It’s so easy to find tips and strategies on the Internet, even for mediocre video games, and it’s even easier to find help online for popular games like StarCraft II. So why would anyone pay for Diamond Gamer’s StarCraft II guide? Two things – the company promises a very comprehensive guide, but more importantly, the knowledge is delivered via a program that can be used within StarCraft II.
Before I go any further, I have to admit that I have not played a single second of StarCraft II so I’m not really sure if Diamond Gamer’s add-on is worth it. That being said, not having to switch between the game and your browser, text or pdf guide is a pretty neat idea and should make it easier to practice. You can even watch embedded videos while playing.
Here’s Diamond Gamer’s demo video:
As you saw in the guide, you can order the add-on (Windows-only) at Diamond Gamer’s website for $47(USD). The price isn’t so bad, it’s still within the range of video game guides, plus the software will be updated to keep up with latest developments in StarCraft II. What do you guys think? Is it worth it, or will players be fine with free guides?
