| Another GREAT game from Blizzard!
I first got hooked on StarCraft from my friend. The day after, I ran out and bought it. This game has a great story, great cinematics, and great units from all the races; Terran (Human), Protoss (Alien), and Zerg (bug-like critters).

If you like StarCraft, then I suggest getting the expansion (Brood War). I would be grateful if they came out with a second expansion.

I reccomend, again, that anyone who likes good graphics, real-time combat, great story lines, and sci-fi action get this game!
