Ok, so I'm a junkie for Blizzard games from WAAAY back. Diablo 2 was my game of choice for years. I dabble in a bit of WoW now, but L4D2 is my game of choice now. ANYWAY...
Can someone explain to me what the deal with Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty?
I know it only has the Terran single-player campaign, but what about multiplayer... Can you play as Protoss and Zerg?

Hmmm... that certainly makes me want to buy it more. I thought it would be lame to only be able to have Terran vs Terran battles :P The IGN review hardly spoke about using the other armies.

The campaign focuses on Terran. Most likely two expansions are planned to cover the others.

I'm certain they are. You've played it? I was terrible at the original starcraft and RTS in general. My time management skills only stretch to burger shop 2

Watch some of the vids from the youtube channel. It's pro level usually and the commentator is good at pointing out the structure and timing of the builds.

Pretty much. There were complaints from early customers that there was only a Terran campaign, but what they conveniently forgot were the two expansions featuring Zerg and Protoss (each campaign featuring around 30 missions; compare the total 30 missions in SC1 to about 90 in SC2). I also heard that the expansions will have different themes per race; if I recall correctly, Zerg campaign features leveling up in a RPG-esque fashion - should be interesting.
