StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Review | Game Over Online

Game Over Online: "I haven’t read my own Wings of Liberty review in some time, but I seem to recall writing something about Blizzard taking the low-risk approach to Starcraft II – evolutionary, not revolutionary. They had a game in Starcraft 1 that had millions of fans the world over, even a decade after it had come out. Are people still leaguing the first C&C? Still playing the first Resident Evil? The original Doom? No, they’re not, not in any great numbers. So why would Blizzard risk alienating those players? Why would they do anything more than improve the game cosmetically, create a few new units while tweaking others, and leave most of the game alone? The answer is they wouldn’t, and they didn’t, not for Wings of Liberty, and not for Heart of the Swarm. So I’m giving it exactly the same rating." (PC, StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm) 85/100
