Summary

The greatest RTS of all time.

The Good

This game is a perfectly balanced affair, yet still managed to have so much differance between the three races. There are no unit equivilents, as with almost all other RTS games, even he more popular ones. There is no doubt in my mind that this is the greatest RTS ever, and that Blizzard have done it again, except much better (and less popular) than the Warcraft series. I can't wait for Starcraft 2.

The Bad

Backstabbers in melee games on battle.net.

The Bottom Line

Go to your nearest retailer and buy this game. But dont stop at that, buy Brood War as well. Because its more of the stuff you are about to fall in love with.
