FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

What do these ratings mean?

Three enter and only one remains!  *Mu-hahahaha!

I remember getting this game at a book sale in High School; all my friends thought I wasted my money.  There loss was my gain.

While they spent time at dances, dated girls, got to second base, and had their first hummer... I was playing this wonderful slice of nerdism.

Basically put, this game rocks and even though it’s old, it still shines brightly against some of the newer, sparkly RTS.

Sparkles...

Basically the plot goes as follows... Three races, Terrans, (The future descendents of all the NRA/White Supremist of the Deep South.) The Protoss (The Aszguard from SG:1) and the loveable Zerg, (I would have picked a better name, not something from a 1940's SCI-FI flick).

Each race has strengths and weakness. The Terrans are adaptable, the Protoss have tech-no powers and Psi-abilties.  The zerg are just plain cool, all organic, like a bee or ant colony from Hell on steroids, and with hemorrhoids for irritability.

 The storyline is short, with little plot twist and neat FMVs thrown in to add to the immersion of the game. All the plotlines intertwine, making the game feel have more depth and you can actually develop a sense of companion with some of the characters.

Still the graphics and sound need work.  The graphics don't hold a candle to some of the newer RTS games out there, and the music selection could have been better.  While I do enjoy the southern inspired soundtrack for the terrans.

The protoss' whishy-chior music gets old and repetitive very fast....

I loved the voice acting, the actors really got into their parts, plus the digital blending of the protoss' voice is a nice touch.

Where this game has its diamond in the rough, is the multiplayer. People to this day are still spending their late nights playing clan battles on servers that are overloaded with players.  This game has excellent multiplayer ability and that alone makes it work the super-cheap price tag.

With graphic problems, short 1st player campaigns, and mediocre sound... This game is still a fun relic from the past.  Enjoy it while it last, and maybe someday, Blizzard will rediscover this game and send out a newer StarCraft for us all to enjoy.
