Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion

 

The original “Sins of a Solar Empire” has achieved near-legendary status in the 4X community. It's metascore of 87 is the equal of “Europa Universalis 2” and higher than “Shogun: Total War”. It is the very antithesis of a casual game – you can really...

This is a decent expansion to the best 4X-RTS-in-space out there. A real treat for newcomers to the game, veterans might find the $40 price tag a little steep for an expansion that is more evolutionary than revolutionary.

Rebellion is the best way yet to experience the strategic joys of the Sins of a Solar Empire franchise.

Tremendous scope ; Combines all of the content from the original game and the expansions ; Includes new races, new victory conditions, and tweaks to tech trees ; Added ships like the massive Titans and corvettes that wreak havoc on foes ; Enhanced...

Expensive for a stand-alone expansion ; Still no campaign mode

Extra ship types are some of the best new feature in the game. Massive Titan-class battleships unique to each faction can now be constructed as counters to enemies who might be turtling with starbases, minefields, and gun platforms. Titans are...

There is certainly no shortage of space strategy games out there, but few of them offer the balance between RTS combat and 4X-style expansion and domination like Ironclad Games' Sins of a Solar Empire does. And after a couple of years without any...

So while the price tag is just a bit steep, Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion still does a fine job fixing the technical issues behind the original game while adding plenty of variety and some fun and exciting new ships to build. It all plays out in...

Does this 4X RTS game cover all of its bases? Or do some enemies fly in and destroy everything? 411mania's Marc Morrison finds out inside. (With bonus Warlock - Master of the Arcane review/comparison)

A major escalation for your interstellar war.

Huge-scale space combat; interesting new playstyles and strategies; improved diplomacy and Pirate systems

A little expensive; some fleet movement glitches; AI feels weaker

The 4X space strategy competition of summer 2012 is now officially underway! Next up will be Endless Space, which will be followed by Legends of Pegasus. Do you plan on branching out to these other space strategy games, or will you stick with Rebellion?

An expansion that gives you everything, except what the original was missing.

How much interest do you have in Sins of a Solar Empire? If you, like me, loved it and haven't played it in a while, Rebellion is a good way to get caught up on all the previous expansions in a single package. If you've been meaning to check out the...

When I last looked at Sins of Solar Empire: Rebellion, I may have perhaps spent a bit too much time bemoaning the franchises lost potential. Whilst I stand by all that I said, the same won't be happening here. Having spent time with the final review...

There’s really only one thing that matters in this game: Total Victory.

Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion Review

 

Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion is easily the definitive game of this series.

So what does all this mean? In a way, it's a gutsy move for Ironclad to release an expansion for a four-year-old game, especially when the marketing team for Legends of Pegasus is telling gamers to "forget your Sins… become a Legend." Rebellion leaves...
