StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void Review

Are the aliens in StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void scary?

Depends how you feel about faceless psychics and gribbly beasts. It never goes into straight-up horror, and Blizzard's style is so over the top that it defies becoming disturbing.

What is the future like in StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void?

A bit grim, really, but the whole of society in this part of the galaxy did come from the crashed ruins of prison ships. StarCraft kinda does a bit of everything - space magic, super-tech and cowboys. This particular iteration is a little more on the techy side thanks to the Protoss focus.

Have you come up with any clever strategies in StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void?

No, though many others have. On the singleplayer side, it's more balanced than Heart of the Swarm was, as well as giving you more changable options on how to specialise your forces. For multiplayer, there's a whole world of strategies to dive into, and it's more diverse than ever.

Can you get away with just rushing the enemy in StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void?

Nah. It's viable but counterable. At earlier levels, against worse players, it's probably a good option though.

How active is the competitive scene in StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void?

Very. Fairly easy to get games, big pro scene and lots of grassroots tournaments to feed you into the highest levels, if you're good enough.

Would you buy at full price or wait for a StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void sale?

I'd get it at full price, not least because the chance of there being a sale soon is very low - Blizzard just don't do that, and it's not on Steam so there's no seasonal stuff. Chances are it'll get a discount when the first round of DLC hits - which should be quite soon - and at Christmas, but it's not going to be by a significant amount.

How good are the sounds in StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void?

Brill, usual standard you'd expect from the ridiculously veteran Blizzard sound department. Some great music for certain missions.

It's only showing the age of the engine ever so slightly, but Blizzard have never been top of the range. For an RTS it looks fantastic, and ramping everything up is still beautiful.
