While space opera fans Homeworld Deserts of Kharak download marveled last year in front of the revived return of the first two episodes of the Homeworld franchise, Gearbox was preparing in the privacy of what could breathe a new wind of his foal, recovered from the THQ’s body. Needless to say, the bet of taking the name Homeworld was bold. But when you get the services of Blackbird Interactive, whose eminent members are alumni of … Relic, there is something to be optimistic about. Deserts of Kharak, a kind of prelude to the galactic brothel that we liked to orchestrate fifteen years ago, offers us enough to take a good dose of sci-fi in the face, leaving once the galaxy is in plan to focus on the action the toes sunk under the hot sand. Towards a return to grace of the series?.
Exit the traditional and endless journeys in the stars of the galaxy, it is of course on land, or sand more exactly, that one is invited to follow the adventures of Rachel S’jet and the crew of Kapisi . Towards the endless desert of Kharak, whose name will have a particular resonance for the fans of the series, a hundred years before the epic of the first episode, with the heavy task of finding the “Primal Anomaly” that will save this world in agony. Some hostile peoples will not hesitate to disrupt the process, the routine of the player of STR. What to share during thirteen missions the fate of a team of brave researchers and soldiers in the footsteps of a mysterious artifact entered in the legend, while discovering various anomalies that dot the sandy stretches, cutting completely with the knowledge of the protagonists, leading to the reconstitution of a distant and fragmented past.
From the passage from space to earth, references to the first two episodes, ship carcasses and other “religious” allusions will be numerous and will constitute major challenges in the progress of the campaign. It relies mainly on an excellent narrative, which is largely worked, even more than in the past if it is possible. Each mission is introduced by a cut-scene as excellent as immersive, which often fills the class, and indicates us at the same time that the next tens of minutes will not be easy. But the real treat does not stop there because the plot will be served even during missions, just to make the transition from one goal to another. This is good enough to involve the player in a frame rather agreed, but that does not become plan-plan so far.
The objectives remain varied, even if the player who foams all STR will remain in conquered territory. Defend an area at the risk of his life, find a specific artefact (among others) on the carcass of a huge ship, exterminate the enemy cruiser or protect its allies … simple, but still effective. Only downside: we would have liked that the campaign lasts a little longer. In spite of your servant’s obvious skill, it took just under eight hours to cross three quarters of Kharak, get hold of the precious sesame while putting some Sajuuk fanatics to the pie, before pass to the real players. The difficulty inherent in the first two games and his completely cracked and punitive missions are not at the rendezvous either. The disappearance of the management of a crew on a 3D environment is perhaps not unrelated.
Unless it is the much more intuitive integration of the mechanisms of macro management (management of the economy) that triggers this snowball effect much more simply than in the originals. Because yes, the principle of keeping his army from one mission to another is fortunately always present, even if the game gives us the opportunity to start with a preset army (noob) to manage at least the initial situations of the objectives . Still, the title is accessible, not necessarily a bad thing to attract new kids who might have been discouraged by some missions of his elders. Neophytes who find in Deserts of Kharak an excellent foreman both in terms of history and mechanics, to embark on the massive task of linking with Homeworld Remastered Collection. Even with the game perspective difference, Deserts of Kharak portrays with some accuracy the essence of the first game, which is as reassuring as it is tasty.
We will find with pleasure an alternative to the mythical mothership, symbol of Homeworld I and II. The “mother cruiser”, as it will be called, takes exactly the operating principles of its predecessors. Production, harvest, improvements, few surprises on this side therefore, except perhaps the ability to allocate power to attack, defense, repair, or attach artifacts found along the way, which will improve the main aspects … Even the construction of a “fleet”, terrestrial now, takes exactly the same principles as before: we try to have a mix of units as complete as possible (between hunters, electric guns that are the alter-ego of ion frigates etc …), to potentially handle any aggression, while trying to dose some of the most cracked units history to pass without much suffering (cuckoo cruisers artillery).
The very simple geometric codes designating the units (among the 13 types available) remain identical, and their use via the timeless and always as well damn tactical view still effective, despite the passage on a field trip instead of a space three-dimensional. In short, everything to welcome with open arms the pilgrims of space without real head. But suddenly, if we abandon the movement in 3D, is there a new element to compensate? Well yes. The subterfuge of the advantage of positioning on heights is already used in other STRs. Yet the integration of mechanics fits perfectly with the environment of dunes and steppes, offering a real reflection on how to advance his troops, depending on the surroundings. If one is positioned in height, one will gain a bonus of damage on our targets, while giving them a possibility to miss their attacks according to possible obstacles on their line of fire, while the hunters will dive in a big close scrum, worthy of the space battles of the series.
