How good is the Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak story?

It feels familiar, in a good way. Like the originals, it's a story of trials, of huge undertakings and big risks to save an entire people. It feels a bit more personal this time, however, with characters like Rachel S'jet giving the journey a face.

Can you get away with just rushing the enemy in Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak?

Not really. It's a slower, more tactical RTS than, say, StarCraft II, and with terrain being so important, rushing the enemy might just leave your troops demolished at the bottom of a hill.

The sound design is fantastic. The wind rushing through desert canyons, the rumble of engines, the gunfire -- it all comes together to make Deserts of Kharak's maps and battles feel like real, tangible things.

It's gorgeous. Vehicles are ultra detailed, and even though each map is just another desert battlefield, they are rich in little touches that make them distinct, like ancient crashed ships that dwarf your squads.
