If a campaign is not listed here then it is either a pre-2008 campaign not worth reviewing (everything released after 2008 should be on this list), an incomplete campaign that has active development, or a new campaign that I simply didn't know exists. In any case, any campaign not listed here is not recommended. please contact the author of this QA spreadsheet if you believe there is a campaign that should be added to this list for QA analysis and/or recommendation

Broodwar 1.16.1
42%30%20%75%70%60%60%20%15%40%40%35%
A very bad terran campaign made in inspiration of Aeon of the Hawk, which is itself bad.

Aeon of the hawkMetathrom2004Tyes13Broodwar 1.1060%85%70%70%100%75%45%30%15%80%70%15%
A micro/RPG terran campaign, it has extremely frustrating gameplay due to poor map design choices. Addiitonally, it has a boring human vs human story that could have been done better in modding other games instead of starcraft
8
The revengersVolka2005T&Pno8Cartooned SCR50%30%0%80%50%40%55%65%70%65%15%80%
Starcraft 2, if it was written by a 10 year old. Goes well with the cartooned skin on SCR. Recommended for those who don't mind a childish plot and character development

starcraft alternateUEDCommander2018Allyes60SCR 1.2362%65%60%100%35%85%90%65%50%85%40%12%
An alternate of the original SC campaign. Recommended only if you aren't tired of the original campaign. currently being remastered.

12
starcraft storm surgeStratosTygo2012Allno42Broodwar4%0%0%0%20%0%2%5%5%5%0%5%
this seems to be more like a bunch of random maps with map settings than a custom campaign
13
star adairisStratosTygo2013Allno97Broodwar28%25%0%55%50%25%30%35%30%30%30%3%
The main problem is that the plot is designed for a completely different universe with completely different races than the ones in StarCraft. This could be fixed with a custom mod but none was ever made.
Instead a wiki was made.
14
starcraft uprisingStratosTygo2015Allno30Broodwar35%30%0%40%55%35%45%35%40%40%35%25%

15
UED VictoryStratosTygo2016Tno12Broodwar51%40%25%100%50%60%75%60%35%70%35%10%
An alternate of episode V in starcraft. Recommended only if you aren't tired of the original campaign
16
starcraft 2 - annihilationDudkisc22018Allno24Starcraft 274%60%60%50%70%95%90%60%65%100%100%60%
A huge project that can sadly no longer be recommended due to a gamebreaking bug on mission 21 that prevents the campaign from being completed. Aside from that, the main flaws with this campaign are the lack of a timeframe in relation to the events of starcraft, the lack of voice acting in a campaign with really deep storytelling, excessive options in the types of units that can be built, frustrating zerg missions, and xen syndrome.
17
Meridian 2CyberLord ZHM2006Xno5Broodwar40%35%0%55%70%40%60%25%25%75%0%50%
Starts off as a well designed but boring tutorial campaign but then degenerates into unplayabiity as the later maps were clearly never tested. Also, the maps use the "Destroy all enemy units" win condition which should never ever be used.
18
Starcraft AftermathGnaReffotsirk2009Zno7Broodwar40%50%10%60%90%55%55%10%10%60%20%20%
Suffers from atrocious map layout design and pause dialog that is too lengthy
19
Defiance of the fallenRicky Jr. Nomura2009Xno7Broodwar33%20%5%65%35%55%25%15%20%60%20%40%
Massive potential wasted by a complete lack of map testing. Campaign feels unfinished also
20
LogFish's campaignLogFishn/aTno-Broodwarno score
3 out of the 5 episodes made are missing. The sixth was never made, probably because the author realised his work was terrible.
21
TornArlenton2004Zno10Broodwar50%40%40%65%55%50%70%40%50%75%10%60%
A pure zerg macro campaign. This comes close to being recommended, but ultimately it is too repetitive and there are just too many minor issues with this campaign.
22
Voices of the swarmAndrea Rosa2019Zno6Starcraft75%65%0%100%80%90%100%80%85%95%50%80%
A classic zerg RTS style campaign. This campaign provides an excellent backstory to the second cerebrate that zeratul kills just before the battle against the overmind.
23
starcraft Reincarnationdeepstrasz2012Xno36Broodwar25%0%0%5%25%20%40%35%10%20%80%35%
Just like a StratosTygo campaign, but without macro gameplay.
24
The HybridsMithrandir2003Allno10Broodwarno score
A co-op campaign. Recommended only for co-op play
25
Starcraft AntebellumGrimReaper3082016Xno3Broodwar8%0%0%15%20%10%0%5%10%5%0%25%
The big rigs over the road racing of starcraft campaigns
26
Starcraft interbellumJuxtapose2018Allno11Broodwar71%60%0%100%80%90%85%70%70%80%65%85%
A classic RTS style campaign. This is a fairly well made campaign designed to connect brood war with the events of starcraft 2 although starting from mission 6 map and design quality starts to deteriorate.
27
Starcraft Mass Recallvarious people2017Allyes60Starcraft 284%100%100%100%100%100%80%80%90%100%40%30%
A remake of the starcraft campaign for starcraft 2. Recommended even for those fedup of the original campaign because it also includes some other custom campaigns as extras.

The black sunmxmagic2010Xno9Broodwar43%15%0%100%30%30%35%35%25%100%55%50%
One noteworthy thing about this untested badly made campaign is that the developer managed to "cheat" the plot-map and setting relation scores by specifically stating "the black sun" consists entirely of "jungle", "badlands", "desert", and "ice", 4 map types in staredit.
32
The bob levelsTim1999Allno19Cartooned SCR71%75%20%80%85%80%n/a40%80%n/a100%80%
A campaign for starcraft remastered cartooned, it was made 20 years ahead of its time! The map layouts are poorly designed but that is the only major flaw with the the campaign. Do not use the custom exe.

Broodwar 1.16.1
19%0%0%65%5%20%35%5%10%40%15%10%
The mod does not appear to be complete, the maps are clearly not tested, the english is some of the worst I've ever seen in a campaign.
38
Starcraft GoldD0minik2007Allyes15Broodwar 1.107%0%15%0%15%0%10%25%5%0%0%5%
Similar to other d0minik campaigns, virtually no effort was put into the design of the maps and the missions.
39
Starcraft HeroesD0minik2007Allyes15Broodwar 1.103%0%10%0%10%10%0%0%0%5%0%0%
Just like Gold, except that you control 1 or 2 hero units instead of the 50 mineral 4 worker base, in fact you aren't allowed to control anything else, even on macro maps... As a result, the campaign is almost completely unplayable.

Newrand CitadelMessiah00Guy2002Pyes7Broodwar 1.1061%55%60%100%70%65%30%60%40%50%70%70%
This could have been good for those looking for a good starcraft story and unique and interesting RPG gameplay but both the design and the story ends up being too overconvoluted. It is also unfinished
42

Broodwar 1.16.1
81%100%100%100%60%70%90%65%65%100%60%80%
The winner of the 2009 interbellum campaign creation competition. Although its mostly micro gameplay style may not appeal to everyone, the fact that such a polished campaign was made in just 2 months is an incredible artistic human achievement in and of itself.
43
Praetor daexanWhiplash Omega2003Xno16Broodwar5%5%0%15%10%5%0%5%0%10%0%7%
Stratostygo meets D0minik meets OrcmastergroM. This campaign rivals Stellar Forces in quality.
44
Warzone Arizona2006Xno9Broodwar23%35%0%80%25%0%35%10%65%0%0%5%
So this is a port of the Arizona campaign in Warzone 2100... without even a mod. Just play the original game instead..?
45
Brothers of LibertyMcNewgin2006Tno11Broodwar41%5%5%90%45%55%75%10%10%70%25%60%
For the First 6 maps, it is an RPG style campaign that suffers from somewhat poor design with its map and gameplay design. The plot carries it for a while and allows the playthrough to continue. However, starting from map 7, the maps become either corrupt or broken and the playthrough had to be aborted.
46
Starcraft SolidJeeeeoker2002Tno12Broodwarno score
Some guy thought it would be a good idea to port metal gear solid into starcraft... need I say more?
47
Dominion, The koprulu crisis
Falchion2007Tno7Broodwar41%20%0%90%90%45%40%40%20%85%10%15%
A macro campaign. The dialog is a little too long but at least the english is passable. The main problem is that the maps are poorly layed out and the triggers are glitchy including some of the funniest bugs I have ever seen.
48
AdunTheProgrammer2009Pno12Broodwar32%20%20%80%30%30%35%15%10%50%0%60%
The campaign is badly designed, the maps are either repurposed multiplayer maps for macro or just really awful micro designs, the dialog is really awful.
49
Yells of freedomOmega202009P&Zno24Broodwar49%70%20%100%30%45%60%55%40%70%0%50%
This is a mostly macro campaign that is similar in plot to starcraft interbellum. The micro maps are all absolutely terrible and virtually unplayable, the macro maps are either really good or really bad but the AI is always idiotic. The plot falls apart at the end of the zerg campaign. The final terran campaign was never made and the campaign is incomplete.
50
Project: BansheeBlade667772005Tyes7Broodwar 1.1061%90%65%100%85%55%45%65%15%70%50%30%

51
State of warFalchion2007Tyes6Broodwar 1.1050%80%55%100%90%40%25%55%10%60%20%10%
Another RPG style terran campaign. It is basically Banshee, but worse, and equally incomplete.
52

Broodwar 1.16.1
38%25%70%80%30%10%15%30%20%55%60%22%
Similar in problems to a StratosTygo campaign, but with some voice acting, custom music, and a mod adding a few OP custom units. the dialogue is extremely cringey
53
KANEKrazy2008P&Tno5Broodwar49%20%10%85%60%70%70%30%25%45%50%75%
A deprecated co-op campaign that was ultimately remade into the will of atai.
54
The Zakat ChroniclesKrazy2008Xno11Broodwarno score
The story of this campaign was deprecated in favor of a remake of KANE called "the will of atai". In addition, only the oldest and worst version of this campaign can be found on the internet so I have no interest in QAing this.
55
SurvivorsGnaReffotsirk2008Xno4Broodwar36%10%0%20%85%30%15%40%65%20%90%25%

56
Total conquestLenny Corbett2004Allyesno score
The second and third episodes are nowhere to be found on the internet and therefore this cannot be recommended. The contact address no longer works and the user "supermot" cannot be found on staredit any longer.
57
Legacy of a warriorMarine2008Tno10Broodwar39%10%0%70%55%45%55%30%15%60%35%50%
It is similar in problems to "Survivors" but to a lesser degree. It also has an additional problem: The in-game dialogue is far too long. Later on the levels begin to break, with no sign of any play testing.to prevent this.
58
Life of a marine bootcampTamas McCoy2007Tyes4SCMLoader68%55%30%100%100%70%75%55%40%70%50%100%
A very short and easy micro campaign, it has custom music however the volume of it is far too loud. The dialogue display time is too short and the pacing is a bit bad. Other than this there are no other issues. The campaign is recommended for casual players interested in a starcraft RPG.
59
Life of a marineTamas McCoy2004Tno8Broodwar56%65%30%30%80%80%60%50%40%45%65%76%
A RPG campaign. The biggest issue with the campaign is the pacing which is far too slow and tiring that it makes the whole campaign a boring chore in the end. After the second mission, more serious problems start to show up and In the end this can't be recommended.
60
Stellar forcesMicroStar1998Xno22Broodwar1%0%0%0%5%0%0%0%0%0%0%8%
The worst campaign ever made for any game. As it turns out I have had it for over 20 years in a folder called "Maps" (inside the normal Maps folder) but only recently did I discover the contents within were even supposed to be a campaign, let alone being stellar forces. "Nuke 'em all" is a good map for testing zerg mods by the way.

Endless warvae_newbis2014Pno6Broodwar32%10%0%75%45%20%20%40%30%70%25%17%
It takes more than a few days of campaign development in order to put one's heart into a project and make it good.
63
The hybrid chroniclesErl Justin Pachero2003P&Tno50Broodwar48%45%0%100%40%75%70%45%35%80%30%10%
This could have been an acceptable, if mediocre, campaign if it were not for the poor design desicions of some of these maps and the absurd grammer and plot mistakes. Clearly there was no playtesting whatsoever despite the sincere effort to create a great campaign.
64
UGFStarSword2006Xno21Broodwar16%0%10%0%75%0%0%10%15%0%60%5%
My response to the mission briefing for the first campaign....
aside from that, this campaign is like an unholy marriage between Odyssey 1 - ToCSSR and Stratospace.
65
Tales of halcyonAndrea rosa2015Tno6Starcraft68%55%10%100%75%100%100%45%55%75%55%80%
While it isn't as good as voices of the swarm, it does provide a great backstory for the original enslavers campaign by blizzard although enslavers redux creates a better one. Recommended for those who aren't interested in playing enslavers redux and prefer the original enslavers campaign. Both go really well with juxtapose's starcraft interbellum campaign as well.
66
Enslavers reduxOmegaWeaponX2017Allyes30StarCraft 283%85%60%100%90%100%100%70%60%100%55%97%
This campaign comes included with StarCraft mass recall. It is a good idea to play episode 1 and 2 of this after playing tales of Halcyon and before playing other custom campaigns as many of them have plots related to this. Episode 3 isn't canon, just another interbellum custom campaign.
67
Reborn stationdon_svetlio2017Tno12Broodwar41%30%0%30%95%65%30%10%40%60%70%16%
Considering that this campaign was made in a few days by some bloke who couldn't even figure out how to take players to the next map upon comleting a mission and getting help from the maker of the disastrous starcraft reincarnation campaign, it is a lot better than expected. Still, It's not good either.
68
DoodanDoodan2010Allno60Broodwar51%30%10%100%75%55%50%50%50%80%50%16%
it is like a stratostygo campaign but with many of the negative elements fixed while a few really glaring ones remain. most notoriously, the names and the dialog are still stratostygo tier. It comes close to being recommended with the cartooned skin but ultimately the plot is too inconsistent to enjoy and the gameplay design is too poorly thought out.
69
New AvalonDaedalus infinity1999Tno5Broodwar51%40%20%100%20%50%65%60%15%70%100%20%
True to the author's namesake, he invented something new for starcraft: the first singleplayer Starcraft RPG campaign. This campaign style would eventually grow to become the standard format of a custom campaign by 2004 until around 2016
