Okay, with all my posts about Starcraft 2, I figured I would post a review of it. I think it's an amazing game, and to be honest, I think it was completely worth the 60$ I paid for it.
Now, onto the review
Starcraft 2 brings back the classic gameplay of Starcraft 1. Some nice additions were added though. Units form smart formations, so the medics and long range guys will fall to the back allowing your main forces to stay in front and absorb all the damage. High ground makes a difference by letting you see your enemy first, and if you're on a cliff they’ll have a hard time reaching your tanks with ground troops. Plus, if your units are ranged, you can pound at them for a good amount of time before they reach you. Achievements will drive you on to keep replaying missions until you have completed them all, and after that there are still hundreds more. Everything from the campaign, single-player, co-op, and multiplayer has dozens of achievements for everyone.
The Campaign (8/10)
Now, don't get me wrong, I loved the campaign, but I'm just a bit dissapointed at the fact that it was only Terran. Otherwise, it's fantastic. The story picks up a few years after the events of Brood war. I mentioned above that this game focuses only on the Terran, so it's just one campaign for you to play. Since the campaign is about 25 hours long (If you decide to go for all the missions and achievements), you shouldn’t feel like they skimmed on content only giving you one campaign. I can't really say much without spoiling anything, but your in for one hell of a ride. The story is perfectly paced, and has climatic moments that will make you grab on to the edge of your desk. Oh, and remember Kerrigan? The Queen of Blades? Aw yeah, she's back to finish the job :D
Now for the biggest part...
The Multiplayer (11/10)
The multiplayer is stellar. 110% Awesome. There is a reason why Blizzard is one of the most successful game making companies out there. You start out choosing your race and league. If you're more of a solo player, you tend to do well in 1v1, but others like myself prefer good old fashioned teamwork. Nothing beats rushing into an opponents base with 2x the force of his and destroying him. The online matchmaking is great for any skill level. It starts you off in the practice league, so you can warm up against a ton of opponents before actually going for rankings. After that, you have a few qualifying matches, and you will be moved to a league, ranging from Bronze rank all the way to Diamond. And you will never NOT be challenged. The game will always pair you up with a suitable set of opponents. If it thinks you are ready to advance a league, it will pit you against higher level opponents. If you can beat them, you deserve it.
