Video Review


The Soban have a different texture pack than their brothers in the other fleets. It’s neat, but as is the case in most strategies, things like this are lost on me. The camera is usually zoomed out too far to get a good look at individual units, and this game especially uses a wireframe radar mode where units are rendered in simple geometric shapes.

Audio Review


Little has changed in the sound department except for new voiceovers for the Soban fleet. Like the base game, the voice acting is has a raw feel but still fits in perfectly with the mystic sci-fi theme.

Final Thoughts

The 'Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak - Soban Fleet' makes for a small but potentially significant DLC pack for players interested in a more defensive fleet configuration or fresh options when playing with friends. This is basically a complimentary DLC addition that players new to the base game might not even take notice of right off as the Soban fleet doesn’t fundamentally change anything. For those who have enjoyed the 'Homeworld' prequel, it’s worth playing at least a few matches with the fleet.
