From its frankly, ugly, beginning, Starcraft exceeded any expectation that Blizzard fans could have had of the game, delivering one of the smoothest, most well-rounded games to be produced in the history of the RTS genre.
Starcraft also includes more sophisticated commands, such as attack-move, patrolling an area, and movement queues, all of which can be accessed with the mouse on the bottom control panel, or more efficiently through keyboard shortcuts.
What sets the Starcraft campaign apart from other games is that each mission is significant to the storyline; it doesn't feel like you are limited to 12 units just because the game designer wanted variety.
