don't know if anyone played the first one. i did a search in this forum for "homeworld" and nothing came up. i can't believe that no one would be into this game here!

anyway, if you like strategy games like warcraft/starcraft C&C and such, you will LOVE homeworld! it's space combat real time strategy in 3-d. you can spin the "camera" all around your ships, focus on single ones, move them around the area of space each board takes place in, and create flying formations out of your ships...

anyway, the second one will be coming out sometime in the middle of september, and it looks even crazier than the first!

well, as if anyone cares, there's a demo out now...

it's better to get it from www.download.com - just search for "homeworld 2" on the main screen...

it's really cool!

The game's actually out now. I saw it at EB today when I bought Jedi Academy. :)
