Bundle with Warcraft II and Beyond the Dark Portal expansion

If you want to experience Warcraft 2 in its full might and glory, then this is the bundle for you. It contains Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness and Warcraft 2: Beyond the Dark Portal expansion, thus offering you the entire official releases from Blizzard. If you are a fan you'll know what to expect, the ork heavy real time strategy, brother to StarCraft, but with a slightly different feel to it. The game is a nice expansion over the original Warcraft, smoothing things quite a bit graphically, actually taking the series into full 3D mode, while the original Warcraft was an isometric, 2D deal. Single player campaigns are very nicely crafted, with all sorts of missions, some that will require base building and some that won't. You wil also love the game in multiplayer and for all intents and purposes, this game will deliver one of the most polished experiences in the genre you could hope for. So, don't postpone, (re)visit Warcraft 2 right away, for a tactical and strategic thrill that is, in my opinion, the epitome of real time strategy balancing, and also, if you're a WoW player, you'll get the added benefit of seeing how some of the series' lore got started.
