TGH Writes: "So Blizzard has spent twelve years and $100 million creating StarCraft II. But what they’ve actually done, as you may well be aware by now, is release the first chapter in what is set to be an episodic game. This initial portion, subtitled Wings of Liberty, restricts you to playing a solo campaign as the humanoid Terran, with the Zerg and the Protoss becoming unlocked in two more add-on packs that will arrive in due course. Whether Blizzard will charge a cut price for the expansions or put them out as three complete games is unclear, but I’m pretty certain that StarCraft fans will pay any price to continue this venerable RTS saga, and this new arrival is by no means a third of a game." 4/5
Update The first sentence regarding the cost of the title is a falsity. Please disregard.
