How Star Craft 2 Varies from its Previous Versions

StarCraft2 comes as the long awaited sequel to the epic StarCraft that was launched more than a decade ago. Just like its predecessor, it’s a real-time strategy game and Blizzard had earlier on announced its release set for July 27th 2010.

New Capabilities

However, unlike the original StarCraft, the new StarCraft2 was released as a trilogy. Even though it will retain some units from the original game, StarCraft2 has some of the units have been given new capabilities with others being completely removed while others have been replaced. For instance, as you play, you will notice that the conquest of the protoss homeworld means that you can longer create dragoons while the remaining dragoons have been given new weaponry and thoroughly redesigned. However, the new shield and weaponry can with stand heavy amour and is aptly named “immortals.” Even so, the new game’s multiplayer mode will be available to players for free and what this games all the more fan is the fact that, with StarCraft2, you will not need an internet connection to be able to play the game.

Retailing Digitally

All you will need your internet connection for is to enable you install it into your PC because the game will be availed via digital distribution. Blizzard said it plans to keep its support StarCraft2 however for years to come just like it did with the StarCraft patches that it has constantly updates for the last twelve years since the release of the game. But even so, as a continuation of the real time strategy genre, StarCraft2 and its parent StarCraft truly live up to their reputations despite the few limitations in terms of graphics. The new game endures just like its parent did, however, let’s look at more comparisons and similarities.

Keeping Fans Around

One thing rings clear in mind as I ponder the future of StarCraft2 in terms of doing what the original StarCraft has done in the more than ten years it has been around. Obviously, StarCraft2 has some work cut out for it if it has to maintain the good work began by its predecessor in terms of following and functionality. With its release in a Sequel, StarCraft2 has some job to do before I can be absolutely convinced of what it can achieve. First of all, I felt like in terms of graphics, I would have been fine if the first one had just had its graphics beefed up. The second release, StarCraft2 has some graphics limitations even though it still remains a great game. The new units, the replacements, the additions amongst a host of other things all distinguish it from its predecessor, StarCraft.

Blizzard did change so many features and brought in new and cool stuff that the original game didn’t have and the added capabilities are refreshing. For instance, Terran Wraiths have been removed and if you were a lover of the Terran air-to-air units, well they cannot cloak anymore.

Star Craft 2 Review

As it is currently, StarCraft II’s review are yet to start trickling in but by the end of the coming week, fans and players will have a thing or two to say about the game. However, even as it currently, there have been a number of reviews by various consumer organizations and by far, StarCraft II appears to have silenced critics who doomed it for failure even before it was launched.

The Hype Aside!

There can be no understating the popularity of the game word wide and as more players access the new StarCraft2 and give their feedback, be keen to see how the overall situation puns out. The game was just released on the 27th of July 2010 and I have to admit, even though I am yet to try it out, some consumer reports are already giving it some impressive scores. Part of the reason the sequel is getting all these mixed reactions stems from Blizzards perspective over the new game.

According to Blizzard, the new is an integral part of the sequel and when it turned on the night prior to the release, those who tried it out could truly attest to the superb functionality of the new StarCraft2. That is the company had prior to the release date kept it secret from both press and did not open its till 11pm on the eve of the release.

The Reception

If you were lucky enough to get your hands on a copy like I was, you might have played the game and felt like this is what it should have been like all those years of waiting. Like I said, the fact that thousands upon thousands are eager to get their hands on the new game is testament to the prowess of the console. If the publicity that StarCraft2: Wings of Liberty got last week when it was being launched is a review of sorts, then there must have been at least a positive reception.


But let’s consider the Amazon reviews that were less than appealing just two days after the release of StarCraft2: Wings of Liberty. I must admit the Amazon reviews were both favorable and unfavorable. Whereas lots of you had criticisms to plant upon the new StarCraft2, there are some of you who dismissed the labeled criticisms and gave out three fingers in salute. Most of you were concerned with StarCraft2’s pricing arguing that at $59.99 for the new game and $99.99 for the original and the new included, it had been overpriced. But again there were some of you who felt that at those prices, Blizzard had given the best deals it could and you had no problem.

But pricing aside, how really did StarCraft2 fair with reviews because pricing alone, as the Amazon reviews seemed to point out, cannot be enough to discount the new game. But one thing is for sure, given the hype and publicity that followed the release of the game, the least you would expect is an epic game.

Star Craft 2 Release date

After waiting for so many agonizing years, it did really happen and it came with a bang. The long awaited release of date for Star Craft2 finally came to pass and on the 27th of July 2010, aficionados of the game had something to finally smile about; the release of Star Craft2.

The Release Date!

Blizzard did keep their promise and even though it has been a prolonged wait, I must admit it was worth it. StarCraft2: Wings of Liberty has already hit the local stores, from its release date on the 27th July and the amount of attention it has generated amongst game console lovers is unrivalled. For this one, Blizzard deserves three pats on the back and a standing ovation, seriously though because the new game takes the whole experience a notch higher.

Countries Its Retailing Currently

If you are in the United States, Canada, Europe, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Russia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan you have to celebrate because the official release date covered this countries preliminarily and this means they are now available in local stores in these particular countries. The game has now available for days digitally on Blizzard’s website ever since the release date. I could not wait to grab my copy and begin the experience, given the fact that I have been patiently awaiting the release of Star Craft2 ever since Blizzard hinted at releasing it years back. Just so you know what am talking about, it has been a cool decade ever since Blizzard launched StarCraft, the sequel from StarCraft2 is born. So when I say it has been one long fruitful wait, trust me it was because the new baby is as good as it gets with StarCraft fanatics.

The Saga Continues

StarCraft 2 picks up with the epic saga of the Protoss, Terran and Zerg, the three different but powerful races will once again go head to head against each other, but only this time the war and strategy to be played is way better that its legendary sequel StarCraft I. In StarCraft2, your favorite veterans and heroes are made way better through amazing upgrades and Blizzard even added brand new unit types that battle across the galaxy for the survival of each race. According to Mike Morhaime, Blizzard’s chief executive officer and founder, the company has been keen on enhancing and improving the StarCraft universe for quite some time now and the release date was the perfect time. He further said that the company’s beta testers are currently in the final stages of developing the game and so far, there was considerable progress, he said. As such, Blizzard might be ready to welcome players and aficionados of the StarCraft from world over to StarCraft2 and the new Battle in a matter of months.

The standard edition of StarCraft2 will be sold at an affordable $59.99 whereas the collectors edition inclusive of the original StarCraft and StarCraft; Brood War expansion that will retail on a 2GB flash for an affordable $99.99.
