Very good expansion of the Warcraft series,
This review is from: Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne Expansion Pack (CD-ROM)
This game beats any other add on pack ever invented. Their is so much more to do, its like purchasing the original again for the first time. The new units do do their tasks, like for example The Orcs weak points have been strenghened, i.e. a new flying unit (troll bat) and the troll berserkers, which adds to the orcs ranged fighters. And the nightelfs for example received a new devestating melee unit (find out yourself).
Also, now that boats have been reintroduced from Warcraft 2, their is more variety of how to transport units.
Each race received there new hero, which are all good in their own way, and are better than the employable heroes, which aren't as good as the original heroes.
The levels have been redesigned, and also are a whole lot different to the original. New multiplayer maps also await you, in bigger and better qualities.
The map editor has been remade, with possibilities in making your own campaigns with better triggers and also a speech capability, so now the dialogues have sound.(wait a bit for my own Gnoll campaign!!!!!)
due to the new units and so, there will have to be some new tactics made by opposition to beat a race, and I think there won't be many more "Necro/Dryad" rushes, because the new units can counter act old strategies (to an extent) and some of the old units have changed a bit (similar to patch 1.06)
This game is definatley worth buying if you love the previous and want to know what happens next. The game will most probably give you the same pleasure as the original.
