    if it says expansion pack then yes. but i suggest you get guild wars.Free online play, plus you can buy any one you want , you dont have to expand upon a basic version

    You need the original WoW, and burning crusade adds quests, worlds, and content that can pretty much only can be accessed by being level 40+. I'd also encourage Guild Wars, it so much fun! I played both WoW and GW and i prefer GW any day.

    no its not. my friend bought BC without buying the original and all he had to do was download the original WoW from the website (well actualy i did that for him because he doesnt know anything about computers lol)

    They might just be selling it to the kiddos who dont have the patience for the massive download.

    i was thinking about starting to play. but i dont know. maybe if you buy burning crusade you can verify with the site that you paid for it and therefore the initial download of WoW would be free? just spitballing though haha

    WoW original is a free download. Browse around their main site and you will find it. The box is still in stores because some people want an actual CD/DVD with a box and a manual. It's a ploy; gives you options.

    If you download it from the website you don't get a free month. Buying it in the store gives you your first month free. Considering the original WOW cost only $20 bucks and a month is $15 to play then you're really only spending $5 more then you would if you downloaded it and paid for your first month. $5 to own the cd's is well worth not having to download it. Especially if you have multiple pc's and want it on every one.

    Plus you get the manual, which is a big deal for a lot of people. You also get a 10 day trial code to share with a friend who also may be thinking about playing.

    And just to share my opinion, I think WOW is so much better then GW.

    You do get a 10 day trial, which isn't cool because there's a few things you can't do that the full version allows...such as trading with other players.

    I don't think Louisiana has anything to do with Canada.
