While the gameplay is still fundamentally the same, the new races and map help to freshen up an already solid game. There are plenty of improvements in the game from WH1, both in the campaign and battle modes. There are still old problems that the game suffers from, like poor performance and stupid AI, but they’re easy to overlook when you can send a floating toad wizard across a battlefield of rat corpses. Overall, it’s a fantastic successor to an already great game."
