I feel that people have mentioned some of the differences, but from a Starcraft 1 perspective, a large number of things have been overlooked and I've tried to chronicle them here. Worker rallies - one of the first things you will notice is the ability to rally workers to Minerals/Gas and they will immediately begin work (thus reducing your micromanagement) ...

Mostly subjective, really. Some people like CS:S, some people don't. Here are some of the differences. CS:GO has: Smaller hitboxes Less clutter on maps to block movement Tighter recoil (spray and pray does not work well) New weapons (a few pistols, shotguns, smgs, mgs) New grenades (decoy and flame) Better graphics Some actual improvements: Gungame and ...

As of the 1.2 update (November 2013), it's very difficult to compile a full list of the differences, largely because the number of items, enemies, and equipment in the game as a whole is incredibly vast. However, here's a high-level overview: PC The PC version is the "flagship" version of Terraria, and is the version that receives the most frequent ...

Although this is somewhat subjective, i will make a list of things that i like more on SC2 than on SC1. (Warning, spoilers might be found here!): atmosphere - i feel a lot more drawn into the game, all those references to the original story are also very cool + the large amount of ingame cutscenes and even mini-movies are awesome (the one with Zeratul and ...

With respect to gameplay, there were two versions released for the PS2 (an original version and a U.S. version), and one remake for the PS3: U.S. Version Original Version PS3 Remake With respect to language and region code, there were eight releases, including one reprint in Europe coinciding with the release of ...

This NeoGAF thread and this Zelda Wiki page have a pretty comprehensive list of changes, some of which will defy walkthroughs for the original. These are some of the bigger ones: The Swift Sail is a new item that can be obtained from the Windfall Auction. While using it, sailing speed is doubled and the wind is always at your back. The Tingle Tuner has ...

The main difference is that the whole game is flipped, horizontally. In the Game Cube version, Link is left handed (as he was in all previous games). In the Wii version, he is right handed. In order to avoid re-doing all of the graphics in the game, they just flipped the entire game - Lake Hylia is in the southeast corner instead of the southwest corner, if ...

According to Wikipedia, the 3DS version includes the original game (in 3D) and also includes the Master Quest (which is a harder version of the game). It also allows you to use the touchscreen to equip items, and the built in gyroscope to aim items when in first person mode.

Compared to the N64 original, a little over double. The reason for this being the inclusion of the Master Quest, which was not originally available on the N64 version. Although it was released later as part of a special promotion. The world is mirrored in the 3DS version of Master Quest, but everything else is the same as the previously released version. ...

For me, two of the most notable difference is the incorporation of convenient micromanaging features from Warcraft III, such as autocast and smartcast abilities (though to be honest the medic's "heal" from the original Starcraft was also autocast), and a more pronounced difference between the races. Micromanagement features Autocast allows you to toggle ...

I'm able to buy games from the "Games on-demand" store These games are like any other game, but paid with my VISA card and downloaded from the Xbox LIVE service. I do not need to insert a specific game disc to use them, they are available from the "Games library" menu. There ...

Plants vs Zombie is only available on those 3 platforms currently. Since you are already familiar with the PC, I'll go into the other ones. The iPhone version is a bare-bone version of the game, specifically it doesn't have survival mode. It is also missing quite a bit of the bonus games (including the plant garden, the tree of wisdom, as well as the ...

All Civilization V version are basically the same because at the end all have to be registered on Steam, because it implements the Steam DRM. Then could be that some reseller add some exclusive stuff: Steam Standard edition Adds Cradle of Civilization Map Pack: Mesopotamia.

Black Mesa is a fan made total conversion mod of HL2, recreating the original Half Life. A team of volunteer artists, coders and level designers have painstakingly recreated the beloved HL single player experience, adding vast amounts of new details such as more scenery objects, more detailed landscapes, and richer textures. They even recorded new dialog to ...

They are the same game. Unfortunately, Google doesn't allow free apps to turn into paid apps in the Play Store, so after the 24 hours were up, the promo version got pulled from the store and therefore won’t receive any updates. You can still opt for the paid version or use the demo version afterwards if you want to see the updates to the app. So basically ...

There is no version of Civilization 5 for the Xbox 360. There is Civilization: Revolution, but it's a completely different game. Even if there were, it is fairly rare that PC and Xbox 360 players can play multiplayer together. I can think of perhaps a handful of games where this is the case. So the answer is no, you can't play Civilization 5 between a ...

The DS version's main feature is a few extra playable characters with special abilities. The Wikipedia article covers most of the functional differences. However, I would like to bring attention to the main difference in my head: the DS controls are horrible. Since the DS doesn't have an analog stick, you are forced to use either the DPad or the stylus. ...

The 'Steam version' is just the GFWL version made for sale via steam. You still have to login to a GFWL account to play online.

From the screenshot shown on that page, it appears that the coin blocks have been relabeled with "25". I hope, at least, that this was the only "partially rearranged" issue in the 25th anniversary of a classic.

On PS3 you can play as Joker in the challenge levels.

There's also the Sheikah Stone Hints (like in the newly released Skyward Sword). You get to order your C-items any way you want in your inventory. The Master Quest is harder since you take double damage. And some minor things have been changed as well (some chest locations in dungeons). Fishing seems to be a bit harder than in the original version. And ...

There are a number of changes that were made in Wind Waker HD. For the casual player, playing as intended, the two main differences to consider are the removal of the Tingle Tuner, and the addition of the Swift Sail. The Swift Sail is an upgrade to the sail that automatically sets the wind direction, and also allows the King of Red Lions to go significantly ...

As far as content is concerned, no. You're getting the same game that the previous buyers got, it's just a different box. While there may sometimes be bugfixes, there does not have to be. Any bugfixes introduced in the Nintendo Selects version are necessarily minor, and would not affect normal gameplay. This is necessarily the case because there is no ...

Yes, the very same Tomato (the owner of EarthBound Central and the fan translator of MOTHER 3 into English) has an extensive comparison site specifically for this question: http://earthboundcentral.com/m2eb/ There's probably more than you ever wanted to know about the differences between these two games. :)

War of the Lions is basically the PSP version/remake, released 2007. It features a number of improvements and new elements (which are described on Wiki page in more detail - watch out for story spoilers though!) over its predecessor. Notable changes include increased difficulty level (reflecting the difficulty of original 1997 Japanese version), as well as ...

The box version loads itself into Steam, so after you install, there is no difference between the two on your computer. The boxed version includes a tech tree poster. There is an important typo on it though. It lists Archery as a dead end technology, which it isn't. The "manual" is a two page flier on how to install the game.
