Summary: If it's any indication of how I feel about this game, I wrote this review two days later than I theoretically could have just because I wanted to keep playing it. I also took three breaks while actually writing it to go play some more. Sure, it could have gone up Friday, but I decided to spend the entire weekend playing it, just to be safe. It's been almost twelve years since we got Brood War , and the original StarCraft still remains insanely popular.
Excerpt: Starcraft: almost anyone who has ever touched a real-time strategy game knows exactly what series I’m talking about. Arguably Blizzard’s most successful title (if you exclude the millions World of Warcraft brings the devils monthly) amongst the widest audience globally. The three races: Terran, Protoss and Zerg, have become as commonplace as the king, queen, bishop, and rook in the minds of today’s competitive strategic players.
Summary: The gameplay in StarCraft II is solid as a rock, but next to some of the more sophisticated recent games like Dawn of War 2 and Company of Heroes, it seems a bit dated. Of course, one person’s “dated” is another person’s “classic,” but if you don’t like real-time strategy games, this probably isn’t the game that’s going to change your mind.
Excerpt: The next installment of the Starcraft franchise has landed with the Heart of the Swarm , an expansion for the 2010 release of Starcraft II Wings of Liberty. After rescuing Sarah Kerrigan from the Zerg in the previous game and "separating" her link as the Zerg Queen (aka the Queen of Blades), Jim Raynor was hoping for a happy reunion with his one-time lover. This would not be the case.
Exceptional strategy sequel with some mature themes.

Summary: Parents need to know that StarCraft II : Wings of Liberty is a real-time strategy game set in the future and involves combat between three different alien races. The game includes plenty of violence (with blood and gore), foul language, and scenes with drinking and smoking. Violence will likely be the big concern, as players are battling rival factions to the death -- with blood and limbs flying.
Excerpt: Safar’ Wii claims to, “make the dream of getting close to wild animals a reality.” No doubt there are many Wii owners who would love a detailed virtual safari to explore at their leisure, free to gain the trust of the wildlife before photographing them at their natural routines. Well if any of those gamers do buy Safar’ Wii they are going to be disappointed.
