    StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm


    About the Game

    StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm is the second part of the StarCraft II series. It continues the storyline and will focus more on the activities of the Zerg.

    Our Verdict

    Editor's Choice
    Very little bad can actually be said about this expansion for StarCraft 2. The story alone is enough to keep players entertained and the uniqueness of each mission is extremely satisfying. The multiplayer component isn't vastly different in terms of experience, but the adaptations are refreshing enough. The only gripe with the game is that normal difficulty feels a little bit too spoon-fed and the evolution missions are glorified tutorials which often feel unnecessary. However on the whole the game should not be missed, as it's thoroughly enjoyable throughout and ends the same way it starts, with an excitement to see what happens next. Roll on Legacy of the Void.
