Critic Reviews for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

Ambitious but uneven, Shadowlands is an exciting evolution of World of Warcraft.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands hasn't quite wowed me in the way that Legion did, but it's an improvement upon many concepts from Battle for Azeroth. There's a clearer story that seems to have more embedded bones, with a more pronounced set of zones that stand on their own. As always long-term support remains to be seen, but for now, WoW is still one of the best MMOs out there.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands certainly manages to capture the same feelings we’ve had since first started playing the game. The leveling experience overhaul, constant sense of progress with rewards, and new campaign stories make Shadowlands a must-have for any avid player.

‎In World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, the eighth expansion to Blizzard Entertainment's world-acclaimed massively multiplayer online role-playing game, players will venture into the unknown horizon of the Shadowlands, an infinite plane to which the souls of mortals flock to be reborn, serve, fight, or suffer eternal torment. The heroes of Azeroth must forge alliances with the powerful curias that dominate these lands and claim the ultra-earthly powers necessary to unveil sylvanas' purposes.‎

Shadowlands is an appropriate expansion in many ways, but between merits and novelties stand out a masterful audio-visual system and a fun worthy of the golden days. It doesn't revolutionize anything, but it reshapes the progression system with intelligence to rejuvenate an evergreen like World of Warcraft.
