Review of WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne

2013-06-27

WarCraft III: Reign of Chaos is a free video game that involves real time strategies and is the third part of the WarCraft range. Its two new outstanding features in comparison to the other versions are the incorporation of 3D graphics and two new ethnic groups.

The game basically consists of administering the available resources such as gold, wood and groceries to sustain military units and lead them against enemies. The game is full of attack and defense strategies. In the game you will find humans, orches, elves, and a bunch of the living dead.

WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne continues the story and introduces new type of military units and strategies. If you want to try it yourself, all you need to do is download it.

This is a review of The Frozen Throne expansion pack which was released in 2003 for the wonderful WarCraft III: Reign of Chaos. It continues the story after the Scourges’ defeat. While some of these game have come off in recent years, it’s really been good at retaining what's really enjoyable about them.

The Frozen Throne focuses on characters that didn’t initially take center stage in WarCraft III. The game consists of three main campaigns; it’s a beefy expansion pack.

In The Frozen Throne, the game engine is identical. However, there are loads of new tiles, terrains, creatures and units. This adds new diversity to units; units also have naval and 4th character options. There are also blueprints for placing new buildings and new music. Developers obviously took great care with this game. In one mission, you have to hail a prison cage across enemy lines. It’s a very innovative use of AI. It’s one of the most memorable missions; as is the final one, where you have to control four obelisks while your enemy attempts to do the same. At the same time, there are plenty of dull dungeon missions.

Having a difficulty level setting is much-welcome. But if you’re playing for the storyline like I do, this entire expansion pack might feel like a step down.
