Rosencratz, there's a difference between an intelligent response (yours) and a non-intelligent response (Reinhard calling me a whiner). I don't care if people disagree with me. It does bother me if someone goes "oooh pretty colors" when they're playing LK and then calls me a whiner because I see some flaws in the canvas.I will agree that Northrend is a vast improvement in story over areas in the original game which were very simplistic. But better doesn't mean good. The story elements in WoW are still a far cry from games with good story elements such as Morrowind, Oblivion, The original Baldur's Gate series, Fallout 1-3. and I could go on. The story elements in LK have all been rather blah. "This is how this guy fights the LK", "this is how that guy fights the LK", "my sister's been killed by the LK and now I'm all broody and emo". Nothing nuanced, nothing which makes me feel like I'm watching an epic story unfold. It's more akin to reading a child's comic on postcards.So yes, it's better and a vast improvement over the original WoW, but again, doesn't live up to the competition...... and Blizzard has the resources to have really done that and I feel like they completely failed.
