I purchased Homeworld Remastered, lovingly developed by Gearbox Software from the over-a-decade-old originals by Relic Entertainment, in February. Well, that’s not entirely true, as I gobbled up the special edition almost a year ago last July, but I first played it in February.
So, without further ado, here’s my review. This was an exciting game for me, as I loved the originals. I hope you don’t mind my enthusiasm.
1. GAMEPLAY – 10/10
HOLY CRAP THIS GAME IS AWESOME. YOU CONTROL GIANT SPACESHIPS WITH LASERS, MISSILES, AND OTHER ASSORTED DESTRUCTIVE MECHANISMS THAT EXPLODE AND/OR DEFENESTRATE. SO MUCH FUN. ONE TIME, I CAPTURED 60 OF THE ENEMY’S FRIGATES AND THEN SQUISHED THE REST OF HIS FLEET INTO SALAD MADE OF WORMS. CAN YOU DO THIS IN CALL OF DUTY? I DO NOT BELIEVE SO, NO
2. SOUND/MUSIC – 10/10
HOLY CRAP LISTEN TO THIS
IF THIS DOES NOT PUMP YOU UP YOU NEED SOME HELP
OR HOW ABOUT THIS
I’M REALLY SAD AND MOVED NOW. YOU SHOULD BE TOO. HOT DANG
3. GRAPHICS – 10/10
HOLY CRAP THESE GRAPHICS ARE AMAZEBALLS. GEARBOX MADE THEM UP TO 4K, WHICH IS A LOT I THINK. HERE ARE SOME OF MY VERY OWN SCREENSHOTS. DO NOT TELL ME YOU ARE NOT MOVED BY THEIR BEAUTY. RIGHT CLICK THE PICTURES AND SELECT VIEW IMAGE TO SEE IT IN ALL ITS HIGH RESOLUTION GLORY
4. OVERALL – 10/10
THIS GAME IS LIKE SPACE: LARGE, AWESOME, AND FUN AS BALLS. PLAY IT
