Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty from Blizzard Entertainment. The real-time strategy game continues the story of the Terrans, Zerg, and Protoss with an expanded single player campaign, and features all new units and strategies for multiplayer fans to explore.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

There are numerous new features that make StarCraft II easily worth the purchase. The new matchmaking system on Battle.Net, for example, allows you to quickly find a match around your skill level, places you in a league, and gives you the ability to have separate rankings for team play depending on the teammate you're using at the time. This greatly enhances the multiplayer experience for those under pro level, as they generally get matched up against players that are closer to their level of skill. It also prevents the "ganking" done by experienced players who pretend to be new, as their record would place them in leagues outside of the beginner rankings.

In addition, the single-player campaign is easily one of the best ever found in a strategy game. There are 3D cutscenes before and after every mission, upgrades that can be researched or purchased depending on your success in the missions you choose to take, achievements for various challenges along the way, meaningful difficulty levels, an optional mini-campaign, and even a few splits where you have to pick one mission over the other. Everything about the campaign feels polished, and it would be good enough to stand by itself as a full-fledged game. The fact that it's only one-third of the SC2 trilogy is the only drawback, as the campaign leaves you on a note where you just want to see what comes next. You'll still have to wait, though, as the next game/expansion looks like it won't be out for at least a year.
