9 / 10.0

StarCraft remains a titan of the genre for a reason. Though its interface lacks some contemporary conveniences, Blizzard has still, to this day, failed to outdo itself in terms of the elegant balance between three highly asymmetrical factions that was achieved in Brood War. Whether you want to revisit the glory days or see a piece of gaming history for the first time, StarCraft Remastered is a trip well worth taking.

StarCraft Remastered is everything you could expect from a remaster. It is hard and challenging, it requires experience and skills but, above all, it is StarCraft, just as you remembered it. The technical improvements bring a breath of fresh air to a game that continues in top form with almost 20 years of life.

StarCraft Remastered is the old StarCraft with a new coat of paint. This is what the fans wanted, this is what Blizzard delivered. The core gameplay remains insanely good, but a lot of mechanics and UI limitations show the age of the game, especially if compared to StarCraft II.

Buy it if you're still on the Brood War bandwagon. Try the free, old-school version if you're just curious how deep your nostalgia is for the game.
