Sins of a Solar Empire is a real-time space strategy and the first chapter in an epic science fiction saga. The independent Trader Worlds must unite and form the Trader Emergency Coalition to defend themselves against the return of their exiled brethren, "The Advent" and the arrival of the desperate remnants of the ancient Vasari Empire. Explore and conquer nearby planets and distant solar systems by applying brute force, cunning strategy, elegant diplomacy, economic mastery, and researched technology. The gameplay features seamless transition between epic strategy and tactical combat modes.
One of my favourite games I have ever played. Filled to the brim with the most brilliant of details. Massive, ever expanding maps that may take days to finally finish.
On top of that: a giant repository of mods, with plenty more being made. And Ironclad, at the time of this review, has finished Entrenchment and Diplomacy and is almost finished with their newest full expansion: Sins - Rebellion.
So, if you are thinking of picking this up but not sure, DO IT! This game is amazing, and is worth the now meager amount of money that they are charging.
Yes, the game is not one for everyone; and it may be difficult to get into. But once you do, it will be hard to put it away for too long!
A great game with very good graphics and play style.
Only problem that some games can last forever almost. But everything else makes up for that little problem.
It may be hard to get into but once you do you will never want to stop playing for a while,
And plenty of mods around to make the playing even more interesting.
A 10/10 from me it is worth it.
Just a generally awesome game. Out of all of these 4X strategies (and every other type of game), Sins of a Solar Empire really is at the top, including their rebellion expansion.Graphics great, single and multi player amazing and the sheer amount of options available. The mods available have really made it amazing, especially Sins of the Prophets, which is probably the best mod I have ever seen
