    Yeah I pre purchased it with the Homeworld RM discount. I'm several missions in and so far I'm really enjoying it, it feels very much Homeworld with a slight Ground Control flavour to it. I haven't really read much of the reviews but In my opinion if you like Homeworld then you'll like this.

    Going to get it soon. Have alot to play before I do.

    I am still curious if the gameplay is anything like the space combat of the precursors. Have not been able to see that reflected in any of the footage I've seen thus far.

    Played a little last night. It's pretty a tough game to learn, but so far liking what I see.

    Liked Homeworld a lot when it came out ages ago. May get lost in this one also.

    I've been playing it all this day. The game is cool. Actually, there is everything in the game modern RTS player wants to see in the RTS. + Great realm of Homeworld.

    The only minus so far is that the company is not very long. To be completely honest - it's short. And the replayability of this kind of games are very low.

    By company do you mean campaign? If so, dammnit. Been kind of looking for an RTS to play but can't find/decide on one.

    It still has more value than Battlefront.

    Seriously though, I'm loving it.

    Buy this game if you like RTS games.

    I enjoyed the story, played it on hard & even though the AI cheats and just chucks units at you it'll almost always ignore it's main carriers. The AI needs a whole lot of work to pose any type of challenge, and this is me who sucks horrifically at rts games *shakes head*.

    Hah every game has more value than BF.

    AI and lack of maps is what seems to hurt this title, maybe they can release more maps later if skirmish and mp is supposed to carry it.

    TotalBiscuit didn't talk too favourably about it recently, I've been waiting for a decent RTS for ages but seems this one is still a bit of a miss for most fans of the genre.

    I'll stick for Generals/Zero Hour for a while longer!
