ok, first off, i LOVE space RTS games and im currently interested in Nexus:The Jupiter Incidient and Homeworld 2. Ive played both SP demos for these games.

Nexus's Demo totally blow me away with amazing GFX, espcially on the explosions and when ships move. But i had no idea wtf i was doing or going on because there was no tutorial was so ever. So i sat there pressing every button trying to figure out how to create more units and such. The only thing i could figure is is how to move my ships and how to get them weapons...

HomeWorld 2's Demo was AWSOME! Once i had gone through the tutorial i had a blast, I understood everything and building was a breeze, when squadrons of fighters and other ships battle eachother it looked so cool even without the amazing GFX Nexus had.

So im wondering which of the 2 games would u reccomend? Right now im going for HomeWorld 2, but can Nexus be just as fun once u understand it?

Homeworld 2 is an awsome game zoom in on your fighter squadrons as they get in dogfights. I havent played Nexus but i tried a demo and diddnt like it. I'd go with Homeworld 2.

I loved Homeworld II, I just felt it was lacking just a bit. Didn't seem to be quite enough variety in it to make it truly great, but it is one of the best space games I have played.
