SummaryHomeworld : Game of the Year Edition = A great way to end the 20th century.
The GoodPretty much everything. The music is awesome, good enough to be the soundtrack of a big budget film. The graphics look spectacular, especially the backgrounds. The movies in between missions are excellent, and have an interesting sort of...Star Wars in anime type feel. The voice acting, though not perfect, is Pretty Darn Good, and the voices for the Garden emissary and the Bentusi captain are of particular note. The sound effects are excellent, and really do a great job of making you feel like you really are controlling a vast fleet. The missions, though difficult and sometimes frustrating, can be not only won, but mastered if the correct tactics are applied. Lastly, the AI uses sound tactics, though said tactics are a tad predictable (the most glaring case is in the 11th mission, Tenhauser Gate).
The BadIt doesn't come with a mission editor. It really would have been nice to have been able to make your own single player missions/campaigns. A ship editor would have been nice too. Other than that, no complaints.
