I absolutely love WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne. With its epic story, bonus RPG-style campaign, new units, enhanced gameplay, intense multiplayer action, lush graphics and rich audio, TFT is well worth its $29.95 price tag. So as not to make this review an unbearable read, I haven’t even covered every single one of TFT’s new features. So, go out, buy it and unplug the phone, because this game is that good.
WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne is an expansion to the original WarCraft III and adds new heroes, new units, new skills, new maps, and four new campaigns to keep you entertained for hours. For those who are regular players of WarCraft III, you probably did when you pre-ordered The Frozen Throne shortly after it was announced. For the rest of you, you might be wondering what all the fuss is about. "What's so great about an expansion pack?" "Is it worth $35?" "Does it make WarCraft III more fun to play?" For the answer to all of these questions, read on.
As a role-playing strategy game, Warcraft III puts you in charge of heroes of each of the four races that populate the war-torn world of Azeroth. The Frozen Throne has an additional single-player campaign that starts off where the first one ended. You'll also find tons of new objects, units, and other goodies -- including a new level editor for folks who want to make their own mods. And The Frozen Throne offers new depth when you go head-to-head against PC and other Mac gamers online through Blizzard's free Battle.net matchmaking service.

The Frozen Throne has more to it than any Blizzard expansion yet — more than most stand-alone games. Frozen Throne boasts 17 new units, shops, clan support for multiplayer, an improved level editor, and too many little game play improvements to list.
There is now sea technology in the single-player game (Frigates, Battleships, and so on), but online you can only get transport ships from Goblin Shipyards. Still, Frozen Throne has so many enhancements we'd be greedy to complain. If you are passionate about WarCraft and like a little role-playing in your real-time strategy, you'll love Frozen Throne.
