    10 years means nothing to this game!

    With the announcement of Starcraft 2 I thought it would be time to review a game that I have loved and sometimes hated over the years. The graphics may not be as hyped as Supreme Commander but it has in my opinion the 3 ... Read Full Review

    A great expansion to a classic game.

    GOOD: Great additions; sounds remain good, especially voice acting; even more challenging AI; storyline and characters as memorable as original; engaging and addicting multiplayer BAD: Multiplayer overrun with "money ma... Read Full Review

    This is one of those games that you just keep coming back to.

    This game never really gets old because there is practically endless possibilities of games you can join or create. What I mean by that is, if you have the internet there are always people creating new games on Battle ne... Read Full Review

    I believe there is no such thing as a perfect game, but this came damn close!

    I had always heard great things about this game, but when i got it my expectations were greatly exceeded, the main reason being how completely different the 3 armies/races are, there isnt a single common unit to any army... Read Full Review

    What do you want? Yeah I'm going...

    Blizzard attempts to please Starcraft fans and keep the game interesting with this release, but can be summed up as the introduction of a few new units and landscapes, nothing spectacular. The medic was a welcome relief ... Read Full Review

    The best RTS ever made.

    The original StarCraft was revolutionary, and sold millions of copies. Blizzard would be hard-pressed to make a sequel as good as it, but they went over the top and beat it. Using 3 races, Terran, Zerg, and Protoss, you ... Read Full Review

    Is strategy doing the same thing over and over?

    I'll mainly be discussing the campaign side of this game because the multiplayer is an even more pathetic waste of time. The campaigns start off charmingly enough. Each mission actually has a bit of variance, but boils... Read Full Review
