    More than just an expansion - technically, I think the game could be considered a sequel with all the depth that is in the game. If you have Reign of Chaos, this is a must buy for you and RTS fans everywhere.
  2. If all the features that come with the game aren’t enough value for your hard earned gaming dollar, well you’ll be playing for at least 60-80 hours on the campaign alone.
  3. Frozen Throne has wonderful controls that are smooth and really intuitive. Plus the game adds a whole slew of new things for players to control, from units to heroes.
  4. The quintessential expansion pack; with more to do, see, and experience on many different levels. [Sept 2003, p.122]
  5. An enjoyable expansion despite the terrible dialogue and subpar story from the original continuing on.
  6. Manages to fix the balance problems that crept up in WarCraft III, but is unable to fix the fundamental problem. The game remains at an uncomfortable middle-ground between strategy and tactics, not giving enough of either or focusing explicitly on one.
  7. The single-player game’s extreme difficulty will throw off many people, and the less than satisfactory ending will leave a bad taste in your mouth.

    CONTAINS SPOILERS !
    This expansion, completes the story of the fallen prince leading him to became "ONE" with the Lich King. One of the best stroy telling in its Genre with an amazing story, Frozen Throne is not an easy game to beat in its single player campaign. One, should play this expansion before starting WOW series inorder to have a full understanding of the events. It is not satisfactory to read it from forums since it is important to feel like Arthas before killing him in WOW. Arthas had reasons before walking through his dark path. 10/10

    This is how you make an expansion!

    Blizzard took the base game, added some new units for each of the 4 races, added a stunning campaign and improved and fixed all the quirks and issues of the original game. Then they improved the world editor making it one of the most powerful modding tools, allowing one to create fantastic maps, some of which even became standalone games (DotA), and also added support for player-made custom campaigns.

    This is a masterpiece, a lesson in game-design. Probably the best RTS ever!

If a human god (lyking) says it needs fixing then you know they did something wrong. Why are you allowing a tier 1 unit to counter a tier 3? Is Blizzard retarded? Daddy needs a better game and Blizzard needs to provide. We need good content for good steak dinners. Expand
