    Almost certainly. The question is whether I get it tomorrow, or at the Easter bank holiday when I get paid!

    It's really boring. WoL. In 10 games I haven't actually used any of the new units bar the tempests once, where the game was already over.

    Well, i don't think its exactly like WoL, as Zerg I've used the upgraded Hydras and since I never used Hydras in WoL its kind of like a new unit^^. The viper is also pretty useful against bot terran and toss, and generally you can use quite different strategies compared to WoL, which always mixes things up a bit. On the other hand I play around platinum level so its possible that things are different in the diamond/master league .

    loving the campaign....storyline is a bad as you'd expect, it's unashamedly blizzard, so cheesey and weak, but somehow it's all the better for it...the missions themselves are still very entertaining, even to someone who is heavily Starcraft2 jaded.

    I ummed and ahhh'd over whether to buy this or let it rest with wings of liberty...I'm glad I did, but somehow still get a feeling I'm being conned..especially as a zerg, that swarm host thing can fuck off. Terran's made out like bandits again, speedy medivacs, widow mines, transformers.

    Would you say it's worth it? From what I have researched, Blizzards claim that they haven't just released an expansion pack at a full price is coming under a rather large degree of suspicion.

    I think it's a bit of a ripoff, but I'm glad I got it.

    Much of the best parts of the upgrade come for free with WoL patch. Resume from replay, much better AI skirmishes.

    The Multiplayer changes are less than inspiring.

    But the campaign seems entertaining.

    Make up your own mind...if you wanna see what happens to Jim and Sarah, and all the rest of the storyline thing, then go for it...if you wanna get back into MP, then WOL will still scratch that itch.

    This is DLC that should've cost 19.99 max....absolute max.

    27 missions

    You know, PC Gamer gave a reason why they didn't have a review for Tomb Raider almost a week before its official release. That two days after release, there is no review anywhere for HOTS does worry me.
