Product Shot 1 The Pros:Multiplayer action. Full storyline with 3 playable species. Low system requirements means any computer can run.

The Cons:Shorcut controls are clunky by modern standards. Bot AI is terrible in a balanced situation. Protoss towers in the hands of veterans make the game seem unbalanced.

The first game in the Starcraft duo, you are put in control of 3 different races, Terran (humans), Protoss (aliens), and the Zerg (evil aliens). Each of these races have their own set of units, building, and upgrades that you can deploy in real time strategy combat.

Omar: #starcraft I remember playing this game 8 years ago when I was in high school. I beat both the Terran and Zerg missions, and made it until level 7 of the Protoss campaign until I had to start using cheats. I still thought I was pretty darn good, so when my friend challenged me to a network game I was pretty cocky. This was my first experience in what pain the Internet can bring. Very quickly I realized how horribly I sucked as I was Zerg and barely had any units made before my friend came down upon me with the wrath of 3 Yamamoto ships. I never played Starcraft again.
