Take your game to the next level
Starcraft II is the long awaited sequel to the strategy game Starcraft. Starcraft revolutionised the strategy game world with each and every ‘character’ or soldier able to advance in level on its own. Produced by Blizzard, famous for games in the strategy and roleplaying genres, Starcraft II offers just what gamers are looking for – better graphics, better game play and an almost endless gaming experience. We review the game and its tactics.
StarCraft II is split into three installments: the base game with the subtitle Wings of Liberty, and two expansion packs, Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void. The real time strategy (RTS) game has excellent cinematography and audio with an immersive single-player experience. The good news is that Blizzard made sure that the game is still playable even on a low-spec PC without sacrificing much of the detail. The campaign offers a lot of variety and there is extensive choice given to the player resulting in a lot of replay and value for money.
Surprisingly, there is no LAN (networking) ability for multi-player gaming but has online connectivity support to play against opponents from all over the world. The game only features one campaign but with significant variety in game play, the game is far from a one note wonder. The Battle.net system has caused Blizzard to come into some very heavy criticism from players worldwide. Users have also complained of privacy issues with the RealID system forcing you to input your real details and taking away your anonymity.
