Finally was able to reset my password and DL the game client.
First impression. Really nothing new, well for the genre in this day and age of technology. I really really do not like in-game movies using character models. I would prefer fully rendered and very very pretty movies for cut scenes. I like the lab/cantina/armoury on board the cruiser (cool idea buying upgrades and special units as well as permanent upgrades for your troops) I like the mission select but its not a true mission select, too linear. If you had a galaxy map with worlds and star systems on it and select from that. When you conquer a star system you dont have to worry about it going rogue or other missions (Zerg infestation, Protoss incursion). But, say you own 75% of the planets in a system, the other ones are owned by the Zerg, they can counter attack your owned worlds or use the worlds they own as a beach head to launch an invasion (until you wipe the system clean, incentive to not just take on worlds that give you bonus's) On harder settings this would allow for a more dynamic play field (al la Dune)
Playing on my new AW....and it bogs the system down on medium setting's. I haven't tweaked the programs running yet but will in the near future. Game play isn't anything spectacular, but I like where the story is going so far.
Right now, I am reserving judgement for after I have played for a bit. Right now, not worth the gull 60 buck price tag.
