North America Retail Box ArtUnited Kingdom Retail Box ArtAnother welcome add-on pack for the popular PC fantasy strategy game, The Frozen Throne is a very generous extension to an already terrific title that simply begs to be bought. The new pack picks up with the single-player campaign where Warcraft III left off. It delivers an involving, gripping and long-lasting challenge, that's liberally littered with plenty of variety. Some missions require you to build up forces and go on the attack, while others will limit your units or bring in numerous armies to deal with and control. It's got a satisfying story arc and, except for the odd moment where it falls back on tried-and-tested formulas instead of pushing things on, The Frozen Throne is an outstanding success. The icing on the proverbial cake comes in the form of the multi-player options and support for clans and tournaments is very welcome indeed. They're customisable enough to keep things varied while ultimately getting you down to the game itself without much messing around. Most owners of Warcraft III are likely to pick this up anyway and they're not going to be disappointed. It's a great-value, enduring add-on and makes an already excellent game a whole lot better. --Simon Brew
