Halo: Hierarchy of alien races make out to conquor humanity.

SC2: Precursors existed 20,000 years before current events with very advanced technology.

SC2: Hero has to destroy Precursor super weapon to save the galaxy.
Halo: Hero has to destroy Precursor super weapon to save the galaxy.

SC2: Is a Magus Opus space opera spanning hundreds of planets the player has the option to visit, while exploring and allying with other alien races (with clever, funny, witty dialogue that never takes itself too seriously while remaining serious) in order to take down the Ur Quan battle thralls while building your own ultimate space cruiser that eventually becomes a super destroyer, making this the best game that ever existed; the game that God plays when hes not busy being God.

Halo: none of the above mentioned; but still a fun series to play.

Go download Star Control 2 The Ur-Quan Masters. It doesnt cost anything and is completely legal.

Cant wait until they release the remade HD version someone has been busy working on!
