Mid-Core Gamer Review: World of Warcraft

Hello, welcome to my first review as a mid-core gamer. Let me give you a brief overview of what a mid-core gamer is. A mid-core gamer is someone who loves to casually play video games, but doesn’t spend 40 hours a week doing so. A mid-core gamer doesn’t enjoy spending hundreds of dollars a month on games. I am a mid-core gamer, and I am here to write reviews for others like myself. As a mid-core gamer I don’t have a lot of free time to write these articles, nor do I have the time to finish every game I play in only a matter of days. Therefore I will be giving you straight to the point reactions of all games that are reviewed.

First Up: World Of Warcraft
World Of Warcraft

The Good:

WOW as it is commonly referred to is of course created by Blizzard, and Blizzard has never gone wrong. The game is beautifully designed for its time. The sound effects, music and production values are top notch. The game play is simple and easy to learn, but also allows for advanced play for the more experienced MMO’rs. The world is huge and the journeys are epic. Meeting up with guild’s and raiding dungeons with your friends, this has become the new video game past time. I can remember getting the same rush in the past when playing ,Super Mario Bro’s tournaments.

The Bad:

I was expecting more of a Diablo MMO, this was far from it. WOW requires a lot of time to get up to speed. You need to invest atleast 5 hours of straight game time in the beginning to get anything out of it. Mostly point.. click.. wait.. kill.. wait.. kill.. wait.. kill. BORING! There is not to much excitement until you are invited into a guild and start raiding, by then you have invested 20+ hours.


This game is by far not for the mid-core gamer, you need to devote a monthly fee of $14.99($179.88 a year), and many hours of free time. With $179.88 a year you could buy 4 console games or 4 PC games. I would not recommend this,over a fun single player game.

Game Length: Infinite
Relationship Status: Plan to break up
Health Risk: High
Final Verdict: 1 out of 10
