Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
Where competitive RTS gaming began.
I will start talking about this in my review of Brood War, but as for now lets concentrate on the story and gameplay of this classic game.
The story starts off with you playing as Terran helping Marshall Raynor to defend Mar Sara from the engaging attacks from the unknown alien race later known as the Zerg. The entire campaign is spent in disarray, having no idea what lurks in the darkness.
Later on you have your first encounter with the powerful and mystic Protoss, who have been sent to eradicate the Zerg, and so more confusion starts. The entire Terran campaign is spent in betrayal, anger, and disarray, and the worst part of all, Kerrigan gets captured by the Zerg.
When heading over to the Zerg campaign, things start to become a bit clearer. You begin to understand where the Zerg came from, and what their intentions were, and why they captured and infested Kerrigan. The campaign ends with the destruction of Aiur, the Protoss homeworld.
Last, but not least you play the Protoss campaign. Now you begin to realize why the Protoss came into the picture in the first place. They were made out as enemies at first, but in truth, they were the ones who wanted to stop the Zerg before they could muster their forces. Many attempts of the Protoss failed at first, before realizing that their only hope is to end ancient fueds with former comrades... the Dark Templar.
The game ends with the destruction of the Overmind. A very noble sacrifice made by the High Templar Tassadar, ended the reign of the Overmind... but the story has yet to continue, as no one knows what happened to Kerrigan, nor her Zerg Broods.
The story continues in Brood War
