    The remastered version of Blizzard’s real-time strategy classic Warcraft 3 launched yesterday, and while I’m nowhere near as disappointed by the lack of enhancements and upgrades as the folks over at the official forums, Warcraft 3: Reforged certainly hasn’t impressed me.

    Warcraft 3: Reforged was meant to be a much more ambitious remake of Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne expansion. Blizzard announced the game with features like a revamped user interface and enhanced cutscenes with more dynamic camera angles. There were plans to record more dialogue and tweak the game’s single-player campaigns to bring them more in line with the lore of World of Warcraft, the massively multiplayer follow-up to the RTS series.

    Those plans changed. The UI is almost exactly the same between the old and new versions of the game. Some voice lines have been tweaked—warchief Thrall calls Grom Hellscream by his last name now for some reason—but there aren’t any massive changes. As for the more dynamic in-game cutscenes, check out “The Culling” mission shown off when Reforged was announced in November of 2018.
