    I rather liked Tides of Darkness. The graphics are always good and I would have to say exceptional for the time.

    I don't care what anyone says, Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness is better than its predecessor, Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. For me the gameplay was much more entertaining & fun. I thought it had bet...
