Metacritic Blames Warcraft 3: Reforged for Bugs & Crashes

Blizzard’s remastered version of Warcraft 3, Warcraft 3: Reforged is already available. The “new” RTS game features updated HD graphics, CGI cutscenes, and a new multiplayer mode adjusted for modern requirements. Unfortunately, the long-awaited remake didn’t meet fans’ expectations. Thousands of users reported about login issues and the lack of high-res textures.

Some attentive fans also noticed that fragments of content from the original Warcraft 3 are absent. For some reason, the developer didn’t include custom campaigns and group clans. Characters such as Death Knight are not remastered but replaced with simpler models of other characters. Finally, Warcraft 3: Reforged may crash multiple times because of many bugs. 

Currently, the title’s rating on Metacritic is as low as 2.0. Fans called the release an “Ultimate Fan Betrayal.” Nevertheless, Blizzard still has time to patch the game to fix problems. Fans of the developer will forgive the embarrassing failure as they value the company’s past very much. What do you think about the game?
