Summary

Could have been stand-alone

The Good

Exactly the same good as Warcraft 3; the gameplay still works fine, the soundtrack is awesome and the story and the way the game tells it are still great. I can't say there is any improvement though.

This expansion is just as long as Warcraft 3: Reigns of Chaos was and could have been sold to me as a full-priced game. I won't complaint about it though :)

The Bad

Still the same flaws as Warcraft 3, Blizzard is rather consistent it seems.

The Bonus campaign just keeps dragging on and it's way too easy. It does end with a great climax, but everything leading up to it is just boring and never seems to end.

The Bottom Line

This review is a bit shorter than what I usually write, but that is because you can't really say anything about this expansion. It's still exactly the same good with the same flaws as it's predecessor, but now at a much lower price. It's still a recommendation for fans of the Warcraft lore and for strategy-game fans, but people who aren't either of those this game will prove to be a bit boring and a little too hard.
