In the distant future a small group of human exiles have been doomed to fight for survival on the edge of the galaxy. Through military strength, espionage and deceit, a unified Terran government has maintained an uneasy peace. As resources run short, however, these Confederate nations find themselves looking towards the rich worlds of their alien neighbors, the enigmatic Protoss. To further complicate matters, it seems that a previously unknown and deadly species known only as the Zerg has entered Protoss space and is destroying everything in its path. The time for war has come...

As the military leader for your species, you must gather the resources you need to train and expand your forces and lead them to victory. Control any of three different species, each with unique units, technologies, attributes, and abilities.

StarCraft is real time strategy game by Blizzard Entertainment which incorporates 3 very different races that fight for supreme rulership. Zerg, Terran, and Protoss all have there own units, buildings and reasons for conquest. Through Battle.Net you can test your skill in multiplayer action over the internet. is another product of Blizzard and is considered to be the biggest online gaming service with reports of over 100,000 users on at a single time.

Terran The Terrans are an adaptable race - they can move quickly between attack and defence. This is reflected in their units. They can also do massaive damage, but specialize at taking big targets one at a time and less so much as dealing with swarms.(not including the nukes)
Protoss The units controlled by the Protoss are expensive, yet powerful. They can take a good amount of damage, and dish out a lot and very good with dealing with swarms.
Zerg Contrary to the Protoss, the units of the Zerg Swarms are weak and cheap. This is why they are best used in massive numbers.

Blizzard has even come out with an add on called Brood Wars. This adds more levels, more units, and a deeper story plot (if you play the single player).
