Homeworld 2 continues the epic struggle of the Hiigarans and their leader Karan S'jet. Many thought their hardships would end when they returned to Hiigara, yet fate has not been so kind to the Exiles. Now the Hiigarans face a new and bitter enemy, a renegade clan from the eastern fringes of the galaxy, who wield the power of the ancients. Homeworld 2 chronicles the valiant journey of the Mothership and its crew into the oldest regions of the galaxy to confront their new foe and discover the truth behind their exile.
This game continued a great legacy left by homeworld 1, the story here I found to be just as engaging and I really felt like I was helping the Hiigarans achieve their destiny. While the single player campaign does limit you to the Hiigarans this time rather then a choice, it was done because the races play so differently now, it is no longer possible to allow you to play either. While I was a little put off by this it did allow me to get immersed in the story a lot better. I was even able to construct a small narrative of my own with some ships that lived from the beginning of the game all the way to the final mission.
Now after the campaign is done I jumped straight into a 1v1 with an A.I so I could test to see what it would do. Surprisingly it did well for a while, even though it was a stomping on easy and normal. On hard it put up some resistance but eventually I beat it. Then on expert I had to endure a few defeats as the A.I. was very good and provided several good games, unfortunately as the A.I is quite old it was not able to think very smart and it has the same pattern it must follow so after a while you will know how to beat it.
However this game can still be a lot of fun if you can play with a friend, I played many games over the internet and had a great time. I can say with absolute confidence that this game deserves a 10/10 and is a must own for fans of the strategy genre and fans of the sci-fi genre as it contains so much story and content that has kept me entertained for hours.
