Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos - Sound

Sound

Most of the music within Warcraft III was composed by Tracy W. Bush, Derek Duke, Jason Hayes, and Glenn Stafford. The Limited Edition of Reign of Chaos came with much of the orchestral music on a separate soundtrack. Each of the four playable races has different music: monastic music for the humans; ambient and Native American-sounding music for the Night Elves; warlike African-sounding music for the Orcs; and fast, haunting music for the Undead. New musical themes were added in the expansion.

One of the signatures of Blizzard games are the unit quotes. If a single unit is clicked four or more times in a row, the unit's voice samples become increasingly comical. The unit may start getting angry at the player, or make allusions and references to other games, movies, or jokes. Movies quoted include Monty Python, Blade Runner, Star Wars Episodes IV & V: A New Hope & The Empire Strikes Back, Army of Darkness, and Toy Story. Games like Mortal Kombat, Warhammer 40,000, Blizzard's own StarCraft, and Banjo-Kazooie are paid homage, in addition to shows such as Saturday Night Live, The Twilight Zone, and Beavis and Butthead and Austin Powers: Goldmember.
