Ealier this week Blizzard released Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty, so far we have seen a mixture of opinions from user reviews, however now professional and reputable reviews are coming in.
At the time of this post metacritics unique scoring system has given Starcraft 2 a metascore of 97 out of 100 and a user score of 8.5 out of 10, therefore it would be fair to say that a lot of the other criticism we have seen may be a little unjustified.
JoyStiq scored Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty 100/100, they seem happy that Blizzard kept the strong foundations from the original, whilst bringing the franchise up-to-date with today’s impressive graphical expectations, you can see their full review here.
GamingXP scored the game 94/100, GamingXP and pretty much summed things up with this extract from their review “The long time waiting between “StarCraft” and StarCraft II has not been wasted. Flawless gameplay, great graphics and a bombastic atmosphere result in one of the best real-time strategy games in the world.”
Check out the reviews and then come back and let us know whether you agree with them. Do you think Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty deserves a metascore of 97/100?
