Summary

An amazing game by all standards.

The Good

Ah, finally! The most noteworthy RTS in years!

This game has some of the most spectacular graphics in an RTS to date. The movies are clearly directed by a professional and (unlike the C&C series) add to the game so much it seems almost lacking without them. The music is simply marvellous, and the AI is much better than in most games too. The storyline is very good and so are the campaigns, and the game itself is really good - the only game I consider better, in fast, is Dune II.

Oh, and the internet play is very good (no 3rd party plugins and crap).

The Bad

Well, the music is kindof repetitive (although very good) and the Protoss campaign is kind of annoying. And the ending movie really sucks :-)

The Bottom Line

The best RTS since Dune II. Get it, play it and love it.
