beta feels like an elegant, more intuitive version of the current World of Warcraft universe, filled to the brim with ideas that, once you've experienced them, make going back to the regular game an exercise in frustration."
