Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne is a real-time strategy videogame developed by Blizzard Entertainment, and the expansion pack of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. This pack offers new single-player campaigns for the game as well as new units, buildings and heroes for each race. Note that you will need to have the main game installed to play this expansion.
This strategic game adds depth to the already complex storyline, and also includes several improvements and new features, such as the ability to group with your fellow mates in “guilds” ranging from 10 to 100 people, including a guild leader. These guilds are classified in different online modes using Battle.net.
Hail to the King
After defeating Archimonde in the battle for Mount Hyjal, a new threat has arisen to put Azeroth in danger. The first campaign will take you with the Nagas—snake-like creatures that used to be Night Elves. Illidan Stormrage pledges allegiance to the Nagas after escaping from his prison and obtains an artifact of great power: The Eye of Sargeras. His old warden, Maiev Shadowsong, will have to pursue Illidan and put him behind bars again. The second campaign deals with the Blood Elves (remainder of the High Elves), led by Kael’Thas. They belong to the human alliance, but human marshal Lord Garithos despises them. After finding that Kael’Thas received help from the Nagas in the past, he imprisons the Blood Elves. Then, Kael and his people are set free by Lady Vashj, the leader of the Nagas, so they join Illidan’s side. In the third campaign, the undead are divided into three factions. We follow Arthas, leader of one of the factions, in his path to become the New Lich King in Northrend. All these little stories serve to prepare the player for a huge clash between two big characters: Arthas and Illidan. There is also a bonus campaign, similar to Diablo’s playstyle, which features a Beastmaster called Rexxar as he plans a strategy to develop and defend a new home for the orcs, the land of Durotar.
Gameplay mechanics are still the same as in the original title, but there are new units and heroes. Humans will get new Blood Elf units: the spell breaker and the dragonhawk rider, and a new hero: the Blood mage. Orcs will get the troll bat-rider and the spirit walker, and the shadow hunter as a hero. The undead can now recruit Destroyers and Obsidian statues, as well as the mighty Crypt Lord. Last but not least, Night Elves have the mountain giants and the faerie dragon as new units and the Warden as a hero.

Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne reigns again over Azeroth land

After beating the first Warcraft III: The Reign of Chaos, the story plot gets with a big cliffhanger about Arthas’ future. In this expansion all about the story is solved, even about the Orcs that are no longer in the human’s world. Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne includes the same heroes for all races on the multiplayer game mode besides new champions. The new units in this expansion give a new way for playing with the different factions, solving some problems of balancing between the sides. About the graphics the game is the same, without many changes, which makes the game similar in essence to the first part.
Strategy games for PC have been very popular from the beginning, or at least as long as I can recall. This expansion for Warcraft III enhances the good aspects of the original title, but if you are looking for some great innovations this is not the game you want. The gameplay remains the same, creating buildings and new troops and organizing your own base for fighting against the other players and computer. To conclude this review, this expansion pack is good and enhances some aspects of the original title giving more variety.
- New champions and more soldiers
- More upgrades have been included
- Water units like ships are now usable
- Some parts of the game remains the very same

Blizzard Entertainment developed Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne, the official expansion title to Reign of Chaos. The best part of the game is the story that everybody loves, including me. Following the events of the previous game, after the alliance between Elves, Orcs and Humans defeated the Burning Legion and destroyed the evil Archimonde for them to be able to protect their world called Azeroth, the heroes must rise again to defend Azeroth from a new powerful threat.
The Frozen Throne provides new features like new maps and locations, as well as new characters with unique powers that would be helpful for the campaign. There are single-player and multiplayer modes in the game. I was also able to download additional modifications that enhanced my gaming experience.
In terms of gameplay, The Frozen Throne still has the same concept just like its previous version. Heroes can build items that could improve their skills. I also found new features like the improved attack and defense mechanism for characters and additional skills that would be useful for team play for them to be victorious are all present in the game.
With new features and characters added in this another installment to the Warcraft series, I highly recommend Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne for PC fantasy and strategy game fans like me.
- There are exciting new characters
- Improved graphics of the game
- The game is very entertaining
- Great story behind the game
- Some items are hard to find
- Redundant dialog of the characters
- There are confusing portions of the official guide
- Game is quite difficult for beginners
