StarCraft II is the sequel to the highly successful StarCraft, which was first released in 2021. In contrast with its predecessor, StarCraft II is an open source mod which allows players to develop their own strategy and build their very own empire. The new version of StarCraft II has been out for about six months and is already enjoying great popularity both among casual gamers and by pro-gamers. Unlike the first version where your race did not matter, in the latest version you will be able to select Terran, Zerg, Protoss, and Terran as your race. As your race develops, you'll be faced with missions and storyline challenges, each of which will have a deadline.
One of the most exciting aspects of StarCraft II is the use of a "strategy map", which allow the user to zoom through the game's various stages and observe the overall progress of the storyline, the level progression and the balance of power. In addition to being able to zoom in and out of the action, the strategic map can also be changed and updated at any time. Another exciting component of the game is the unit creation system, where players can choose from one of four unique races - Terran, Zerg, and Protoss. These four races each have specific units that have special abilities and are only available to them. For example, Terran units have repair facilities, which make them a viable choice compared to the other races.
To conclude, StarCraft II is one of the best online RTS games to be released in years. It has excellent graphics, excellent audio, and an extremely well balanced game play system. The major improvements to the interface and the add-ons have increased enjoyment and allowed users to spend more time actually playing instead of spending time waiting for the in-game timers. I hope you enjoyed reading this quick overview of StarCraft II and look forward to playing when it becomes available for purchase from blizzard entertainment.
