5.0 out of 5 stars IN SPACE NO ONE CAN HEAR YOU END YOUR TURN... 1 April 2010
By NeuroSplicer TOP 100 REVIEWER
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an EXCELLENT game that takes the galaxy civilization games a clear step further. Open-ended like a new science-fiction world and played as a seat-of-your-pants RTS game, this is a very intelligent hybrid that I greatly enjoyed.

In effect, SINS is a successful blend of the wonderful Galactic Civilizations and Homeworld series, with a sprinkling of Total War for good measure. This is NOT a turn-based civilization game, so expect a much faster pace. What this means is that while it maintains the characteristics of classic turn-based civilization games (exploration, expansion, exploitation and extermination), by relieving from the micromanagement tedium, it allows for an intense RealTime Strategy experience. Now, this probably may not appeal to turn-based purists, but I would advise an open mind: this is a good game.

This concept-blending is new, so expect a slow learning curve - it took me a number of ...false-starts to get the hang of it: after all, it plays like an RTS and (although simplified) it still has enough of turn-based features that need to be taken care of. The interface is simplified and informative at the same time, with info trees sliding out only when needed.

There are three different factions to choose from (financiers, technologists and psitecs) - yet, their differences focus mainly on research tree-branching and ship designs. What I did not like was that the ships of all three factions are effectively the same and their differences are only skin-deep.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant fun but now outdated 1 Jun. 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you are a fan of strategy then look no further! As a huge fan of strategy myself I have played many many real time strategy games but I have to say Sins Of A Solar Empire is my favourite. Despite having no campaign the skirmishes against A.I are really good fun! There are a number of difficulty levels to choose from and frankly I wouldn't worry about getting better than the A.I but even if you do you can always go onto the online multiplayer. The matches can be huge and last for hours and hours (and by that I mean getting close to triple figures ) or you could just have a small game which could last 4-5 hours. There is a lot of customisation into victory requirements and the three races give you different tactics to choose from. I really couldn't recommend this game any more.

However if you are looking to buy it don't get this! instead get the rebellion expansion as that comes with the content from all the other expansions and doesn't require the full game! It adds huge starbases and even larger titan class spaceships with which you can destroy other civilisations! (great fun)

5.0 out of 5 stars A great game 6 Jun. 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This was an original and great game that has now been added to extremely successfully by the two expansions. The first of these adds buildable space stations that can be turn into super forts but can also add to trade routes or have other features added. The second expansion vastly increases the options when interacting with the AI players. The first is a great expansion, the second is an almost must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best space game to date 21 Aug. 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is amazing. I keep going back to it to play another skirmish. The graphics are great. The tech trees are expansive and provide interesting choices - in an average sized game you will have to prioritise technologies that you need. I love the scope of this game - the smallest ships (excluding fighters/bombers) have 50+ crew and the giant capital ships have crew/populations up to 15,000. You can have huge fleets with around 12 capital ships and hundreds of smaller ships. The battles are intense and epic.
Best space RTS I've ever played.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huge replayability 12 Jan. 2013
By Reviewify.co.uk HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me start by disclosing that I'm a massive fan of the Sins games, have been since the very first one.

What you get with Trinity is the original game and all the expansions, all for less than a tenner, a fantastic deal for those wanting to dip into this very popular game.

If, like me, you use to play the likes of K240 on the Amiga then you'll love this, it takes the concept of managing asteroids and fleets in K240 and magnifies it to managing solar systems across entire star systems. The size of the game is really hard to explain, but the developers have done an amazing job of allowing you to set up endless games of different sizes giving you infinite replay-ability.

Be warned there is no story mode, you just need to throw yourself in and pick up all the tricks as you go along.

If you've read about this and think it might be your kind of game I would recommend skipping Trinity if you can afford to do so and jump in with the newer game which does away with the Impulse game management and can be purchased on Steam instead: [...]
You can check out a review of the newer game here: [...]

If however you're looking for something under £10 that will give you weeks, if not months and years of gameplay then I highly recommend Trinity.
