Definite thumbs up.
Requirements, like Blitzkrieg, is no problem. You can enjoy a single player with a Celeron 900mhz, 256mb ram, GeForce 2 MX400 (I have tried it on this PC) while the multiplayer needs a better rig such as Athlon XP 2000+, 512mb ram, GeForce 4 MX440, and at least a Cable or DSL (I have also tried on this PC) to play without any lags or any slowdowns. But speaking of lags, lags IS a big problem on Battle.net. Even though you have a good rig and a broadband, the opponent or an ally of yours might have the worst PC that you can ever think of but this is not very common.
Multiplayer, is simply the best feature in this game. You can play many mods (you already know what those are) and play the multiplayer game itself. But more people plays mods and it's a good thing. Like myself, I like the original RTS multiplayer games but some might like mods better which gives more choices for people and raises the replay value.
Finally, one word, a must have. Sorry, I meant three. Having to include a Game of the Year and its expansion, this Battle Chest is a must own. This game is one of the best that you can ever wish for but if you do not agree with me then you probably have never played the game before. (To make it simple, just think of it as Starcraft with more maps, different units, and better graphics)
P.S. But if you did played the game before and you don't agree wth me, you are out of your MIND!!!!!
Even though WarCraft 3 is new and contains really good graphics and game play. What sets its gameplay slightly below StarCraft, for what I've seen as in experience in playing, is the fact that people like things to be simple. The heros in WC3 are nice but the thing about it is that it complicates game play, where you have to think about not just building and upgrading men, but which moves to give the hero, when to use it, lvl up points going where, and which hero will be more useful in the long run. Where else over at starcraft bw, you just simply have to upgrade men, build them, and use strategy. Ignore defense, etc, as both games need them.
Another reason why I believe starcraft is thought to be a better game is because of the numbers of men you can get. Players just like to throw an army at another person, its just the way it is. I mean I'm probably not saying it in the best way possible but I hope you get my point. People like having a huge army to throw at their apponents. Its more.....thrilling? Exciting? Shrug.
Oh yeah, okay this is what I think, after playing WarCraft 3: Reign Of Terror, I noticed one thing. Even though I haven't played it long, so I'm not sure if my analysis is wholesomely accurate, but its hard to distinquish one type of men from another.Read more ›
Overall, it's really a great blend. The expansion re-wrote the entire game and made it balanced and worth playing, removing most of the flaws from before. The strategy guides included are somewhat helpful for single player missions, but really, blizzard's own site gives way more accurate, up to date, and full information. Relying solely upon the strategy guides is a mistake, but it's not a bad idea to take a look at them either.
Many people are still sure that starcraft is the better game. It's very much so possible. The battlechest does alot of things right that starcraft missed, but somehow looses a bit of that "perfect" feeling somewheres. It's hard to figure out where though.
The plot is good, the graphics are nice, while keeping low enough that most people can play the game without any computer upgrades. The voice acting isn't bad, but could be a little better. (Which's true for about all games except maybe soul reaver 2 so no big deal) Everything about the game is top notch, and it's definately one of the best games yeu can get. If yeu're looking for the best buy for yeur money, and haven't tried warcraft 3 at all yet, but like either RPGs or strategy games, grab this now. It's really worth it.
The flaw: The expansion part of this game insists way too heavily upon 'rushing'. Very fast attacks at the start of the game. The official online play is somewhat good for new players, trying to keep skill levels seperate, but it really doesn't work so well. If yeu're new, expect a hard game online. Don't bother playing online until yeu can beat the computer players in a skirmish.
