The highly-anticipated follow up title includes multiplayer competition for up to six players, in addition to an engrossing single-player saga.

We're proud to offer this game as a continuation of the esteemed Homeworld franchise."

That GameSpy reviewer was a jackass. He marked the game down because he was rubbish at the game. That's just poor. Anyway, what person wants a game so easy, it'll be beaten in a few hours? At least with HomeWorld you always had some longevity.
