Only groups of Protoss and Terran survivors remain on Aiur, mainly consisting of Captain James Raynor, Dark Templar Zeratul, Judicator Aldaris, and the newly-elected Praetor Artanis. Without their now fallen leader Tassadar, the Protoss and Terran survivors escape the Zerg to the Dark Templar world of Shakuras; where they plan to rebuild their army and commence their strike upon the Zerg race. Meanwhile, the UED (United Earth Directorate) has come to the Koprulu Sector with plans to neutralize the Terran Empire, now ruled by former renegade Arcturus Mengsk and former Confederate General Edmund Duke; but they are in for more than they expected.

Did You Know?


Clicking on the units reveals various humorous phrases. One of note is by a Protoss hero unit, Artanis. He states that, "This is not WarCraft in space!" See more »


The Protoss hero Artanis is Praetor of the Templar caste. However, as seen particularly clearly in the ending movie of the Protoss campaign, his psychic tendons (the 'dreadlocks' on top of his head) are cropped in the manner of the Dark Templar. See more »

Zeratul: United Earth Directorate? Raynor spoke of the distant Terran home world called Earth. These humans have come a long way to make war on us.

An excellent sequel to the original Starcraft
9 December 2008 | by (Cape Town, South Africa) – See all my reviews

A number of expansion packs lack the quality and focus of the original game, and one gets the feeling that it is just a cynical attempt of the developers to milk a few extra dollars out of fans of the original game. This is certainly not true for Starcraft: Broodwar, it is obvious that a lot of effort was made by Blizzard to produce a expansion that is on par with the original game. Starcraft: Broodwar felt more like a sequel than a mere expansion pack.

The storyline of the single campaign is as detailed and interesting as the original and a few useful units were added for each race. I only have two complaints, the first is that some of the missions are fiendishly difficult and there are a few times I had to resort to cheat codes to be able to finish the mission. My other complaint is the shortage of cut scenes, there are basically only one for each campaign. The developers took such a lot of effort with the storyline, why not follow it through with decent cinematics? Overall, if you enjoyed the original Starcraft, don't miss out on Starcraft: Broodwar, if you didn't, Starcraft: Broodwar is not going to change your mind because it is essentially more of the same.
