"This review pains me to write because I genuinely enjoy Deserts of Kharak. It seems like Blackbird Interactive had a solid idea of what they wanted to deliver, and realised that vision fantastically with a well-developed set of mechanics and unit dynamics. Fans of the original Homeworld games, in particular, will appreciate it’s authentic revival of the franchise. I hope they fix these issues and implement the missing features soon before it’s too late and the multiplayer community dies off."
