First Impressions of Warcraft III
6:00 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story
A few PC gaming sites such asIcrontic and GameSpot have posted their first impressions of Blizzard Entertainment's new strategy game, Warcraft III: Reign Of Chaos.
Here's a section from GameSpot's preview:
Warcraft III's campaign does let you adjust the difficulty, initially between normal and hard settings. If you lose a mission, you gain the option to play the mission in easy mode. Having played all of Blizzard's previous real-time strategy games, though, we found that the default normal difficulty mode is quite easy--at least initially. Warcraft III: Reign Of Chaos will be on the 3rd of July, and will come in hybrid Windows/Macintosh format. You can pre-order it from IMG's store now for $59.99.

Like Starcraft, Warcraft III has a campaign for each of its races: the humans, the orcs, the undead, and the night elves. In addition, the campaigns in Warcraft III, like those in Starcraft, all tie together to form a single epic storyline, told from four different perspectives. Starcraft, however, included the option to play the campaigns in any order, while Warcraft III does not. You do have the option to play or not to play through the two-mission prologue campaign, in which you're taught the basics of Warcraft III's mechanics while guiding the orc war chief Thrall and his green-skinned mobs. Yet since this prologue campaign is indeed part of the game's story, it's worth checking out even for experienced real-time strategy players.
