War1 was fun but not classic material ... it improved on Dune 2 technically but still had sucky multiplayer (daemons daemons !) Its sequel, Warcraft II, is imho the best strategy game of all time, because of it's very fast paced, attack oriented play that was lost in SC. In War2 the attacker was almost always in the stronger position because of peon death and bloodlust. Like Starcraft it also has an enormous skill curve. However, it's plagued by minor deficiencies like archers.
