Sequels can be risky because some people want unique and innovative changes, while others want the game to stay close to its roots. StarCraft 2 manages to walk that fine line nicely, bringing the franchise into the 21st century graphically and improving the interface while still offering similar core gameplay to the original. The competition on Battle.net is fierce and there are a wealth of multiplayer maps to choose from. Blizzard continues to tweak the faction balance, but you'd have a hard time finding a more finely crafted and beautifully presented RTS game.
