Excerpt: Developer: Relic Entertainment Publisher: Sierra Studios Da Introduction Every once in a while a game comes along which is so powerful, so memorable, and so well executed in its design that it gains an accolade like "benchmark product" – which is, as Prima's Official Strategy Guide notes an often unearned term. Homeworld thoroughly deserves this description.
Excerpt: After the success of the original Homeworld, voted by many magazines as one of the best games of 1999 and winner of The Wargamer’s Excellence Award, Relic bring us two more titles. The first of these is Homeworld: Cataclysm, the full-blown follow-up to the original title. Alongside this release is the smaller, free title of Homeworld: Raider Retreat included free with every pre-purchase of its bigger brother.
Excerpt: In the outermost reaches of one of the spiral arms of its galaxy, the people of a isolated planet slowly start to reach into space. Through one of those freak accidents that occasionally happen in science, a powerful satellite, which was sent into orbit to scan the heavens, malfunctions and looks inward to the planet instead. There it finds a large unknown object buried under the sand in a very inhospitable desert.
Excerpt: Ever get the feeling that taking over land just isn't good enough for you? Ever feel like the world of 2D Real-Time Strategy Games gets boring sooner or later? Ever feel like you came from outer space and you'd like to go back to your home planet light years away? Then Homeworld, Relic Entertainment's first game ever, is just for you.
Excerpt: Homeworld review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com Homeworld, like a cheese or wine, has been years in the making. And like a fine hunk of cheese or choice bottle of red bordeaux, is worth the wait. In an industry of rush jobs and last minute updates it is refreshing to see a game that was obviously developed with quality (and not a release date) in mind. Unlike another long awaited RTS game recently released, Homeworld proves that it was worth the long wait.
Conclusion: Homeworld could have had more depth in the Universe (hook up with other fleets for an attack, bigger asteroid belts etc.), it could have emphasised on trading further, yet it didn't. Thankfully the gameplay remains strong and despite the noticeable lack of 3D Sound standards and some of the graphics being a little rusty up close, it remains a strong and worthy game.
