Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty is what we in the business call a "planet killer." Now that it's launched, be prepared to have your job, relationship, and productivity tested. Here are some of the main reasons you'll wave goodbye to the outside world for a while after immersing yourself in Starcraft II.


1. It's True To The Original


You sit down and play a few matches, alternating between races, when you realize something- you've been here before. Deja vu sets in- the units are different, the graphics are augmented with another dimension, but this is Starcraft. Somehow the people at Blizzard have managed to balance power-armored marines, mutant bugs, and space wizards a second time. Alone in your basement you stand up and applaud. Well done BlizzardÂ…well done. Now finish your Hotpocket and spawn more overlords!
