    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

    One of the best RTS out there. The story is incredible, it has a special Rexxar campaign for more RPG fun and a lot of custom game types.

Even though the graphics are old, they were so passionately well made that - overall - the game far exceeds 2020's games especially in terms of intelligent gameplay. Nowadays, video games require that you control a character and move it around by spamming one click and maybe pressing three keyboard buttons. No, no no. This game requires you to control multiple units and be aware of tons of hotkeys in order to multitask efficiently in a timely manner and force defeat upon the enemy through methodology, consistency and strategy.

I was in love with all the mini games the community had made and its all we played me and my friends and to this day we still play STD and castle fight and custom hero survival. Also the campaign is extremely fun if its your first time but i don't see myself replying it. Expand
