A wonderful exspansion to the sins series!
The new game types really do speed up the game a bit!
The new factions, titans, corvettes, and other new stuff just make this the most epic Sins of a Solar Empire yet!

10/10 worth it.

Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion is an awesome Space RTS game. I highly recommend playing it.


Amazing space/sci-fi RTS game!

Cannot believe i forgot to rate my favorite space RTS

I had great times playing Sins from the first game to the last expansion and all the mods/conversions i found for it , my most favorite being Maelstrom

I can only hope for a sequel

Can I rate over 10?

A great game, nice difficulty scale providing a variety of challenges to suit, and excellent moddability meaning there's always something new to try out

Takes the sins of a solar empire to a whole new level, which it was at before, but now even better. More game modes to play with making the game more interesting and more captivating.

Beyond the average space RTS. Like way beyond. This game encapsulates sci-fi strategy the way it was meant to be and multiplies it by ten. Simply amazing.

Overall this game is very unique, full of tenacity, and a cold and dark battlefront where your ships at your command can be viewed with a glorious and enhanced camera! It is a game I would recommend. :)

+3 points for Pirates.

So let me talk about what I like about this game. The Solar System management, balance, and race uniqueness, on top of that PIRATES, unique game, Solar System domination, unique heroes (capital ships), the immersion itself, sounds + VO, and AI is very good. It has... ahhhh I don't know word!!! Anyways...

Now onto my dislikes. This game has potential. What I do not get is why you haven't included voice acting in the tutorials??? It is the hook of your game and it is not very well done. This also has no story line, at least I do not know the story line because I think the plot is, "This is what this faction does". I like the factions and how they work, but overall there is no campaign.

User Interface is also a major let down. The options and what a player can do within it feels rushed and unfinished. It has a lot of potential in it, and the ideas are great, but the implementation of it is only average.

Gameplay... uggh, it's good, but... it needs work. It feels stiff in some areas. It is really hard to get a good economy for one. Each planet limits your build queue and is expensive. Research feels like a waste of time, get units, wait and wait and wait, produce! Big maps need work, if you send a squadron of ships over to a next planet, you might as well get up for coffee, no ship return...

I could talk and talk about the game in depth, but MOD DB only allows 2,000 characters on a review. This game would be for me, but if I was the creator, I know how to make it much, much better.

Recommend! Me game? Nah, others, yes.
