    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.

    An inexplicably careless remaster, where none of the changes are unequivocally for the better and the experience is brought down further by numerous bugs and missing features.

    Reforged is just a new way to play the campaign of one of the best games ever made… but that’s pretty much. Blizzard has a lot of work to do to fix this and deliver the remaster the original deserves.

    Blizzard has addressed some of the complaints and criticism hurled its way, and has promised to work on many of these issues. Naturally, one must ask why the game was released in such a state, especially considering the negative attention the company has garnered over the past year with the reveal of Diablo Immortal and the Blizzard/China controversy.

    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.

    I was really looking forward to this game. But it has almost none of the promised features.

    The graphics feel worse than the original, they lack heart and clarity. There is no working ladder, multiple other battle net features are non existent.

    ok
    I have requested a refund because I am so disappointed.

    Un désastre !

    Jouer contre des IA ? Les races ennemies choisies ne sont pas les bonnes.
    Il est très difficile pour nos amis de rejoindre nos parties personnalisées.
    Le tchat global à faire défiler à la main.
    L'IA ? Plus débile que jamais.

    Une interface désuète à souhait, aussi bien en détails qu'en encombrement
    ( 1/3 de l'écran bouffé pour quelques touches de fonctions ... )

    Disparition des serveurs W3 classique pour les joueurs qui ne passeront pas à Reforged.

    22.4Go pour ça ? Vraiment ?

    @ tous les trisomiques qui tenter de contrebalancer une notation

    I sometimes play warcraft 3 before they close servers to do THIS. And now old battle.net is dead... 2002 yerar interfaceergonomygraphic wasI sometimes play warcraft 3 before they close servers to do THIS. And now old battle.net is dead... 2002 yerar interfaceergonomygraphic was better. New interface is amazing! Chat over lobby, all channels in one window including lobby chat. You need scroll down window to check map info... You cant fast change your lobby slot. No clans, old account friend list disappeared. There is nothing to do game better
    Now bugs, you cant join some lobby, you need delete old map to redownload them for join lobby, some maps instantly end on start, some got many graphic bugs, company dont work, some lobby just crash, and this joking ***** when you cant join game and they write *you cant join this lobby, maybe you entered wrong game name* THERE IS NO LINE TO ENTER GAME NAME. And many many many more bugs
    Just WHY they release this, if game not ready dont kill what working at least and take more time... I know many dudes who still play wc3 before they close old battle.net. There still was big community, and now its just *****.
