5.0 out of 5 stars Corker, 22 Sep 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Sins of a Solar Empire (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
What an absolutely cracking game! Initially i was put off by the tutorial, so i skipped it and jumped right in, and within half an hour i was hooked. The scope of the game is massive - you can control numerous fleets of hundreds of ships with ease, and engage in multiple vast space battles concurrently in different galaxies. Once you've built your first capital ship, and started to build experience points for it, you'll have great difficulty dragging yourself away from the computer.

Thankfully this isn't just another lazy port from the xbox 360, which unfortunately seems to be the norm these days with pc gaming. This is a pc game through and through - it looks and sounds fantastic, the control mechanics are faultless and the required minimum specs are very reasonable indeed.

I also really appreciate the trust that Ironclad and Stardock have shown in their customer base by not having the game riddled with draconian security measures, and the ability to play the game without the dvd in the drive. Its nice for a change not to be treated as a potential criminal by a game publisher.
