Summary: This game takes me back. I love the games grandness, for the day that it was made and released, it was pretty cutting edge. That said, once you install the game you will that it is an older game. once you get past that I think you will love this game. Picture it, you're a group of lost humans trying to find your way home...Earth. The mechanics is like most game you send out collectors to gather space materials to build up you fleet.
Summary: Following instructions it installed and runs,able to play on my Windows 7 Ultra 32 Bit system.Installed and runs real good on my computers system.The quality of the game is excellent and the syfy story line that takes place in the future is very good also,I find it interesting,I like this game.I think its worth the money.
Summary: This is the second time that I have owned this game. It's always worth the price. Graphics are starting to look a little dated. But, overall it was way ahead of it's time. If you like strategy roll games with a scifi tilt, you'll love this one.
Summary: This is an awesome space strategy game with full 3D effects. The units you finish a mission with are the ones you get at the start of the next mission. The story is excellent and the music is worth the price of the game alone. Every now and then the camera will anger me, but no other complaints. Works well with windows XP.
Summary: I have been a fan of Sierra's "Homeworld" series for a long time. I played this game until my wife almost left me. The graphics were great, the controls, story, cinematics, and audio were addictive and truly first rate. I was immersed in the gameplay and the strategy for hours at a time. It's not a fast game by any means and required (at the time) a lot of my comp's resources just to run the graphics. Very cerebral and fun to play.
Summary: Homeworld has a great mix of gameplay and graphics that redefines 3d gaming strategy. The maps are mostly huge and of course 3d. This creates long missions, making it long to even finish a skirmish. Even with it's great graphics and gameplay, Homeworld lacks a good storyline for both races. The movies in the games are poorly done. The soundtrack has some nice songs but not a lot. The songs soon get quite repetitive.
Summary: When I first started playing this game, I was awestruck by the amazing graphics. I installed it, everything ran smoothly, and even though the tutorial level was extremely long, I didn't tire of it simply because everything was so impressive looking, even at the meager 640x480 res I started at.
Summary: I'm not an RTS (real time strategy) fanatic by any stretch of the imagination -- but I was eager for this game. This game plays extremely well as a single player game -- complete with new twists to the real-time genre: no buildings, you keep your fleet with you from scenario to scenario, full 3D space (with intuitive controls).
