  1. The campaigns are dynamic to an extent, but it’s very similar to many other “destroy everything” games such as Warcraft. Like that’s bad.
  2. Every scenario features a chain of dynamic events that will keep you alert and busy almost constantly. In addition, the storyline is well-structured and has amazing character depth.

    It's a pretty average addition to a fantastic base.
  4. Technically a pretty solid add-on to last year's distinctive martial-arts-themed real-time strategy game.

    The new units are not terribly exciting and the campaign, while well above average, is still far too short.

    An above average game that doesn't rock the boat. [Feb 2003, p.84]
  7. It truly is a fun game and the new campaign is a great new addition and makes for a whole different game.

    Rounds the original game out nicely, providing a surprisingly un-chilling reception to those burnt out on battle.net. [Feb 2003, p.81]
  9. 60
    It offers little incentive to reinstall the rapidly ageing masterpiece.

    A year later, the presentation isn't dazzling anymore, and the shell is even emptier. [Mar 2003, p.108]

    Winter of the Wolf added some story depth Battle Realms sorely needed
    it tells a tale of an enslaved people, who broke from their chains with a lot of sacrifice pain and blood
    the mission structure is simply, survive, slay and succeed

    the wolf clan got a lot of interesting units i won't spoil, but i can promise you this
    you'll enjoy the BR vanilla campaign a lot more if you finish this first.
