    I'm sorry, I had to vote 'Good'

    I was a bit surprised it looked like they took the same WC3 engine to make SC2.
    Kind of like how SC used to be on the WC engine. Its still early though, we'll see whats happening. I mean, WC is all cartoon-like, I really really hope they don't take SC2 in that direction.

    Not a complaint by any means but it looks kinda like original SC except with new graphics and units. I hope blizz does something to spice up game play.

    It's not WCIII engine, mate. It's a bit more advanced than that.

    Plus, this time they added real physics to it.

    yea, its WC3 Engine that can withstand massive armies in a screen


    Was really hoping for hybrid units.. or new race in SC2, but they've already announced that the only playable races would be Protoss, Terran and Zerg...


    :(

    Hmm, WCIII's engine can't withstand the massive armies of StarCraft, I'm sure. No way in hell it would withstand 3200 zerglings :p

    The screenshots show supplies of more than 100, so it's not like WC. That's why I say it's more advanced.

    No, not the first time. But, yes, it's a very rare ocasion :D

    Still love my Dark Archon though.

    And it really doesn't look the same. Looks a lot more C&Cish than WCIII.

    still in early stage. From what i was reading it sounds like a LOT will change in the coming months. If none of you remember, WCIII was a hell of a lot different from when it was announced to release. Seriously everything you see now isn't even close to being solid info.

    By all means they could very easily add like 3 more races, because right now they dont have to tell us much of anything about what is happening.

    I think this is the game they won't **** around with, so it might be longer.
