Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm Collector's Edition PC Game

  • BLIZZARD
  • T - Teen
  • Genre Strategy
ICON Loading...


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 eggsGotta love Blizz's CE

Pros: Fantastic game. HoTS added some fantastic units to the multiplayer game, and the campaign is simply outstanding. Tons of feels, a really nice level of difficulty, and a great build up to the third expansion that SCII will have in the future. The collectors edition comes with the standard glossy finish mousepad (unfortunately unusable for me), art book, soundtrack, behind the scenes movie and game. The baneling pet for WoW is THE CUTEST! and the Queen of Blades wings for DIII are simply fantastic looking. GREAT BUY :)

Cons: Can't use the mousepad with my mouse, as its a hardcoated one. But it still looks cool :)

5 out of 5 eggsSick Sick Sick

Pros: New Units.
Graphics.
Gameplay.
Music.

Cons: I honestly cannot think of any. No lan support for any game that comes from Blizzard is about the only complaint anyone can have.

Other Thoughts: I bought this game from a competing website and have been playing the Beta since November. I cancelled that order and pre-ordered from Newegg 2 weeks before release. I got my copy after PATIENTLY Waiting for 2 days after release. I wasn't angry, but was hoping it would come fast. During my wait, I was watching games from MLG and GSL, among other numerous well established organizations, All were from to watch. Gameplay was great in Brood Way, it was amazing in WoL, and it is Just As Good in HoTS. I can play this game for hours on end. Multiplayer is where it's at for me, the chills, the thrive to be better than the scrub on the other side of the map; story mode is more of a break from macro/micro and just lay back and enjoy the story. I also really enjoy that if you have WoL and HoTS then you play a game with someone who only has WoL - the game will let the match itself go on as long as the map is a WoL map - meaning you won't have to log in/out of HoTS to WoL, I like that crossover ability alot because alot of my friendslist still only have WoL. Game is 10/10 without a doubt. Get it. Play it. And play it again. Now Did You Find This Review Helpful? I Sure Did.

4 out of 5 eggsHave this shipped fast, you want it ASAP

Pros: Heart of the swarm is INCREDIBLE!! This is by far one of Blizzards best expansion to date, second only to Diablo 2 LoD.

Without giving away any spoilers, let me just say that Kerrigan will SUPPRISE you! and the new Zerg tech in 1 player mode will definitely give you some awesome new things you have never seen in a Starcraft game before.

A lot of people criticize Blizzards required log in style DRM, but I think it is a PRO not a CON. The amount of features they offer makes the brief inconvenience of logging in and maintaining a active internet connection negligible. In fact with the amount of new features added to the multiplayer servers, It would be a waste of your time trying to obtain an illegitimate copy. Pay the money for this title, it is worth every penny.

Cons: I have pre-ordered software from newegg in the past, and I always choose eggsaver shipping. I have never received software later than 1-2 days after release, and things always ship by fedex or UPS.

Newegg changed things up and shipped this via DHL, who then offloads it to USPS. A week after release day I still did not have my game. I called both DHL and USPS and they both stated the other courier was still in possession of the parcel. I then called newegg to tell them the package was lost, but I was told I had to wait longer before filing a claim. So I waited, Filed my claim and requested a refund only because I was WAY TO EAGER TO PLAY THIS GAME!!! I went right to a local store and picked it up there to quench my Starcraft thirst.

Other Thoughts: Great game! If you have Wings of Liberty and enjoyed it, you have no excuse if you don't own this yet. My only recommendation is to not choose eggsaver shipping unless you don't mind an extended wait.
