General Comments
The Burning Crusade, it one of the best, if not the best MMORPG available today, it comes as an expansion pack for the highly succsessful World of Warcraft, and carries that success with it.

Personally i think that Blizzard have done a great job in making this game what it is, huge environments and thousands of quests, and still with all this Blizzard update the game monthly with patches, and incremental patches where they may add a new 'raid instance' providing the high-end players with much more to explore.

One bad thing about this constant updating is, it leaves the casual gamer behind and unable to compete with players who dedicate more time to the game, which i think blizzard could combat by maybe changing the way the game works, i.e. instead of making it almost entirely 'In-game Currency orientated'(requires stupid amounts of Gold to be able to compete well) they could lower the costs of things and make it easier for the casual gamer, or something.

Graphically the game isnt amazing, the graphics are somewhat outdated and could possibly need tweaking but if your PC is good enough to run the game on full graphics, with full screen glow effect you won't notice the minor defects of the graphics and will focus more on the flawless gameplay.

A major setback for me personally is the ' Incredible Online Experience!' (ironically) can sometimes really get in the way of things, and as in most Online games the player can encounter people that are less then intelligent and see it fun to harrass people when playing, and on top of that the support from blizzard isn't exactly 'Speedy' and 'effective'.

Overall the gameplay is actually really good, and the game is very inviting, letting you explore 'Outlands' and all the new instances which are much more graphically intense and seemingly more interesting than the original 'World of Warcraft'. Although there are many things that make this game far from perfect, I have to say that I have never come across a perfect game, and I have seen much, much worse games.
