Homeworld 2

ActionTrip
23 September 2003
  • Conclusion: Sure, the single-player mode was so challenging it even drew a few sarcastic grins of disbelief out of me, but in the end I ended up longing for more of that frustration. Aren't we gamers a strange bunch? (No, that's just you. - Six)
  • Pros: Highly evolved and matured concept, more intense battles, engrossing storyline, fantastic visuals and sound, a worthy challenge;
  • Cons: Challenge borders on frustrating at times, slight AI glitches (fighter class ships rush even when in defensive mode), sometimes vague objectives, single-player campaign is too short.
