    Review of the campaign part of the game only. *Spoilers*

    Rated on March 13, 2013 by kasperdyhr

    Hots is a great addition to the Starcraft saga, it takes up the mantle left by Wings of Liberty and carries on without simply doing it the same manner as the previous title. First off game play follow...

    In an age where overpriced DLCs with a couple guns roll for $10, HotS gives you 100 times as much, for only 4x the price

    Rated on March 13, 2013 by -MordeN-

    Heart of the Swarm is, by today's standards, an oddity, a really old concept which is used by Blizzard and only a handful of other developers, because most have gone to the DLC approach. In this aspec...

    This game just isn't that good (Campaign)

    Rated on March 14, 2013 by Ch33zWiz

    *Probably Spoilers* HotS took so long to come out that most of us pictured hundreds if not thousands of developers working diligently to perfect the much anticipated game so as to if not exceed WoL...

    Vengance time but maybe wasn't enough

    Rated on March 14, 2013 by PipeBigboss

    We had waited some years for a new game of starcraft universe and a sequel of the starcraft WoL, most of the fans must be happy others as always are complaining about some twists found in the story. W...

    The campaign was everything I was hoping for and more. Totally awesome!!!

    Rated on March 14, 2013 by shnelle

    I'm going to review just the single player campaign. Multiplayer is a whole other ball of wax and if you want a taste just watch eSports. Though I will say this games makes me wish I was more of a mu...

    Campaign was really disapointing.

    Rated on March 18, 2013 by Spunkermonkey

    I have always been a fan of starcraft and the human camapaign was great. But I was disapointed in HOS. It was super easy, story wasn't very good at all and whats up with them changing the controls whi...

    An excellent addition to the Starcraft series. (This is strictly a review based on the campaign/narrative.)

    Rated on March 15, 2013 by Xavren

    Again, this review is strictly on the narrative/gameplay. While I've been a Starcraft player since I was a lad, I'm not going to comment on the multiplayer, though I may touch on the user interface of...

    Everything became better, but not quiet to the best.

    Rated on March 15, 2013 by mrlie3

    Having played countless hours of Wings of Liberty and the beta version of this game with Master level ladder, Heart of the Swarm is definitely a big improvement in many features like multiplayer inter...

    Rated on March 16, 2013 by djwood84

    Lets get the big thing out of the way first -- Wings of Liberty multiplayer had time to stabilize. When it came out, (and from time to time throughout its tenure) there were many strategies that tend...
