It has been nearly fifteen years since the war between the orcs and humans ended. An uneasy peace settled over the land while, for years, the drums of war were silent. Yet the kingdoms of men grew complacent in their victory - and slowly, the defeated orcish clans regrouped under the banner of a new visionary leader. Now a darker shadow has fallen over the world, threatening to extinguish all life - all hope. The drums of war play upon the winds once again - rising urgently towards the inevitable hour when the skies will rain fire - and the world will tremble before the coming of the Burning Legion. The Day of Judgment has come...

Solid game that was a nice return to the Warcraft universe. Multiplayer left some balance to be desired.

Regardless of whether or not you're a hardcore fan of strategy games, WarCraft III's compelling story and excellent balance makes it a must-own.

A fantastic story and characters, loads of style, and top-notch production value.

These issues aside, Warcraft III is one of those titles that are an instant classic. Many critics and writers questioned the four and a half long development cycle for this game, wondering if there was anyway that the game would live up to the originality and solid play of the first two titles. Not only is Warcraft III a worthy successor, it improves upon the series. Blizzard has always held to the credo that the game won’t be released until its ready and meets their high standards of quality. Other game companies would do well to follow their example, because they have never let the gamer down. Like I said before, do whatever you can to get your hands on this game. Your computer will definitely thank you for it, just as I’m sure you’ll thank Blizzard for making this game.

So does WarCraft III live up to our high expectations? Yes. It's not perfect by any means - the food limit and unit selection limit will drive you nuts after a bit of play, and the "Upkeep" tax on your gold mines when you have more than a certain number of units is frankly daft, since it encourages you to build as few units as you possibly can. It is a worthy update to the series though, and makes the transition to 3D with flying colours while adding some interesting new gameplay elements to an already hugely enjoyable title. No fan of real-time strategy should be without WarCraft III, and many RPG fans will want to take a peek as well.

The delays to the game may have been a bit hard to bear at times, but I think that almost everyone will be happy to see the results the extra hours brought to bear. There's nothing less than a sterling real-time strategy game here that fans of fantasy and fiction will enjoy. Now feel free to start speculating on what the inevitable expansion will bring.

This game is so much fun to play, and does everything so well that it is totally almost impossible to put it down... WarCraft III is the pinnacle of the recent Real Time Strategy Genre and sets the bar for how all RTS games should be developed.

Blizzard remains firmly on top of the RTS game with Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. Fans who have waited all these years will agree that it was well worth the wait. Enhanced gameplay combined with a great story and fantastic CG will give even the most peaceful elf a new reason to go to war.
100

The finest RTS game I have ever played.
85

Certainly WarCraft III has improved exponentially from its predecessor in the areas of story and character development, which in turn results in a game of massive size that, in terms of sheer gameplay hours, will prove as fulfilling as any RPG.
