Screenshots look like VB was to Fallout 1 and 2 - i.e. a 3d replica. I like that.

Very... WC2 - WC3 transition. I fear for heroes though.

I really hope that that was an early mistake. Otherwise it's CnC3 revisited except in space and much worse.

All blizzard's games run on low spec machines, this is one of the reasons I like them. Any prettiness tends to come from the artwork/design, which is harder to get an idea of in screenshots.

Though, yeah, it does look like WC3. The plot/campaign will be the thing I buy it for, though.

Download the teaser cinematic. It's pretty cool in a visual sort of way. And the final line is fucking right.

However from an "immersive" point of view it's fucking stupid. If it takes five minutes to suit up every marine what happens if a base is raided? It'll be like five hours before they're ready to defend themselves.

Also the introduction of this new hero angers me. Jim Raynor, please.

I explains their long buildtimes icon_wink.

I absolutly freaking love Starcraft 1 both for story and gameplay so this is probably the best day of 2007 for me icon_joy icon_dance icon_joy icon_dance.

The graphics have WC3 style indeed but they are much more detailed and as it has been pointed out before, it isnt a bad thing that it can run on older machines and Blizzard usually aim for that.

Well, your graphic card needs some Shader 2.0 support.

the website is quite impressive:

Looks like shit. Same as Starcraft, just in 3D. Let's pay for same fucking thing again? No way. The units look cartoony, read shitty, not to mention the new ones suck.

Wikipedia wrote:
Protoss

* Colossus: A large quad-legged vehicle that fires strong dual lasers. Shown in the video destroying a large wave of Zerglings. This unit can also traverse differences in terrain height.
* Immortal: Replaces the dragoon. Strong defense against powerful attacks, but vulnerable to weaker attacks. [5]
* Mothership: A powerful flying unit which consumes an extreme amount of resources to produce, but is a unique unit (1 at a time). Has the Timebomb ability, which slows all enemy missile attacks, and the Earth Cracker, a large laser that obliterates anything in its path, in the style of Independence Day. Also has an ability to create a black hole. Looks like a floating sand dollar.
* Phase Prism: A dual-purpose unit, able to transport units or act as a mobile pylon. [5]
* Phoenix: Can overcharge guns for multiple projectile blast, but after blast the ship is rendered inert for a short period.
* Stalker: A dragoon-like unit of the dark templars, able to teleport and deliver ranged attacks. [5]
* Warp Ray: Flying unit that deals damage with a blue laser that does more damage as it focuses on the same target. Good versus buildings, weak against small arms fire.

Protoss is fucked, don't know about the other races.
