Unlike the demo, StarCraft II: Starter Edition offers more content to players: the first four missions from the single-player campaign (including Mar Sara 1-3 and the choice to get on Tychus’s or Dr. Hansen’s first mission), the first two challenges (Tactical Command and Covert Ops), access to the Terran race in Custom games and Single-Player vs. Computer, and access to four different maps.
The good thing about tarCraft II: Starter Edition is that it’ll save any campaign progress and achievements and carry them over to the full version of the game, should you decide to upgrade to it.
Though tarCraft II: Starter Edition lacks lots of content from the original game, it’s still a great way to get started in this epic space adventure. The only thing you’ll need to play tarCraft II: Starter Edition is a free Battle.net account, a broadband Internet connection and a bit of patience to download the almost 7-gigabyte game file.
tarCraft II: Starter Edition is more than just a demo: a nice, fun way to start playing this amazing strategy adventure.
The file you download is Blizzard’s Download Manager, which will download the 7-GB game file to your computer.
