Summary: Love the game, amazing environment ripe and begging for a single player campaign. The lack of SP, and the absence of actual up/down travel (a'la Homeworld) is why it's only getting 4 stars from me.
Summary: An excellent 4X type game. You really get the sense of massive ships blasting each other apart. Games take a very long time to play out, but if you enjoy the genre this won't matter. The graphics are decent, I really enjoy the multiple independent guns on the capitol ships.
Summary: fun game to play every once in a while, but the thing that really kills it, is the fact that there is no story mode or single player campaign at all. this is especially important since the game has an opening sequence that seems to hint at an epic story, and then you get to the main menu and find...
Summary: I just picked up a copy of Sins of a Solar Empire and it's GREAT! It's everything I've been missing from Civ V. You can change the scale from either one solar system or an entire GALAXY, and from my understanding it's completely modable! I'm currently looking for Mods.
Summary: This game fills a void in my heart. I've always yearned for a game where you fight an intergalactic (well, in this game it's a solar system, but still) war. You manage your planets, built your fleets, conduct research, and wage war. It's a very fun and unique game.
Summary: Forgive Me father for I have sinned! For the purist real-time strategy gamer, our gaming lives consist of arguing over which RTS's are best, arguing with WoW players wheather it is more Strategic than an actual RTS, and shunning those that spend endless hours shooting each other while we...
Summary: I wavered back and forth for a while before buying this game, but I eventually snapped it up at a Black Friday discount. I was absolutely floored by the smooth graphics. I love to set my camera anchored to a ship and send it through hyperspace with the camera focused parallel to the ship.
Summary: I have extracted untold hours of gameplay from this title, and it really is a great game and a bargain compared to some of the junk you get with console games at $60 a pop (and you play for a week).
