Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos is the fourth game installment of the Warcraft story (including the expansion to Warcraft II, Beyond the Dark Portal). The Orcs and Humans continue to fight each other at their own peril according to a mysterious prophet.
The game perpetuates Blizzard's high reputation in real-time strategy games. You cut down trees, mine for gold, and build buildings so that you can train troops. It is designed with a focus on heroes; characters with special abilities that are tougher than the average unit. It is no longer limited to Orcs and Humans. Now there are also Night-Elves and the Undead. Each race has unique units and strategies.
Warcraft III uses a full 3D engine and the graphics certainly live up to Blizzard's reputation. The cinematics have an uncanny realism. Although the characters still look a little cartoony, their expressions and movements are very organic, and the rest of the cinematics could possibly be mistaken for film footage.
