    Good game, not great, but good

    I've only played the original game a couple of times so I wasn't really sure of what to expect from this one. My son and a couple of friends were really hyped up about SCII so I picked it up. It IS a fun game, just not my cup-o-tea for the most part, well, for multiplayer anyway. Everybody plays the MP online at the fasted speed, games can be over in just a few minutes, really. Being an Age of Empires (2 & 3) player, I'm used to having a bit more time. This game almost seems like you need FPS reflexes to play, online anyway. The single player game was way more fun.The speed is more my style (playing on 'normal' difficulty) and the story isn't to bad either. It's worth playing it to the end. And my son enjoys filling me in on plot points that relate to the first game. Graphics are especially good for the most part. The terrain and units are deverse enough that looking at them doesn't get old to quickly. Special effects are nice (explosions, shots, lasers..., etc), but on the faster speeds they almost go by to fast to notice. In fact, the only complaint is that there's a lot of times where it's hard to tell how many units are huddled together when the action really gets going. They seem to "stack" on top of one-another. This is particularily true for air units, for some reason. Doesn't happen to often, so it's not a big deal. Game play is nice to, with multiple ways to group units and buildings. Mass producing units is a snap when you can group your buildings and queue up a couple of units at each, out pops an instant army at a gathering point of your choice. Nice. And an idle worker icon that appears on the side of the screen can be a real lifesaver. All in all, a good game, but the multiplayer isn't for me, which is probably the biggest draw for the game. If you can handle the speed of the online games, this one is for you.

    AWESOME GAME!!

    I just bought the game yesterday, I gotta say it's the best game I played so far. I'm barely on the 5th or 6th mission and it's already fun as hell. Multiplayer was really challenging, I lost my first game today, but I was alright with it because I could see a replay of what I did wrong, REPLAY HELPS! USE IT!, The graphics in Starcraft II are top notch. Running on the highest difficulty settings, bases, troops, vehicles, and enemies all look highly detailed. The cutscenes -- which use in-game graphics -- also look fantastic. One great thing about the graphics in Starcraft II is that there is almost never a drop in the framerate. As long as your PC can compete with the graphics setting you have chosen, you can run super smooth. Overall, GREAT GAME, IF YOU HAVEN'T BOUGHT IT YET, BUY IT!!

    Starcraft 2

    If you played Starcraft 1 and liked it then this will be a breeze to start playing. The new units make it a lot better however still needs to be some balancing. CONS: must have internet to start playing that should definantly be placed on the description of the game and highlighted. Their is about 100 Mb of updates and patches that must update before playing and then you are required to create an account with Battle.net just so you can play campaign and if you want your acheivments to show up and update you must log into battle.net every time you play even if you intend to play offline. This all really bits if your deployed over seas and internet is hard to come by like me.

    Lives up to the Hype but no LAN!!!

    Played about 3 hours worth and the game play is excellent. Great continuation for those who have been longtime players and will be just as addictive to newbies. Graphics and upgrades are pleasing to the eye and soul. But really bummed no LAN capabilities. The BNET multiplayer is better than ever but would be nice to have the opiton to have LAN parties. Only reason I did not give the game 5 stars is because the lack LAN and only campaign for Terrans. Definately recommend buying because this game jsut like the original will provide years of great game play at all levels.

    I really enjoyed playing the game. You can choose between multiple different levels, making the game feel less linear than the previous Starcraft. You can choose different power ups, and weaponry so you can power up as you see fit. Also, in a couple of levels you can choose different sides of a battle. The story line is good, the levels are fun, and graphics are sweet. But level play still hasn't changed much from the original starcraft formula, which is why I gave it 4 stars. I was hoping for a bit more from the level play. You better have a lot of RAM available to run this game too.

    This is my second SC2 for my other computer. It is a great game that picks up from where Star Craft left off. If you are new to MMO type games, I would research a bit about the game type itself and be familiar with it but SC2 also has some tutorials and such so I recommend picking this up and start playing. See system requirements as well before picking one up and make sure you have minimum requirements, or better still, better than recommended requirements so you can actually enjoy playing this amazing game.

    this game should cost only39.99 or so 59.99 for game is outrageus but I decided to buy it anyway. Never played before but it reminds me on Age of Empires space edition I must say I loved AOE and im shure SC2 will grow on my favorite list. Game actually looks much more than is to it, if they would be able to include first person shooter in to it would be even better(with sim option) but I guess cant have it all. I played only about 1h so far mabey i get further in game will get even better

    This is an excellent game. I have had it since it was released and play it often. The AI is challenging. Personally, I did not pay much mind to the story and skipped many parts of it but I understand that it was really good, especially if you were a big fan of the first. The price has gone down a lot since I got it so its a great buy. I plan on getting the Swarm and recommend that you do the same if you are getting this.

    Almost as good as Dawn of War 2

    it is good. The single player story is great. The multiplayer is livly. it is almost as good as Dawn of War 2. It does not push any bounderies. It does not have the scale of Supreme Commander or the the level of character the DOW2 has is all it units. If you are an RTS fan this is must buy.

    Great sequel

    With updated graphics, mechanics and special attention to the campaign, Wings of Liberty is a good sequel to it's predecessor, but I do find that the game does get a little boring after replaying the campaign and the multiplayer several times.

    The game grabs your interest right away and does a great job of getting you use to the gameplay. With various upgrades, challenges, and paths of play, this game has decent replay value. The online play is excellent and extremely competitive.

    An Amazing game that fans of the first game will love. The game plays very similarily to the first one but with a wide array of new features and units. Amazing story and cinematics as is to be expected from blizzard is always a plus

    Bought this game to hopefully relive some nostalgia of late nights playing warcraft 3 with friends. Though it is similar I just can't get into it like I did all the warcraft games, must be those peons I miss.. Jobs done.

    Story and mission command scenes are engaging. The optional dialogue adds lots of flavor. Take this as either a positive or a negative, but it feels a lot like the old Starcraft to me. Overall very good.

    Great graphics, allot of wasted memory on story videos and cheesy things, game play is solid thought. Wish it was as comprehensive as the first. this one is basically all terrain.

    I used to play the original Starcraft as a kid and loved it. Haven't played in years, this was on sale and I checked it out. Feels like the same game except better in every way.

    While the online play is still the main attraction, there is a decent single player mode. Even with discs, there is a big online download so be aware.

    Got it for my 9 year old grandson; however, it was too mature in language and violence for him. So I gave it to my 42 year old son and he loves it!
