Best RTS game I've played in a long time. The expansion is also great. Probably the best game since the classic Starcraft. The first game follows the races of men, elves and dwarfs as they fight the forces of evil. you can also play an evil campaign to destroy the good races. they expansion adds a new race, Angmar, the Witchkings army. you can play the Angmar campaign in the expansion as well as an epilogue where you play as men. online aspects of the game are all great. it feels really smooth and runs with minimal lag. the chat monitor edits all curse words typed by the other player online, so if you have a younger kid that wants to play the game you don't have to worry about them seeing foul language. the online game online will also keep stats of all your past game, from how many units you killed to what your favorite unite is. the AI for the computers in the game is better than any other RTS game that i have ever seen.
