Blizzard Entertainment released "Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness" in 1995. The real-time strategy game was a success, laying the groundwork for the massively successful massively multiplayer online role-playing game "World of Warcraft." Because of the game's age, "Warcraft II" is not compatible with Windows XP. Run an MS-DOS emulator to run "Warcraft II" on Windows XP.
