StarCraft II continues the epic saga of the Protoss, Terran, and Zerg. These three distinct and powerful races will clash once again in the fast-paced real-time strategy sequel to the legendary original, StarCraft. Legions of veteran, upgraded, and brand-new unit types will do battle across the galaxy, as each faction struggles for survival.

Featuring a unique single-player campaign that picks up where StarCraft: Brood War left off, StarCraft II will present a cast of new heroes and familiar faces in an edgy sci-fi story filled with adventure and intrigue. In addition, Blizzard will again offer unparalleled online play with several enhancements and new features to make StarCraft II the ultimate competitive real-time strategy game.

Compelling Stroryline
In the distant future, in the darkest reaches of space, the ghosts of the past whisper your name. You are Jim Raynor, a marshal turned-rebel on a vigilante crusade to bring down the Dominion and its nefarious leader, Arcturus Mengsk. Haunted by betrayal and remorse, some believe you may have given up the fi ght. But you have promises to keep... and a need for vengeance that's long overdue.

Call Down The Thunder
Whether you command the mysterious Protoss, the nomadic Terrans or the ruthless Zerg, you must decide how to outwit or outgun the enemy in an unforgiving universe of intense strategic combat.

Weapons Primed
Devise and deploy merciless strategies with over 30 new units and weapons at your command. Torch foes with the Hellion's fl ame thrower, ambush adversaries with acid-spewing Banelings or deploy the Mothership's disruptor pulse to annihilate your enemies.

Master Your Destiny
Lead Raynor's Raiders in their quest for vengeance and glory as they burn a path across the galaxy. You choose which missions to take, which story-lines to complete and where to invest your hard-earned cash.

Mega Multiplayer
Wage unrelenting war on your friends and foes over the all-new Battle.net. Whether it's your first time gaming online or you're a multiplayer veteran, Battle.net's unrivaled AutoMatch technology makes sure it's always a fair fight.

 Be warned of future plans

| | See all Hirsty's reviews (21)

Okay as a game this is pretty good, much like the original starcraft but made more presentable however I want to warn potential buyers that this game has been confirmed to be released as 3 seperate titles which all be full priced. For me this blatant money making con puts the game down so many points, if each part costs 35 pounds then the final cost of owning starcraft 2 will be 105 pounds excluding any extra fees. It's a disgusting attempt at choking money out of gamers who would normally be loyal to the series after having loved the original for many years. Personally I'd urge gamers to avoid but this will not happen and Blizzard will replicate this way of marketing with future products.

I am only interested in the single player campaign.
Graphics are really dated looking, effects are lame, buildings still have square footprint and can only be placed in one direction. Music during missions so bad and inappropriate it got switched off immediately. Story doesn't get well explained, cut scenes bore me, characters leave me unemotional towards them. Two stars only because for some reason I yet felt compelled to complete the campaign. That must mean something.

 Great - so what its in three parts

Some people are negative that SC2 is in three parts. But who cares? If each part is the same size as a full game - then all they are doing is not naming the other parts Starcraft 3 & 4. This game so far is pretty massive so as long as you get your money's worth from it who cares its in three parts - it actually gives something to look forward to. Would you have been disappointed with World of Warcraft when it came out as that was in different parts? No - because they were all massive!

Not a major player of this genre, but I am really enjoying this. Its simply and quite intuitive. I am running it on a 27" iMac i5 with 8GB RAM with everything set to high and it absolutely flies along. Very pleased with it.

Well worth a purchase for PC players and especially for Mac players (due to limited other titles available due to Mac not being a core gaming machine)

 great game but not all good

 a bit dissapointed

| | See all ahigginson's reviews (4)

dont get me wrong this game is nothing short of a miracle. it has good graphics undastandable controles and the rest but blizzad have been just a tad lazy. the units really havnt been changed or "upgraded" alot of this stuff was on the old game but that isnt the dissapointing part because dispite that it makes it easyer to get into so anyone can play it. the dissapointing bit is you dont get to play the zerg or the hybrid in the campain and only get a few missions with the protos which is a bummer and also an open ending what a shocker lol. looks like blizzard is either going to leave us hanging or milk starcraft again. god only knows what they are doing to diablo 3 hasnt he died already? anyway its a good buy but remember it could have an expansion at a later date if not i will not be happy. :)
