PC World writes: "Nowadays, many games claim that they feature epic storylines and immersive gameplay. How about a space odyssey that spans over 10,000 years, featuring one of the most intense and exciting real time strategy campaigns to date? Sins of a Solar Empire had it all: an engaging story, beautiful visuals, user-friendly controls, and addictive gameplay that would have you staying up until your eyes were sore from staring at your computer screen; your hands cramped from issuing orders to your fleet.
And you'd STILL keep playing. An underappreciated entry in one of gaming's longest running genres, Sins of a Solar Empire proved itself as a stellar (no pun intended) experience for gamers everywhere."
