Updated Tue, Oct 14, 2008 by B. de la Durantaye

World of Warcraft wasn't the only game players have been looking forward to hearing about when it comes to Blizzcon 2008. Crowds swelled and lines went on for miles as players from all over rushed to get a sneak peak at Blizzard's upcoming title, StarCraft II. But how does the game feel and play at this early stage in its development? Find out as Benjamin J. de la Durantaye takes us through a Hands-On Preview of StarCraft II.

It seemed as if Blizzard had realized that while it’s important to keep a franchise updated for modern technology, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. The result: a nice, crisp environment, with more 3-dimensional activity.
