Warcraft III restera dans la Ram de l'histoire informatique pour un sacré moment, les défauts du soft sont tellement minimes et la qualité tellement omniprésente que Warcraft III est un hit à l'état pur. Passionés de la saga : Foncez, amateur de jeu de stratégie: Foncez, petit ou grand vous ne serez pas déçus. Pour finir je laisse ma place à un vieil ami: Zog Zog.
However, I feel that $80 is worth the quality and time that went into Warcraft 3. Since my copy arrived on launch day I couldn't pull myself away, even to write this review. Blizzard has done it again with perhaps an early Game of the Year candidate, and I only wish that I could give this game 6 Gems instead of the normal 5, because it deserves it.

Having said that, Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos might be remembered as the greatest real-time strategy game, ever. When it comes to this type of game, no one does it better than Blizzard and Blizzard has never done it better than this. From the lush, mouth-watering graphics to the engrossing, varied single player game to the limitless, robust multiplayer to the powerful, Mac-friendly editor... hell, even the manual is well-made. It's hard to cite so much as a single real drawback, even when I try. The game stays true to its roots but manages to overcome the problems that have plagued Warcraft-style games for ages. There's a huge back-story if you want to immerse yourself in the Warcraft universe, but it's just as friendly to those who want to leap in without doing a lot of reading.

WarCraft III is a finely tuned game and an amazing example of the importance of polish and presentation. Everything in the box, from the game itself to the terrific manual that has tons of info plus loads of extra background story for each of the races, is top notch and adds to the overall luster of the game.

Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos is an absolute must-have. A natural evolution of the real-time strategy genre, Warcraft III adds some new technologies and embellishments to a proven formula, and the result is an exciting and challenging game.

However, I will make an appeal to non-RTS fans to at least give WC3 a whirl. And don’t harp to me about a demo either – I’m sure you know ten friends that camped out in front of a nearby store to buy a copy. While WC3 isn’t nerfed, it is streamlined and has simplified some of its processes to make it more accessible to the casual as well as the hardcore gamer, including the formations, the Autocast feature, and the smaller Tech Trees and Food Caps. To be honest, I’m not a hardcore RTS fan myself. StarCraft only appealed to me mainly because all my PC friends (coughgetarealcomputercough) were playing it and insisted that I play it with them or die horribly. However, after gaming a while with WC3, I think it’s safe to say that it appeals to me greatly and just may convert me over to the ranks of RTS fan.
Mac Addict (Dec, 2002)
WarCraft doesn't take itself too seriously, which is a refreshing change—and a lot of fun—in this conquer-the-world genre. It might not be the breakthrough video-game experience everyone was hoping for, but WarCraft III is a rewarding and addictive challenge.

WarCraft III is a terrific game that will be played for years to come because of the many tactics and strategies that are possible and because the multiplayer capability is wonderful. The editor is powerful, and I'm sure there will be many great maps made that will use it to its full advantage. Whether you're a veteran at real-time strategy games or are just wanting to see what the genre is like, WarCraft III is the game to buy and play.
