This was the first reaction I’d had when I first saw the high quality gameplay preview video, and I’m sure most of you understand! For 20 whole minutes, I was reminded of what it felt like to play StarCraft for the first time, and was ecstatic that I’ll have the chance to repeat the same experience again, almost 10 years later.
The graphics and style look sharp. The cartoon feel is always present, but doesn’t interfere with the serious atmosphere of the game. The havok physics engine is a welcome addition to the StarCraft universe, and while we only got a glimpse of its implementation in the game, I’m sure it’ll have a great impact on visuals and gameplay.
If anyone had a doubt that StarCraft 2 will be able to capture the feeling of the original, I believe they are now satisfied. Blizzard has shown that they were able to translate the essence of StarCraft into a modern day 3D engine, and give us a worthy sequel.
