Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Saying that Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos has been eagerly awaited is like saying that David Hasslehoff likes the idea of mini bars. Millions of wannabe Orcs and Elves have been clamouring for Blizzard's latest slice of fantasy strategy, so was it worth the wait?

After a 15-year stewing period, the Orc clans have regrouped and decided to unearth the hatchets and bury them in the human alliance. In true RTS fashion, you choose from Orcish Hordes, the Human Alliance, the Undead Scourge or the Night Elves Sentinels and, using wood and gold reserves, build bases and armies needed to leather the competition.

Unlike many a strategy fest, Blizzard have done away with unit envy and opted to give you more control over much smaller groups, but rest assured, the developers have really done their homework on this one. Expenditure of those all-important reserves won't allow you to sustain massive armies, so the key lies in developing your forces with a considered upgrade and maintenance approach.

It may be a time of war, but it's also a time of heroes, and you'll need them in order to stand a fighting chance. Whatever race you choose, quests and battles endow your heroes with greater physical and magical abilities, and experienced heroes help your surrounding troops, adding some zing to their swing.

Unsurprisingly, Blizzard have done more than just spruce up the gameplay; the proprietary 3-D engine produces a beautifully detailed world in which to wreak bloody mayhem. It all sounds great too, with believably voiced and regularly comical dialogue. --Tae Mawson

4.0 out of 5 stars Gameplay wins! 29 July 2002
In a world where computer games are judged almost primarily on their looks, it is refreshing that Warcraft 3 is such a gem. Don't get me wrong, the graphics for Warcraft 3 are very nice indeed and the animations are also equally pleasurable; but this is no graphics fest and I am glad.
I have a Pentium 3 866 with a Geforce 2mx 32mb graphics card and I am running Windows 2000 and I have no problems jacking the graphics levels up to max.
The Gameplay is what makes this game so enjoyable. The 4 races (Humans, Orcs, Night Elves and Undead) are all quite different from each other in quite anumber of aspects, from how they gather resources to combat units and abilities. For instance, whilst 3 of the races hack down trees to gather lumber, the Night Elves accumulate wood without destroying the trees (though be it at a slower rate).
The Micromanagement has been kept to a minimum, gather Gold and Wood, build a force, go kill. But there are differences to most RTS games. The use of heroes is especially a good move as is adding 'creeps' (Neutral monsters) which defend gold mines and other neutral buildings and provide potential experience and magic items for your heroes.
An upkeep has also been itroduced so that a player with a large force of troops receives less gold from mining than the others to help stop the larger force from growing to the point where you will face wave upon wave of forces. This does however make players more aggressive in their playing nature, as you can no longer churn out masses of troops at a quick t'rate and in order to receive more money again, it is wise to harrass the enemy and lose a few troops in the process in order to reduce the upkeep.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good all-round game with endless replayability 10 April 2005
I originally bought this game on the recommendation of a friend of mine, having never played any of the previous games in the Warcraft series or indeed heard of it, but I was pleasantly surprised with the end product.
Warcraft 3 is a real-time strategy game set in a universe of both technology and magic, where you order an army in an attempt to eliminate your opponent from the game by destroying all their buildings, or in single-player mode possibly achieve some other goal such as holding a strategical point on the map for half an hour. While many other games of this genre are very shallow and offer a few hours' worth of gameplay, Warcraft 3 has an involving and rich storyline, coupled with both in-game conversations between characters that may tell you what to do and out-of-game movies that further the storyline and look so realistic they may well have just come out of a film.
While the single-player campaign may be difficult, you can reduce the difficulty at the end of a mission you have just lost if you are finding it hard.
The 3rd edition in the Warcraft series also adds 'heroes', units that are both powerful warriors and can cast varying spells. They can also be levelled up in an RPG-style fashion, adding another strategic element to the game which works very well.
In the Warcraft 3 storyline, there are four races, each tailored to suit different styles of gameplay, and everyone can find one race that they enjoy playing as and tend to get the best results out of. The four races are as follows;
Humans: A well balanced force, consisting of cheap original ground units and solid air units and spellcasters.
Orcs: Especially strong ground units but somewhat lacking when it comes to spellcasting capabilities.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a sequel should be..... 6 Jan 2003
Warcraft 3 is what a sequel should be; it improves on the previous game in every way and isn’t a trashy recycled game turned out to make the company a bit of money. The first thing you will notice is that Warcraft has now gone 3D and has benefited from it. Not only are the models and the textures easy on the eye, they allow the game to run smoothly by having in game sequences without the need to cut to a film. Also it is possible to zoom in and view the world up close. The sound effects and speech is also top notch and very well done. The voice actors really bring the game to life.
There are also two new armies, the Undead Scourge and the Night Elves. This means there are now 4 races to choose from with very different styles of play. The Human and Orc armies have also changed quite a bit since the last game and can be counted as completely new armies only one or two units remain from the previous game. Each race is also different from the units they have; the buildings and how they are built and even the way each race gather resources. Humans have a varied mixed of units most of, which are quite cheap when, compared to the Orcs. But Orcs have some of the strongest melee units in the game. Only one air unit and very basic magic however compensates for these differences. The undead have either very strong units or very weak units. The magic is often limited to raising the dead and cold magic but it is still strong magic. The Undead can only build on blighted ground that is generated by buildings that limits the areas they can build in. The Night elf have very weak units and most of them are long ranged with little melee units but they have some very strong magic spells and more magic units than the other races. Also their buildings can uproot and defend themselves!
