Update: Blizzard is trying to make things better with their Warcraft fans by offering refunds regardless of playtime. The developer is allowing anyone unhappy with the game to refund the game with no questions asked. It’s unclear how long Blizzard will allow this, but you can visit their page here for more information.
Since the announcement at BlizzCon 2018, Warcraft III: Reforged was a title that pretty much all Blizzard fans were anticipating. New cut scenes, reworked graphics, and other changes all sounded like something that would bring the game back to life and allow us to relive the glory days of Warcraft 3.
Blizzard somehow managed to make Reforged worse in nearly every aspect. The game feels completely unfinished, as if it’s some sort of open beta for what’s yet to come. There are numerous framerate and gameplay issues, and it just feels like there’s a lot of work that still needs to be done.
Metacritic users gave the game a whopping 1.0/10, making it one of the lowest scoring PC games of all time. Some people are feeling like they borderline got scammed by false advertising. After all, the game did look a lot better when they first announced it.
