Some quick thoughts about the Starcraft 2 beta

Some quick thoughts about the Starcraft 2 beta:

1. The system requirements, while reasonable, will make the game run slower than people are used to on computers that are a few years old.

2. It's really hard to get mobile anti-air units early on unless you're Terran.

3. The fact that you can't mine depleted vespene geysers is unfortunate.

4. The Zerg might be unbalanced, in the sense that they seem to be weaker than the other two races.

5. Not being able to select an entire group of units and have them all expend minerals (ie, 3 larvae and instantly turning 3 of them into drones) sucks.
