I enjoyed Dragon Soul, but not so much for the strengths Mathew enphazised, namely, both Deathwing encounters.In my opinion, Spine doesn´t feel like you are riding in the back of a giant dragon at all. Someone who played Shadow of Colossus for the Playstation 2 or even fought Cronos in God of War 3 might understand what I am saying. It feels more like you are fightning on a ground made of plate with 4 holes where ooze keeps coming out and where a gust comes if you stack on the left or right. Some movement by Deathwing when he does his barrel roll would have been realy nice to give us a real impression of flying.And Madness is actually just an add fight. You have to pay so much attention to his tentacles that you really don´t even get to see Deathwing in the back. Sometimes I even forgot we are facing him. Also, the encounters repeats itself too much... Kill corruption, AOE adds, kill tendons, kill paw, repeat 3 times, kill adds, kill head, win. Ragnaros, for instance, had a lot more sauce in the mechanics. I won´t even mention the Lich King or Yogg-Saron fights (which is also an add fight, but much, much better).The parts I enjoyed the most were entering the spawn of the Old Gods to defeat their generals... having been ambushed by Hagara in the Eye... and the boss that Matthew loafed the most... Ultraxion... Not because of the mechanic, it is basically a tank and spank... But because we can only defeat him with the help of the Aspects... They are so desperate that he might bring the Hour of Twillight, and empower us so we can defend them. That was one of the top moments in the raid for me.
