Starcraft 2 by Blizzard became free to play these days. I downloaded it (30 GB) yesterday and started to play the first campaign which is free to play as well.
Nice game, a bit similar to Command & Conquer, thus the type of game I really like.

Meanwhile I played the first 8 of 25 mssions of the free campaign "Wings Of Liberty". The last mission was about collecting minerals faster than the opponent in order to be able to hire some expert to decipher data provided by an android we obtained in the previous mission.
This was the most challenging mission so far. It took me a few attempts until I realized I first have to take out the three bases from the opponent to stop him collecting minerals, which buys me time to collect the required amount of minerals. Fortunately this planet is a junk yard and thus besides prospecting minerals they can also be found everywhere in this world.
After I reached the amount of minerals needed the mission opened up a second part with another objective: to destroy the opponents head quarter.
There was no time constraint anymore and it took me a few attack waves to break through his defense. I learned that the cheapest units I have so far, the marines, are my only means to attack a flying ship defending the head quarter.

One of the best games made in history. Too bad it is also one of the most difficult to master. Pro players play at least 12 hours a day. Some say it's too 'elite'. A masterpiece, nonetheless. And everybody should buy and play the campaign.
