Sins of a Solar Empire Review

Print More


Sins of a Solar Empire is 2008’s award winning 4xRTS title from Ironclad Games, with multiple game of the year awards in an assortment of categories. I bought it late last semester and started playing it online with a few friends. We were hooked. Sins of a Solar Empire blends traditional turn-based scale and complexity with real-time strategy gameplay. The game wraps all of this in a very presentable package with excellent graphics, sound, and interface design. It’s easy to pick up and keeps everyone entertained for hours at a time. I also pre-ordered the expansion titled Entrenchment, which entered me into the beta. Entrenchment is available now only through Stardock’s Impulse distribution network. Check the video below for an in-depth review.
