Summary: If it's any indication of how I feel about this game, I wrote this review two days later than I theoretically could have just because I wanted to keep playing it. I also took three breaks while actually writing it to go play some more. Sure, it could have gone up Friday, but I decided to spend the entire weekend playing it, just to be safe. It's been almost twelve years since we got Brood War , and the original StarCraft still remains insanely popular.
Excerpt: Right now in the top 5 there are 2 protoss 2 zerg and 1 terran (the unique races that you can play) Usually in games like this one race is dominant. Not in this game! You can win hundreds of dollars by playing in tournaments and such. All it takes is practice. Ive been playing this game since the release. Ive made about 1k dollars from it. I'm in masters league.
Excerpt: Starcraft: almost anyone who has ever touched a real-time strategy game knows exactly what series I’m talking about. Arguably Blizzard’s most successful title (if you exclude the millions World of Warcraft brings the devils monthly) amongst the widest audience globally. The three races: Terran, Protoss and Zerg, have become as commonplace as the king, queen, bishop, and rook in the minds of today’s competitive strategic players.
Summary: The gameplay in StarCraft II is solid as a rock, but next to some of the more sophisticated recent games like Dawn of War 2 and Company of Heroes, it seems a bit dated. Of course, one person’s “dated” is another person’s “classic,” but if you don’t like real-time strategy games, this probably isn’t the game that’s going to change your mind.
Excerpt: The next installment of the Starcraft franchise has landed with the Heart of the Swarm , an expansion for the 2010 release of Starcraft II Wings of Liberty. After rescuing Sarah Kerrigan from the Zerg in the previous game and "separating" her link as the Zerg Queen (aka the Queen of Blades), Jim Raynor was hoping for a happy reunion with his one-time lover. This would not be the case.
Excerpt: In StarCraft II, it’s still the Terrans, Zerg, and Protoss clashing against each other, and you’re still mining minerals with SCVs, Drones, and Probes and pulling Vespene Gas from the ground to fuel production. It’s a classic style of real-time strategy play, one old-school RTS gamers should be very familiar with.
