  1. A title which has almost infinite replay value because every time you play it it’s a different game. Even if you repeatedly just play the same map over and over again the variety of things you can do and the impressive AI of the CPU opponents means that it’s never the same game twice.

    A fantastic title that suffers graphically on the console, but still retains everything else that made it so special.
  3. The huge number of levels available and the two-player split-screen mode -- slowdown ridden as it is -- make for an incredible amount of value.
  4. While there isn't much for fans of the popular PC version of Starcraft to get excited about, those new to the series will enjoy engaging, addictive gameplay coupled with an incredibly protracted single player mode.
  5. The game will never live up to the PC version, and the two-player mode (although better than battling on your own), makes a mockery of the fun of the computer's multiplayer capabilities.
  6. 77
    Slick and polished, this game absolutely is not. However, if you forgive and forget its looks, you will find yourself drawn in and addicted in no time.
  7. The game just doesn't measure up to PC standards; it doesn't even come close.
