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.

Big RTS here, SCII, Wow, excellent graphics and playability. For a game Blizzard have been keeping in hiding for almost 10 years, They really delivered. This is only Terran Campaign but you get 29 levels of increased Difficulty. Excellent storyline, characters are SICK in HD. Needs a better CPU then mine tho (Gotta MAC) If you can run it in High Def, DO IT!!! I think the online ladder will never cease to exist. This game is a MUST HAVE ( just like SC1, Brood War and the Warcraft Battlechest.... as well as Diablo's Battlechest for that matter!!! ) Overall rating of 9.9999/10 (I don't hand out 10/10 that easy but still......)

in 3 words : BUY THIS GAME! You'll Love it!

This is the greatest game in 10 years! 3 Near-perfectly balanced but unique factions battle for control of the Koprulu sector. Whether its the inventive and adaptive terrans, the gooey and disgusting Zerg, or the ethereal and mysterious Protoss, the game is extremely fine tuned, and the only game recognized by the e-sports league.

Multiplayer is tight and "easy to learn, but impossible to master"! The top Starcraft 2 players earn upwards of 500,000USD per year!

Awesome storyline, excellent multiplayer, GET THIS GAME!

Starcraft 2 was worth it!

Installation was not terribly long and the gameplay did not have any issues.
Have not crashed yet in any games/campaigns at all!
Graphics and sound was good.

I spent many hours clearing the campaigns and working on some of the goals for achievements.

The only negative aspect is having the necessity to sign in online before playing offline features...

Challenging for all levels and fun!
Brings back just enough nostalgia of the original Starcraft, but adds vast improvements to gameplay and graphics.
