The Whole Of It (5 out of 5)
As you enter Curse.com, you’ll find a clear, clean site that offers you easy navigation throughout the different portals and areas that you can use to find exactly what you need. The site itself is a great combination of colors that compliment each other: orange, grey, and white – which make it easy to read and easy to find what you need right away. At the top, you will easily find tabs that offer you a link to different areas of the site that are broken down into main categories: News, Forums, WoW Addons, WAR Addons, Blogs, Images, Client (for downloads) and one for BlizzCon 2008. You will also find tabs that take you to the different addons that Curse offers, the database of information here, and special PvP stat monitors that the site offers as well. For the ease of use of their main page and navigation tabs, I’m going to give Curse.com a solid 5 out of 5 as most sites are too jumbled to find the information that you really want.
World of Warcraft Addons (5 out of 5)
For all of you WoWHeads out there, Curse.com is your one stop shop for all of the addons that you could possibly want. While there are other sites out there online that offer you addons, you won’t find the massive compilation that you will on Curse. You’ll find the popular Auctioneer here, as well as other auction addons that will help you find the best deals, help you keep track of your sales, and more. You’ll also find the QuestHelper, which gives you great access to exact points on the map where you’ll find the items and mobs you need to complete your quests. And, one of my favorite addons are the coordinate addons so you can easily find your way around new areas by simply heading to those coordinates. On Curse.com’s World of Warcraft addons page, they have a beautiful layout of blues and whites, that offers you yet another clear view of all that they have to offer. And, they also have a list that is continuously updating for the latest addons and updates to addons so you’ll always have the latest version. You can also find addons sorted by class here, to find the ones that will best suit your main toon. Overall, for the ease of use and the massive amount of addons that you’ll find for World of Warcraft here, I give Curse.com’s WoW addon area a great 5 out of 5.
Warhammer Online Addons (5 out of 5)
Need the latest WAR addons to help you with your toons? Well, look no further than Curse.com. There are plenty of other sites out there that will offer you some great addons and information on WAR, but I have to admit that this is the most impressive list of addons that I’ve come across for WAR. It is also organized the same way that the WoW addons are, so it is extremely easy to find what you need and ensure that you have the latest version. You’ll find a list of the most downloaded addons, a list of the most recently updated addons, and a list of categories so you can easily find the best addon that you need to help your gaming style when it comes to Warhammer Online. For the great, massive list of addons that you’ll find here for WAR, I am going to give Curse yet another 5 out of 5.
News (3 out of 5)
Curse also offers a News tab where you can find some of the latest information about your favorite games. I regularly check this area of their site, and I have noticed that they are more skewed to World of Warcraft (one of their biggest advertisers) and Warhammer Online. Occasionally, you’ll see some other news here, but the vast majority is these two main MMORPGs. While you will find some great news and information here, I’m going to only give this area of Curse.com a 3 out of 5 because I feel that they could cover some of the other popular MMORPG games out there as well.
Overall (3 out of 5)
Well, with the great ratings that Curse gets from me (and many readers and users around the world) I have to say that I give it a 4 out of 5 overall just because their site is a bit geared only toward WoW and WAR. But, understanding that those are the two main MMORPGs on the market today, I can understand why they are doing it that way. For those of you out there who are looking for addons for these two games and have been having a hard time finding them, or downloading them, I would recommend that you head over to Curse.com and check out their huge selection. You will also find their downloads easy and quick, and you’ll be back in game in no time.
