Don't call me a heretic, but I somehow missed Starcraft 1. When I found out about it, it was too late for me, as I hate going back to older games, except a couple of favourites. But seeing as it was one of the greatest games ever, this is a must on my list.

Every time blizzard releases a game its automatically the best game ever ;)

just look at WoW.. their first attempt at the mmorpg market and it took over the world.

Blizzard cant fail

I just buy their games without even looking at reviews or anything because you know it will be the best.

www.starcraft2.com can satisfy your demands!

Yeah I'm pretty excited about this. Once they revealed that they were working on it I knew the game that would finally break my WoW addiction was coming. Well...we'll see anyway. :p

I guarantee there's going to be millions of Starcraft 1 fanboys saying the game is **** soon after it comes out.

Personally I didn't like Starcraft 1 at all. I bought the game right near when it came out. I didn't like the character design (reminded me of Rare's N64 work, ala Blast Corps). I didn't really dig the gameplay (Myth 1 is still my fav RTS). I especially didn't like the 2d graphics (call me a graphics *****).

Haven't posted in awhile, but Myth 1 was no RTS, graphics aside it was pure garbage.

Starcraft was a great game, personally though the first few C&C games were more fun then Starcraft.

Myth 1 wasn't a RTS? You're not thinking of Myst right?

Myth WAS a RTS, one of the best ever, and certainly my favorite.

Huh? Myth was an awesome RTS, and even had a good story to go along with it.

I do think he was thinking of Myst, only way I can see someone making that mistake.

2D graphics were the norm for RTS games back then. Only Total Annihilation had 3D graphics and even then the ground was 2D.

Myth had 2d sprites on 3d backgrounds, but Starcraft felt like it could have done a lot more for the time (to me). I mean, Myth came out about a half a year earlier.

It's a pretty common mistake based on just the names, no harm done.

If I remember correctly Myth had some pretty high system requirements, for the time anyway. I think it ran like crap on my system. Then again, so did Total Annihilation :).

I can't remember for sure, but I think my computer when I first tried the Myth demo was pretty bad. Pentium 75MHz, but I had a Pure3d Voodoo1. I think it ran OK.

Myth was amazing. Love blowing up with bodyparts flying and blood all over.

With SC2, Blizzard will create a new RTS hit of course. But it wont take any risks, it will be classical gameplay. But Blizzard do this well, they don't innovate, they just make good games.

Also the graphic requirements will be pretty low for SC2, they want all to be able to play it. One thing that I think lacks in the videos is that units that are killed blow up in spectacular fashion and leave debris/parts that look cool. But then they dissapear into the ground just a few seconds later leaving no trace of an epic battle. It just looks to clean again afterwards.

I don't really get why people say this. Very little has been revealed about the gameplay of SC2 other than that they are trying to maintain the delicate balance between the three races. Also how can you sit there and say Blizzard is not innovative? WC3 and WoW were breaths of fresh air for their respective genres, and the original SC and WC2 were hardly slouches either.

The Graphics are a disappointment :thumbdwn:
From the videos it looks like Warcraft 3 on steroids :thumbdwn:

Can't Blizzard create a graphic engine that provides more realistic graphics
