I have been incredibly excited for the Remastered release of Homeworld and Homeworld 2, I played HW1 and Cataclysm for uncountable hours and they are amazing games. Gearbox hasn't had the best track record recently but I was willing to put that all aside because I fucking love these games, and my god did they do a bang up job for most of it.
First it looks FANTASTIC my god, the DOF, the high res models, the backgrounds, the shadows aren't perfect but damn good enough overall it is a visual extravaganza and it sounds even better the redone music and sounds are top notch and if it wasn't for some missing sounds and misplaced sounds (Weapon sounds in particular are a little all over the place) it would be a damn near perfect soundscape.
So with all this being so strong whats wrong? They literally released this game with one of the most core aspects of HW1 completely broken, Formations, this is where you tell you strike groups what shape to take at all times, while it doesn't sound that important it is critical to battle because otherwise your fighters just fan out in a really haphazard way. Right now what happens is that when you assign a formation they will do so only to completely break apart the moment they get into battle flying around willy nilly and barely keeping individual ships in their sights long enough to attack. You used to be able to tell your ships to get into a Sphere formation and Guard a capital or support ship and they would literally form a 3D sphere around the ship and try to keep that shape at all cost, now they clump up "near" the ship in a useless ball of bullshit.
There are other bugs but nothing comes close to this it breaks such basic fundamentals of the combat, I really hope this gets patched and I will halt my playthrough of the HW1 campaign until this is addressed...if it is addressed.
Damn it Gearbox I wanna love you for remaking this game but COME ON!
