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.

THE GOOD OLD GAMEPLAY GETS THE CIGAR
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.

STARCRAFT: THE QUICKENING
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.

SWARMS!
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.

SPACE. SPACE IS BEAUTIFUL
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.

If you're not interested in competitive online play, there's little use you'll get out of this.

The skirmish, calling "training" here, is absurdly hard for casual play. It also presumably won't work if you don't have internet connection.

The campaign is good enough, but really, although you have different options adding to the replay value, it's not something I'd imagine playing that much.

Update: The characters are fairly endearing and so are the requests for help from various units but I can't get past the focus on online multiplayer.

Prompt delivery. Having played prior versions of Blizzard's Warcraft and Starcraft a long time ago, it was great to play this new version. Ultra plays smoothly on an i7 / GTX950 / UHD system. Note that the DVD only contains a small 2 Meg setup file (and the product key). Be prepared for a longgggg download...

I'll begin by saying that if you have purchased starcraft 2: wings of liberty you should purchase both :Heart of the swarm and :Legacy of the void in order to experience starcraft as it should be experienced. How good is it you say? well, put it this way: I couldn't get my hands on a single copy of wings of liberty,Heart of the swarm or even Legacy of the void in any of the GAME stores i visited. They were always sold out and had lots of back orders from customers. This is why ordering from amazon.com is one of the best ways to get your hands on all three titles at once. The best RTS of all time since starcraft with broodwar, (well number 1 in korea for starters) :) .
