    Excellence demands excellence and Blizzard could have honored its great heritage in a better way. It remains one of the cornerstones of the strategy market, as well as an exceptional experience for any self-respecting video game lover.

    Had Reforged been an optional and free graphical update, undersold and understated and a gift to fans, I doubt there would be any backlash. Instead, Blizzard suggested a revolutionary re-imagining of one of gaming’s most popular titles and failed spectacularly to deliver it. Warcraft III: Reforged does not diminish the core experience that made the game great, but its relatively modest improvements are coupled with some missing features and technical issues that make it a disappointment.

    The remaster stays far below its possibilities and makes multiplayer worse than in the original. The single-player campaign is still great.

    Blizzard has truly shot itself in the foot with this one, as they have no doubt upset the core fan base of this amazing title. This remake should have risen from the ashes and helped Blizzard recover its reputation. In reality, it's likely purged the veterans from their fanbase and will be relying on the game's much-loved campaigns and multiplayer mode to bring in newcomers.

    An exceptional RTS let down by a very disappointing remaster.

    WarCraft 3 definitely deserves better. The “revamped re-imagination" is disappointing.

    There’s nothing in Reforged that keeps me hooked in. I was sad playing it. Sad that it ultimately failed. That there are so many things that could have been done better – boldly and with more polish. [03/2020, p.48]

    This is an absolutely an amazing nostalgia trip for me, unlike WoW classic which immediately bored the crap out of me after 5 minutes.This is an absolutely an amazing nostalgia trip for me, unlike WoW classic which immediately bored the crap out of me after 5 minutes.

    Music is improved, visuals, cinematics, etc. This is exactly what I expected and it was delivered.

    On the 3rd missions in the campaign and already addicted just as I was when the game originally released. You know you have another gem when you can't turn off the game even after mythic/LFR Ny'alotha come out on the same day! Way to go Blizz!!!! Now all we can hope for is Warcraft 4 and a great new storyline. I CANNOT wait to get to the frozen throne expansion already!!!!! Almost 70 missions of single player content and can't wait to try some multiplayer after I'm done with the campaign. This is awesome. NO ONE does RTS like Blizzard.

    STOP BUYING THIS GARBAGE!! I could be really harsh on this game and give it what I want to give it (a 1 out of 10) but I'll be kind because ISTOP BUYING THIS GARBAGE!! I could be really harsh on this game and give it what I want to give it (a 1 out of 10) but I'll be kind because I know they underpaid some outsourced workers to develop this and they did an okay job given what resources I'm sure Blizzard alotted. It doesn't run though, and the only reason this gets a 4/10 is because it used to and I know that Blizzard will want to do as much to save face as they can and ensure it will actually run. It is a half finished product that Blizzard could have made great, but instead ignored and spent as little resources as they possibly could. Even when this game ran, it barely ran, it barely started (5 minutes later when half the players gave up and you had a 2v4 or 1v3). Don't buy this game unless you have so much money that you can throw money onto the street to observe who's first to pick it up. Oops, maybe I will just give it a 0 out of 10 because I'm sick of Blizzard's crap. Expand
