@mardinn -- I never compared StarCraft II to a role-playing game. How on earth did you come up with that?

Most RTS games include multiple campaigns for different factions. SCII is an RTS, and therefore, gets compared to other RTSs. Even less interesting strategy games--Universe at War, Maelstrom, and so on--have multiple campaigns! Therefore, it is absolutely legitimate to call out the single campaign as a minor drawback. It isn't as though I harped on it ;)

Did you know I have received messages from people that thought I should make it a bigger deal? If that tells you one thing, it's that no review will tell everyone what they wish to hear. If I tried, I'd probably go insane!

This game is full of positive points and in my view it hasn't any problem .

Great review - but why bang on about only being able to play terrans when we have been told StarCraft 2 is in 3 parts? 1 for each Faction. So only being able to play one faction is hardly a negative point. The negative is that the complete StarCraft 2 game will cost around $100 or more (depending if the other factions will be upgrades a la WoW which tbh they should be)

Gamespot what do you want? Two campaings? One is enough. One is following the story. So is Diablo games.. Don't dumb the review down by saying ONLY one CAMPAING?!£$ Otherwise a great review. One more thing. Don't compare this game to a role-playing game Kevin. Another thing; GTA IV on Ps3 and 360 got a solid 10. It has only one campaing also. Just sayin'. 9.5 is a suitable review score isn't it? ;]

@AMitch24 My bet would be that you are using AdBlockPlus. If you are, you'll need to disable it on GameSpot since they now have commercials at the beginning of each video, which ABP is blocking, therefore causing the video to not play. Hope this works for you!

@AMitch24 -- If you are using Chrome as your browser, clear your cache. That should fix it right up.
