Aug 20, 2013A war between humans and orcs escalate across the seas in a continuing struggle of dominance as the two races forge alliances with other factions and expand their forces to conquer all of Azeroth. Struggle between the alliance and the horde become more harsh as the dark portal re-opens and demons become a new threat in the lands of Azeroth.
This expansion introduces new units and structures, with a new map type. The story is also continued in the lands on the other side of the dark portal as the horde struggles to survive, as the alliance tries to purify the lands.
The game is a classic real-time strategy from the mid 90s, and it's a classic at that. The setting is a medieval fantasy where conflict is separated by two factions. The graphics are very colorful and lively, the music is very catchy, and it never gets old. The mechanics of the Warcraft II are broken in some ways, and the multiplayer can be easily cheated. Despite the game play flaws, it is still a very fun game, and the campaign offers a lot of challenge.
