StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Review | Quarter to Three

Tom Chick writes, "The campaign is poorly written, poorly acted, erratically paced, full of pointless upgrades and meaningless choices, crammed full of overproduced cutscenes that fail to relate to the gameplay, and without a shred of creative insight into how to use a real time strategy game to tell a story, much less how to get me to click "next mission" without heaving a tired sigh. For all their incomparable game design smarts, Blizzard remains one of the worst storytellers in the business, partly for how hard they try and mostly for how spectacularly they fail." (PC, StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm) 2/5

What!? Tom Chick has given a game that's universally liked a very low score!? I'm shocked.
