never played sc but i got the beta somehow, and man its fun ive only played like 5-6 games. my fav race is protoss i just make a load of warp gate or whatever its called and i just invade them like a boss


Did you go to Blizzcon or played WoW? Getting into the beta really had nothing to do with getting into SC2 beta.

Its funny when people dont get in, you hear something like "Ive played since 1998, and bought all the games and played wow since its beginning!"

They dont really care... lol

So, first impressions:

Ive played a few hours and its a cool game. Its growing on me. SC1 seems much faster and less cluttered, so its taking me alot to get used to this.

The PROS:
It really is like a whole new game.
There is a ton of new characters
The graphics are good
The maps are awesome
Its much, much harder to master

Cons:
Im getting my butt kicked in every game so far.
There is alot more micro management in this game
The Zerg Nadus canal is completly unfair
None of my strategies from the old game work.



It is highly addictive like SC1. Each game I play I like it more and more. You guys have any questions?

BTW - It runs smooth on an AMD Dual Core with 2 GB ram and a 256MB graphics card that was like $50 3 years ago.

Huh from what Ive heard and seen most of the things are completely opposite (like more micro management, and it being slower)

Are you playing random right now?

Well, that sounded dumb now that I think about it Laughing

Im not sure if we are saying the same thing or not. Are you saying other reviews have shown to be more or less micromanagement?

Cause, atleast in the games ive been playing, the competition is really good and its taking a lot of micro.

As far as it being slower - thats because there are no 'fastest' maps like there are in SC1.

Just wait until it's released. Guarantee a fastest map will be made within a week lol.

Less "micro" but more "macro" if you know those terms. Im hearing things like you can really use one hellion to kill 10 lings with micro. If you mean micro like you need to do alot of things then okay

As for the faster part, then okay lol, in pro starcraft they were alot like these maps and they were MUCH slower lol

Also dont worry there will be a fastest map, and 5000 maps when it comes out of UMS and melee lol

At first this game rubbed me the wrong way, but it as really grown on me. It seemed 'war-craftish' from the 3-d play, but after a few games, it is defiantly a SC game. I really like the game. Im getting better, and its much funner not getting stomped every game!

There needs to be some balancing done between the units though. The Zerg have a worm thing called the nadus canal that is super unfair. I can beat almost anyone with it.

Yea, I think thats what most people feel, graphics are much closer to WCIII but from what I see the gameplay is like 99% more starcraftish

I take it the Nadus canal is different from the original one in Starcraft?
