Product Description

Product Description

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is the sequel to Blizzard Entertainment's 1998 hit StarCraft, which has been hailed by players and critics worldwide as one of the top real-time strategy games of all time. StarCraft II will once again center on the clash between the protoss, terrans, and zerg, with each side deploying favorite units from the original StarCraft, along with numerous upgraded and brand-new units and abilities that allow for fresh tactics and strategies. The game's new 3D-graphics engine maintains the speed and responsive control of its predecessor while rendering hundreds of units onscreen for massive battles.

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty's solo campaign will continue the epic saga where it left off in StarCraft: Brood War. The storyline chronicles the exploits of marshal-turned-rebel-leader Jim Raynor and features both familiar faces and new heroes. You will be able to tailor the experience, choosing your own mission path and selecting technology and research upgrades to suit your playing style throughout the 29-mission campaign.

Several challenge-mode mini-games will also be included, with focused goals designed to ease you into the basics of multiplayer strategies. In addition, dozens of multiplayer maps will be available for competitive play through the new version of Battle Net, which is launching alongside StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. This new version of the service has been built from the ground up to offer an unparalleled online play experience, with new features such as voice communication, character profiles and achievements, stat-tracking, ladders and leagues, cloud file storage, and more.

StarCraft comic book issue #0, a prequel to the comic series A World of Warcraft mini Thor in-game pet that can be applied to all World of Warcraft characters on a single Battle Net account Exclusive Battle Net downloadable content, including special portraits for your Bat

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game. Welcome to modern gaming. July 27, 2010
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This new iteration of Starcraft is very good.

This is the collectors edition. Its about thirty dollars more than the base version. While that may seem like a lot being one third more cost, you do get a ton of really cool extras. I will put a + next to the ones I think are good. Whats different in this version vs the other version. For your thirty dollars you get:

..>> A nice art book with paintings, character models, sketches for behind the scenes look into the art of the game.
+ >> A making of DVD with behind the scenes movie of how the game was made.
..>> A CD of the music from the game.
+ >> A 2GB Flash drive shaped like Raynor's dog tag. In the drive there is the original Starcraft plus the Broodwar Expansion. You can use this drive for anything its still a 2GB drive in the end.
..>> A Starcraft comic book
+ >> A different icon for your character on Battlenet.
+ >> Special Icons and logos for your units in the game
+ >> Special collectors edition of the Terran Thor.
+ >> MY favorite a MiniThor pet for WoW that is for all characters on your Battlenet account. Just like the Pandaren monk or Mountain Dew promotional pet.

Its alot for only a few dollars more. I spent that much on 3 WoW pets, so if your into unique items this may be the upgrade for you. I have too many books now as it is so the extras are not IMHO worth it all that much. That being said the DVD has a nice production value to it and the other pieces are well made so if you are into that aspect you may enjoy it more.

The review of the game:

Blizzard has taken this game into the modern time with a new look, 3D engine and new strategies. You do not have to have played the original Starcraft to understand what is going on here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent RTS... took Blizzard long enough December 3, 2010
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I won't get into details, but this is definitely one of the best RTS games out on the market. They've captured all the fun of Starcraft Broodwar and added in features that were missing. Sure, some of the features like LAN are gone, but most people have broadband internet nowadays anyway. Also, I will say that the transition from Starcraft Broodwar to Starcraft II was much better than the leap from Halo CE to Halo 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review on the Collector Edition Pack August 5, 2010
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I already wrote a detailed review of the actual gameplay in the war zone known as the Standard Edition (SE) - which was a mistake I can't take back. But I wanted to separate the two because someone looking to buy the Collector's Edition (CE) wants to know if it is worth it to spend the extra $40. Ultimately that depends on each person, but I can at least share my views of what I think of the CE.

..:::USB Dog Tag:::..
.....................
This is one good looking custom USB thumb drive and solidly constructed. It is 2GB and over 700MB is used by the original StarCraft (SC) and Brood War (BW) installs. I was kind of praying the games were pre-installed on the thumb drive and I could just plug it in and play off the thumb drive ...but oh well. :) When you plug the thumb drive into your machine the install window pops up. It will auto-populate its CD Key into the install screen, but if you already have SC1 and have the CD Key handy you can use your old SC1 key instead and save the CD Key on the thumb drive for a friend/family member.

The orange portion of the USB Dog Tag lights up with a very cool, calm orange glow. LEDs use very little power so don't worry about that. Some people are sensitive to lights so that might not be a plus to them. I find it very cool and if I was able to use thumb drives at work I would use it for sure. There is also a small blue activity light near neck ring that shows when it is in use or transfering data. When you use your operating system to safely disconnect the usb thumb drive all LEDs turn off letting you know it is no longer in use and safe to disconnect. You can wear it around your neck with same metal beads you'd expect with a real dog tag.

5.0 out of 5 stars More of the same, but the same is awesome August 3, 2010
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
was a fan of Starcraft and Brood War but I only ever played the campaigns (meaning I didn't play online). Still, they were fun, well-balanced games that told a pretty decent story. Now, finally, 12 years after comes the long-awaited sequel.

First off, this game is gorgeous. I have a four-year old system that I constantly upgrade components on. I have a 1g graphics card (middle of the line from 2009) and high-end power supply that I upgraded last year, along with 4 gigs of memory on WinXP. Even with that much memory I still run into the occasional message that my graphics have been turned down due to memory loss, so be forewarned--the 'autotune' settings will run well, and the game will look good, but they will use everything your system has. As I said though, the game itself is beautiful. I've seen three of the cutscenes so far and they compare with any CG movie out there (plus, they're very exciting--particularly the ones that haven't been released in the ads yet).

The gameplay is where it's down-graded just a bit, as it's pretty much exactly the same as SC. I suppose that's to be expected from a sequel, but I expected at least some of the RTS innovations that have come along since then to have been applied here (i.e. longer building queues, technology 'stealing', waypoints systems for movement) and really there is nothing new. There are a couple of new units that are cool, and as mentioned before, they all look amazing.

The storyline itself is presented in a Knights of the Old Republic style where you have a ship that acts as your "base" that you can move between levels, select specific technology upgrades and talk to other members of your "crew" for backstory or new missions. It's not exactly innovative, but it's done well, with Blizzards usual eye for detail.
