    I loved the original Homeworld game, Found the second one good also but it was not the same. I also liked ORB-off world resource base, It was'nt as good a homeworld but it was still a great game. Are there any other games out their like this to try?

    If you want to get into a space based mmorpg, look into eve online - http://www.eve-online.com

    This will keep you entertained for a long while if you put the time and effort into it.

    Do you mean "homeworld 2 " or homeworld cataclysm"? Homeworld 2 is a worthy successor to the original, but gameplay is a bit tedious in comparison. Got some nice features though and looks prettier. Cataclysm was/is a but cheesy as the vocals are quite bad, but plays in a similar manner to the original.

    Nexus: The Jupiter Incident.

    Somewhat similar, although its squadron command rather than fleet command.

    Nexus is about the closest I've seen. Quality game, although not quite at Cataclysm's level (cataclysm was by far the best of the homeworlds. Siege cannon was the most amazing thing I've ever seen in a game).
