This isn't merely an expansion. - This is practically a whole new game. The software team at Blizzard has outdone themselves once again, bringing us yet another great Role-play stategy masterpiece. Frozen Throne gives us more Warcraft 3, chock full of great new units, diverse new heroes, and 26 new levels in the campaign/story of Azeroth. Frozen Throne is full of new items, creeps, and multiplayer options and levels. I really can't think of anything worth complaining about concerning this release. I myself found Warcraft 3 to be a little difficult; even after playing for months and honing my skills. Fortuneatly, if you have a hard time with Frozen Throne and get tired of punching the monitor in aggravation, you can now adjust the difficulty of your opponent. Three settings: Easy, Normal, and Insane. There is also a nifty Handicap option in the setup screen that can make computer controlled players a bit weaker. So aside from the cool new units and heroes, this game brings more balance to the Warcraft experience. Blizzard has done a great job adjusting and modifying units, hit points, and build times from the previous game. For instance: Some buildings now build faster, certain units cost less food points, and the total food cap is now raised. - Adversely, some buildings now take longer to upgrade, heroes gain experience slower after a time, and particular items are now more expensive etc.. The list goes on. Though I am glad to report that just about all of the changes are good. The game is better balanced and a bit more fun now. The new units and maps (even has weather effects now -/snow/ rain) breathe new life into the Warcraft world. This is definitely a better offering than the original Warcraft 3. -Hardcore RTS/RPS gamers and newcomers alike would be foolish to pass up a seat on The Frozen Throne.

Warcraft 3 hit over a year ago with a cliffhanger ending that left fans drooling for more. Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne continues the saga of Warcraft, with interesting new changes.
Each race gets a new hero added to the ranks, as well as several new units. These new units enhance the races with great new abilities. Aside from these new units, there are also new items to be found in the game, as well as a few joke items that refer to other Blizzard classics, like Diablo II. New Creeps are also roaming around the game, waiting to be killed by your heroes!
The story continues, and this time it is explained from different perspectives. In fact, the Alliance campaign and the Dark Elf campaigns are like playing 2 more completely new races, which you will understand once you start playing. There are also a few hidden features, such as secret levels and other easter eggs that you will have to look hard to find. Blizzard definitely put alot of time into making a quality product. There is even a bonus downloadable Orc campaign. There are only 2 new cinematics, but most of the story is explained through good in-game cutscenes, with some excellent voice acting.
Orc fans will be sorely disappointed, as they are flat-out ignored in this expansion. The Orcs have absolutely no influence or bearing on the story at all, nor are they ever mentioned once in any campaign. The bonus campaign 'The Founding of Durotar', which details their settling and adjustment into their new lands in Kalimdor, is only one chapter with many, many sub-missions. Blizzard promises that they will release more chapters to the campaign for download in coming weeks, though it is not clear how many chapters there will be, or how long the wait will be between chapters.

this expansion pack is going to comletely change WC3 for the better... WC3+expansion will definatly be one of the best RTS games for quite some time. I'm currently beta testing the game, so i should be able to give a rough idea of how it should turn out for the final release. Lot's of new features (i'm not going to get into details that are already avialable at the expansion pack website, for you can read there yourself)....
- my favorite new hero is the orc hero.... its like a powerfull voodoo witchdoctor..... most notable is his healing spell (which finally gives orcs a healing option for early game) which acts like chain lightning, but has a healing effect.
- spellcasters have been changed.... their attack type is now "magic attack"..... their armor type is now "unarmed". I won't get into the details of how the attack and armor works, because they are likely to be modified for final release.
- spellcasters now have inventory! a 2 slot inventory.
- ancients now have heavy armor when uprooted (makes ancient rushing a little harder i guess)
- all races can now build item shops with items unique to each civ. Most notible is that each civ's item shop gets a unique orb... orcs get orb of lightning ;D.... orbs arnt available until tier3 though and cost about 400gold on current beta.
- cyclone is now dispelable
- crypt fiends (and other undead units) can learn the burrow ability which lets them dig into the ground and act as a spy/regen health
- you can now buy transport BOATS (at goblin shipyards)... this should make for some interesting water maps hopefully.
- orc burrows can be upgraded to heavy burrows which have fortified armor instead of medium.
- when units are following a hero, they mimic the heros actions.. i.e.
