StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Review
1 May 2013
Excerpt: The wait has been long and anxious for Heart of the Swarm, the expansion to 2010's StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty. Blizzard originally hinted at a very rapid release schedule which did not exactly come to fruition.
Excerpt: Back in the year 2010, Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty easily won me over. As someone who wanted a true sequel to Starcraft, (and waiting ever so patiently while Blizzard centered their focus on World of Warcraft) I wanted a return to classic real time strategy, while at the same time being able to...
Excerpt: Starcraft has been a running for some time now with its most recent Terran based Starcraft II ”Wings of Liberty” title so we all knew it was only a matter of time until there was more to the story, and today we take a look at just that in the new “Heart of The Swarm” release.

Pros: Exciting and diverse single-player mission structure, a beautiful and overall engaging real-time strategy with that traditional Blizzard glimmer that gives it a terrific epic feel, the brilliant art, cool-looking graphics and awesome sound create a fine atmosphere;

Summary: StarCraft II features the return of the Protoss, Terran, and Zerg races. It's overhauled and reimagined with Blizzard's approach to game balance, and it's designed to be the ultimate competitive RTS game.
Excerpt: The second part of StarCraft II is here in the form of Heart of the Swarm, the Zerg campaign of Blizzard’s sci-fi RTS. This expansion, in addition to a new singleplayer campaign, brings in new multiplayer Units and many tweaks to make gameplay even tighter, as well as some general user-interface...
Excerpt: Attention minions…err loyal StarCraft II players, the expansion Heart of the Swarm is finally out and this player has never been happier. I’ve played StarCraft from the beginning and I’ve always loved the story of Sarah Kerrigan.
