Haha, amazing! I've found an old "PC Games" magazine in my native language a couple of years ago and read through the review of World of Warcraft with such a delight.

"All this stuff just happens all around you and the whole thing feels so cohesive and so rich with detail that you really do feel like you're in this other place." When you think about it, in the mindset and expectation of 2004 this product was really immersive.

I also still have this book called World of Warcraft: Ultimate Visual Guide.. I would read it when my internet was down. Good times.

It’s interesting how the reviewer talks about WoW as more action oriented and less punishing than earlier MMORPGs (in a good way) and now we want Vanilla back because Retail feels more action oriented and hold-your-hand kind of less punishing (have not played since Wotlk so I’m basing this on what I read). It’s a fine line - and Vanilla (some might say TBC) perhaps is right there, balanced between this and that.

Its crazy seeing this review, and yeah it is mad that we want vanilla back. Id say that BC/Wrath might be the sweet spot between vanilla and what we have now, but i think alot of that depends on when you started playing and when you got into wow.

Man, I remember watching this review back at the time. Cool to see it again after all these years.

That's a great video and does really well to capture everything we still love about vanilla WoW. Particularly back pedalling Tauren shamans destroying human female rogues :lol:
