Blizzard. I love the games but come on. Their games are the same just with better graphics (Looking at you SC2) Their hardly any changes to their games and if some other developer try this they would get ***** out. But since this is blizzard, the creator of WoW (hate this game) no one can talk bad about them.
I'm sorry, but your comment about Starcraft 2 is completely absurd. It sounds like you haven't even played it.
For one thing, the gaming community was adamant that SC2 would not "fix what isn't broken" about SC1. There was basically no, or a negligible voice saying that SC2 should radically alter the way it handles the RTS genre.
So, SC2 keeps the core gameplay concepts, which indeed in SC1 were not broken and didn't need fixing, but with a respectable graphical upgrade, but mostly a HUGE, MASSIVE interface upgrade. It is incredibly more user-friendly, and generally modernized. And the WoL campaign is pretty enjoyable, despite the smug, arrogant cries for a better storyline. (This is Blizzard. Their games are not about fancy shmancy storylines, they're but epic and fun.)
Back on topic...
Koei is a stubborn, racist company. They snubbed the strategy crowd, not to mention the english-speaking crowd.
