Neither one thing nor the other
on 5 February 2010
I was really excited about buying this game. I've really enjoyed playing real-time strategy and turn-based strategy games in the past. Unfortunately Sins gives you the worst of both worlds. You just poitn and click and send your fleets here and there but unlike in a real-time strategy games there's no need (and not much fun) in zooming in, so there isn't much fast, fun and frenetic action. On the other hand, battles, or even just moving your fleets from one planet to another, can take a long time, and you can't say "next turn" to speed it up, and you don't have the same kind of strategy decisions that you get in a turn based strategy game. In fact I found it less strategic even than a typical real time game like Command and Conquer Generals (and a lot less fun). I didn't try multiplayer but I get the feeling that multiplayer is where this game would shine.
