  WarCraft III: Frozen Throne
Words from the company:
Following in the tradition of previous Blizzard expansion sets, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne provides gamers with a vast new chapter in the epic Warcraft saga. In the single-player campaign, players revisit the war-torn world of Azeroth. Several months have passed since Archimonde and the Burning Legion were defeated at the battle of Mount Hyjal, yet a new threat has arisen throughout the land.

The evil Lich King Ner'zhul has been imprisoned inside the Icecrown glacier, deep within the arctic continent of Northrend. Although the former Orc Shaman lacks physical form, his soul lives on, forever seeking a means to escape his icy prison. As the saga continues, it is revealed that both the Night Elf renegade, Illidan, and the traitorous Death Knight, Arthas, seek the Icecrown glacier and the mysterious powers found inside. While it is uncertain as to what is being sought inside the icy tomb, players must traverse uncharted lands and battle treacherous new enemies to uncover the schemes of these nefarious beings, and save all of Azeroth from the forces of darkness.

The Review:
This new expansion set to the WarCraft series is an incredible new saga for gamers to enjoy. If Blizzard keeps this up, other companies will be hard pressed to do better. The story lines and characters are imaginative, creative and new. The whole game possesses an enchanting and mesmerizing quality that is hard to find in most adventure games of this sort.

As usual the graphics are out of this world, and the intros are like watching a fantastic sci-fi movie. When you start this game, you get sucked into the story and can simply stop playing just because it is supper time or because it is four o’clock in the morning and you have to go to work the next day.

As in previous WarCrafts, you have missions and you have special tasks that you have to carry out and it is not a matter of simply rushing in and killing everything that moves because it does require a bit of strategy and saving you game often in case thing don’t go your way. (I learned that early on) Every time you restart a mission, you get better at it because you know roughly where to find the bad guys and what it requires to kill them and so this makes for days and weeks of great fun.

I find that this game is another that I will be playing till the sun sets and maybe even rises as I take a break from it. I recommend this expansion set to all WarCraft fans.
