Despite the same gameplay mechanics, $15 is a small price to pay for a remastered edition. If this is your first time, you won't want to pass this up.
In summary, Starcraft: Remastered has given the long living Brood War eSports scene the tools to maintain itself for even longer, dedicated servers are tribute to its dedicated fan base and the Korean scene. I respect Blizzard for their decision on this part. Its an amazing gesture for their hardcore fans.
We're currently at a time where remasters of classic games are becoming rather commonplace. Contrary to the practices of developers that make adjustments to the original experience to make it more palatable for the current generation, Blizzard played the role of an art restorer, being careful with their strokes to preserve the original and touching up the masterpiece known as Starcraft: Brood War in a way that is sure to garner the attention and appreciation of new fans all across the world.

Starcraft retains its seat in the high pantheon of genre defining games.
StarCraft remains a title that excels nearly twenty years later. A few technical and aged related quirks aside, this will probably be the best RTS released this year. If you call yourself an RTS fan, this is a must buy.
StarCraft Remastered feels like a labor of love. It keeps everything that the fans considered important and improves everything else. If you can excuse its almost 20 year old gameplay, it remains rewarding even today.

StarCraft Remastered is a true test of time and although the original still works well today, the remastered version is a fun experience. Sure, it's a little clunky here and there but Blizzard have really brought the game into the 21st century, especially with its revamped graphics that look glorious, not to mention multiplayer updates. All in all, it's a fun trip down memory lane that just highlights the memories again and for those who have never played it before, it will allow them to experience what all the Terran, Zerg and Protoss fuss was all about.
Starcraft Remastered reminds to us why the original RTS was the king.

All in all, I can't understand the point of StarCraft: Remastered. I see that it's much prettier, and people with high-res displays will be able to run it in all its glory. The problem is that there is no real glory, and the one that's left exists only in the minds of the people that played the original. It's not a particularly bad remastering of a cult game, but it's almost futile.
