This review is from: Warcraft III Battle Chest - PC/Mac (Video Game)
Locked away in my room at 3am, headphones on my head and whispering into my microphone at my teammate on Skype, I play Warcraft like an addict.

The single player version is very interesting, with a great storyline and cool cutscenes. You get to play as several different heroes from different races, and the story develops throughout each one, continuing into the next race. There is one campaign for each race in the original version (Scourge, Sentinel, Orc, etc) and there are even more campaigns in Frozen Throne, along with a "Bonus Campaign" which I highly recommend.

It will take many many hours to finish the campaign, so the game is definately not too easy. However, some levels can get frustrating because of their difficulty. If you're having problems, that's what the strategy guides are for. The battle chest comes with guides that have level-specific tips; they tell you where to go to get a secret item, or what sorts of units to create to counter the attacks.

The gameplay is very similar to that of Starcraft and similar as well to Age of Empires. The controls are simple; click to select, click-drag to select a group, and right-click to move or attack.I find it very easy to control what I want to do, and make 'control groups' (ctrl+a number) to select my units quicker.

The graphics are solid, the music fits the mood, and the game is very, very addicting.

The best part, in my opinion, is DotA - get your friends together and download the map, and spend hours developing your strategy with 77 different heroes, each with their own special ablilities. If you want to play the normal version, that's available as well on Bnet. Playing online is completely free, and updates are sent through the bnet portal.

I love this game!
