Gamespot Reviews Warcraft III
6:00 AM | Daniel Bogan | Comment on this story

Gamespot has written up a full review of the just-released strategy game, Warcraft III: Reign Of Chaos, dismissing the game as a "role playing strategy" and instead seeing it as a pure sequel to Warcraft II with extra niceties.

Make no mistake: Warcraft III is a real-time strategy game. Originally announced back in 1999 as a hybrid strategic role-playing game, over the course of its development, Warcraft III shed many of its role-playing pretensions and became what by all means is a true sequel to its predecessor. The game relies on many of the real-time strategy conventions you're probably familiar with by now. The goal of a typical skirmish is to start gathering resources (gold and wood), build up a base, build up a force of various units, and use that force to destroy the enemy's base and to repel any attacks against your position.
The reviewer goes on to give the game 9.3 out of 10, and has included a swag of nice screenshots to salivate over while you wait for your copy in the mail.

Be on the lookout for IMG's very own review soon. WarCraft III: Reign of Chaos is available for purchase from the IMG Store.
