Well, I held out for 2 months and did not buy Cataclysm. But then I did. I still have issues with the game, the same old ones I did in Wrath of Lich King. But this time, I think the good outweights the bad. I started playing through the starter (lvl 80) zones in Cataclysm, Mt. Hyjal and Vah... well, the underwater zone, whatever it's called. I liked them except for the linear quest progression that feels more like I'm reading a story going on an adventure. I made a goblin and leveled to 20, and enjoyed the starting goblin quests. Then I made a blood elf mage and went to the undead area since I knew it had a major overhaul. THIS is where I decided that Cataclysm seriously rocks. I played until I got to lvl 27 and got to Tarren Mill and I have to say, that was probably the funnest(sorry not a real word, I know) 27 levels I have ever been through. Plus the plants vs. zombies-esque mini game with the singing sunflower pet reward was a blast. The mad undead scientist who thought Johnny Awesome was Jenny Awesome was exceptionally gratifying to kill. Overall just a great time. The sheer amount of work that went into this expansion blows my mind. I still have a lot of it to experience since I got both my hunters to 83 only. And if I don't get that flaming turtle pet, I think I will die. YES! I like Cataclysm.
