I bought this game when it first came out, but sadly was unable to run it. I recently decided to rebuild all the pc's in the house, and the first thing in my mind is "i want it to be able to play Sins, damnit!".
Three days into playing the game, and i can't put it down. Admittedly, it seems that online games are slim to none when i'm able to actually get on (and due to me having a low total fight, win, loss count numbering in the single digits, a lot of people would rather not have me), but even playing against the AI is fun. I've just completed my first triple-solar system map, and boy was it fun (although, pesky because Stars are so large and some ships don't move fast enough...enemy forces can Phase Jump in, and then jump to another planet while my huge fleet at the Star "chokepoint" is still moving to chase them down..lol).
I wish i could decide on an early Vassari started tech though. All the technical trees are so awesome, i just dump random points into the good stuff (mostly economy and warfare), but im usually out of funds for most of the game until the end.
All in all, this game rocks. Going to link this page to a friend since he doesn't trust that the game is so easy to learn and play.
