Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm

I blogged about the previous installment of Starcraft 2, why stop now? Hahah. So another game I couldn't play during Lent was Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm. It is the first expansion of the game and a continuation of the story in Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty. There are three races in the Starcraft games and this time, you get to play the Zerg.

Inside the box was a notepad, a pair of guest passes for World of Warcraft and Starcraft: Wings of Liberty, a quickstart guide and copy of the game expansion on DVD.

It only took me a few days to play through the campaign. It was fun but it took a lot of time for each mission. I'm not very good at the strategy...I tend to use brute force and overwhelm my enemies with a bajillion of my forces instead. XD I'm not really sure I like the story too much, it kind of undid what the protagonist, James Raynor did in the previous game and the anti-hero of this expansion, Sarah Kerrigan, was too much of a damsel in distress at the ending. And of course Blizzard loves to tug at our heart strings and have a bittersweet ending. NOOO! I want Raynor and Kerrigan to get together!!! Well, there is still one more expansion on the way...though it may take another five years for it to come out. lol I still have to try the online matches which Starcraft is known for, though I'm pretty sure I would not last very long. I mean, the AI pretty much beats me almost very time...
