5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the greatest rts franchise of all time 16 July 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Homeworld 2 is sequel to the greatest space rts games ever made (homeworld 1 and cataclysm) that leaves you wanting more

the graphics were ground breaking when released but by todays standards (2010) there just pretty.
The advantage of that is that the game will play extremely well on most modern systems.

Homeworld 2 see's you as supreme commander of the higaran mothership once again to battle it out in a 3d space environment with dozens of ships to build research and upgrade and hordes of enemy starships to battle and destroy.

the single player missions are engaging and fun with plenty to keep you on the edge of you seat there is also an on-line multi or skirmish mode with upto 6 players on one map which is just buckets of fun.
The control system is a great improvement on the original but can be a little difficult to get the hang of but the game comes with a tutorial mode witch will get you ready for battle.

Homeworld 2 is by far one of the best games of all time and i would recommend it to anyone who has a interest in sci fi or realtime strategy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old But Gold 21 Jan 2013
By SP4x
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a game fondly remembered.

Nothing since has come close to matching the Homeworld series for RTS storytelling, scale and spectacle.

Buyer beware though; if you like your games to wet nurse you from start to finish, like so many do these days, then you best move right along.
This game is a tough nut to crack, the AI will always provide a challenge and lets face it that's where a true sense of achievement lies.

If you're going to invest time in the best Space-based RTS (In my humble opinion) then I would recommend you start at the beginning;
Homeworld
Homeworld (PC)

Follow that up with Homeworld Cataclysm
Homeworld: Cataclysm (PC)

Then, and only then, will you be ready to fully appreciate Homeworld 2.
Homeworld 2 (PC)

One day I hope there will be a true successor to two, if that lottery win I'm due comes in then there will be ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars A good little game 13 July 2012
By Doug
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased it and played it. it will help you while away a good few hours. The build options for me where hard to get to grips with at 1st. And it is more taxing than some of the build and fight games but overall worth a punt.

4.0 out of 5 stars not as good as the first one but good on its own 28 Dec 2013

It's missing the formations and fighter fuel limits that made the first game more tactical but the ship abilities, subsystems and modules make up the difference
