While it's nothing new, Starcraft Expansion Set: Retribution proves that you don't need to be innovative to be good.
Computer Gaming World (CGW)
Multiplayer maps are subdivided into short games, co-op games, and general free-for-alls. They’re a decent and aren’t buggy. Still, these are only new maps, and there are no new units or cut-scenes. It’s no BROOD WAR, but it’s not a total waste of money either.
Gaming Entertainment Monthly
To conclude, Retribution is a fun addition to the Starcraft saga, giving the player an additional 31 levels to play with. The voices of your superiors were a bit corny and the story had some difficulties but the levels are done well. You are sure to have a good time playing this addition if you like Starcraft.
Retribution is an overall decent add-on that lets you play some very challenging maps that take a long time to finish. The story is decent, and didn't seem completely slapped together, but the characters didn't have a lot of depth to them. The new sound effects were not very noticeable and played a small role in the overall picture. The missions were the highlight of the add-on, and overall it was pretty average.

Normally this is where you see a paragraph about the good aspects of the game, but in this case we'll skip it and go straight to the conclusion. The sheer lack of new features in this expansion pack makes it an empty product with little one can't download for free. Those lacking web access might consider it, but most should avoid this one.
