Homeworld was one of the games that was above and beyond in terms of strategy. it was a very tactical game. A lot of vets in multiplayer compared it to chess. No game did what home world accomplished even to this day. What should have happened for Homeworld to grow is to put out add-ons instead trying to recreate the gameplay in Homeworld 2. It was a flop. Homeworld 2 is a step backwards. Any gamer that gave Homeworld a chance and became decent at the game understood the game mechanics and knew this game is something special.
Now HW:R doesn’t work. Fighters don’t hold formation. I won’t even get into corvettes… just plain awful.
Original homeworld had great battles and now in the remastered version a few seconds later its all over.
Why can’t support frigates use magic beam? So what it’s not realistic. It added more depth to the game. They had to be micromanaged to heal frigates or corvettes
so you could actually last longer and if done right you could actually get the upper hand in battles even if you had less ships.
Now nothing works.
