I probably mentioned this in other posts but I was a WC3 fanatic back in it's hay day (or my highschool years). Had that game installed for about 8 years straight with the disc sitting in the cd tray for probably that entire time, lol.

When this was announced, I immediately pre-ordered it with the deluxe edition or whatever tf it was called.

Now it dropped and I have to say that since being away from the original WC3 for so many years and then firing this up, most of the nostalgia wasn't even there from the get go. The menus are awkward and appear severely limited in what you can customize. They didn't even update the text when you want to change the hotkeys. It still says "beta", I mean cmon, did this even go through QA?

The graphics of the individual units, while they look good, something about them also appears off. Some units look choppy in animation and rather dull compared to what I remembered in the past. The unit portraits also look whack here and lifeless. The voice acting sounds terrible and I can't recall if it's the original or not. Sounds like they tried to update it but it's bad.

The interface is mostly intact of what WC3 was except I'm so used to SC2 unlimited unit selection that I forgot how annoying it can be to select a limited amount of units at a time. Kind of wish they updated that part at this point since now would be the time to improve on what was weak of the original WC3.

Yeah so in short, I'm probably not going to ask for a refund because who knows, maybe Blizzard actually gets their development back involved with this to fix this disaster. Kind of like when Diablo 3 dropped and all hell broke loose with the auction house and real money. However this is truly Blizzard's weakest release I think that I can remember as a game in whole. Diablo 3 was still a decent game if you removed the auction house and forgave the horrible loot drops at that time.
