A game made from Blizzard Entertainment, based entirely on the 'Warcraft Orcs and Humans' game, that made best seller when it was first released. This game, while being a sequel itself, has since spawned 1 more sequel, as well as a MMORPG called World of Warcraft.
I was playing Warcraft II on yesterday and got my orc beat up. :(

A computer game with optional PvP ( abilities. Highly addictive. It has regular levels (will take you a few years to beat them all unless you play regularly) and also extended 'Dark Portal' levels. You can choose to play as Humans or Orcs. The Dark Portal levels regularly feature NPCs, while these only appear from time-to-time on the basic levels.
Available are custom maps, which allow you to play only one level of any given situation. Some even let you upgrade for free! If you have Map Editor, you can create and use your own maps.
Until you get far enough in the game, it can be really boring. However, once you get the hang of armies and using Death Knights, Mages, etc, it is very easy to enjoy.
Went on sale for about $35 CN three years ago. Is now considered sadly outdated.
I am so old school that I do not play normal computer games; I play Warcraft II.

A 1999 re-release of Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness, and its expansion pack, Beyond the Dark Portal, classic RTS games centered around battles between orcs and humans, with a good campaign and great multiplayer, both enhanced in the Edition re-release. Plenty of cool magic and weaponry to keep people entertained for hours and cheap to buy since it's old. Unfortunately the game does not work on Windows Vista and its LAN can be messed up by multiple network interfaces. Predecessor is Warcraft 1, spiritual successor is Starcraft and sequels are Warcraft 3 and WoW.
I pawned those orc noobs thinking they were so cool with their bloodlust by hitting them from the sea with 1337 human battleships! Not as imba as you thought ur race was in Warcraft II: Edition, eh punks?
