It honestly puts the best efforts from Hollywood to shame. And that is no exaggeration.

The intro for the upcoming StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm expansion has just been revealed. And, seriously, it outclasses everything we’ve seen from Spielberg, Lucas, Bay, and all the rest…

Would I see a feature length film that resembles the above? Absolutely. Or play a game that’s also the same? Without question. But what StarCraft II then?

That’s the thing; the actual game doesn’t resemble the above the least bit. Though it still looks very sexy, for a RTS. Which, unfortunately, is not my kind of game. Here’s a reminder…

About Matt Hawkins... Matt Hawkins is an NYC based video game journalist, designer, consultant, and cultralist. He's been published in EGM, Kotaku, and MSNBC amongst others. Matt also makes comics and zines, is obsessed with cable access, gets into arguments with homeless people all the time, and once had his nipple bitten off during a one night stand. But that's neither here nor there.
