As the title suggests. I’m wondering if the remastered collection is worth getting.
Homeworld is one of my favourite games ever and Homeworld 2 was a great sequel although, in my opinion, not quite as spectacular as the original. Now I’ve seen lots of screenshots of the remastered versions and a couple of HD videos and the quality of the visuals just doesn’t seem what I expected.
To explain further, it simply looks like a resolution upscaling of the textures over the existing engine and models. I was expecting less polyhedron-looking ships, curves, more intricate 3D ship details rather than just more stuff painted on a flat surface texture.
Am I mistaken or is this what we’ve got and am I being a bit harsh? I just expected more and I’m not feeling it, it just looks like the same game cranked up in resolution rather than new models, new textures and new environments created in native HD.
I’d love to support the developers of this, but I’m not seeing a drastic difference and can’t justify the price so if anyone can offer any further insight that would be great because it would be a shame if this spark of interest in the old series were to die out because of lack of interest if the developers intend to do something really great with a sequel or similar, but it’s of this quality I think it might be disappointing.
