Trivia

The game has many references and similarities to the science fiction film "Aliens", which includes unit styles, confirmation lines and designs: Terran Marine: "How do I get out of this chickenshit outfit", said by private Hudson, in Aliens; Terran Dropship: "We're in the pipe, five by five", "We're in for some chop", said by the corporal Ferro when approaching planet LV-426; also the unit icon and voice style are similar to corporal Ferro in Aliens; Terran SCV similarly styled to the loader used in the ship's docking bay; Zerg structures are similarly styled to the infested LV-426 colony; Zerg hydralisk unit similarly styled to the xenomorph queen; Terran ship interior, seen in movie sequence, similarly styled to the LV-426 colony.

Quotes

Tassadar: Unfortunate it is, to see that one who was once so honorable and full of life would succumb to the twisted wiles of the Overmind.
Infested Kerrigan: Do not presume to judge me, Templar. You'll find my powers to be more than a match for yours. In fact, I sense that your vaunted power has diminished since last we met.
Tassadar: Mayhap, O Queen. Or is it only that I need not flaunt my power in such an infantile test of will?

Best real-time strategy game ever!
26 November 2000 | by (Troy, NY) – See all my reviews

StarCraft is a real-time strategy game (RTS) set in the early 26th century in the Koprulu Sector at the edge of our galaxy. The balance of power is a stake as three of the most powerful species in the Universe go head-to-head. The nomadic Terrans, brutal Zerg, and stalwart Protoss each seek the ultimate prize: survival of their species and domination of the galaxy. This game is truly a milestone in RTS development. The graphics are great, play control is intuitive, and the storyline is top notch. Blizzard Entertainment takes an interesting approach by telling the story from the perspective of each race in three separate acts. Thus, the events from Act I (Terrans) are then referred to from the other side in Act II (Zerg) and are acted upon. All in all, this game is worth its weight in gold!
