Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion Game Review

Updated on March 19, 2013

A review of Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion

SOASER or Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, made by Stardock is a 4X Strategy game that combines the elements of a turn based strategy game and a real-time strategy game. Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion is the latest expansion of the series: Trinity, Entrenchment and Diplomacy. However, this game is packed separately from the other three so, you won’t need the previous versions to play.

Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion was released in July 12, 2012. The game features the same three factions from the previous expansions: The Trade Emergency Coalition or TEC, the Advent and Vasari. But, they also added a sub-faction for each race: the rebels. Each faction is unique and each sub-faction has a set of unique special abilities or research.

There is also a new capital ship for each race and there is a new Titan ship unique for each sub-faction. The titan ship is similar to a capital ship, only larger and more powerful. These massive ships use up 150 supply and 2 capital ship crew.

There are also new victory conditions.

Research victory is where you win by researching a certain set of expensive and long research items.

Occupation victory is when you occupy a planet and defend it for a certain period of time. Occupied planets have another faction occupying them and they are strong but not as strong as pirate bases. You need to wipe out the occupants before you can occupy them.

Flagship victory is when you destroy all other Player’s flagship. You lose when you lose your flagship. The flagship is given a starting ship. It also have unique abilities and a strong hull and powerful shields.

Capital Victory is when you destroy all other capital planets. You lose when yours is destroyed.

Sins of a Solar Empire is a great game if you want a slow paced Real-time Strategy game. The down side of this game is that it takes long to play. I had a game that took 8 hours to finish. This is just like Civilization and the Mage-knight board game. They take long and are good if you want to burn a lot of time.

The graphics is also great and does not require much of your memory and video card so older computers can still play this game without problems. Be careful though, when there are a lot of units in the game, the game may become slow. The processor, in this case, is having a hard time computing AI movement, Ship Movement, Economy, etc. But it’s still good for older Computers.
