Critic Reviews for World of Warcraft: Dragonflight
Dragonflight feels like one of the best things to happen for World of Warcraft in sometime. Its reworks of base systems are fun and enjoyable, but its new content really stands out as impressive. Players will find exploring on their faithful companion, whether on the ground or in the sky, is quite the fun time, and the Dragon Isles themselves are well worth the journey. It may feel like jumping in the deep end here for newbies, but top to bottom, Dragonflight still feels like a great reason to play WoW.
World of Warcraft: Dragonflight is somehow a breath of fresh air and a celebration of classic design principles in equal measure. The return to more dynamic, old-school talent trees enhances the class fantasy with a seasoning of new abilities across the board. At the same time, the retreat of pressuring, artificial power-gating systems promotes a more healthy gameplay loop. The game is also gorgeous, with a more promising storyline, elevated cinematic delivery mechanics, and deeper core systems which make for one of WoW's best expansions in years.
Dragonflight is an expansion rich in major new features based more on exploration and history. No more endless farming of an essential resource for the evolution of your character as was the case with the prodigious power, or more recently the Anima in previous expansions. Even though the game is technically aging, the art direction is still enjoyable and, in a way, the game still beautiful. The atmospheres are varied, the scenery is huge and the music is always pleasant to listen to (special mention to the theme of dragon flight races). Many hours of fun in perspective.
