I am currently a bit busy with RL. If I buy it I will just ruin everything for me. So I will wait for calmer times.

Just finished the campaign a bit ago, I would probably buy it just for that if I were you; the curious.

It's sitting on my HD and I only managed to get about 15mins into it! (Damn my job)

Really excited to try the new units out. Hoping the viper and swarm host will add some new depth to the zerg

And I can't wait to see where they will take the story, especially with the protoss expansion afterwards

Both add some depth, but they could use some tweaks. I'll let you figure out where those are needed!

The campaign was great. I enjoyed it, the Machiavellian attitude Kerrigan took, and the end it came to (though I'll be honest, I was upset with Raynor not getting the woman he'd moved heaven and earth to help). Blizzard once again shows they can piece together a story people care about, and characters that people understand.

Also, still a better love story than Twilight.

Leadership is something you learn. Maybe one day, you'll learn that.

Finished it, terrified of insects so this was either therapy or my nightmares are being cranked up to 13 soon.

Loved it, the romance had my inner fanboy squee but it was too damn short. Maybe 10 hours to finish the campaign with 65% of the achievements... Not quite sure what to make of the Zerus sequence though, I always thought of the Zerg as a hivemind rather than... that.

Why the hell did Raynor have a loaded pistol when he was in a high security prison cell?

It started out well. Then it turned really bad as it seemed Kerrigan was just going to reprise her role from all previous games but then in the end things turned good again.

I liked it.


Nova shows up for the sake of it yet again even if blizzard promised they wouldn't do that to her.

The very sun of heaven seemed distorted when viewed through the polarising miasma welling out from this sea-soaked perversion, and twisted menace and suspense lurked leeringly in those crazily elusive angles of carven rock where a second glance shewed concavity after the first shewed convexity.

Hey, they need the whole set in there of Blonde, Brunette and Redhead.

Also in the Artbook with the CE, verrrry nice picture of Kerrigan and Nova in an embaressingly fanservice pose that would make followers of the Hawkeye initiative blush.

I dunno, the single player campaign felt a bit forced, and at times a bit random, to me. Good idea about the new queen of blades, but I felt the implementation was all to short and I never really cared for any of the characters.

I think blizzard had a case of "overwriting" it.
