I gotta hand it to Blizzard though, they made a great remaster and definitely met my expectations. I loved the newly improved multiplayer system and especially the strong community. Despite the lack of improvement with its CGI, StarCraft: Remastered is a remaster done right and it will live another 12 to 13 years before we get a new StarCraft installment.

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 still just as fantastic and compelling to play as it was nearly 20 years ago.

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.

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.

The king that refused to die. StarCraft: Remastered arrives 19 years after its release to challenge nostalgia with a well crafted visual overhaul that doesn't look out of place.

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.
