This expansion pack is only good for the hardcore fans. The rest might find it just expands the migraine!

Much the same in everyway as in Tides of Darkness, the only improvements are slightly different maps to start with followed by more of the same as last time. Another aspect is the additional hero units which although good don't seem to provide much new to a game which is starting to slowly give me a headache.

The storylines are new and I am sure any hardcore fan would want to play this. But after a fair bit of play and realising how hard this expansion really is I started to play with godmode on. Although I did this very little in the ToD I am having to godmode a lot in BDP because I find it that dam hard in the latter missions. One or two I don't need too, because I am able to find the right tactic to defeat the A.I. but most of the time I can't be bothered.

I think this Warcraft II expansion much like the original Orcs vs Humans, which I didn't really like too much seemed to drone on and get on my nerves. The music and the sounds haven't changed and for me nothing else much has either.
