Only in WC2, not in 1.

And while that may make them unbalanced, that doesn't give the two races a totally distinct feel. The way say, Night Elves have a totally different feel from Orcs in WC3. (Honestly I think WC3 didn't go far ENOUGH in this regard)

I think Warcraft 3 looks really bad.
It's more visually cohesive than SC2 is I think.

Still, I do wonder what's the deal with this:
I... don't know. He's animated better than that in WC3 I think.

Yeah, that was pretty nice. I disliked the armor system though.
I like it conceptually, and certainly in Frozen Throne it was massively improved over Reign of Chaos. But I don't think it's always been used very well. Some units naturally have an advantage over others just because of design, they don't need a damage bonus. (Huntresses over grunts for example, just because they're faster, have a bounce attack and range makes them naturally good counters to anything slow that bunches up with melee damage)
