    This game just isn't that good (Campaign)

    *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, at least match it ... Read Full Review

    Starcraft 2: Heart of Swarm

    Episode II of StarCraft 2, with the title HEART OF SWARM. The game is great to play except when we already complete, the zergling don't evolve with wing. I think that creature is key to win battle.Even in VERSUS A.I., th... Read Full Review

    Slightly better than its predecessor but still not "epic".

    Another three years we had to wait for this game, well, not game but rather and expansion pack for Wings Of Liberty.I still don't understand why Blizzard does this? Three additional years just for a new campaign, story ... Read Full Review

    Pretty standard affair for a "Starcraft II game"

    Starcraft 2 HoTS is a very straightforward game, in terms of reviewing. It's pretty much Starcraft WoL but with a different skin. In this campaign, instead of upgrading terran units with/ as Jim Raynor, you upgrade zerg ... Read Full Review

    Let's just say it takes Wings of Liberty and gives it a more colorful, immersive and entertaining news flash.

    Lets get right down to business, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm is the sequel to the highly acclaimed and desperately desired Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty. A game who's popularity rivals that of country sports and in s... Read Full Review

    US$ 39.99? Don't even ask twice, I'll grab it any day, any time.

    First of all, i'll just simply talk about the bad. In my personal opinion, the campaign, which only features 1 race, is itself, bad. You will not be able to play the campaign using the new units featured in the next expa... Read Full Review

    Great new campaign,the same intense multiplayer action but very few new units keep it from being truly fantastic.

    I think Blizzard have successfully recreated the magic that was wings of liberty with the Hots campaign it plays great, the difficulty is well balanced and of course the trilogy continues with an epic story. playing as ... Read Full Review

    Great, but keeps you wanting more.

    This is a great game, but I found it to be lacking a couple of things that made WOL great, first is that out of 27 missions, you do almost 20 alone, which is great if it wasn't because about 6 of them are just walking fr... Read Full Review

    Old days came back, good old Starcraft - finally!

    I'm the old one... joking, but yeah, it's true - in my time games like Starcraft or Warcraft were icons. And looking now - this episode bring me back to my youth. The first episode was good, but this one shows what the r... Read Full Review
