I'm honestly confused about this. Is this campaign taking place during or after The Wings of Liberty campaign?
After. Kerrigan is freed of the influence of the swarm, but retains control. Whereas before, she was not just controlling the swarm, but a part of it; now, she commands them, without being one of them. Of course, this is just my understanding, and the game could prove me wrong, but it's pretty logical. It's implied that the Zerg are programmed to spread and destroy, and Kerrigan was created by the Overmind as someone who could resist that genetic destiny. Now that she's been purified by the artifact, it no longer affects her, and she can act as a pacifying influence on the swarm.
At the end we save Kerrigan and she goes all semi human and it looks like that's how she is in this game, but it didn't seem like she was evil anymore. I at least got the impression that she was glad to see Raynor again as he carried her away.
Minor nitpick, Kerrigan was never evil (there were no "evil" Starcraft characters until II).
I just don't see where this is going, because if she was just going to side with the Zerg again, then Raynor should feel like the biggest ass in the Milky Way for killing Tychus. I see in the trailer that Kerrigan looks like she's escaping, but to what end?
For clarification, there is no "Zerg" side, there is Kerrigan's side, and whatever side she's on, the Zerg are on as well. The only exception is Hybrids and psi-disruptors, which can control Zerg in a limited area.
If anyone has any ideas about where this is going to lead I would appreciate the feedback. This is just making me worried about the Protoss (my favorite) campaign, because I'm afraid it will just be the same story as SC:BW in reverse.
You played the bonus Protoss levels in WoL, I assume, so you know about the last one. I think that the Protoss campaign will have you replaying that level, but reversing your fortunes.
