Starcraft 64; May Game of the Month

Starcraft 64 is a fantastic port. The game is 100% the same, Brood War expansion included, better controls in my opinion (Z+control stick is fantastic for move faster the camera keeping the "mouse pointer" in the middle of the screen, buttons combination are very smart, moving the fingers is easier that moving the whole hand, ecc).
In the PC version you have always to tell to the SCV, Drones, ecc to harvest (very boring), on the N64 version they harvest automatically.
Nintendo 64 version got the funny 2 players mode.
The PC version got the fmvs, better musics, cleaner graphic and above all the online mode.


This is one of the many reasons because N64 is the best console of all times, in fact this is the only Starcraft ever released for console.

The game is also became famous among the collectors because the PAL version is quite rare and very expensive. Some people talk about only 5000 copies released, I don't know if this is true or not.

If you're StarCraft fans, you'll love it.
In order to enjoy it, it's essential to know properly the controls. In fact knowing the buttons' combination, many operations are quicker than the PC version.
The only complain is with micromanaging.
