Over the last 10 years that I first installed STARCRAFT I have replayed it countless of times. Every time a new overhyped game disappoints me, this is one of the games I pull out of my library to be reminded what a GREAT PC GAME LOOKS & PLAYS LIKE! (others include UNREAL, BALDUR's GATE, GRIM FANTANGO and SHOGUN:TOTAL WAR)

Everyone has his/her favorite RTS and no one can claim that STARCRAFT introduced the futuristic RTS genre (that would be DUNE). Nevertheless, the great, crisp and clear graphics, the balanced units and the strategic terrain all contributed into turning STARCRAFT into a true classic. This is a game that passed the test of time, not only because its aging graphics are still acceptable but also because it is one of those games that stays with you. Forever.

So, the next time some gaming industry MBA (who probably could not tell an RTS from an cRPG) tables the idea of LIMITED INSTALLATIONS, what he will have primarily accomplished is to have his game forgotten within a year.

Do all you need to do for the week before you begin this game. Be ready for the sleepless nights. You will not be able to get yourself off the computer for many hours. This is one of the best real-time strategy games ever. No wonder that Blizzard do not hurry to release StarCraft 2.

Besides playing against the computer, you can compete with your friends over the LAN or with the whole world over the Internet.

The game is flexible and does not demand a lot of the resources. It will run smoothly on virtually any PC (Windows 95 and newer) or MAC (System 7.6 or higher).
Also, the game runs perfectly well on Windows XP.

Until they finally release Starcraft II, this is still a game worth playing. And when they do release Starcraft II, you best play this game beforehand...you wouldn't want to miss out on the story.

Bought this for my husband who suddenly had a burning desire to play it again & realized his copy was loaned to a friend that never returned it & moved away. I think it was a good price, and hubby loves playing it, so definitely worth it. Didn't feel like seeking out gaming shops to find it, which is why I love the convenience of Amazon so much.

Revolutionized the genre with the right recipe of strategy, fun, truly amazing graphics, music, diversity in races strengths.
Countless possibilities, some of best game cinematics ever.
I cannot think of a single flaw in this game.

No matter how old this gets, the graphics always look pristine. It's pretty much the father of all (good) RTS games. If you want to buy a starcraft, but this and brood war, not the second edition garbage. Must have for a pc gamer!

Not a bad game until it wiped out part of my system. Its a known problem with Blizzard and a real pain to fix. After spending hours trying to restore and fix everything I decided this game is not worth the trouble.

This game has always been great and will remain so for years to come. It cost less than 5 bucks so if you want great value for a great game than buy it from amazon. No problems with it whatsoever.

This game is great. Even though it is pretty old, it is still a super sick game to play. Fun and challenging. and if it's too hard you can use cheats to help you. Good fun.
