  IGN: Wheel of Time Review
I came to Wheel of Times with the sort of open arms that would make Steve Perry proud, without expectations of how the game should be, or better be.
That's not to say that Wheel of Time misuses the license -- I think they do an incredible job of trying to capture the large, epic feel of the series, but miss out on the market or markets that they are attempting to appeal to by staying on the genre fence.
Wheel of Time ends up in a gaming purgatory, definitely not bad enough to be panned, but lacking the certain magic that would send it straight to gaming heaven.

 The Wheel of Time for PC Review - PC The Wheel of Time Review
When The Wheel of Time was first announced, gamers and Robert Jordan fans had reason to be both excited and apprehensive.
Wheel of Time promised a mix of first-person action, role-playing, adventure, and strategy, which is a combination few games have ever effectively managed.
On the other hand, because the Wheel of Time novels are so deep, so intricate, and so well-loved by legions of devoted Jordan fans, the game seemed destined to disappoint.

 Neverwinter Nights: Wheel of Time Persistent World
And thus Wheel of Time: The Third Age was born.
The huge success of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time fantasy books (the last few were number one on the NY Times Bestseller list) lead to an agreement with Wizards of the Coast to develop a WoT pen and paper RPG that was similar to d20.
Wheel of Time players are a special group in that regard.

 The Wheel of Time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the beginning, the Creator made the Wheel of Time, which spins the Pattern of the Ages using the lives of men and women as its threads.
The Wheel has seven spokes, each representing an age, and it is rotated by the True Source from which the One Power, a source of magic, is drawn.
To counter this imbalance, the Wheel caused the Dragon, a channeler of immense power, to be born as the champion of the Light.

 Wheel of time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The wheel of time or wheel of history is a concept in several religions and philosophies, notably dharmic religions such as Buddhism and Hinduism, which regard time as cyclical and consisting of repeating ages.
The Wheel of time or Kalachakra is a Tantric deity that is also associated with Tibetan Tantric Buddhism, which encompasses all four main schools and traditions which are Sakya, Nyingma, Kagyu and Gelug, and is especially important within the lesser-known Jonang tradition.
The Kalachakra is prophecied to bring about a cosmic challenge to the world within which (spiritual) conflict an Armageddon-style war will be waged which will see the advent of a new realm named Shambhala and the coming of a messianical king of the kingdom.

 Wheel of Time
Spanning 10,000+ pages, translated into multiple languages and topping the NY Times bestseller lists on each release, Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time novels is a classic fantasy series with a breadth and depth unmatched by other authors in the genre.
Central to the Wheel of Time is magic, referred to as Channeling, weaving, or the use of the One Power.
Quoting history, the time of 'The Breaking', Aes Sedai (female channelers associated with the White Tower of Tar Valon) are convinced that men tainted with the Power must inevitably lose their senses.

 The Spacetime Wheel
As the wheel rotates, the coordinates (x, y) of a point on the wheel relative to its centre change, but the distance r between the point and the centre remains constant
The spacetime wheel offers a cute way to solve this problem, since the rotating spacetime wheel can be regarded as representing spacetime frames undergoing constant acceleration.
Specifically, points on the right quadrant of the rotating spacetime wheel represent worldlines of persons who accelerate with constant acceleration in their own frame.

 Review of Wheel of Time
Wheel of Time offers standard gameplay in the majority of the game, and the elements that attempt to break out of convention fail miserably.
Worse, before a later patch, Wheel of Time multiplayer needed a dedicated server to run, so if you wanted to just run around a map to see where all the good items were, you were out of luck if didn't have your own personal computer network.
Wheel of Time tries to transcend its FPS roots in another way, by adding the aforementioned story.

Imagine a great cosmic loom in the shape of a seven-spoked wheel, slowly spinning through eternity, weaving the fabric of the universe.
The Wheel touches what might be, what might have been, and what is. It touches the world of dreams as well as the world of waking.
In this world where there is no one beginning or one end, for each spoke of the great Wheel represents one of the seven Ages, receding into the past and returning in the future as the Wheel spins, the fabric of each age changing only its weave and pattern with each passing.

The previous book in Jordan's massive Wheel of Time, Crossroads of Twilight, may have come out in 2003, but don't let that fool you; the 11th tome in this epic fantasy is the one Jordan fans have been eagerly waiting for the better part of a decade.
The breakneck pace, lyrical beauty and astonishing scope of the early Wheel of Time volumes established Jordan as one of the top writers in the Tolkien tradition.
As the Wheel of Time spins on, I felt that some of Jordan's descriptions were becomming long winded.

Alone amongst the wretched refuse of human decay and the slow dereliction of time stands the steeple of the over-grand Inn of Five Thorns.
Beneath its gables men from all walks of life come together, as with every Inn the world over, to share the familiar warmth of the hearth, the roar of conversation and the pretense of camaraderie sown by a common dissent.
The Thorns draws men (and some women) like a lodestone draws steel, pulled to the one place among the detritus of their lives where pain can be shared like water and man may, for a time, forget the past.

The most striking aspect of Wheel of Time is how it captures the devotion of not just the monks, but also the half-million pilgrims who crowd Bodh Gaya, India, for the event.
They travel miles and miles on foot – and some even do prostrations with every step, laying down on the rocky trail and even in streambeds.
Wheel of Time's coverage of the same ritual held months later in Austria is a little less interesting, but it illustrates how Buddhism has spread to the West, as well as offering more time with the Dalai Lama, who presides over the ceremony there.
