Homeworld: Cataclysm Review
The graphics continue to uphold Homeworld's high standards. Ships are wonderfully detailed and can be given a custom color scheme. Space is not an empty void, but a kaleidoscope of swirling gasses and nebulae. The 3D animation is very fluid - you can easily zoom in and rotate the camera around a pitched battle with nary a frame drop in sight. In short, Cataclysm's attention to detail and quality of execution together make its graphics great.
Cataclysm continues the Homeworld legacy with a first-rate musical score. The variety of music evokes feelings of being in the midst of the vastness of space better than anything since Space Mountain. And its quality music to boot! Not your typical repetitive pseudo-rocky/techno that you come to expect from real-time games.
In The End, This Game Hath Been Rated: 90%. Cataclysm has made some welcome improvements to the excellent original game and provides more fun with the best real-time space combat game to date.
System Requirements: 266 MHz PII CPU, 32 MB RAM, 4x CD-ROM, 100 MB Hard Drive Space, 4MB Video Card, Mouse.
