This will be a great game if they don't turn it into WC3...Blizzard needs to focus less on flashy graphics and more on game play, but I still hold faith in them! Lets hope SC2 will hold true to the SC legend.

I hope so to.

And if not, there'll be an awful lot of angry Koreans out there.

From what I've seen, it also looks like they are not tweaking the formula too much. Sc1 looks really similar to Sc2, in my humble opinion.

Which is a good thing. No need to mess too much with a winning formula.

I think I've become spoiled with recent strategy games, Dawn of War and Company of Heroes being the lead two. The three things that they really got me liking is the cover system and the squad system.

It makes sense that infantry would run for cover if it were available, yes? Are you going to stand and take potshots out in the open or are you going to hunker down behind a burned-out tank nearby and shoot from there?

The squad-based infantry units also make more sense. It just doesn't really make sense for an army commander to say, "I want ONE rifleman. Just one." Likewise, would a commander (who's in charge of masses of infantry, aircraft, and tanks) order a single soldier around?

Capture points are the biggest thing for me. Dawn of War and Company of Heroes allowed me to focus on combat and territory control to gain more resources, not micro-managing my SCVs for more minerals.

*shrug* Either way, I've got Starcraft 2 reserved, and I'll love it either way.

My squads in Company of Heroes got on my nerves. I would tell them to hide behind some cover but there would always be 1 or 2 of them poking out the side getting shot >.>

My friend kind of force fed me SC1 and my first memory of it is being destroyed by a fleet of carriers while wondering what the hell the zerg units did. I'll give SC2 a go though.

It has been a good year for strategy games. Alas, I haven't had a chance to really getting it to the CoH expansion which is too bad, because I enjoy that game.
World in Conflict is a bit different, but I also had a good time with that one.
Haven't even played Dawn of War, which is a shame. Not enough time
Starcraft 2 doesn't look that exciting to me. Too conventional, I think. But that just MHO.

Sometimes I'm happy to go back to the conventional. Too often they have a strategy game with a "twist" that just goes about ruining would could have been a good game.
