Great story, but too easy
21 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

The story in WarCraft: Orcs & Humans is a very good story. It is about the war when The Orcish Hordes came through a dimensional rift and started ravaging the land of Azeroth.

In the game you can choose if you want to play orcs or humans in their fight against each other. The story is well told through mission briefings and by reading the manual where there is a lot of background story.

The graphics are quite bad compared to today's standards, but that doesn't really harm game play. There are some things that could've been better (like 2-button support), but you get used to it. My only real complaint is that the game is too easy/not adequately balanced. You can beat the game by building loads of one single unit, that gets a bit boring after a while and not especially challenging.
