While it's certainly not the most original property on the face of the earth meaning that elves and orcs and the undead get used so much in fantasy it's like watching a dead horse beat itself , the characters and situations managed to be believable enough in a mature enough story to keep me interested. In January 2001, Blizzard announced the Night Elves as the last race as well as the conversion of demons into a race.
Certain hero abilities can boost allied units. It has since undergone both small and rather large changes to become the final product that it is today. The game relies on many of the real-time strategy conventions you're probably familiar with by now. Talk about staying power: Though Starcraft was released back in 1998, a lot of people still play it. Critics also praised the interface as simple yet powerful and making it very easy for players to effectively control their units.
