Interesting, not sure what to make of it. I've only played WoL so far and it was definitely worth it.
Hmm, assuming my laptop can cope with it I might have to give that a go. I did love the original (which I've got somewhere to now since they gave it away free recently)
I have yet to play SC 2 and this really has been salivating. I keep waiting for a catch.
Seeing as it's blizzard I'm sure it will run fine even on a hamster wheel.

In Co-Op mode, your commanders can gain levels, up to level 15. They get certain unlocks as they level up which gives them more power, more versatility, or more infrastructure value. So it's a pretty typical free-to-play move by Blizzard - you get a few commanders that you can play and level up all the way, then for all the others you can only get part of the way, so hopefully you'll want to finish your collection and will pay to get them their ten more levels each. I would imagine that you can't really pull your weight in serious co-op play if you aren't well-levelled.
Come on. That is a demo version, not "free to play".

I am not saying I don't appreciate Blizzard making 1/3 of the Starcraft 2 single-player campaign free to play, but then that is not really different how back in 1993 id Software made the first episode of Doom free, and you had to pay for episodes 2-3.

Wait, but when WOL game out it was released as a full separate game, as was the plan for all three factions, and WOL is what you are getting here, not the WOL demo, the full game.
And to think I actually paid full price (which was ridiculously high by the way) for Wings of Liberty when it was first released. "Free" is a much more appropriate price point :D

Lol why? I felt it was it was a very good single player experience. And the trails to prepare you for online play was a very nice touch. I only felt sorry for the Starcraft fans who don't like to play terrain. Though there are 3 or 4 protoss missions.
