Homeworld Review

 

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...

This game really surprised me when I first started playing it. I never expected to see such great detail in the background, the ability to see some space battles really up close, and a storyline that just made me wish I was really there just to witness...

Product Specifications

Here at last is your chance to play Sierra's intricate 3D space shooter. The game remains true to its real-time strategy form and has all the elements other titles in the genre have, including resource management, unit/structure construction and tactical warfare. The key difference between Homeworld and other RTS's however, is the addition of a Z-plane, or 3rd dimension. This means that in addition to being able to move north/south, east/west and all directions in between, the units in Homeworld can also travel up and down in a true 3D environment. Homeworld has an intricate back-story: the inhabitants of a desert planet stumble upon a buried space ship and come to the realization that they aren't originally of that world. Through reverse engineering techniques these people are able to construct a spaceship of their own and head off into deep space to find their home world, hence the title. Even though it looks complex, Homeworld's tactical interface is surprisingly easy to use. You'll find yourself building ships, attacking pirates, and scavenging asteroids in a matter of minutes!
