    While not perhaps a classic like its (ahead-of-their-time) predecessors, Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak manages to resurrect the series with aplomb. Yes, even though it's set on a planet.

    While not perhaps a classic like its (ahead-of-their-time) predecessors, Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak manages to resurrect the series with aplomb. Yes, even though it's set on a planet.

    Pros

    • Maintains Homeworld's sense of scale and awe
    • Art direction is superb, from the ships to the sand dunes

    Cons

    • 2D movement limits your options (at least when compared to predecessors)
    • Tough to live up to twelve years of expectations
