StarCraft 1 multiplayer is more customizable than wc3 I'm pretty sure. And I think sc2 should be the same.

Also, I don't think it's such a great idea to split the series into 3 parts.
About the three parts, They didn't split the game into three parts. Wings of Liberty comes with a massive 30-mission campaign with over an hour of cutscenes.

They have simply already announced the two future expansion packs which will retail for much less than 59.99.

Not buying it until someone releases a crack that enables LAN multiplayer.

The original Starcraft required a LOT of clever thinking and knowledge of all the units and had great visuals / music / playability - something that's, unfortunately, entirely missing from most other RTS titles.

Dunno yet whether I purchase it - unfortunately, there're a lot of titles (even WC3, along with Total Annihilation) that simply don't engage me. I stop playing these titles after 5-10 minutes. I become addicted only to very few titles. One of them was the original Starcraft and, then, Brood War - I was among the first to purchase them on the same day of the release, back in 1998. I think I'll spend some hours with a friend's installation to see whether the new sequel is as engaging (for me) as the original was before actually spending the $99 for the Battle Chest edition.

Wiki makes starcraft 2 sounds like the original with better graphics, that's it. No new units (actually some deleted ones, complete disappointment), no new concepts except a few skills you activate here and there, still same old story, same characters. -.-
I was actually excited over this, but unless wiki is completely wrong which I doubt, looks like no need to get it.
Hope Diablo 3 isn't a disappointment.

I'm enjoying the campaign so far - just 3 missions in.

Don't really care for the multiplayer (partially because I wouldn't last against most decent/good players)
