The game is similar, but what would you expect.
Single player after some missions has been simply wonderful and the graphics are very good.
The 'adventure' parts look sometimes quite breathtaking and remind me of Wing Commander and Freelancer.

It would only be plausible, if Terry Makedon didn't say on his Twitter few days before, that he's not aware of any AA issues on ATI cards. So the whole "it hurts performance, we're looking around it" is just pure BS.

The installation recaps SC1/BW. As in while you install this lady terran voice speaks / slide shows / etc so you know pretty much everything as u start sc2

Played Single Player, did the training challenges (btw this part is done really well, gets you to know the counters you should use / etc and macro/micro tips before you hit multiplayer)

As for multiplayer, it is running very smooth, no issues. (Other than the fact that i am in SEA servers )

Blizzard defiantly has a winner here and it will end up replacing SC1.

Btw the mods on this game were incredible in beta, i can't wait to see what the community comes up with. Some of the mods in beta were simply amazing and sometimes even surprising that the engine can do it.

You pretty much always say something on the lines of that. Do you actually like any games at all?

I played some MP against my co-worker and one of my bosses last night. Fun times. I'm installing it on my work PC now so I can play during lunch. My MP skills went down the drain when I stopped playing the beta almost two months ago.

I am really liking the game, but I have a minor annoyance. Any spoken dialogue gets cut off at the end of each line. I dont know if its my system. I have one of those creative xfi xtrememusic cards!!!

remember those old school games like xenon/and side scrolling games? well the builder lets u do those types of games REALLY well, plus a ton of other cool types...even rickrolling ^_^.

also there is a arcade game in the battlecruiser in the cantina! should check it out i had a blast playing it lol

modding/community is going to be very popular in sc2

they demoed a SC Ghost type third person shooter map made in the editor at Blizzcon.
That build only had keyboard input but they said the had gotten mouse look working in a later build.
seems pretty flexible.
