The Queen of Blades is gone. On the hellish planet Char, Jim Raynor harnessed the power of an ancient Xel’Naga artifact in a desperate bid to stop the zerg Swarm from overrunning the Koprulu sector, and the artifact restored Sarah Kerrigan to her human form. Without their queen to guide and unify them, the Swarm has fractured into several broods scattered throughout the Koprulu sector. One of the greatest threats to the galaxy has been neutralized... or so it seems.        

Sarah Kerrigan is on the loose. Even without the terrible powers of the Queen of Blades or the might of the Swarm at her command, the former Ghost remains a foe not to be taken lightly. But if the artifact really did set her free, then why is Kerrigan seeking out zerg broods scattered throughout the Koprulu sector? What happened to Jim Raynor? Is she still pursuing her quest for vengeance, or has her transformation given Kerrigan a new purpose?

Who is Sarah Kerrigan?

5 out of 5 eggsFor the Queen of Blades!

Pros: If I had to choose a strategy game to encompass a large amount of my time for months on end it would have to be this installment of Starcraft II. The new units, complex strategies and multiple options on play through make this game a lot of fun. Playing on Battle.Net is a mixed bag, I am not good enough to really challenge other players but I enjoy playing against the AI enough to keep going with this game.

Cons: Some of the units have really limited use outside of the story mode, others have been a little nerfed in this installment.

Other Thoughts: More than worth it for Single player, but if you enjoy online play PVP then you will love it.

4 out of 5 eggsGame (meh) Story (4 stars)

Pros: new units changes the gameplay from the original WoL, the story line is so back and forth that I don't know what to expect! Blizzard does have a great story going.

Cons: The game itself... online games are now like starcraft 1... ALL ARCADE/use map setting... But I can't blame them, the game is too systematic in the beginning, sometimes till the end. Lack of Lan does not help at all... Anyways, it's not worth $40, maybe 15-20 (mainly for the story)

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fun campaign, decent storyline and GREAT cinematics. B.net and multiplayer experience have also gotten a facelift. Definitely recommended for all the SC fans

Cons: Campaign isn't that challenging, definitely easier than the BW campaign. Plot is not as epic as SC or BW, but that's somewhat expected. Hard to top such classics.
