Excellent work Blizz!It had a dark and serious tone, a much needed change after all the sillyness in the goblin starting zone (and WoW in general, with all those pop culture references and whatnot).5/5

All the 'silliness" in the goblin zone is specifically there to offset the uberserious tone of the horde in general, all the other horde races are angst ridden in the extreme. Its nice having a bit of a comic relief race, kinda like the Alliance has had for years.

I agree Eternauta. I loved the Worgen zone much more than the Goblin one on beta (they're both pretty amazing) because it really immerses you into the zone and the story. You feel like you're a part of the story much more in the Worgen one whereas i was always conscious i was playing a game in the Goblin one. Don't get me wrong, i love the humour in WoW, but i also love to be immersed in a believable world and i think the Worgen start zone pulled that off better.

Don't feint but I agree with Eternauta here. I'm so glad the Worgen starting zone isn't just full of the shallow, gimmicky feel of the Goblin zone. The race doesn't appeal to me at all, so that's fine. On the opposite end, the Worgen get a dark lore-tasty, developed story of people struggling to contain their inner monster while, essentially, fighting monsters. I love it. Now if only we could play our story out fully rather than being shunted to Elf-Town while the Forsaken get to see it play out. That will never be cool with me. Overall awesome cinematic. Though, I have to say it reminded me a LOT of Anthony Hopkins little dialogue to his son just before he unleashes him on the world in the movie, Wolfman.
