Homeworld Remastered Collection Review: A Triumphant Homecoming I The Koalition

Asad Quadri of The Koalition writes:
1999 saw the release of a video game that would change the way real-time strategy games are played. It was the first ever attempt at creating a fully three-dimensional strategy game set in space which told a captivating story about a group’s struggle to regain what was taken from them with mystical and deep mythos detailing legends and ancient civilizations. That game was Homeworld. From developers Relic and publishers Sierra, they had successfully created the very first 3D space strategy game with perfected gaming mechanics, stunning graphics, and flawless sound design.

The success continued with Homeworld 2 with improved mechanics and the continued story of the brave Hiigarans standing their ground against overwhelming odds. For years to come, other space strategy games would attempt to emulate Homeworld’s perfection while adding a few nice touches of their own. Now from developers Gearbox, Homeworld 1 and 2 has been brought into the new generation of PC gaming. The original games have been re-released in addition to remastered versions complete with enhanced graphics and effects. It’s time once again to strategize, travel and fight through the void of outer space with the Homeworld Remastered Collection.

I have heard nothing but good things about this remastered collection. Hopefully this game will also come to PS4 and Xbox One in the not too distant future.

I'm not really into RTS games like that but I give the genre respect. This should be a cool collection for fans of the series.

The Best Space RPG Games Not Named Mass Effect

Xfire writes: "If you thought that the three games that make up the Mass Effect franchise (and no, Andromeda doesn't count) are the only space RPG games worth talking about, then you're wrong. While the Mass Effect franchise no doubt deserves all the love, there are other space RPG games out there too."

I honestly don't get why Mass Effect gets the hype it does while failing to develop the potential the first game presented.

I mean it went from promising sci-fi RPG, to sci-fi themed shooter with an ever lamer hack story - I'm looking at you Andromeda.

Sounds like every game/IP/Developer bought by EA.

sagapo1109d ago

Can’t say I agree with you here; first ME was great but a bit rough around the edges, but ME2 ironed out most of those, and still remains my favourite part. ME3 equally good but with a controversial ending.
I agree on Andromeda, that was mediocre at best imho.

Smok911109d ago

Have you looked at the first 3 games?

Godmars2901109d ago

Own and played ME2, own two versions of ME1. Have yet to play either.

ME2 was more about character presentation, not story. If it had been about story, it would have been about the direct fallout of a Reaper crashing into the Citadel. A "Shadow War" between various intelligence groups among the races, some infuriated by Reaper allies, as the Reaper allies themselves with Shepard caught in between building up to the suicide mission. Instead the game was just the mission which really - despite the Reaper baby - had nothing to do with what's suppose to be the over arching story of the Reaper invasion.

ME as a franchise is great ME 2 probably my favorite out of the series ME 3 the ending was kind of a let down ME 1 I liked as well. Andromeda still have to brave that one grabbed it $10 new only other space rpg I love is the Xenosaga trilogy. I wish Namco would get off the ass and remaster the damn trilogy so I can rebuy it and reenjoy it again as for Destiny 2 I am not a fan of it not my type of game and the other games on the list don't even peak my interest.

Homeworld was an absolute revelation when it was released. Have not had a chance to try out the remaster. Such a great great game.
