You know, I was excited until they said they were going to only have maybe 10-12 units within the single-player campaign. Evolving units is cool, but that only augments their roles, not makes them something different. I've heard nothing about the story for HoTs but Liberty was disappointing. Not sure about this one.
The writing is place-holder, they even came out and said that. Also, we have seen hardly anything about it.
Did you expect the game to have entirely new units, buildings, etc? This isn't a new game, it's just an expansion, but it is not a spin-off. I doubt you even know what you're talking about when you call it that.
I think that your right.
It not that the story in WoL was bad it just that it was not amazing like SC1. I love the gameplay in WoL(campaign), although some of the missions in WoL were not hard enough on brutal.
where are you getting this only 10-12 units in the campaign?
WoL concentrated on the multiplayer aspect of the game tweaking and balancing; the single player campaign suffered for it; from the blizzcon interview they plan on concentrating on the single player campaign, I'll wait the 1.5-2 years if that is indeed when they intend to release to make a judgement.
you seem to want to condemn Heart of the Swarm because of WoL's writing either because of altered lore or retcons yet if you really want to punish Blizz stop buying their games; or make suggestions i.e. what made Sc1 so great y did you enjoy it why 12 years after the last expansion do you still play it? otherwise you come across as a troll
Listen at about 2:00 mark and you'll hear the 10-12 units but with different evolution paths.
Let's start counting units, shall we?
I count 12 units in that selection. Ew.
They might be cheap and just make mutations completely new units, but that is not what it looks like from the evolutions they have showed us within the videos.

They've even said that haven't decided the new units. They're still in the concept art phase for most of them. Of course the placeholders are going to be the old units. This is EARLY Alpha.
I'd hope that early alpha note is the case, otherwise campaign is going to be rather low on unit selection (not including evolutions).
The worst part about the 12 units I spoke of earlier didn't even include the overlord...
