In the war between the humans of the kingdom of Azeroth, and the orcs from the world rift, the humans succeeded in killing the wizard who brought the orcs to their world. But they could not stop the Horde. In the end, their king was killed, and it fell to Lothar, knight of Azeroth, to take what remained of the people of Azeroth across the Great Sea, to the lands of Lordaeron. They brought with them tales of horror, relating what the monstrous Orcish Horde has done to their homeland. But the Horde would not be content with it's victory over the humans. Pillaging the land, they build great ships, and followed after the humans. Hearing of this, the king of Lordaeron called the races of the world of Azeroth to his side; the dwarves of Khaz Modan, the elves of Quel'thalas, and the armies of Lordaeron. In desperation, they make ready for all out war on the Horde, who approach on the tides of darkness. Written by Anonymous

A timeless Blizzard Classic
8 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos. This is where it all began. I remember playing Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness more than 10 years ago and I have one thing to say: what a Classic.

While Blizzard is well-known today and continues to produce quality products, it was with Warcraft 1 and 2 that they created their mark on the gaming world as masters of real-time strategy as well as story-telling.

Today I still occasionally load Warcraft 2 and tweak my system to run it properly. And I am still amazed at the high standard and level of presentation, graphics and sound (for its time). The same can be said for most of Blizzard's games, but I have fond memories of Warcraft.

The cinematics are great, gameplay is solid and it is as addictive as any other Blizzard title. If you have played Warcraft 2, I am sure that you have the same nostalgic feelings as I do. And if you haven't, forget about today's standard of games and pick up your pixelated sword and axe for some great fun.
