GT Trailers have the review up.

Lost of a bit of points due to the way the story is spread out.

I think so. I haven't changed any settings, or even looked at multi yet. I did see we can play on SEA and NA servers?

It's based on ure address in ure b.net account.

SEA users can access NA servers 60 days after launch, but for now we are stuck to SEA.

In your friends tab click add friend, and then u will come to another option area, and the little ! will tell u what ure id number is.

Ping feels same as beta, and beta was connected to US servers...

So i think locking out AU/NZ to SEA at launch was not a wise move.

Honestly, due to the gameplay mechanics and the way units are rendered, AA isn't that big a deal.

I can run 2xAA just fine, but 4xAA with Edge Filtering (12xAA) is pretty unacceptable. Plus it only works in Fullscreen mode, and I like using windowed mode so I can alt-tab whenever I need to. So I just have it turned off until Blizzard actually implements it in game (can't believe they didn't).

I'm about 50% into the single player mode, and I've got to say, this is the best single player RTS I've ever played. It's that good. Better than Warcraft I, II, or III, way better than AoE, and even better than the original Starcraft. Every single mission introduces a new game play mechanic. And it's fun. I haven't had this much fun playing a game in a while. Will certainly buy the expansions for the Zerg and Protoss campaigns.

I agree. Better than DoW II which until now was the best single player RTS I've played.

It's good, but it's too short. There's no way I'm going to pay another $60 for each expansion. They should just let people buy a MP addon for $20 for the new units or something like that.
