Taking right after the events of StarCraft; the Zerg Overmind is dead, and the Zerg swarms over the war-torn Protoss world of Aiur have run amok without their leader. Only groups of Protoss and Terran survivors remain on Aiur, mainly consisting of Captain James Raynor, Dark Templar Zeratul, Judicator Aldaris, and the newly-elected Praetor Artanis. Without their now fallen leader Tassadar, the Protoss and Terran survivors escape the Zerg to the Dark Templar world of Shakuras; where they plan to rebuild their army and commence their strike upon the Zerg race. Meanwhile, the UED (United Earth Directorate) has come to the Koprulu Sector with plans to neutralize the Terran Empire, now ruled by former renegade Arcturus Mengsk and former Confederate General Edmund Duke; but they are in for more than they expected.

Real Time Strategy's finest (to date!)
6 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

Warcraft and Warcraft II, the predecessors of this game, changed the gaming world forever. Blizzard introduced a whole new genre of PC games.

With Starcraft, Blizzard proved that they could keep on applying their genius towards pushing forward real time strategy games in huge leaps of creativity and intricacy. The game is simply brilliant, from the many ways the races and their respective technologies interact, to the engrossing storyline of the game.

Perhaps most important was the introduction of BattleNet -- an online forum where Starcraft players from around the world have been dueling around the clock for years. If you haven't played this game yet, it's time to check it out.

(Don't forget the expansion pack, and watch for Warcraft III to be released Spring 2002.)
