  • Summary: Its not the greatest game I've experienced but still helped kill some time at work when needed. I'm somewhat satisfied.

Interesting for two days...

  • Summary: It start out as a pretty interesting game (like all games.) It introduces an interesting play mechanics by actually real time travel between planets and the ability to place what you build in orbit the way you want to. However, the intro storyline practically screams continuation with a campaign mode or something, but i haven't found it if there is one.

Great but not as good as C&C

  • Summary: I really wanted to like this game. I love real time strategy's, like command and conquer. But, wanting to love a game is not the same as actually loving the game. This game was very creative and original, but I found it very hard and tedious. I'm a RTS armchair general, but this game was a whole lot of micro-managing. It was not very fun, and the learning curve was very steep. Also there is no story mode, just a skirmish/scenario mode.

Great effort, but lacks a story

  • Summary: I really liked a lot of the game play and how they re-worked the genre concept in the effort to change your traditional RTS. I do however, greatly dislike the lack of any campaign or story development. There is only the cursory glimpse at the reason why these three groups are fighting, but a little lip service is all the back story is given.

OK

  • Summary: I'm a big technology fan, so this game was a little disappointing. I would much rather go back and play Master of Orion II or Alpha Centauari. The dynamics of the game are better, but I enjoy a different type of play.

On second thought -- not great.

JC Greffrath, Amazon

  • Summary: The good stuff: The graphics are appropriately vast; the scope of gameplay is enormous, without becoming unwieldy; and real-time space strategy is something I've never seen before but turns out to be a cool idea. Now for the bad stuff: After getting a good grip on the game, and you get ready to roll up your sleeves and REALLY start enjoying it, you suddenly realise that there is nothing left to enjoy.

fun, but could have been better

  • Summary: first off, part of the reason for my rating is because i cannot play this game online against anyone..if you have highspeed internet and can do so it probably adds alot more fun to it.. the game is still very fun playing against the computer though..the scale of the game universe is awsome! u pick one of the bigger maps to play on and youll have months of good gameplay. and the graphics are great too!

Unique, beautiful, and flawed. Wait for the demo.

  • Summary: First, this game isn't exactly what you may have heard. Don't expect a real time version of Gal Civ 2, or a sort of Europa Universalis in space, this is an RTS game first. Game play consists of collecting resources, building ships, and hurling big piles of them at big piles of enemy ships. It has some characteristics of TBS space games, like warp lanes, planet hopping, and a broadly slower pace.

Gave in to the hype. Now scratching my head!!!

  • Summary: I agree with some of the reviewers here that are scratching their heads about this game. I gave the game 2 stars for fun factor and 3 overall as a reward for no copy protection. I played it for a full weekend and just didn't get what the gushing reviews were about. There is no real strategy to Sins except with dealing with a unit cap. It just reminds me of Warcraft 2 in space.
