    Being a huge fan of the original Homeworld, and an even bigger fan of the Homeworld: Cataclysm follow-up, I had high hopes for this game. I won't say that I'm completely disappointed, because I'm not, but this certai... Read Full Review

    Still A Worthy Game

    Okay, there's a lot of griefing in some of these reviews about Homeworld 2 being 2 hard. Wah wah wah. I'm more of a RPG, turn based fan. I don't like Diablo style games, first person shooters and real time games are... Read Full Review

    THis is a good game to buy, and don't listen to Karmafarmer's 4.4 review. The games AI DOES send wave after wave of units to attack you...on hard mode. Begginers can enjoy the games easy mode, where the Ai will only send... Read Full Review

    I literally just finished this game about an hour ago. I can't help but say that I'm still awestruck at how fun this game was. I never really had the opportunity to play the original Homeworld game or the Cataclysm exp... Read Full Review

    It is a impressive game, however there are some things missing. It also has some crashing problems when running everything max 1600*1200 ect. I feel like they have taken some of the stratgy out of the game. Some of yo... Read Full Review

    Homeworld 2 Homeworld 2 is obviously the sequel from Homeworld. It would be unfair and unjust to think that Homeworld 2 would surpass the graphical marvel that Homeworld, or even Cataclysm, were in their golden da... Read Full Review

    I'm very disappointed with this game. I like RTS games in general and was expecting this game to be a break from the typical Warcraft/AOE clones that populate the genre, but boy was I misguided. This game is tedious, f... Read Full Review
