Reviewing a big title that people will play for months, if not for years can be frustrating. On one hand you have to point out all the new improvements (such as the new spells for the higher levels) and big changes while at the same time trying to think ahead and seeing if some of these changes will cause problems over the long haul. And unless you are psychic you are bound to be wrong on at least some of your predictions.
From the technical standpoint not much has changed since the release so everybody who is able to run WoW will have no problems playing TBC. The graphics in the expansion as still very cartooney, but when playing at 1920x1200 without a hitch you can actually appreciate the engine. The music in the expansion is without a doubt just as good as it was in the original WoW, which means that most of the game musical scores aren't even comparable to it.
So how good is The Burning Crusade? For someone who plays WoW only casually the answer is quite simple: Very good. The new starting areas are a good reason to create a new character and having more choices can't be bad. Outland is also very casual friendly and the new quests are some of the best WoW has ever seen. What about the die hard WoW players? They are most likely among the 2,4 million players who bought TBC within the first 24 hours. If not, the same reasons still hold and the new raid instances are just an added bonus. Buying TBC is a win-win situation for everyone, except maybe for the friends who will miss seeing you outside of your house. Highly recommended!
