Warcraft 3 is a great strategy game, it continues the Warcraft series very well and its an enjoyable strategy game. I'd reccomend it if you enjoyed other blizzard games, or wanted to know the history in world of warcraft. This also has an online version where you can go and play against other people, though I suggest waiting until you complete the campaign so you know how to play each race fairly well. Includes 2002 Game of the Year, Warcraft III: The Reign of Chaos. Includes Warcraft III Expansion: The Frozen Throne

Contains strategy guides from Brady Games for both titles to help players dominate the battlefield. Perfect for entering the epic war between the races of Azeroth and the demonic Burning Legion

Defend the world of Azeroth from the demonic Burning Legion and the dark forces of the Undead Lich King in the ultimate WarCraft III collection. In addition to full versions of WC III: Reign of Chaos and WC III: The Frozen Throne, this massive box set contains two official strategy guides from Brady Games to aid you in your quest.

It has been nearly fifteen years since the war between the orcs and humans ended. An uneasy peace settled over the land while, for years, the drums of war were silent. Yet the kingdoms of men grew complacent in their victory - and slowly, the defeated orcish clans regrouped under the banner of a new visionary leader.

Now a darker shadow has fallen over the world, threatening to extinguish all life - all hope. The drums of war play upon the winds once again - rising urgently towards the inevitable hour when the skies will rain fire - and the world will tremble before the coming of the Burning Legion.

The Day of Judgment has come...

Game Features:

Four Unique Races armed with distinctive units, magical abilities, and weapons of war.

Two nations of warriors new to the Warcraft Universe; the plague-ridden Undead and the mysterious Night Elves.

Brilliant three-dimensional graphics powered by Blizzard's own 3D engine, which offers support for multiple resolutions and customizable detail settings.

Build Legendary Heroes, whose ability to advance in levels and learn new spells and abilities makes them the core of each race's force.

Heroes can use Special Items and Equipment dropped by Neutral Units or purchased from Neutral Buildings to turn the tide of battle.

Neutral Buildings, accessible by each race's Heroes, offer a variety of wondrous magic items and fearsome mercenary units--all for a price.

Neutral Units inhabit the world of Azeroth and impede the unwarry but yield precious treasure when defeated in combat.

Full Multiplayer support, including Internet play over Battle.net®.

New Multiplayer Features including shared unit control and resource trading between players.

Improved Battle.net Features including improved ladder support.

Advanced World Editor design tools allow players to create their own maps and customize many aspects of the game.

Undead: The horrifying Undead army called the Scourge consists of thousands of walking corpses, disembodied spirits, damned mortal men and insidious extra-dimensional entities

Night Elf: The reclusive Night Elves were the first race to awaken in the World of Warcraft. These shadowy, immortal beings were the first to study magic and let it loose throughout the world nearly ten thousand years before Warcraft One

Human: Relatively speaking, Humanity is one of the world's youngest races. Unlike Elves and Dwarves, Humans live brief lives full of change and strife.

Orc: The savage, green-skinned Orcs are one of the most prolific races of the Warcraft world. Although few are aware of it, the Orcs once cultivated a noble, Shamanistic society on the world of Draenor.
