StarCraft (incl. Brood War)
StarCraft

StarCraft is a military science fiction real-time strategy game launched on March 31, 1998. The player is required to build a virtual base and army with which he can attack and overcome his opponent. Although mission goals may differ in the campaign, in competitive play the objective is to destroy all enemy buildings. However, in most games a player can concede by typing "gg" and leaving the game when his losses can't be overcome.

A player can pick one of three unique Races with which to play: The Protoss, Zerg and Terran. All three races have their own qualities and weaknesses as well as units, abilities and gameplay mechanics.

Player activities can be divided in two categories: macro and micro. Macro includes the gathering of resources and making buildings and units. Micro involves the control of the army or individual units.

Brood War

StarCraft: Brood War is the expansion pack for StarCraft. Released in 1998 for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS, it introduced new campaigns, maps and map tilesets, music, extra units for each race, and upgrade advancements. The campaigns continue the story from where the original StarCraft ended, with the sequel StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty continuing from the conclusion of Brood War. The expansion was released in the United States on 30 November 1998.

Brood War was critically well-received, with reviewers praising it for being developed with the care of a full game rather than as an uninspired extra. As of 31 May 2007, StarCraft and Brood War have sold almost ten million copies combined.
