Starcraft II Heart Of The Swarm Soundtrack Review: This is a review of the video game score Starcraft II Heart Of The Swarm by Various Artists.

Heart Of The Swarm was the much anticipated addon to the award winning game series Starcraft II. Like the original score for Starcraft II, they have assembled a large party of composers. In Heart Of The Swarm, you will find Glenn Stafford, Derek Duke, Neal Acree, Cris Velasco, Jason Hayes and Russell Brower. I consider these composers veterans of the video game music industry, real heavyweights.

The score to Heart Of The Swarm doesn’t disappoint either. There are 11 cues here and they are all really long and juicy. There’s a wonderful feel of the wild frontier here with some western and sci-fi influences mixed in the tracks. There is of course some wonderful use of choir and epic horns as well. Cues such as ‘Stronger’ is as epic as they come.

Starcraft II Heart Of The Swarm is a really great score with powerful epic cues and large orchestra and synth fused together.

HIGHLIGHTS:
3. Collateral Damage
5. Stronger
7. Conscience
11. Whispering From The Stars

GEEK SCORE: 85.4
