The Greatest Battle Is Yet To Come.....

Revisit the war-torn world of Azeroth. Several months have passed since Archimonde and the Burning Legion were defeated at the battle of Mount Hyjal, yet a new threat has arisen throughout the land. The evil Lich King Ner'zhul has been imprisoned inside the Icecrown glacier, deep within the arctic continent of Northrend. Although the former Orc Shaman lacks physical form, his soul lives on, forever seeking a means to escape his icy prison.

As the saga continues, it is revealed that both the Night Elf renegade, Illidan, and the traitorous Death Knight, Arthas, seek the Icecrown glacier and the mysterious powers found inside. While it is uncertain as to what is being sought inside the icy tomb, players must traverse uncharted lands and battle treacherous new enemies to uncover the schemes of these nefarious beings, and save all of Azeroth from the forces of darkness.

Reviews:

Games Domain by Giles Bird

"After having sold approximately ten jillion copies, and that's just in Korea, it's hardly surprising that Blizzard is doing an expansion pack for Warcraft III. What is surprising is how much work they've put into it when they could have just thrown a few new scenarios in a box. Come to think of it, these are the guys whose expansion packs for Starcraft and Diablo II were like whole new games, so maybe it's not that surprising."

"The centrepiece of Frozen Throne is the new campaign, which is easily as long as the one packaged with the original. The early missions for each race introduce the new units and heroes, but then they start playing around with some really neat scripting and gameplay twists. There are missions here that play unlike anything you've ever seen in an RTS, although some of them are difficult enough to tempt you to quit in frustration. Fortunately, you can always restart a mission on an easier setting."

"The icing on the whole big RTS cake is a set of new battle.net options for clan support and ladder tournaments. It's hard to imagine how anyone who plays Warcraft III online can get by without having Frozen Throne. We at Games Domain, in the immortal words of Mr. T, pity the fools."
