If you enjoy the occasional RTS like I do you might enjoy Warcraft III. If you're also a fan of warcraft lore, books, or World of Warcraft, you'll definitely love it. It plays like any other RTS but with warcraft characters and follows lore from the Warcraft world. I've played both Warcraft III and the expansion Frozen Throne and both are fun and immersive.

Definite thumbs up.

In my opinion, this game is definitly a Game of the Year back in 2002 or 2003. This game is like the good old Starcraft; simple, quirky and FUN!!! This game is very easy to learn and not complicated unlike Blitzkrieg, Medieval, or Rise of Nations and it can be mastered within a month if you are already familiar with the Blizzard games.
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!!!!!

Okay I gave this game 5 stars to make you all happy, so be happy and smile. I recently started playing like, let me remember, ahhh yes, 2 days ago! StarCraft I've been playing for years. This is the review that compares what some people acclaim to be that StarCraft BW is better than WarCraft3, even though warcraft has all the graphics, etc. Please note that there will be disagreements between those of you about what I'm going to say, but its simply my opinion and what I think, so stick with me here.
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.

This review is about the awsome world editor. If you what to stop kicking your opponts aroud when you're goten really good take a break from the game and check out the world editor. Alough it's hard to use at frist when you know how to do just the basics you can make awsome maps. The tiggers can be had to use but, like you might have lerned in school ever cause has a effect. This is what the tirggers are like cause and effect. If you stopped to think there are condishtions with cause and effect. take this you trip on a rock in the grass it's a soft landing because you land on the grass or you tirp on a rock and fall on the road it's a hard landing because you land on the road. It's kinda like that. After you leaarn the basics you can even start making cinamatics.(you can make anything as good a Blizzard does though)With the object editor you can change almost any units and/or make new units. If you think you're really good make a campain. But if you just like to makes maps go ahead. When you finish a map host it on Battle.Net(if you can)

Simply put, this's one of the best strategy games out there. It's also pretty descent as RPGs go, though the interface is still decidedly strategy, so it does tend to lack a bit of rpgishness that hardcore rpg'ers may expect from it.
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.
