Homeworld Remastered Collection
Gearbox gives Homeworld the respect it deserves in this impressive refitting of Relic's classic
With space battles now more spectacular than even the evergreen Eve Online, and with far less effort required to enjoy them, this sees two excellent games restored. While in a past it was tricky to argue a decisive case for either of the Homeworld games for greatest RTS of all time, now they've been forever merged, updated and supplemented with the original games, the collection is indispensable.
A worthy upgrade to one of the best strategy games ever, featuring the best space battles in the business.
A near perfect remastering of a classic strategy game, that succeeds not just because of nostalgia but because there's never been anything else quite like Homeworld.
Thanks to graphic and audio enhancements alongside a few quality of life changes, Homeworld is still an enjoyable experience
Not every change in this collection is for the best, but Homeworld and Homeworld 2 remain gorgeous classics that withstand the test of time.
It's a real pleasure to play Homeworld Remastered Collection, especially given the rarity of real-time space strategy games, and Gearbox Software has done a great job of upgrading the audio and video. The gameplay in particular holds up very nicely, and proves that the original was well ahead of its time. Unfortunately, it's held back a bit by its clumsy interface, and formations are currently quite broken, which will hurt its standing with long-time fans. But all that said, it's hard not to love Homeworld Remastered Collection's striking and memorable space battles, which have very much stood the test of time.
Whether you're a fan of sci-fi, real-time strategy, or simply just video games in general, Homeworld Remastered Collection is a must-have if you haven't played the series before. For those who spent years guarding their precious pressings of these classics, it's time to rejoice, the Homeworld series is just as good as you remember it.
