Recommended game , the first 6 hours when i played this game i felt like i played for 6 minutes..i cant get enough of it!! for anyone who wants to try RTS games for the first time this Piece Of Art should be your #1 choice.
This game is looking sooo good! Seems really balanced and polished, and it really reminds me of the good old days of SC. WANT!
really good battle report cant wait for next, and this game look really well done and balanced.. only time will tell
i'v been a fan of blizzard all my life and they never stop making great games! so i'm going to die if this game does come out soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
6 years later...... still waiting...................................................................................................................................................................
Yeah, I agree with you wizdom. Starcraft seems more focused towards tactics and micro than on strategy imho compared to Supreme Commander and CoH. But can't wait to play the campaigns because Blizzard games have incredible stories.
I have no problem with the game overall, but personally it feels outdated gameplay wise to me, (can't scroll back the camera? no auto attack? seriously?) if this was anyone but Blizzard they would be rip apart, I have been on record to say that Valve, Blizzard and Bioware can do no wrong in the pc crowd of gamers and reviews, the game plays like starcraft which come out in 1998, Commander and Conquer 3 did this and was blased for it by gamers and critics alike (which shows clear bias among gamers and critics alike), but because it's blizzard they get away with it, games like COH,DOW2,Sins of a Solar Empire and Supreme Commander are doing new things for the strategy gen., SC2 looks like more of the same thing with better graphics, will it be polish? Of course it will, it will be a great game overall, sure it will, but I would rather play Supreme Commander 2 at this point then this game.
after all i had tracked this game for more than 1 year since it still did not release but i know they want to make it perfect. i will wait! i think blizzard entertainment shall develop hero unit in skirmish battle like warcraft 3 does . of course not using the original hero name such as zeratul, jim raynor or sarah kerringan . starcraft 2 are ultimate real time strategy gaming platform so i think really need to make more realistic with a warchief , mastermind or general in the game . anyway haha depend on our most faithful blizzard entertainment to decide . support blizzard entertainment
yall know you gonna end up getting the game anyways,n still complaining.to me it's looking real good and it's still early until this comes out so ya can't be hating on them on some beta version.
I had this game experience before . Its called command and conquer (red alert). Rushing/ destroying resources. If this is all they have to offer im pretty disappointed
This is a joke right? Dont get me wrong, at the 90's starcraft was the rts leader but todays gamers expect much more from a rts game and with company of heroes and dawn of war 2 offering so much more, starcraft also needs to do some changes. I mean, cover system and buildings could be a good idea. And that "faster clicks better player" thing belongs to the past. All we need is more strategy, less speed. I dont wanna see a polished starcraft 90's but a game with brand new ideas and aspects that can be fit in the 2010 games.
These guys are already playing the game, so what is Blizzard waiting for? Release the game already and let use have some fun!
Watching all these gameplay vids and observing the amount of improvements made compared to Starcraft 1 I can't figure out why is this taking so long? Is there like 1 guy working on it on weekends? And what's with all the hype? This game should 've been released 2-3 years ago.[Edit: oops that's when supreme commander was relesed :> so maybe 4-5 years ago] If not the name this game would be just another rts, no fuss, passed over and forgotten.
i just downloaded the gameplay video on thier web site. if you look closely on the game graphics looks like a heavily modified havok engine. much more modified than the source engine i think.
it may just be cosmetic, but the character animations seem too jittery...maybe its because this is just an early version?
Just watching this gives me that warm addictive feeling.. I cannot wait for this epic game. It's going to pwn.
I agree with your statement, ComradeGiraffe... there better be an equal counter to the nukes for the Protoss and Zerg. Also, I don't remember the nukes recharging that fast in the original SC. They should have increased the duration. BTW, the Protoss have the ability to create a black hole! from the mother ship... however, I think it only affects air units.
looks awesome, but that little ghost>medivac tactic could be very cheap online. I'm not an experienced starcraft player, is there no air unit to deal with those threats?
Man i gotta say that David kim guy sure is good. and this game is INSANE i want it soo bad even though i havnt played the first but iv seen it,and its a HUGE upgrade from the first.
