For a few years now market analytics have been saying that PC gaming is in decline. Judging from the sales figures of PC games there is at least some truth to their claims. But every single claim of theirs is void when you look at the sales figures of Blizzards MMO behemoth – World of Warcraft. The latest reports say that currently there are over 8 million active subscribers playing the game, every one of them shelling $15 per month to Blizzard.
Surprisingly it seems that even those numbers are not big enough for the team responsible for WoW. As with every MMO an expansion pack was bound to come out and I'm sure that no matter how bad it was people would still buy it like there was no tomorrow. But as Blizzard have shown with The Frozen Throne (the expansion pack for Warcraft III) their expansions are usually just as good as the original product if not better. That leaves us with the question: “Just how good is The Burning Crusade?”
