Pro Amazing lore-filled campaign
Warcraft has excellent lore that's well presented in the campaign that continues the story from the first two titles. There are four different races that are also proudly featured in Warcraft 3's campaign, adding more story to the game, while also serving as a tutorial for how to play each race so players can feel more acclimated to their chosen faction in multi-player matches, heightening the overall experience.
Pro Four varied races allow added longevity
In multiplayer and skirmish matches, players get to choose which race they would like to control: Humans, Orcs, Elves, and the Undead Scourge. Each have their own advantages and down-sides, as well as wholly unique play styles, making for gameplay that can change dramatically depending on which race is chosen.
Con Large focus on micromanagement impacts casual play
With the high cost of units and buildings, coupled with upkeep, a tax on gathered gold when players reach a certain unit population, resource management is absolutely required, thus making micromanagement of units a necessity. This high-level play will take new players time in order to learn, as it requires a balancing act; ensuring units are being produced while also allocating funds to research better technologies, at the same time fighting battles and keeping as many units alive as possible.
