A couple of days ago I felt the urge to try Warcraft III: The Reign of Chaos again. Having stored my games serial numbers over at Battle.net, I could just download them (Reign of Chaos and Frozen Throne) from there and be up and running in no time. If you have some Blizzard-games in your collection I advice you to do the same. It is very handy if you scratch your optical media, loose the originals or something else happens. It is free and takes only a few minutes to do.
Some RTS games have not (in my opinion) aged very well, but Warcraft III surely plays wonderfully even today. The cartoonish graphics still look cool and not outdated at all. Other RTS with more “realistic” graphics have aged badly in comparison. I was delighted to experience this. Game-play is also fun, responsive, intriguing, just like before. It is safe to say that I will practice a bit with simple skirmishes to re-learn some of the old tricks and then head out on Battle.net for some real action. Looking forward to that.
Anyone else out there enjoying a good round of Warcraft III? Perhaps we could meet on the battlefield some time. 😉
Besides Warcraft I’m in the process of setting up Puppy Arcade on an old laptop. Thanks to The Heretic for the advice concerning this emulation station.
Thanks for reading and have a good evening all! 🙂
