After seeing Warcraft 3 Reforged videos, I realized how much keeping the sounds while updating the visuals help with making the game feel the same, while still feeling like an upgrade.
I’m not even going to mention the outright bad sound effects such as War Wagons plastic arrows, but man, I strongly believe the original sounds are priceless and shouldn’t be changed after 20 years.
Most sound effects were not updated, they were completely changed or removed, which is a completely different thing. Where are the villager death sounds, the civilizations classic lines of some units?
If I’m going deeper into personal opinions, I also dislike the battle sounds (such as melee units attacks), I think it’s “too much” and it feels forced, and not as sharp. I miss the cavalry gallop sound, and I hate the new cavalry movement sound.
Maybe I’m just too involved with music/sound (I get goosebumps hearing music that I like more than the regular person), but still…I would mod it myself if I was sure it is possible.
