Re: SC II: Heart of the Swarm
Now Kerrigan's effectively ruined....I couldn't care less as i've always rooted for the Zerg :(

Maybe the UEF will somehow warp in and OWN everything.../me crosses fingers

I was thinking UED
The acronyms are similar and it's late

idk, it would be cool to see fleets of Karunas and hordes of Uhlans just railgunning and vulcan cannoning the zerg into meaty chunks.  :lol:

So, I finished the campaign and I'm severly dissapointed.



Not only was a poorly rendered vid on youtube the actual ending...but Jesus
Story Director: Chris Metzen

This whole saga started out so great and they ruin it peace by peace, sure, gameplay-wise the campaign was fun and you could actually upgrade/improve any unit unlike in WoL.
There are some pretty neat things.
Hell...
I don't even wanna know how they will ruin the Protoss in Legacies of the Void...

This game is so preposterously bad, unless you're in it for the multiplayer, in which case okay.

Re: SC II: Heart of the Swarm
Is the single player campaign as bad as wings of liberty or worse? Oddly enough as bad as it was I still enjoyed it so if HOTS is more of the same I would be okay with it.
Holy Crap. SHIVANS! Tours

 
Re: SC II: Heart of the Swarm
Story manages to be worse somehow, but the gameplay is around the same level.
Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Re: SC II: Heart of the Swarm

It's got worse ...
WoL storytelling severly suffered from its non-linarity makeing its protagonist totally inconsistant (I've seen people with severe depressions and bi-polar personality disorders that are more consistant than Raynor) but Kerrigan isn't an consistant and understandable character either despite more linear storytelling

and don't get me started on them taking the whole Xel'Naga prophecy **** further ... because they did and they made it even more beyond senseless

Not only was a poorly rendered vid on youtube the actual ending.
****ing knew it.

to be fair, it wasn't the actual ending 1 to 1 ...
the pathetic "now the zerg are free"-part was replaced by something even worse and more in line with whole Zeratul's Prophecy nonsense ...


And gameplay is the usual SC-**** they call strategy at Blizzard ... although in the SP camp you get a bit more the "endless swarm"-feel that the Zerg lacked in the past two campaign (I'm refering to the "Zerglings are a one-time investment"-upgrade to Kerrigan)

I know that the "old-school" things is part of StarCraft brand but Blizzard has passed up every invoation to the RTS genre this past decade... from effective defenses (okay Total Anhiliation had those too) to meaningful mapcontrol...

Re: SC II: Heart of the Swarm
Well, but the last missions of the campaign I usually won by massing Ultralisks and Hydralisks, plus some queens.
You can build, upgrade and evolve evry single unit apart from the Overlord and the queens, you don't have to choose like in WoL...this bugged me.
But creating a Leviathan as abilty is nice.

Re: SC II: Heart of the Swarm
I didn't read this whole thread.. but it seems most people didn't care for the Campaign. Meh. I enjoyed it. It's not prize worthy, but who doesn't like a good revenge story now and then?

Besides (Real-time, not Starcraft Universe time)..
Spoiler:
****in Arcturus... He had that coming for 15 damned years.

I guess the reason I enjoyed it was because I had been waiting that long to be able to do that... so when
Spoiler:
Raynor was supposedly killed and Kerrigan got all pissed
, it caused me to be hoping there was no twist ending and that my blood-lust would not go unsatisfied!  :)

Re: SC II: Heart of the Swarm
I personally think this game has terrific value.  Then again, I spent precisely zero dollars and zero cents on this game.  Given the people I know, I probably won't have to actually purchase a Blizzard game for a long while.

Re: SC II: Heart of the Swarm
Okay, i have just finished the game, and i loved it both singleplayer and multiplayer. I thought the campaign was better than wings of liberty! Ok i admit the acting was very hollywood and the story was ok not the best i have seen but not the worst and lets face it blizzard stories aren't the most original but their not crap, but mission design wise very good and very varied, loved getting to fly the hyperion. Very balanced and i found that late in the games i was still using units like zerglings with the jump upgrade makes them pretty useful and to compliment the hydras slow speed.

Also i thought the soundtrack music was awesome, one of the best soundtracks i have heard. I also like the fact they upgraded the staredit to allow you to create high poly model cinematics like the ones in the game and you can use your own models and sounds. You can also render them to avi. This i think is a nice feature allowing the fans to basically create their own movies.

So i really enjoyed it and i feel like i got my money worth out of it. As for the ending and the leaked ending, i never watched the leaked ending to be honest i don't know why people would watch it, its like getting a book and just skipping to the last page. Where people thinking blizzard might do a bioware and change it?
