    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.

The new units and heroes are alright, and some of them improve some of their factions short comings. The story is quite moving, but the ending isn't what you'd expect, but if you know Blizzard you would know why its made that way Expand

    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

    The expic single player campaign, the never again reached multuiplayer (beside Fifa, Counterstrike an Starcraft the only game, which was always in the gamepool of the World Cyber Games) in B-NET and tha mass creativity in the custom maps universe inside are way over the top!

    What a pity they ruined it with the REFORGED release (hopefully the fix all the bugs, polish the game and add all the promosed features - I WANT MY 1500 WIN PICS BACK!!!)
