"We all know Homeworld is a great game, and Gearbox has done an exceptional job of bringing the classic IP back into the limelight. The redesigned UI works well, the graphical upgrades are majestic, and everything you’d hoped for is in there (unless you wanted Cataclysm, but there’s a very good reason for its absence). I guess I should have had more faith in the dudes who made Borderlands; turns out they’re not just great at making FPS games. I’m left feeling a lot more confident about Shipbreakers, which is clearly in good hands."
