    Outside of the first mission, this is by far the best custom campaign I've played so far. Great way for people who never played the first Warcraft to get a feel for how the orcs came to exist in the human world.

    The first mission was made waaaaay too difficult for people who enjoy killing everything on the map, such as myself, with level 7 and 11 ogres you have to kill, both of which come surrounded with level level 5 ogres/orc grunts. I ended up needing to kill around 5-6 level 5 ogres and one level 7 ogre with just my level 3 hero to finish the mission - Had to 'pull' the weaker orcs and run away from the level 7 orc various times to heal at the near(ish) fountain of life, using roar to escape each time.

    It's a shame this hasn't been updated since 2003... The guy who started this project has vanished into thin air, even though his site shows screenshots of the 2nd part. Might be worth everyone sending an email (email on his website) to see if he he's interested in restarting the project.

    {EDIT}
    Hmm, seems I posted too soon - Mission 3 is even more difficult than the first. It seems impossible to win when you have a level 10 red dragon attacking you every few minutes... Hoping it's easier on easy.

    This campaign would be 10/10 excellent if the guy who created it came back to fix the insane difficulty hikes.

    Edit: Managed to *just about* beat it on easy. Not sure what the main differences are between easy and normal mode, but even on easy mission 3 was still the hardest Warcraft 3 mission I've ever tried...

    Yeah, the campaign is hard and that is good so, it shouldn't be changed
    and the hardest mission in the campaign is the latest, so have fun!

    Hard is one thing, near impossible is another. The change in difficulty between the first and second mission shows you that it needs fixing.

    It's stupid when you have to 'cheat' the system in order to win in the first mission...assuming you're the kind of person who kills everything on the map. It needed QC by a few people... Shame it's too late now.

    Anyway! The fourth mission has yet again lowered the difficulty level back to something more reasonable and fun. Very well made mission, you have to end it quickly or find the other gold mine asap.

    Edit: Oh yeah, nearly forgot. The optional quest in mission 3 seems to not work - I killed every creep and saved everyone, yet the quest never updated.

    {EDIT}
    Mission 5 is also HARD. The creator of this definitely wanted to know people would have a hard time finishing it. Scary to think how hard the missions in part 2 were going to be...

    Anyway, any tips for beating the first human mission?

    to aionics comments, i agree abt missions 3 and 5 but the others were fairly easy. this campaign involves more strategy than the original campaigns,and it takes alot of patience to play it. took me 4 trys to get mission 5, haha.
    sum1 needs to find p2 and get it on here.

    Great campaign, one of the best I've played, although it was a bit too easy. Somehow, I completed all of the maps in one try without any loading...although it took me 1.5 days to finish the entire campaign since I like to do all the quests + explore every part of the map while killing everything on the map.

    Didn't notice any glitches but there were some minor spelling errors.

    Hope you make Episode 2: The Fall of Azeroth soon, I REALLY want to play it...

    Great job! I don't know if you'll ever finish the second episode, but if you did, it'd be great!

    Some downsides in the campaign; some grammar mistakes, and I agree that it was too easy. Vampiric Aura + Frenzy + Unholy Frenzy was just monstrous. You could defeat entire armies just with two heroes.

    The storyline could also have been better shaped. I like the fact that you used Warcraft II music, but you should have used more of those. Some of the musics you used did not fit well into the game.

    Having that settled, I award this campaign a [7] Very Good rating.

    This is one of the best campaigns I've played. I even enjoyed it more than the original campaigns!

    Pros: I really like the Warcraft history, and this delivers a great piece of it! (It's a remake of Warcraft 1)
    The campaign has a really cool style and I really loved that every map had their own music and such. Most (if not all) new skins and models was great as well.

    Cons: It had some grammar mistakes and at first I thought it was a bit hard. But then I realized how strong the heroes really was.

    Overall: The author have created a very creative and funny campaign. I recommend it to all who like warcraft's history.

    I *really* hope he make Episode 2: The Fall of Azeroth :)

    I never did beat mission 5 - I kept failing and was very bored with Warcraft 3 (after beating W3 + FT), so I quit.

    I'm going to give this campaign another go. It would be nice if there was a part 2 and fixes to look forward to, but...

    btw, i found a bug: Raise Dead skill from gul'dan is buggy in level 2 (and maybe also level 3?) does also kill sometimes your own units and make them undeath for a short time...
