The Zerg campaign was one of my favorites. :) We should do a poll.

At Gradius's request, we make the poll now. Choose your favorite campaign of all SC and explain why. That easy :)

I restricted to include the main playable campaigns. All add-ons (Insurrection, Retribution, Enslavers, Deception and Resurrection) and Loomings are not considered in the poll but you can vote for them by voting for the closest time-wise campaign (e.g. Vote for Rebel Yell as if it was Insurrection) and specify in thread.

Definitely Iron Fist. Great mix of fun missions and character drama.

If I had to rank, off the top of my head I'd do: Iron Fist > The Stand > QOB > Rebel Yell > The Fall > The Overmind.

But I haven't played BW through to the end in a while. I might not be giving QOB enough credit.

My personal list is: The Fall > Overmind > QoB > Iron Fist > The Stand > Rebel Yell

Overmind, for sure!

"We'll show these critters they can't mess with the Terran Domini--"

Just great seeing everything from the Zerg perspective - it was such a cool experience! Missions which might otherwise be considered mundane became 100% better just because of the Zerginess! :D

I go:


Queen of Blades
Rebel Yell
The Iron Fist
The Stand
The Overmind
The Fall


I love the way Queen of Blades progresses. And I love how there's some nice denouement at the end. (The story really does end at "To Kill the Beast".) Kerrigan is also a really compelling protagonsit IMHO.

Rebel Yell is really great too in my opinion. The missions are pretty weak, but the story is really strong. Some fairly good twists, and New Gettysburg's ending is really cool, I think.

Iron Fist is really good too. I love the character drama and I love Dugalle. Also probably has the best set of missions of any campaign in the entire game.

The Stand is good, but I find it doesn't quite have the same oomph that Iron Fist or Queen of Blades does. Story-wise. You spend a little too much time just flying around in space, and I find the Uraj and Khalis crystals really awkward plot-devices.

The Overmind in the Overmind is really cool, but I find Kerrigan kinda bland in this campaign.

Can anyone elaborate on which campaign name is which campaign?

I never actually knew they had names...

But if the Iron Fist happens to be BW Terran campaign, that is my choice.

Rebel Yell is Terran
Overmind is Zerg
The Fall is Protoss
The Stand is Protoss x
The Iron Fist is Terran x
The Queen of Blades is Zerg x

I'm a Terran junky, so I say Iron Fist and Rebel Yell. In that order, too.

Iron Fist for me. Loved seeing the game from the perspective of the UED, very interesting.

Iron Fist > Queen of Blades > The Stand > Rebel Yell > Overmind > The Fall
My preference is like so: BW campaigns > Original campaigns
Race campaign preference is: T campaign > Z campaign > P campaign

I simply like the units in BW over SC vanilla.

For the race preference I'm a Terran fan so I'm biased towards them

Story wise - the Fall. Tassadar's sacrifice was a powerful part of the story to me. Gameplay wise I like the Iron Fist or the Stand.

The Stand sucks that much? Only 1 vote? lol

I like the original starcraft zerg campaign mainly because i completed it only with mutalisks, guardians, scourge...except for the first mission and the Amerigo. I overused them and it was funny :)

The Fall and The Stand was a bit debateable but The Fall was really awesome so I chose it, En Taro Tassadar!

I agree that The Iron Fist was cool. But I mainly enjoyed the mission Patriot's Blood...

1 Queen of Blades
2 The Fall
3 Overmind
4 Rebel Yell
5 The Stand
6 The Iron Fist

I actually like them a lot, but I like Queen of Blades the most because of the challenging nature of the missions, when I got really sick of my ass being handed to me in B.Net I would set to complete the last 5 missions of QOB, real fun :P

I voted Queen of Blades, but thinking about it, I'm not sure. It might be tied with The Iron Fist.

I need to play through the campaigns to figure it out fully.

I should probably play them again some time. They're all a bit of a blur... I remember the story pretty clearly though (much better than I remember RoC and TFT), but the names get all messed up :)

Well, I need a reason to procrastinate, and as someone's done the necroing for me, I can move in on the corpse...wait a minute...that didn't come out right...:eek:

StarCraft

From best to worst, I'd go:

The Fall (my vote)
Rebel Yell
Overmind
Enslavers

Brood War

The Iron Fist
The Queen of Blades
The Stand
Dark Vengeance

Other

Precursor
Insurrection
The Stukov Saga (as in, the Mercenaries duology, Deception, and Resurrection)
Retribution
HunCraft
Stellar Forces

I feel I should clarify that I haven't actually played Insurrection, HunCraft, or Retribution, so I can only judge them by their plot. So, while out of the ones listed above, I feel Insurrection has the best plot, I can't put it above Precursor by virtue of me having played it while not the ones listed. Have played some of Stellar Forces though...unfortunately...:(

I played Insurrection and Retribution. Didn't know it had a plot. Learn something new everyday :D

Also, is HunCraft canon? I always ignored cause I thought it wasn't.

Isn't canon, just like Stellar Forces really. However, boiling down my stance on canon in an individual sense, I included them because they got commercial releases. Not material I can really use in any lore-based argument, but still stuff I'm willing to use in writing for instance.
