In the distant future a small group of human exiles have been doomed to fight for survival on the edge of the galaxy. Through military strength, espionage and deceit, a unified Terran government has maintained an uneasy peace. As resources run short, however, these Confederate nations find themselves looking towards the rich worlds of their alien neighbors, the enigmatic Protoss. To further complicate matters, it seems that a previously unknown and deadly species known only as the Zerg has entered Protoss space and is destroying everything in its path. The time for war has come... As the military leader for your species, you must gather the resources you need to train and expand your forces and lead them to victory. 30 unique missions will challenge you across three different campaigns as you control the fate of the galaxy.

One of my favorites from back in the day. Gotta love the competitive SC play.

Tal: The shelf life of a computer game is nasty, brutish, and short. They have to compete with other titles to squeeze onto some of the few precious slots on retail shelves. They often have less than a month before they slip quietly into oblivion, never to be heard from again. But there are those rare titles that transcend their shelf lives.

If real aliens turn up while you are playing this, they don?t stand a chance of getting your attention.

Strong strategy, great graphics, and variety make this one of the year's best. [July 1998, p.114]

It truly revolutionizes and sets a new standard for real-time strategy games on the PC.

The cinematic animations are outstanding, dramatic and funny. Even the voice-over acting is really good.
96

One of those rare games that is not overly complex, but provides a challenging and fun gaming experience. It never seems to get old or boring.

Another glowing aspect of StarCraft is its absolutely brilliant Campaign Editor. This is the very best make-your-own game interface ever made.

All in all, if you buy StarCraft, you're buying it for the multi-player. The single-player is just too short and disappointing...The game just doesn't live up to the lofty goals of its predecessors, and for that, it suffers.

By virtue of simple, solid gameplay, Starcraft has managed to rise above a predictable approach and been-there-done-that mechanics, and the final product (much like "Warcraft II" in 1995) seems fresh and new.
