Been playing the single mode game so far, and all you really need to do is mass troops and attack with everything at once. There really is no "strategy". Maybe multiplayer will be different.

I still can't get it to run on a vanilla installation of 10.6.4 on a 2 year old Macbook Pro. It partially downloads the updates and the launcher app just hangs there with a menu bar and nothing else. Ironically, it runs great in Boot Camp in Windows 7 64bit...

I can't imagine playing Starcraft without a right click. Not trying to jab or anything.
