    Great graphics, mediocre gameplay, poor storytelling.

    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

    Hard but fair

    The game has a relatively steep learning curve for first timer mainly due to the 3D environment. Might get motion sickness with all the spinning around to get the "right" height for the ships to ascend or descend. The ... Read Full Review

    A great space strategy game

    This game is the best space strategy game I have ever played. It has a good way of placing you into space with the 3-D map instead of some usual 2-D space strategy games. This makes the game have some more strategy if yo... Read Full Review

    Some people hate it (too slow). Most people love it. Great graphics and gameplay make it a must have.

    If you hate slow games, don't bother with it. It can be slightly slow paced but there are a plethora of mods which "fix" that aspect of gameplay. It's basically like any other RTS except better and in 3d which opens up... Read Full Review

    Long live Homeworld

    I can't believe how people can honestly give this game a score of 3.0!!! WTF? This game deserves better than 3.0. That is just plain insulting towards Relic who has made an extremely good game here. Everybody is addressi... Read Full Review

    The prequel was good, this one had me hooked.

    The one thing I can say about this game is that it made me quit being lazy and build a new computer for myself just so I could play this one. A friend of mine introduced me to this and I have no regrets for committing to... Read Full Review
