Ace Gamez: " It's difficult to introduce Wrath of the Lich King when so many World of Warcraft players will already be familiar with its content. The excessive amount of information that has poured out of the Beta has allowed websites to extensively cover most of what the new expansion has to offer, and yet for someone who hasn't played the Beta, Blizzard's introduction into this second expansion is nothing short of cinematic excellence. The movie quality FMV introduction sets the scene for what is to come, presented as a prologue story rather than the mishmash of random characters dashing about mindlessly, as was the case with WoW and The Burning Crusade. This time around, Blizzard want to present you with a story, a reason for exploring the vast, new, icy continent of Northrend, and nowhere is that story so magnificently paced as with the starting area for the new Death Knight Heroic class.
This, the first new class in WoW since its release, is the most significant event to occur in the game for a long time. While there has never been a side to the two playable factions that anyone could claim to be truly evil (the Horde don't count because they are no more morally corrupt than the Alliance), the Death Knight begins his journey as an instrument of the Lich King, WoW's brand new bad guy and leader of the undead armies that are at the centre of this new expansion."
