An incredible expansion which expands on everything the game has done in the past for me notably one of the best things that were added is the increased map size of 480x480, later on in 1.29 (the best version of this game) has also increased player count of 24 players in a single map as far as I am aware this one of very few RTS games that allow 24 players playing simultaneously in the same map combined with the map editor and amount of maps readily available it is simply an astonishing RTS game which I find very hard to stop playing even till this day.
The standard that expansion packs for RTS titles will be judged by. Not only did it advance and improve the story of Warcraft, but it also introduced an innovative campaign for one of gaming’s most respected factions. What’s more, the sheer number of enhancements makes each mission enjoyable to play from the first building placed to the last enemy destroyed.
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.
Better than RoC by a slight margin.
Still a Blizzard """""""RTS""""""" with almost no strategising and tons of clicking all and micromanaging. Still not fun to play, or extremely little.
Still Arthas is a terrible character.
But despite the core problems of RoC being here, I think Frozen Throne did a far better job than its original game. Characters are usually better by a slight margin, level design is also slightly better, it's not a big improvement but it's an improvement nonetheless. Everything else that could be said about FT I already said about RoC.
The game adds some great things (raised pop cap, new units, new and neutral heroes), great story and three and a half very good campaigns. Then the dungeon missions of undead campaign come along, which are not that bad except the last one where Arthas is level two and he needs to run trough the dungeon and fight a really strong monster and his minions (Anub'arak shows halfway trough, but it's still kind of unfair), the one mission is cool tho. And of course a "non bonus" orc campaign would've been cool (although noting much happens with the orcs in the story). All in all Frozen Throne is a decent expansion.
It's kind of unfair to give a bad review to this game, but I think people should use Undead and play around 50 mathcs then come back to re-review this game. Blizzard's patch can't balanced this game well and always created more problems. Most of my friends drop the normal game and turn to play DoTA. For me, these 3 points are for Campaign and The Founding of Durotar and Custom Maps. I wish in some future patch that Blizzard can just take Undead out of this game.
SummaryThe Frozen Throne provides gamers with a vast new chapter in the epic Warcraft saga. In the single-player campaign, players revisit the war-torn world of Azeroth. Several months have passed since Archimonde and the Burning Legion were defeated at the battle of Mount Hyjal, yet a new threat has arisen throughout the land. One new Hero per...
