Rory Young of Game Rant writes: "It has taken twelve years, but StarCraft II has finally landed on store shelves. Those that have watched the Ghosts of the Past trailer likely felt the same build up of anticipation leading up to the game’s release. The Terrans: Raynor, Emperor Mengst and Duran. The Protoss: Artanis, Zeratul and their fallen comrades Fenix and Tassadar. Finally the Zerg: Kerrigan, Queen of Blades, and her swarm, free from the Overmind. How will each of their stories intertwine; how will StarCraft II recreate the enchantment of the original?"
