Homeworld: Cataclysm User Reviews
A huge improvement on everything that was good in the first game, better graphics for a start, a more diverse selection of ships and strategies - rather than sticking with the classic Homeworld solution of building one type of ship and sticking to it. The optiona have been immensly widened over the original, both in multiplayer and single player.The bad:
The bad, hmmm - my main problem with this game is the option of a dificulty level, the originals sheer toughness and high learning curve (or if you didnt know what you where doing - wall) made it a classic, with this game, most noobs would choose "very easy" and blast through it in less than 6 hours, leaving out most of what made this game great.Summary:
Despite my main issue with the dificulty settings, this overall is a great game, it has the depth and strategic options too make you come back and consider another angle too get around the same problem, and the multiplayer online mode is more than enough too keep a person playing for years to come.
The single player mode, like the originals, is the gem of the game - it starts slow, pulling you into the game, and then by level 3 it pulls out the big guns - and in this aspect it doesnt dissapoint.
It has been 15 years since Kharak was incinerated by the Taidani empire, and the Kushan people lea...
The slick graphics, the amazing missions, and the loads of things you can do with a unit make this game one of the best real-time strategy games there is.The bad:
Its freaking addictive. Seriously, I can think nothing bad about this game.Summary:
The game is a major improvement to the original Homeworld. You take control of a mining vessel, later turned into a warship, and face a wretched creatur...but I'm spoiling all the fun, aren't I? You must definitely get this, it'll make you want to play the campaign over and over again. And who knows, the next Homeworld game may be even better!
good graghics (once you tinker with the settings), good spacecraft fighting etc. nice to get a fighter in veiw and send it into battle with others...really neat lookinThe bad:
camera control is annoying...you can only look around while 'watching' a unitSummary:
very cool.a nice space-craft game.
space...the finale place to blow crap up! its kinda like a movie. worth getting imo
Homeworld was one of the best RTS's ever made. With it's rich story and background. Cataclysm is the next chapter to this ever evolving story. With two totally different races more or less. It's inovative user interface makes doesn't get in the way, is easy to use, and brings great efficiency to fleet management. It's too few lvls and the bitter aftertaste for more keep this game from getting a full 5
Extremely good game suited for all those strtegy players out thereThe bad:
If strategy is NOT your thing then this game might not be for youSummary:
This game is amazing nuff said. No really take my word for it. ohhh and if you thought the first one was good then you ain't played homeworld til you have played this.And for those of you new to homeworld and like strategy games like C&C etc YOU WILL LOVE THIS!!
A unique strategy game like no other. A must for any PC owners game collection. And best thing is its not new so you can get it really cheap. SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR GO AND BUY IT!!!!!!!
I didn't put anything in the good and the bad because there is too much to put!
Homeworld: Cataclysm is the best strategy game that I have ever played! It (literally) adds a new dimention to the awesome gameplay. Once you get used to it, the up-down addition to the gameplay adds a huge "Je-Ne -Sais-Quoi" to the game And this the first game to add actuasl gun-moving time. Most strategy games will have units spin around in an instant to point guns at you and shoot. In Cataclysm, If you attack a unit from behind, it has to spin around to return fire.
