Summary

Great sequel to a classic game.

The Good

It isn’t an add-on pack, but a completely new title. The gameplay was the best feature from the first Homeworld, and Cataclysm adds to that with some great new features and improving on others from the original. Much effort has been put into the presentation, with a nicely put together manual, great visuals, and a captivating story.

The Bad

You really need to be a pro of the original to get the best out of this. Still, it’s easier then the original in some ways, but beginners will struggle (with the story as well as the gameplay, if you are yet to play the first game)

The Bottom Line

A great follow-up to Homeworld. This is the type of game that deserves a movie or TV series. The story is an event in itself.
