Starcraft 2
 
It's been 12 years since the first game, who else has been waiting forever? I got my copy a couple days ago and have been glued to the thing while I'm not working. Always been a big fan of Blizzard games, Diablo 2 taught me how to type fast in elementary school :laugh:

I didn't like the beta that much (seemed too much like a big game of rock, paper, scissors). Has it changed for the better?

There's only really been minor balancing tweaks since Beta but the whole game is solid for sure. Maybe you're just having strategy problems.

I loved Starcraft when i was growing up, so of course I picked it up a day after it came out. The campaign is epic, online play hasn't changed a bit, and they upgraded the units and graphics just enough to be new but not unfamiliar. I just don't like how they are milking it as best they can by releasing 3 different copies, one for each race's campaign.

I am really enjoying it though.

I didn't have any problems with winning. It was more like everyone just massing one unit and then there being only one unit available to counter the massed unit. Idk, and they removed any form of micro...

How epic?? My only motivation to play the campaign is to unlock and view some sick videos...like the SC2 trailers. Any of those? :D

The campaign is really epic, the production values, storyline, and variability of the missions really make it an awesome experience. You have all your typical mission archtypes but in every mission there is a unique twist that makes things interesting, different, and rather challenging.

While it is very similar to the original; strategy-wise it's way different. Most of the old units no longer exist, and many of the ones that do function completely different. In the old game there were certain strategies for each race that were just "best", in the new one they've balanced the units so well you can come up with a huge array of strategies that will all work, or all fail depending on what your opponent does.

The only thing I don't like is the abilities for people to zerg really hard. Unless your a really good player, and your opponent is a really good player, you never get the chance to really unleash the full arsenal of any of the races. Multiplayer-wise this game has a long learning curve unless your one of the RTS multiplayer pro's. On the brightside they have a ranking system that helps keep you playing against people on your same skill level.

I would also suggest playing the Campaign on Hard, it makes the game more interesting and a much longer experience.

Here's a good review: http://pc.ign.com/articles/110/1108642p1.html
