The Best Possible Expansion Pack for Real-time Strategy MMORPG Games

By Maria Bernabe

On Friday, May 9, 2014

This expansion pack is a must try for any Warcraft fanatic. It includes some new upgrades, units, and cool heroes to make the game look new once more. Aside from the new cool heroes and units, the expansion pack brings more balance to the Warcraft III game play. If you like Warcraft, you will surely enjoy this expansion pack.

This version of W3 is an exciting expansion version that is equally remarkable to be played both on Windows and Mac. Adding to the real depth of the original game, Blizzard Entertainment made the game better by reintroducing sea creatures, queuing upgrades, extending its script system, and adding multiplayer mode.

Warcraft III is one of the most exciting RTS games of all time. The Frozen Throne expansion continues the story of Arthas as he rises as the Lich King and I have to say that playing this game will surely lessen your time to sleep. I will assure you it is worth it!

Pros

  • More heroes have been added
  • It features new brilliant cinematics

Cons

  • The W3: Reign of Chaos must be installed first

One of the Best Real-Time Strategy Games That Was Ever Developed

By Isay Almenanza

The Frozen Throne is a must have if you are a Warcraft fanatic like me. It adds sufficient new units, upgrades, and even heroes to make this game appear even better once more. Besides, a new campaign is added on this game that continues the storyline where Reign of Chaos left off.

I personally like the original Warcraft III, but I am also enjoying this expansion set, too. Alongside the same outline as other Blizzard expansions, they did an exceptional work keeping the storyline progressing and presenting new challenges. This game is superb, combining gameplay with online gaming system and an outstanding map.

Warcraft is one of the top real-time strategy PC games today. This expansion game is very fun and thrilling. If you want to play online, Frozen Throne is the game you need. The graphic quality is fine and I also the love the depth this game offers; it is quite simple but certainly challenging. This is how expansion game should be like.

Pros

  • It has many new features
  • It has an excellent gameplay

Cons

  • Not much improvement with the graphics

Create strategies and achieve your victory in this exciting Strategy Game

Blizzard Entertainment developed Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne, the official expansion title to Reign of Chaos. The best part of the game is the story that everybody loves, including me. Following the events of the previous game, after the alliance between Elves, Orcs and Humans defeated the Burning Legion and destroyed the evil Archimonde for them to be able to protect their world called Azeroth, the heroes must rise again to defend Azeroth from a new powerful threat.

The Frozen Throne provides new features like new maps and locations, as well as new characters with unique powers that would be helpful for the campaign. There are single-player and multiplayer modes in the game. I was also able to download additional modifications that enhanced my gaming experience.

In terms of gameplay, The Frozen Throne still has the same concept just like its previous version. Heroes can build items that could improve their skills. I also found new features like the improved attack and defense mechanism for characters and additional skills that would be useful for team play for them to be victorious are all present in the game.

With new features and characters added in this another installment to the Warcraft series, I highly recommend Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne for PC fantasy and strategy game fans like me.

Pros

  • There are exciting new characters
  • Improved graphics of the game
  • The game is very entertaining
  • Great story behind the game

Cons

  • Some items are hard to find
  • Redundant dialog of the characters
  • There are confusing portions of the official guide
  • Game is quite difficult for beginners

Review

Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne is a real-time strategy videogame developed by Blizzard Entertainment, and the expansion pack of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. This pack offers new single-player campaigns for the game as well as new units, buildings and heroes for each race. Note that you will need to have the main game installed to play this expansion.

This strategic game adds depth to the already complex storyline, and also includes several improvements and new features, such as the ability to group with your fellow mates in “guilds” ranging from 10 to 100 people, including a guild leader. These guilds are classified in different online modes using Battle.net.

Hail to the King

After defeating Archimonde in the battle for Mount Hyjal, a new threat has arisen to put Azeroth in danger. The first campaign will take you with the Nagas—snake-like creatures that used to be Night Elves. Illidan Stormrage pledges allegiance to the Nagas after escaping from his prison and obtains an artifact of great power: The Eye of Sargeras. His old warden, Maiev Shadowsong, will have to pursue Illidan and put him behind bars again. The second campaign deals with the Blood Elves (remainder of the High Elves), led by Kael’Thas. They belong to the human alliance, but human marshal Lord Garithos despises them. After finding that Kael’Thas received help from the Nagas in the past, he imprisons the Blood Elves. Then, Kael and his people are set free by Lady Vashj, the leader of the Nagas, so they join Illidan’s side. In the third campaign, the undead are divided into three factions. We follow Arthas, leader of one of the factions, in his path to become the New Lich King in Northrend. All these little stories serve to prepare the player for a huge clash between two big characters: Arthas and Illidan. There is also a bonus campaign, similar to Diablo’s playstyle, which features a Beastmaster called Rexxar as he plans a strategy to develop and defend a new home for the orcs, the land of Durotar.

Gameplay mechanics are still the same as in the original title, but there are new units and heroes. Humans will get new Blood Elf units: the spell breaker and the dragonhawk rider, and a new hero: the Blood mage. Orcs will get the troll bat-rider and the spirit walker, and the shadow hunter as a hero. The undead can now recruit Destroyers and Obsidian statues, as well as the mighty Crypt Lord. Last but not least, Night Elves have the mountain giants and the faerie dragon as new units and the Warden as a hero.

  • New epic storyline, featuring two of the greatest characters in Warcraft’s universe: Arthas Menethil and Illidan Stromrage
