Colour me distinctly unimpressed by the promotional efforts for Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm. The Zerg were completely excluded from Wings of Liberty, ill-disposing me to these money-milking expansions that should have been in the base game. The end of Wings of Liberty was cheesy and uninspired, and it really doesn’t leave anywhere for the story to go: either Kerrigan is redeemed (retch-worthy) or backstabs Raynor again (eye-rollingly repetitive).
The graphics are just as appalling as they would have been five years ago, and the campaign mechanics closely follow Wings of Liberty: you collect stuff and upgrade your units through the game. Blizzard is unlikely to risk splitting the multiplayer player base, which means that this is probably the extent of new content.
