I really liked the original Homeworld…a great story, with revolutionary graphics which blew me away the first time I saw them…but it was a wee bit buggy, and the interface needed more work.
Homeworld: Cataclysm was good too, but different…its Horror-movie storyline took some getting used to (but you did get used to it)…the voice-acting was truly superb though, and often hilarious! (“Ah, roger command…can you speak up?”, said the crusty old Processor captain.)
Homeworld2, while compelling, lacks the depth of storytelling the first two had, and the wit of Cataclysm, but the graphics are simply astounding, the gameplay of acceptable quality, while the interface has received the TLC it needed.
No other game (or series) has captivated me like these ones, and I find myself returning to it on a regular basis. Immersive, intense and riveting, H2 will keep you up nights.
