With a monthly subscription, players can experience the epic adventure of the "Warcraft®" series in an immersive and continually evolving online environment.

I'm running WoW Maxed out completely and it looks godlike and amazing.

Sorry but the graphics in wow suck. The landscape and cities are somewhat nicely done but the models are mostly simple and childish, as are most textures. Just take a look at barrels. Horrible. But still it brings over the roleplaying feeling much better than anything else MMO I ever played. Thats why I took it over eq2.

I'm not... gonna... cry... you... dumb... doo-doo brain!
