IMG Reviews StarCraft II: Heart Of The Swarm
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Blizzard Entertainment's StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, the next chapter in the sci-fi RTS saga. The game's single player campaign revolves around Kerrigan and her plans to "take down Arcturus Mengsk once and for all," while the multiplayer aspect features a variety of new units and abilities to employ.

Here's an excerpt:

You'll also find that the new multiplayer units are loads of fun to play with, even if they do make it more complicated to plan out a good build. The new mine is quite balanced, but devastating when used properly, the viper pulls in high-value targets for destruction and renders tanks helpless, the mothership core turns a Protoss nexus into a giant raygun, and the new custom maps popping up around their use are getting better and better. Even if you ignore the campaign entirely (which you shouldn't), you'll likely find hundreds of hours of fun through the additions to the multiplayer.

As an added benefit, Battle.net has been upgraded to use a lot of community requested features through Heart of the Swarm. You'll find chat rooms, an easy-to-use list of custom maps currently popular (you won't likely be able to find enough players to start a map that isn't), unranked matchmaking for people that don't want the stress of league play, and an overall cooler look. When compared to the spartan nature of the Wings of Liberty Battle.net, it's a gigantic improvement. You'll be able to get the upgrade without buying Heart of the Swarm, though, so you may want to forgo the purchase if that's the only thing you're excited about.
