GameCritics: I suck at real-time strategy (RTS). I'm an extremely deliberate player when it comes to most games, so the quick thinking required by RTS and I never get along. Add in the strategy responsibilities of something like Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, and it would seem like this game is tailor-made to repel me. In fact, it very much is tailor-made to repel me.
However, I've played enough games to be able to tell the difference between a bad game and a good game that just doesn't suit my play style, and Rebellion falls into the latter category. While it's absolutely not the kind of thing I would seek out and play myself, it does have quite a bit to appreciate.
