4.0 out of 5 stars It would be a sin to miss the rebellion!, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Since I started playing Sins, it has gone from strength to strength. When Trinity came out, it offered gamers the opportunities to choose different pathways in terms of combat and diplomacy. Then of course came Rebellion... what a thrill I got to see what we got that was new. I mean... who wouldn't want to command a completely kick-ass titan warship (as a start). I love how they've increased the amount of choice you get, by selecting either loyalist or rebel forces (whereas before, it was just simply the 3 factions). This game is a must for any Sins fans who want to take their experience to a new level. On the Sins website, they've also brought out some DLC which only adds to the spontaneity of the game! Nicely done Kalypso!

I think the only reason why I can't give this game a 5-star rating is due to the fact that once you get so far in your current game, you realise that you've just got to do the same thing again and again before you are victorious... take your heavily armed fleets to one system after the other and take over each planet one at a time... gets a bit tedious if you ask me. I play 'Star Wars Empire at War' alongside this series and I love it simply because it takes more effort to maintain the planets that you've conquered. With Sins, all you need to do is make sure you bump up your planet defences and build star bases in strategic locations to prevent enemy invasions. I just think that perhaps the series might benefit from a little more tactical thinking in relation to maintaining the planets themselves (or am I the only one thinking 'where on Earth do the colony ships get all their guys from?')

Aside from that, a great game to play! Many hours of enjoyment!
