The load screens. That’s my primary impression of Starcraft 2. More or less it’s an update of Starcraft with lots and lots and lots of load screens.
I finished the campaign yesterday. The story was okay, though fairly predictable. The cutscenes were decent and enough over the uncanny valley to keep from creeping me out.
I’m looking forward to playing against the AI in skirmishes and some of the special missions look interesting. I doubt I’ll be playing much on Battle.net. The achievements look interesting though I don’t plan to bust my butt to get them.
So far Starcraft 2’s been fun and worth buying. If you enjoyed the original Starcraft, pick this one up.
