Starcraft 2

Ever heard of the new Starcraft? The Starcraft II?

If you’re a Starcraft player, I bet you’ve hear about much awaited yet mysterious Starcraft II. Up until now, Blizzard Entertainment has been keeping Starcraft players excited about the sequel of the award-winning Starcraft.

About Starcraft II:

Let me refresh you about Starcraft. Starcraft is a strategy video game that became popular around 7 to 8 years ago. In the old Starcraft, there were three races vying for domination of the Starcrafft universe. And so the epic begins under that storyline.

Starcraft II is the continuation of the Starcraft saga. The three races – the rebel human Terrans, the noble Protoss, and the gruesome Zergs will again meet and try to spill each other’s blood on in the Koprulu Sector on a battle that is meant to annihilate each other.

Of course, players are at the lookout for old units that became their favorite and for additional units that will make the battles in Koprulu more interesting and diabolical. According to Blizzard, a large portion of the units will be returning while some will be morphed into their upgrades. Moreover, new units will also be deployed.

In the new Starcraft, the first Trilogy will feature the Terrans and so I find it worthy to review the units of the Terrans.

So here it goes…

Crucio Siege Tank:

The Crucio is an upgrade from the old Arclite. The old Arclite was reinforced by building a turret and a hull. The aim of which is to increase the unit’s chances of survival in an open battlefield. The turret’s layout was upgraded from what the Players have experienced in the old Starcraft. It has now an assault-mode armament that increased the protection of the Crucio. The upgrades made in the Crucio accounts for the increase in the cost of the unit.


Nomads are upgraded Terran Dominion who gives much lower levels of protection to the Terran outposts. It is also because of cost consideration that the Terrans decided to build nomads. By building nomads, the Terrans were also able to cut on costs since they do not need to man the nomads with local civilians.

Nomads serve as the defense units of the Terrans against cloaked or burrowed enemy units. They are equipped with delicate sensors that are used for surveillance of terrains for enemy units that are threats to the race. Nomads are effective against the Zerg’s Banelings and Hydralisks.

Terran Battle Cruiser:

Most of the battle cruiser designs were retained in the Starcraft II with only minimal upgrades like the old Behemoth-class battlecruiser. The design of the Hercules and the Minotaur ships were retained with the signature hammerhead shape as well as the Terran Battle cruiser.

Two additional weapons were installed in the Terran Battle Cruiser: the Yamato cannon and the Plasma torpedoes. The Yamato cannon utilize a magnetic field to expel an energy

that can trigger a nuclear explosion. On the other hand, the Plama torpedoes releases a deluge of fire. However, great sum of energy is needed by the Battle Cruise to release a plasma torpedo.
