The release of the original Homeworld could be called a successful one, and not without reason. Star Trek type command games are surprisingly popular with PC owners. Sierra used this fact to their full advantage, and are continuing to do so with the second instalment of the series, Homeworld: Cataclysm. A sequel to any game should have enough differences from the original to make it an individual title, but at the same time, should bear enough resemblance to familiarise itself with its predecessors. Homeworld: Cataclysm is a fine example.

As with the first game, Homeworld: Cataclysm’s setting is an infinite one. The spatial environments are endless and will continue for as long as you can be bothered to explore. In addition, the 3D cameras can be fully manipulated and focus points can be altered, allowing for easy access viewing methods. Once the game mechanics set the wonderfully rendered environments, it’s time to get into the game proper. Tactics have been improved, giving players a wider range of options to play around with. There are 18 new ships and as many as 25 new technologies to research. Put this together with 17 all new stand-alone missions, and you’ve got yourself a genuine space adventure.
