Sins of a Solar Empire

Sins of a Solar Empire

Sins of a Solar Empire combines the depth of traditional turn-based games like Civilization with the action of real-time strategy (RTS) games like Command & Conquer. The result is a rich and highly detailed game that pleases fans of both types of strategy. The game can be a little slow when first starting out, and the network planetary jump paths make it difficult to get a sense of where to establish defensive borders. Although the game gets fully underway once players are able to set up a thriving economy backed by a fleet of ships, those who like to build up fast and get straight into the fight might be put off by Sins' pacing. Even two players on a small map can take hours to finish a single session. Those looking for a break from hitting the End Turn button until something happens should be happy with the new pacing and unique experience Sins of a Solar Empire brings.
