- Everything you need to know and then someReview by Boskov01
There are a couple of missing units though like the Liberator. The Hellbat is mentioned but not shown on the Hellion page. The commentary from the nameless Marines though are hilarious. For example the Ghost page has "Here we see the Ghost in it's natural environment...hiding behind marines." There's also caustic comments about the Barracks and comments asking why the engineering teams in the Factory get cushier living quarters and the Marines don't.
There's also a size chart which helps to give an idea as to the real-world size of the ships and units. The manual also gives a rough history of the Koprulu sector.
One thing to bear in mind is that the book is written from the perspective of the Terran Dominion after the events of Heart of the Swarm. It is by far a definite must have for fans of StarCraft. I'd even recommend this to people unfamiliar with SC so that they can get an idea of the units, structures, and even the semi-light hearted universe of StarCraft. (Posted on 7/12/16)
