PC Gamer: At midnight tonight, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm finally launches. Thanks to a staggered deployment of new features and content, about half of what Cataclysm offers to MMO players old and new is already in the game. That includes re-worked Azeroth, new combat mechanics, improved dungeons and some slightly improved graphics technology.
And it’s good. Really, really good. The World of Warcraft of today is streets ahead of the World of Warcraft that launched six years ago. And the new levelling content that’s been added finally brings the opening stages of the game to the same quality and entertainment levels that veteran players will have seen with the previous two expansion packs.
