Sins of a Solar Empire Review


Ironclad Games' space strategy game Sins of a Solar Empire was released well over a year ago now, but it's only recently that I got a chance to give this well-received game a shot. I had heard that it did a fantastic job of combining the scale of a...

While Sins of a Solar Empire probably isn't a big deal to those who have already played the hell out of a large-scale, turn-based space strategy game, those of us who never got too far into those games will find the RTS action of Sins to offer...

From a Christian perspective, there are some considerations. First of all, it is war, so while there is no gore, people do die, and planets are bombarded. Nuclear-like missiles are launched at planets. You get the idea. Also, a few minor curse words...

Sins of a Solar Empire - PC review at Thunderbolt Games


If you're in the mood to expand your influence over the universe, then Sins of a Solar Empire is the game for you. New home worlds and unexplored galaxies are just a phase jump and a few mouse clicks away, but that isn't to say universal domination is...

Sins of a Solar Empire review for the PC


Looks good and scales well; Game helps you keep track of everything; Excellent multiplayer; Great music; Balanced, enjoyable combat

Limited single-player appeal; High learning curve; Shallow end-game options; Say goodbye to sleep

Overall, Sins of a Solar Empire is truly an excellent game. Minor flaws and caveats aside, it has been a long time since I've played any game so addicting and moment-to-moment enjoyable that it's actually made me worry about starting it up. PC gamers,...

Navigating space, and the game

Navigating through the extensive yet intuitive menu to start your game is both pleasurable and easy. Everything is well laid out; a lot of thought has been put into presentation. This is something that you will notice in just about every other aspect...

Sins of a Solar Empire (PC)


Ironclad Games, developer of Sins of a Solar Empire, set out to pull off the seemingly impossible task of creating an epic space strategy game in a real-time environment. Most games of this type only come in turn-based flavor, Galactic Civilizations...

This review was based on a retail copy of the game provided by the publisher.

Sins of a Solar Empire


Salvation awaits strategy gamers in an awesome title that mixes low-level spaceship combat and high-level universal conquest.

Elegant mixture of "4X" gameplay and RTS battles; deep strategy; innovative control system; bounty/pirate/diplomacy system

No single-player campaign; multiplayer tech issues; big learning curve; poor hotkey configuration

I Spy a Mystery: Why Repackage Puzzles?


I've enjoyed the various I Spy titles, games that require you to find hidden items in a variety of themed scenes. When I found a copy of I Spy Mystery on sale recently, I picked it up expecting many hours of fun and enjoyment. While I did enjoy playing...

intriguing idea, more variety than other titles because it's not strongly themed

reuses tableaus from previous titles, odd organization, one set of puzzles without replay, awful sound

Starks takes to the stars for his belated review of this niche strategy space game

Great depth. Ability to lose yourself in the game as you manage your fleets, economy and still try to win the game is for me a big selling feature.* Interface is intuitive and ensures that it does not take away from the gameplay itself. Emphasis seems...

Could have diversified the races a little more to give the game more depth.* The nature of the game itself means multiplayer, whilst possible, is highly unlikely as the amount of time required to play a session, and ensuring two people at the least are...

Fantastic game that has some small room for improvement but is overall a very well put together title. Enjoyable, hasn't tried to change from its winning formula and definately is a game I would recommend to people who enjoy empire building titles.
