StarCraft (SC) is a real-time strategy (RTS) computer game introduced by Blizzard Entertainment in 1998. It is similar to Blizzard’s previous hit Warcraft II, except that it has a space opera setting as opposed to a high fantasy setting. StarCraft is praised for being a benchmark of RTS for its depth, intensity, and balanced races.
The main storyline of the game revolves around a war between three species.
- The Protoss – race of humanoid religious warriors.
- The Zerg’s – Insects + Aliens.
- The Terrans – Earths escaped prisoners.
It was initially released for Windows however later it was added on Macintosh and Nintendo 64. A sequel of StarCraft 2 was released on May 2017. Followed by StarCraft: Remastered. And Blizzard will release a graphics pack for this remastered version.

StarCraft improved upon its predecessor Warcraft II, which featured two very similar playable factions, by introducing asymmetry between the units and technologies available to its three races (Protoss, Terran, and Zerg). After all, this asymmetry was similar to that pioneered in the lesser-known 1996 SSI release War Wind.

The unit types available to each race define its racial identity. The Protoss can field powerful and expensive warriors and machinery. For example, the Zerg count on sheer numbers and speed to overwhelm their opponents.
The Terrans are the versatile and flexible alternative to both races in addition, with an emphasis on specialization and combined arms. Meanwhile, The Terran is the “in-between” race. Subsequently, they tend to benefit from more moderate conditions. Apparently, the other two races tend to prefer one extreme or the other. Overall this can make it difficult to create maps that are fair for all races.
In short, it is a gesture from the company to the fans and not a mod. To sum it up, StarCraft is one of the most favourite gaming series for ’90s gamers. The new graphics look like this.
