Anybody got this game yet? The price (£34.99) has put me right off, as has the "you need to be online to play it" shite, even if it's you vs the computer :roll: It looks great judging by the Youtubes I've seen but I think I'll wait til the price drops below £20 and they dump that online crap. I went through that with Half Life 2 - Orange Box and it's fine til you can't connect to the HL server. Makes me think some of these games might benefit from a dongle :D

I'll admit if I had a PC capable of running such a game - I'd buy it. It looks like a lot of fun, but I hope it wasn't as difficult as the original. That game got brutal during the Zerg and Protoss campaigns. And you may not believe it, but £35 for a game isn't a bad price at all. Around these parts, you'd be looking at £40.

But these days, I'm into console gaming - no hardware updates needed every few years, no checking the back of the box for requirements, no DRM, no Battlenet - just pop in the disc and play a lag-free game.

I might buy it at some point, but am rather cash strapped now.
