It's such a good solution to make a game have a slight cartoon style, this way it will always be visually appealing, like wind waker.
one of my favorite rts along with starcraft 1 and 2 and dawn of war 1 espicially the dark crusade expansion pack
Man, not only do I miss Kasavin but also the old gamespot scoring system...the arbitrary scores they come up with these days seem somewhat random without a basis for each of the core components of the game including its graphics, sound, gameplay, value etc...
I just bought this today because my work computer is finally good enough to run it, and I'll have something to do when I travel out of town. Blizzard can keep up its long development lifecycles if quality is always this good.
Hey wiiwiiwii22, Greg Kasavin was the best I agree, and also a guy called Jeff Gertsmann. Those two were the best, most exciting reviewers. Greg Kasavin was never fired, he chose to leave himself, to pursue one of his dreams for being a developer, and now he works for the LA studios of EA (Electronics Arts) and helped develop and produce command and conquer 3: tiberium wars and red alert. If you don't believe me you can go check his wikipedia page or search his name on gamespot (i recommend the former, there's more info)
looks grag kasavin smiles and have fun doing ther review...i won that kings of review guy...not the men who did the review of star wars i dont now what..
the best guys of gamespot are and was=greg kasavin,the chinese guy of star wars and the guy who made the review of killzone and starcraft
My brother got this years ago when it first came out, and oddly enough, I'm tempted to buy my own copy now. It's been ages since I've played it, but I always liked it.
i want starcraft 2 but my computer is just way to weak so i guess ill have to get this one instead...
This game was a beast to beat without cheats back when I was 10. The final campaign especially. Yet when I picked it up 7 years later and practiced some, it felt like cakewalk.
It just goes to show how much skill Blizzard have when they can release a game and 8 years down the line people are still playing it and hailing it as the best in it's genre. I'm new to rts, and seeing as this is old enough to be cheap, and amazing enough to be fun I'll certainly be picking it up.
i dont rly play this game as much now cuz i got the frozen throne expansion but i love warcraft 3 best rts ever
this is to williebazerka the only tip i got for u is to be fast rly fast build fast and creep o and use the hot keys and group ur units
I DOWNLOADED THIS FOR 20.00 FROM BLIZZARDS WEBSITE YESTERDAY AND MAN IS THIS A FUN GAME.I HAVENT TRIED ONLINE ONLY SP CAMPAIGN.SINCE I DONT HAVE A MANUAL DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY TIPS TO GET GOOD.
@blooddog28: If your still thinking about it, do it! This game rules, and in my mind is almost equal to starcraft
I love how this game still is immensly popular online 8 years since it's release. That's longivety for ya :D
I am thinking about getting the warcraft battlechest.... is it worth it? i got the diablo battlechest and loved it.
This game is gorgeous, even today. The bright colors, the cheery art style... It's very nice, and detailed despite the blockiness.
@Link-reaper The Heroes in Warcraft III are souped-up units that you build from a special building at your base, such as the Orc's "Altar of Storms." Heroes' attacks are stronger than a regular unit's, and as the Hero fights it gains experience points, like a character in a role-playing game would. Each time it gains a level, a Hero gets a "Hero Point" that can be spent on one of several special abilities, like an area-of-effect attack, or a spirit to summon and have fight by your side. These abilities have to be triggered separately from a regular attack. Also, Heroes can pick up special items off the ground that grant various bonuses, such as a pair of claws that give an attack boost, or a potion that can return health or mana (used to cast spells, again like a role-playing game). These items are stored in the Hero's inventory, which is only six spaces, but they can be removed if you want to swap them for something more useful. As for the review, Greg did superb as always. It's a little irksome that the video quality was iffy, but then again it IS from 2002. This game is a masterpiece.
Fails to mention how freaking amazing the customization is, I didn't even play matches online for this game, I played tags and arenas and all kinds of fun stuff!
@parkurtommo Yeah, I always like games like that. They need a real Wind Waker sequel for Wii U and not just a crappy DS spin-off.
@R3NeGaDeAnGeL Since I recently began to get interested in older RPG and RTS games, I've grown to really like Kasavin. I wish he came back too!
