Summary

A worthy addition to Warcraft III

The Good

Blizzard did a great job in creating this add on. The graphics were impressive. The additional field units added a depth of strategy. The music was pleasant without too much repetition. The continuing story was entertaining and relevant to the levels you ended up playing.

I really like the increased cap of 100. It added to the mayhem you can cause.

The Bad

The wicked evil micro-management that came with the new Hero characters. If you didn't heal and curse on a second by second frame, you'd get munched and crushed without putting up a fight. The grouping mechanism is still awkward and the path finding AI is a little scary at times.

And the wide open ending that left you wondering what in the heck will happen next?

The Bottom Line

If you loved Reign of Chaos, then don't hesitate to get this addition. You'll not regret it.
