  • There might have been some worries when the series ended up in the hands of new developer Gearbox, but they've proven to be unfounded; Homeworld Remastered Collection has been handled with the care and attention it deserves, and is worth a place in the library of any self-respecting fan of strategy games, spaceships or little things flying around going pew pew pew.

  • Gearbox has set the bar for how to update an old game for a modern audience. The slick new UI, the minor control improvements, and the updated graphics make these two strategy masterpieces into an experience even greater than the originals.

  • Homeworld Remastered Collection not only brings two classic games back for longtime fans, it will surely capture a new generation with its unique perspective, brilliant storyline, and engrossing gameplay.

    Years go by and Homeworlds remain the best real-time space strategies ever created. [04/2015, p.68]

  • Homeworld Remastered Collection is a testament to game development done right, both in its original form and in the meticulously updated version, and one that should not be overlooked by any fan of the genre.

  • A worthy upgrade to one of the best strategy games ever, featuring the best space battles in the business.

  • Homeworld was, at the time, my favorite RTS. With the release of Homeworld Remastered Collection, this game has crawled back into my heart and is now firmly planted there for quite some time to come.

  • Gearbox has taken two of the finest RTSs ever made and turned them into something you’d be proud to show off on any modern gaming PC. Fans of the originals will fall in love with this, and if you missed them the first time around you’re getting two of the very best RTSs ever made with this.

  • Gearbox Software today owns the Homeworld IP and remastering the originals might seem a ‘cash grab’ at first glance, but considering the enormity of their effort to bring Relic’s space RTS masterpiece of the late 90s and early 2000s into today’s gaming arena, they more than prove their commitment.

  • Homeworld Remastered Collection is a huge proposition, an indelible package, and it deserves to remain a towering monolith in the RTS game canon as long as possible... And now, I think that maybe it's not so bad feeling tiny.

  • An excellent remaster: this real-time strategy gem is now available with beautiful, breathtaking graphics.

  • Playing the remastered Homeworlds is a trip through memory lane. Carried by the original’s fantastic story, the series has been restored to the point that it feels and plays like a brand new game.

  • Homeworld Remastered Collection is one of the best reissues ever. This package has been prepared by fans for fans. The graphics look phenomenal, the gameplay model did not age at all and the satisfaction after completing some more difficult missions is as big as it used to be 15 years ago. Gearbox simply nailed it.

  • Homeworld is just as revolutionary in 2015 as it was in 1999—and now it looks great too.

  • An essential pair of games for your collection, beautifully remastered and enhanced.

  • Homeworld Remastered Collection simultaneously lives up to the legacy of the series while forging ahead with updated graphics and UI elements. Genre fans will love this collection, while others should be able to find something to enjoy with all that it contains.

  • The Homeworld Remastered Collection offers players access to two of the best space based strategy titles ever created and to do so on modern machines, with no worries about compatibility or other hardware problems, which means that the fan community should be grateful for the work that Gearbox has put in.

  • The Homeworld collection is a fantastic and complex RTS that will challenge players with an almost intimidating amount of depth of choice.

  • Homeworld Remastered Collection is so good that you shouldn't let it go. It's an amazing piece of work to honor one of the best strategy game series ever.

  • A near perfect remastering of a classic strategy game, that succeeds not just because of nostalgia but because there’s never been anything else quite like Homeworld.

  • The epic scale of space battles and awe-inspiring backdrops they take place in make the Homeworld Remastered Collection a must own for real-time strategy fans.

  • Homeworld is back in great shape, and you won't regret diving into your best sci-fi memories.

  • An act of love coming from the past to give a future to real time strategy games.

  • A "remastered" done really well that provides dozens of hours of gameplay and not only caters to the nostalgics, but winks to anyone who is looking for a great real-time strategy game.

  • As a modern re-release of two classic games, the Homeworld Remastered Collection should ultimately be considered a benchmark. Gearbox have delivered on all fronts: visuals, playability, compatibility and spirit. It’s also a heck of a lot of fun.

  • Homeworld: The Remastered Collection does a fantastic job of polishing up and reintroducing these formerly hard-to-experience classic real-time strategy games.

  • A real blast from the past. A wonderful remake of the first two titles of the Homeworld saga, with awesome new graphics and a revamped UI that improve an already excellent RTS. A true must-have, no questions asked.

  • Homeworld Remastered Collection is the perfect 4K remaster for two great classics. This HD collection gets a better graphical design, better sound production and better gameplay. The space of Kharak awaits once again.

  • The only problem with Homeworld Remastered Collection is that it misses out on Homeworld Cataclysm, a worthy stand-alone. Otherwise, we deal here with a really polished remake where everything has been done in the right way.

  • For a modest price of $34.99, the Homeworld Remastered collection gives you an experience like no other in the real-time strategy genre. There are games out there like Sins of a Solar Empire that try to emulate what Homeworld did, but others don’t compare.

  • It meets my long-cherished desire to see one of my favorite games in contemporary garb.

  • Beyond pulling some of the control features of Homeworld 2 back into Homeworld 1, the gameplay of the remastered versions is as near as I can tell identical to the earlier ones.

  • The glorious visuals and soundtrack make one feel like they are redirecting an episode of the recent Battlestar Galatica reboot.

  • The huge amount of work that went into modernising and reinterpreting the many visuals, from the ships to the wonderfully abstract nebulous backdrops feel like a massive love letter to both the original game, and to the fans who love it.

  • Homeworld Remastered is a no-brainer for anyone with a passing interest in science fiction and space strategy games. Gearbox did a terrific job with the HD visuals, but the original Homeworld suffers from some cuts to the core formula in terms of the now useless formations. Yet, those kind of details will only really bother the most hardcore of fans – everyone else is in for a sometimes unforgiving, but unique RTS.

  • If you never experienced the Homeworld titles during their initial run, this collection is a great way to take a look at an incredible RTS experience in a world that sees the genre waning.

  • If Homeworld Remastered Collection were to be released now as a totally new title rather than a classic game with a polished sheen, it would be a complete revolution in strategy gaming. As it is now, Homeworld 1 & 2 stand up incredibly well to their modern contemporaries thanks to a little elbow grease and a lot of fiddling. Yes it may not be as great as it used to be, but it’s definitely a more cohesive experience.

  • This is the original Homeworld viewed through the filter of Homeworld 2, which implemented changes to pathing and projectile damage that don't always feel logical in the earlier game.

  • While we’re sceptical about the rather rushed out nature of this remaster, it has to be said that Homeworld is still a fantastic Real Time Strategy game and should be in the library of any one with an interest in the genre.

  • LEVEL (Czech Republic)

    New visuals and other improvements raise this excellent series to the next level. There are even original games in this collection – must have for all hardcore-nostalgia players. [Issue#251]

  • This Remastered Collection proves to be a great graphical update of a masterpiece that stood the test of time.

  • Thanks to the audiovisual improvements Homeworld over-shines its modern competitors even in the year 2015. The remastered version has yet few mistakes that do not always stem from the game’s age. However, it's still a great game and fun, so those few mistakes can’t ruin your experience.

  • It looks fantastic and boasts a story worth telling, but perhaps the most satisfying thing about this update is that it offers both long-term fans and new recruits the same thing: a solid, rewarding and relevant space RTS that belies its significant age.

  • PC PowerPlay

    Mesmerising setting, story and battling. Just beautiful. [Apr 2015, p.62]

  • Whether you’re a fan of sci-fi, real-time strategy, or simply just video games in general, Homeworld Remastered Collection is a must-have if you haven’t played the series before.

  • The occasional rough edges show, like its overly sluggish pace and sonorous quiet, but for those who can push through the silence you'll find a deep and engaging strategy title with a solid campaign and enough replayability to keep you entertained until the inevitable Ultra HD VR re-release another fifteen years from now.

  • About half of the mechanics don’t work as before and some are simply absent. As a result, people who’ve played the original Homeworld get confused by the remake: it looks like the same game, but the gameplay isn’t. [April 2015, p.68]

  • The Homeworld games are lonely at the top when it comes to strategy games and even after ten years, the quality of Relic Entertainments early work is in an excellent state. The remaster by Gearbox Software is very welcome. The surroundings makes our mouths water, but the bugs make us cringe.

  • The gameplay in particular holds up very nicely, and proves that the original was well ahead of its time. Unfortunately, it's held back a bit by its clumsy interface, and formations are currently quite broken, which will hurt its standing with long-time fans.
