Anyways, I was honestly gravely dissapointed. I come from an era of playing Warcraft 1/2/3 all multiplayer or lan. Yes you heard me, all the way back to wc1. Played that when I was like 6-7 years old with my older brother. I remember having to upgrade to 16 megs of ram just to play it LOL.
Sc2 was highly anticipated for me when it came out... but maybe I am just getting old, or growing out of RTS titles...but it did not cure the itch for me.
I agree. Wait it out unless you're a huge SC fan, these CE's typically don't sell out so a few months down the road they can be had for pretty cheap. I bought the SC2 CE when it first came out and was kicking myself when I found it clearanced out at Fry's for the same price a regular copy, several months later.
I think with SC2 people were waiting a long time and they were expecting to see some solid enhancements to the system to make it more interesting. Much like how WC1, WC2 and WC3 all added things to make the games more complex from the predecessor. With SC2 it didn't really add anything, many of the units are the same and the only real change is the graphics. WC3 is easily one of my favorite RTS games from them.
