Playing Warcraft III

Posted by JCGamer (655 posts) -

So after seeing the Blizzcon footage, I was craving for a Blizzard game.  I was really hyped for the Diablo III footage, so naturally I decided to get the Warcraft III battlechest.  I'm a story guy and I knew that DII didn't have that much of a story, but WCIII did.  So WCIII it was.  Man, this game is great.  And it holds up, even today.  Now I'm not a WoW player, but I did play the original WC and WCII back in the day.  And back in gradschool, I did play WCIII, but didn't get too far.  So I came back at it ready for some cool story/RTS action.   Like all the Blizzard games, the production values are great.  The story is engaging, and the characters are interesting and fun to play/interact with.  The best part about this game is the fact that the missions are so varied.  One of the reason's I stopped playing RTS's was that I just didn't like building bases, making a huge army and then killing the other forces.  While this games has a fair share of that, it wraps it in a shell that makes the game seem varied, and fresh.  For anyone out there who hasn't played this game, man get it.

I still play custom games every once and a while, but man, I am horrible at the multi player.

Definitely a great buy for anyone who hasnt played it yet, one of the best RTS there is. I did a similar thing, speaking of Blizzcon, after all the SC2 shit from it I went and got the SC Battlechest again. I still had both SC and Brood War a long time ago here somewhere but had no idea where the hell they went, so I just picked it back up about a week or so ago. 
 
Especially since recently everything Ive been playing is getting to the point of feeling extremely stale and old, going back and playing great games from years ago is a great idea. Glad you're enjoying it!
