Conclusion: Each race has three hero units available – the first one is practically free but the next two cost a tidy sum. Heroes can be produced in any order but you can only choose one at a time after you’ve upgraded your HQ. There are many rewards associated with the Heroes and most times can turn the tide of battle very quickly. In a nod to RPG’s, the Hero units can gain experience points, confer combat and defensive bonuses, and cast spells (or perform special abilities).

Excerpt: Despite my enthusiasm for Real-Time Strategy games, I really enjoyed playing Warcraft 3. It is an exciting, fun, and very balanced RTS. Blizzard did a great job not only making the game fun and fresh, but also by mixing in personality life.
