GD Star Rating
At the time of this article, StarCraft is 10 years and 10 months old, yet far away from being abandonware. In the past week, Blizzard has released an official patch, probably making it the oldest updated game and last Thursday UC Berkeley started teaching StarCraft courses to its students.. Given the recent buzz, here is GameGoldie’s review of StarCraft!
This is a real-time strategy game like Age of Empires, Command & Conquer and some of the other titles, such as the Warcraft series, that Blizzard has produced. You play one of 3 races: the humanoid Terrans, the bug-like Zerg or the reptilian Protoss. Each race has its own advantages, with unique units, graphics and personality. There’s actually a fairly well-developed storyline for the game in the players’ guide, with histories of each race and run-downs of the characters you’ll encounter in the campaigns. The setting is 24th-Century futuristic, after Earth citizens have burned themselves out and have migrated to other parts of the galaxy. They run into the Zerg and the Protoss while fighting for planetary dominance on the Galactic Rim.
