Warcraft III, The Frozen Throne,
This review is from: Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne Expansion Pack (CD-ROM)
Since first getting hold of the first Warcraft game I was hooked and eagerly awaited each new title as it was announced, developed and published. Warcraft II and then finally after some time Warcraft III. Now The expansion pack has been released. Just as much thought has been put into this one as there was in the original and I am more than pleased to say that it contains many new features and one old feature that was missing in Warcraft III and that is the ships for sea travel. This was a good is a good thing as it will make the game more interesting and not become monotenous. There are lots of new map textures and new creeps to make things interesting. To each race has been given one more Hero to use and it may take some time to learn what each ability of these new Hero's are good for. Apart from the new hero's new units have been added to the mercenary shops that are found across the various maps in this game and these characters can act as heros as well and so upgrading from the normal slice and dice ogres and trolls that can be hired. Apart from the new characters and added features to the game the story continues in this game and we get to find out what happens to Illidian who now wanders the world free but menaced by his past and so bound by it and prince Arthur who last was seen giving the vital information required to the elves to defeat the burning legions.
All in all the game lives up to the true spirit of Warcraft and is a game that was worth waiting for.
I award it full marks for the excellent graphics, excellent game play and for being a Perfect way of beating you boss in something!!
