Reviewed: Homeworld

Sierra couldn't have chosen a better soundtrack for Homeworld! The music matches up with the gameplay perfectly. It sounds a bit similar to some of Unreal's music... slightly peaceful, then when the action heats up, the more fast-paced music kicks in and gets your adrenaline pumping! Note: Homeworld best experienced with a kick ass set of speakers! Maybe good speakers should be in the Required System?

Uh oh... They're gonners

Not only is the sound track excellent, but the sound effects fit the package as well. If you've got one of those great sets of speakers, try zooming into a slow destroyer and place yourself right behind the ship; be prepared for your walls to shake and your CD-ROM to skip! (joking on the CD-ROM thing... but it's pretty damn close!) As you zoom out, the sounds get lower and lower, of course. So if you want the full effect of the sounds, it's best to zoom in on the action. Explosions sound full, clear, and crisp. Bottom line: Homeworld's s/fx and soundtrack stomp all over anything you've seen in any other RTS.
