Product Description

Edition:Standard

Amazon.ca Product Description

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is the sequel to Blizzard Entertainment's 1998 hit StarCraft, which has been hailed by players and critics worldwide as one of the top real-time strategy games of all time. StarCraft II will once again center on the clash between the protoss, terrans, and zerg, with each side deploying favorite units from the original StarCraft, along with numerous upgraded and brand-new units and abilities that allow for fresh tactics and strategies. The game's new 3D-graphics engine maintains the speed and responsive control of its predecessor while rendering hundreds of units onscreen for massive battles. StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty's solo campaign will continue the epic saga where it left off in StarCraft: Brood War. The storyline chronicles the exploits of marshal-turned-rebel-leader Jim Raynor and features both familiar faces and new heroes. Players will be able to tailor the experience, choosing their own mission path and selecting technology and research upgrades to suit their playing style throughout the 29-mission campaign. Several challenge-mode mini-games will also be included, with focused goals designed to ease players into the basics of multiplayer strategies. In addition, dozens of multiplayer maps will be available for competitive play through the new version of Battle.net, which is launching alongside StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. This new version of the service has been built from the ground up to offer an unparalleled online play experience, with new features such as voice communication, character profiles and achievements, stat-tracking, ladders and leagues, cloud file storage, and more.

Edition: Standard
One can only respect BLIZZARD for not setting a release date before they knew they could meet it. No matter that this was the most awaited game for over a decade, they would release it "whenever it would be ready". Well, it is ready, it is here and it rocks. Too bad they kicked the respect bucket in the end. But first things first.

THE GOOD OLD GAMEPLAY GETS THE CIGAR
Seasoned and new gamers alike will appreciate the simple yet highly enjoyable gameplay. The factions are well balanced and the units perfectly valued. You gather minerals and vespene gas, you build your defenses, you upgrade, you expand, you gather your forces - and you unleash hell. Repeat as needed until satisfied.

STARCRAFT: THE QUICKENING
The game is much faster than the original. Resource gathering, building, researching and expanding all go faster now. This is something that will appeal to most and I for one liked it. It conveys an enjoyable sense of urgency, adding to the immersion. And because the game is richer and deeper, the tension just keeps mounting.

SWARMS!
The game designers either enjoyed STARSHIP TROOPERS one times too many or they are fond of killer bees documentaries. Either way, be prepared to have to deal with a lot of swarming enemies! The plains shall be soaked in Zerg blood leaving you with a thick metallic aftertaste of accomplishment.

SPACE. SPACE IS BEAUTIFUL
Visually this game is GORGEOUS. It looks like C&C4 was supposed to (but failed miserably). The units are detailed in design yet clearly discernible whereas the environments are superbly done (although not that variable). True, I could do with somewhat more realistic graphics but I can see that this could only be done at the expense of clarity when the number of units rises.

Starcraft II was long awaited by Starcraft and RTS fans alike. With the expansion (HOTS) coming out soonish, what can be said about this game?

Well, in two years Blizzard hasn't managed to balance the game as perfectly as it did for SC:BW (although SC:BW took nearly 7 years to become very balanced).

The game feels cleaner and faster than it's predecessor, the campaign is slightly more interactive giving you some choices (although they don't affect your gameplay much).

A lot of things lacking at release (LAN, clan support, chat channels) made this far weaker than Warcraft 3: TFT in many aspects as far as multiplayer goes. Blizzard has said many times that it wouldn't implement LAN ever although the entire community and tournaments have requested so. Clan support will come in the expansion and chat channels were added in BNet 2.0.

A lot of the "Custom Games" part feel very clunky, what they call the "Arcade" is not as visually understandable as it was in SC:BW and WC3:TFT (although you can tell they tried hard).

If you're a RTS fan I would suggest you try it although I cannot vouch entirely for it. I played it enough to consider my investment worth it although I feel the replay value (especially in single player) is low. I'm happier with Dota2.

By Adam TOP 500 REVIEWER on Nov. 16 2010

Starcraft (the original) and its expansion (Brood Wars) was the game that got me into computer gaming. The story line is the true hook and Starcraft 2 continues to reel me in.

The story is exceptionally well thought out. It follows in the wake of its predecessor and constantly makes you wonder what kind of plot twists to expect. I don't want to spoil anything, but it plays like a page-turning novel.

The game play is also quite remarkable. With Blizzard taking so long to release this game, they have really ironed out the wrinkles. Units are well balanced and the action is quick and intense. I doubt I'll ever be a top ranked player, but you don't have to be to have fun playing this fantastic game. Unfortunately there is a difference between campaign play and multiplayer play. If you play the campaign, you would probably expect to see several of the original Starcraft and Brood War units like the medic, firebat and goliath. While you can use them in the campaign, they are completely unavailable in the multiplayer portion of the game.

One draw back is that it didn't take very long to steam roll through the campaign missions. And because this is only the first of three installments, it makes me wonder if I shouldn't have waited for that boxed set after all...

Love this game. It's concepts and strategies can be applied on so many levels outside of the game. Great community online as well.

Only complaint, Blizzard takes so long to release sequels, I'll be 100 before Starcraft 3 comes out! Fantastic game and gameplay physics. I only wished they had introduced new races. If you have played the original for years, you will feel totally at home playing this.
