Starcraft 2 - Heart Of The Swarm

Experience the intensity of the multiplayer action in the expansion to the award-winning real-time strategy game StarCraft® II.

Heart of the Swarm™ is the first expansion set to Blizzard Entertainment's sci-fi real-time strategy game StarCraft® II: Wings of Liberty™. Heart of the Swarm continues the epic story from Wings of Liberty with an all-new campaign that focuses on Kerrigan, the former Queen of Blades.

In the Heart of the Swarm campaign, players will be able to evolve their swarms with unique, campaign-only units and abilities, and this evolution will happen in an organic manner befitting of the expansion's zerg theme. Kerrigan will also play a major role in each of the battles as a powerful hero. Over the course of the campaign, she will grow in strength and earn new abilities, and players will choose which powers to enhance and use from mission to mission.

New multiplayer units and maps will add new dimensions of strategic gameplay, and the expansion will include new features and upgrades to the Battle.net® online platform to improve the custom-game experience.

Even better than the previous one

Great story line and graphics.

Heart of the Swarm

A must for strategy game lovers.

Purchase SC2

Very happy with product

Brilliant

If you're a fan of the Starcraft Campaign story line as its developed over the past 15 years you won't be disappointed... I just hope the last expansion doesn't take too long to be released. The multi-player is as good as always on battle.net, all said and done its a good buy.

Great service

Normally more to say when things are not good..but in this case I can say that Kalahari.com provide a great service as far as product/price/delivery they provide. Thank you.

Starcraft 2 HOTS

An excellent RTS game with an amazing story, if you have Wings of Liberty, you NEED to get this. And Kalahari.com has the lowest price and the best service!

Starcraft 2 - Heart Of The Swarm

The campaign for Heart Of The Swarm has much more depth and better voice acting than that of Wings of Liberty, and makes for a great experience while playing. The new addition of being able to mutate and evolve existing in-game units, makes for much replay value with different evolution choices.

SC2 HotS...Blizzard you beauty...

Once again, Blizzard has produced a masterpiece! :D For fans of the StarCraft franchise, this is an absolute must. Once again, the storyline is just perfect, keeping you in front of your PC for hours, just trying to see what happens next, one simply cannot stop playing. Blizzard have also added a matchmaking mode, which does not only match you up against other players of your skill in multiplayer (which did exist in SC2 Wings of Liberty), BUT, it also takes you through proper basic multiplayer games (vs AI or other players), to teach you how to play competitively (getting one out of the campaign mode habits). For those who can never get a win or two when joining multiplayer games, but enjoy multiplayer, this is perfect, as it eases you into the setup and basics, and you can progress at your own speed, and take on others when YOU are ready. This game is a must for anyone that's into RTS, and fans of SC2 will not be disappointed. SC2 HotS is worth every cent/rand spent!

Great game I bought on impulse. Found out later taht it avaailable elsewhere for half the price.

Excellent value.

The single player campaign was a brilliant continuation of the story line and every bit as rich as the Wings of Liberty. The changes brought to the multiplayer infrastructure is also welcome, and the new units are sure to appeal to avid multiplayer fans. The only real downside to this game, was the large patch required on release day - 5GB - but the excellent price from South Africa retailers easily made up for that!

Awesome

Enlightening

A very enlightening view into the history of StarCraft. Well put together, gives hope that not all is lost with Blizzard, direction shown throughout the story. Multiplayer is as good as always, setting the bar for competitive RTS games.

Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm

Starcraft 2: Heart of the swarm... Awesome!

My favorite RTS game ever! 10/10. Don't miss out on this one.

awesome

you'll like it

Expansion Only

This is an expansion only. So if you don’t have Starcraft WoL, like me, this would be of no use and you will have to buy Starcraft WoL first. Wish I knew this beforehand then I would have bought the bundle and save some bucks.
