A mod will be released in 2007 for starcraft brood war, the entire game is completely redone using the warcraft 3 engine, hopefully blizzard wont shut them down before it comes out. Since it is a mod, you will need starcraft and warcraft to run it. Gentlemen i give you Project revolution. http://www.blizzplanet.com/content/560/
I don't see anything sad about it. If some guys someday didn't make the Doomsday engine, I would still be stuck with the good old shooters all on DoxBox (any Doom fans here?). I'm thankful to guys like these that update games. I think it even looks a bit better than Warcraft.
