Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

More than a decade in the making, the world's favourite real-time strategy game is finally returning. The original is still played by millions but this sequel makes the whole experience accessible and relevant to a whole new generation of players.

Control an army of vehicles, spaceships and soldiers
Fight the environment and the enemy in this deadly map
Battlegrounds range from deep space to verdant planets
Can you keep your cool as hundreds of enemies attack?

Once again you can choose to play as one of three races - the Terrans, Protoss and Zerg - as you're given complete control of their armies and their wildly different attack units and buildings. A new non-linear storyline featuring the human Terrans (expansion packs will cover the other two races) teaches the ropes and adds to the series' mythos with stunning new cut scenes.

It is online that the game really comes alive though, with ranked matches that instantly connect you to a player of the same skill level. Whichever way you play though the game combines all the action and immediacy of an action game with the complex strategy that has made the previous game such a legend.

Key Features
  • Really strategic: Sequel to the most popular real-time strategy game ever, with incredible new graphics featuring hundreds of units fighting together onscreen.
  • Expect the unexpected: No two story missions are ever the same as you battle everything from deadly lava flows to enemies that only attack at night.
  • World of StarCraft: The most feature packed multiplayer ever with a unique ladder system for ranked games, plus detailed matchmaking options, replay features and more.
  • Balance of power: Control a perfectly balanced mix of units, including brand new weapons of war and old favourites with enhanced abilities.
  • Do it yourself: New editing tool allows you to make your own custom maps and modifications, with a legion of fans ready to create their own flood of unique content.

One can only respect BLIZZARD for not setting a release date before they knew they could meet it. No matter that this was the most awaited game for over a decade, they would release it "whenever it would be ready". Well, it is ready, it is here and it rocks. Too bad they kicked the respect bucket in the end. But first things first.

Seasoned and new gamers alike will appreciate the simple yet highly enjoyable gameplay. The factions are well balanced and the units perfectly valued. You gather minerals and vespene gas, you build your defenses, you upgrade, you expand, you gather your forces - and you unleash hell. Repeat as needed until satisfied.

The game is much faster than the original. Resource gathering, building, researching and expanding all go faster now. This is something that will appeal to most and I for one liked it. It conveys an enjoyable sense of urgency, adding to the immersion. And because the game is richer and deeper, the tension just keeps mounting.

The game designers either enjoyed STARSHIP TROOPERS one times too many or they are fond of killer bees documentaries. Either way, be prepared to have to deal with a lot of swarming enemies! The plains shall be soaked in Zerg blood leaving you with a thick metallic aftertaste of accomplishment.

Visually this game is GORGEOUS. It looks like C&C4 was supposed to (but failed miserably). The units are detailed in design yet clearly discernible whereas the environments are superbly done (although not that variable). True, I could do with somewhat more realistic graphics but I can see that this could only be done at the expense of clarity when the number of units rises.

I came into the StarCraft universe through a clone, namely Atrox, and when that lead me to the original StarCraft I was so glad I picked it up for whatever pittance it cost.

I've been a fan of the franchise for as long as I've known it existed, and when I heard the news that a sequel wasn't just in the idea phase, but was almost ready to be released, I was beyond excited. It had taken long enough, right?

Let's just say that this is one instance where the hype didn't disappoint.

Would I have liked to play all three chapters of the story at once? Sure, but that's because it's a fantastic story!

This is a full game, no question. The upgrades systems are well thought out, the new additions to the unit lineups are exceptionally fun, and what little time was spent playing as the other races made me eager for the expansions.

I don't often buy video games when they're released. If I do buy a game I usually wait a year or two, but I will be buying the next two chapters of StarCraft II as soon as there's a pre-order button to be pressed.

A hearty recommendation from me, a casual-medium gamer.

You're a Starcraft 1 fan looking for a similar single player campaign?
You like building bases, researching upgrades, conquering the map bit by bit?

Look elsewhere.

The single player part of this game has NOTHING to do with what you got in Starcraft 1, Warcraft, or the Command & Conquer games. Every single map has some kind of countdown forcing you to run from one end of the map to the other, doing 10 things at the same time, leaving you NO TIME to play around with your new units, building or the map. Blizzard is trying to prepare you for hectic multiplayer games, even if you're not interested in that.

If you're into Multiplayer, of course: get this game.

I played the original when I was young and loved it. The sequel doesn't disappoint. You build buildings, produce units and attack the other team. Unlike Command and Conquer (C&C) where you don't have such tight unit control and the buildings tend to be tougher SC2 is all about micro control of units.

Fun at first this is meant to differentiate the men from the boys in allowing it not simply to be a resource game i.e. whoever has the most units wins. I say men from boys because it is the boys who win hands down at this. I say fun at first because the men with day jobs die as is appropriate as they have jobs to go to in the morning. Unless of course playing computer games is your job which is not as uncommon as you might thing for SC2 with a big Korean/US and European gaming community.

Honestly this is a really great game that rewards your skill and ability if you are prepared to put everything on hold but is still great for novices who just want to enjoy the great game play or the nostalgia like me. And the careful balancing means you will be playing people of your own ability - or you can play the single player campaign which is not an after thought but genuinely entertaining.

Definitely try it you like this sort of thing. This and SC1 are probably one of the "great" games in the pantheon of game history - it was genuinely something new when it first came out.

Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty is the first "base" game of Starcraft II (there are two expansions coming soon) and is heaps of fun. The game has great strategic elements and the three races have interesting different options with rich lore. The campaign mode is fun and engaging and the multiplayer keeps you coming back for more to advance your rank and learn new builds in your chosen race (Protoss ftw). Not only that but most games have a friendly atmosphere in which you can have a nice chat with your opponent (and kinda forget certain key macro plays), another great aspect of the SC2 community is the eSports and the casters involved, people like HuskyStarcraft, TotalBiscuit and Day9 all make highly entertaining videos on the game, which ALWAYS make you want to play afterwards.

I'd also recommend picking up Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm (PC/Mac DVD) also once it comes out, it looks awesome, adding new units to the game as well as furthering the storyline.

As with every game it does have its gripes, for one at the time of writing this Blizzard have yet to introduce Global Play (however upon tweeting them, I have discovered that it will be coming very soon.) so at this point in time you can only play with people from your region. (e.g. EU, NA, CA etc...)

Also... The box for this game is freaking awesome.
