Story is a very important part of the Warcraft universe. Warcraft 3 picks up the story many years after the Second War. The spirit of Orcs was almost completely destroyed and humanity is enjoying the era of peace. However, a new threat emerged on the eastern outskirts of Lordaeron. Plague wiped out many villages and people who were killed by it, turned into zombies. The young prince Arthas who was currently fighting with orcs, decided to investigate the matter. The campaign of the Reign of Chaos is taking you on a fantastic journey where you are going to play as Humans in the campaign known as
The Scourge of the Lordaeron, Undeads (also known as the Scourge) in the Legacy of the Damned, Orcs in The Invasion on Kalimdor and as Night Elves in the Eternity's End. Warcraft 3 in general is a huge step forward in comparison to the previous installment. Not only you have four playable races each with different units and traits but also heroes were created. Powerful characters, able to dispatch entire armies by themselves. The Frozen Throne adds new campaigns and makes the game bigger, better and much more playable.
Warcraft 3 is filled with interesting characters. Starting with the troubled young prince Arthas who is slowly taken over by the lust for revenge. Then there is Thrall, the Warchief of the orcish horde who wants to protect his people from the demon course.
Then there is Furion, a very old and wise druid of the night elves who strives for peace of all races. Not to mention Grom Hellscream a very brutal orc who tries his best to overcome the strong grasp of his dark past. You are going to love these characters.
It should not be a surprise but Warcraft 3 is the best among the three games from the series. It is very popular among players even today. The overall score of the game is 9 out of 10 in major of the critics websites.
