Homeworld: Remastered Collection, Gearbox Software’s definitive edition of the legendary RTS, arrives today on GOG.com in time for the release of a major update to enhance the game for all players.
Truth be told: I’ve never played Homeworld or Homeworld 2 before this review. Though I have played Relic’s games that have come after Homeworld, like the Company of Heroes series to the Dawn of War series. I had always heard great things about the Homeworld series, but there wasn’t any easy way to play them. Thanks to Gearbox Software acquiring the IP in 2013, that is no longer an issue. Now having played Homeworld and Homeworld 2, I’ve never played RTS’ so beautiful or well-crafted from 1999 and 2003, respectfully.
