What Gamespot Users have to say about Homeworld: Cataclysm

  • User Rating 9

    A story that's, in my opinion, superior to the original Homeworld

    Rated on August 14, 2009 by Lyeneil

    Gameplay The biggest change one will notice in the gameplay is the ability of the mothership to move around. After playing Homeworld, I was itching to start immediately without getting over those ...

    Cataclysm is a great addition to the Homeworld saga. It intoduces many new ships, research technologies, and stategies to the Homeworld galaxy. The plot is probably the best part of the game because...

    Probably the best RTS, ever.

    When I first got this several years ago, I was hooked. Not only is the gameplay fantastic, but the graphics are great even by today's standards. I spend hours playing this game and looking for Homewor...

    Its the one time something out did Homeworld.

    The thing here is, if you've played the original and then jumped into Cataclysm you've hopefully been floored by the scope of the game itself. Merely an expansion to the original? A very well made m...

    Better than the sequel, but still lacking

    Rated on October 28, 2005 by BadgerRavenmoon

    To be honest, no one seems to give Cataclysm its due. The concept was interesting, and certainly original relative to other games that came before. But because it compared so weakly to its predeceso...

    While it deviates a bit from the original, Cataclysm continues the same amazing gameplay its series is known for.

    The prospect of a game, fully exploiting all six axes of direction where "up" or "down" has next to no meaning, has always been a great pull for this reviewer. In other words, this reviewer is plenty ...

    Cataclysm has alot to offer for both Homeworld veterans and newcomers to the series, and is thus highly recommendable.

    Homeworld: Cataclysm is an expansion to Homeworld, but its not like most expansions in several ways. First off, its a stand-alone expansion, so if your curious where Relic got the idea to make Dawn of...

    It's got it's ups and downs (spoilers)

    Rated on December 02, 2005 by Yoshi_Lover

    With this sequel to the award winning Homeworld you are thrown back into the universe of Homeworld. In this sequel you play as a struggling Kith in the complex new government of the Homeworld. You pla...

    a very unappreciated game, in my perspective it should get the game of the year award...

    Rated on December 05, 2005 by DragonKiller17

    A sequel to homeworld, not actually a sequal but a stand alone game in the homeworld universe. Again, the most major thing that makes this game fit in with Homeworld, is that the story line is kick as...
