Starcraft 2 review

Starcraft 2 Terran's surrounded by Protoss

I bought Starcraft 2 a few days after its release.  Burned some hours directly after buying it, and then largely left it alone.  This was not because it was a bad game.  It is exactly the opposite it is a great game.  The only thing about it is that it feels so similar. Starcraft 2 is the exact same game Starcraft 1 was.  In this instance the old phrase if it is not broken don’t fix it.  Well Blizzard did not have a broken game so they did not go about reinventing it (fixing it).  They did how ever take some relevant changes to make the game fresh again.

The first and obvious change is the graphics.  I love the graphics in this game.  They are detailed enough but still capture the original Starcraft art style.  They do it beautifully the shadows and colors and the sounds really bring you into the game.

Not a lot of unit changes were introduced into the game.  But then again when you have such a well balanced game changes are not really needed.  I make no secret I enjoy playing the money maps on starcraft.  I do not enjoy branching out and building new bases.   I would much rather focus on one base build up defenses and focus on deploying and maneuvering my armies.  They made building up fortifications much easier by making the supply depots ace as gates in their ability to go underground to allow units to pass over them.  In the original Starcraft, players would build walls of supply depots to prevent enemy units from reaching the bunkers and more often siege tanks behind them.  This is still a valid tactic in Starcraft 2 but is made much easier by allowing units to pass over the depots.

I do with more campaign units were allows in the multiplayer.  I personally do like the super transport.  But I have a suspicion they will be allowed once Starcraft 2 Zerg or Starcraft 2 Protoss are released.  Over all I give this game a highly recommended buy.  If you were a fan of the first Starcraft you will be a fan of this game as well.  The single player is enjoyable and the multiplayer is also enjoyable.  Blizzard successfully took the first Starcraft game and updated the graphics and made it slightly better.
