REIGN OF CHAOS
Warcraft 3 is one of the best RTS games ever made. This is the game that really expanded the warcraft universe and presented the rich lore that would lay the foundations for the popular MMO World of Warcraft. Warcraft came out a time when they still made physical manuals for the games. The manual itself is more than just a manual. Its a tome of knowledge that gives you detailed lore.
Reing of Chaos also marked when the series truly came into its own. It introduced 2 new playable factions in the form of the Nightelves and Undead. The graphics were updated to full 3D polygonal models and featured cutscenes and voiced dialogue between missions which progressed the story.
For those unfamiliar you assume control of one of the four aforementioned races and in typical RTS fashion build bases and units and research upgrades. To do so you harvest gold and lumber as your primary resources. As your army grows you enter upkeep where you need more and more resources. This calls for expansion and building second bases. Its a delicate balance you have to walk. Expand too soon and you likely won't have enough units to fend off enemy attacks. Wait to expand too long and your enemy may prove to be too difficult to deal with as you spend more gold to replenish your lost troops. Your gold and lumber aren't infinite. Each race has certain advantages when it comes to the economic aspect of the game. Humans can assign more than one builder to a structure to shorten build times at the cost of more resources. Nightelves can summon or grow structures by using wisps. These wisps also can harvest lumber without needing to return it to the base by hand Undead can haunt gold mines.
Its these nuanced differences that make each faction interesting to play. There are also creeps around the map that you can kill to level your heroes which can use items like scrolls and more to enhance their abilities they earn as they level up.
Beyond the single player the game also offers multiplayer as well as the utilities to make your own maps and scenarios. Its this feature that gave rise to the MOBA's we have today like LoL, Dota II and even Heroes of the Storm.
Its rare that a sequel delivers another satisfying chapter in an ongoing story. That is why Frozen Throne is so good. It doesn't change the formula of WCIII but it doesn't have to. It builds on what was an already excellent game and delivers the culmination of Arthas and Illidan's stories as well as the rise of the Lich King. Frozen Throne once again has 4 single player campaigns which feature new heroes and units. Among these are the blood elves and Pandaren Brewmaster. One of the campaigns is the orcish campaign that is a RPG style campaign that features the hero Rexxar.
Both the base game and this expansion can be bought for about $10 each digitally or can be found in the battle chest which is arguably the better deal. If you saw the Warcraft movie or want to learn more about the lore, this is a great starting point.… Expand
