Weapons are limited to a pistol, shotgun, sub-machinegun and explosives in the forms of grenades and explosive canisters. All of the weapons have a great feel to them. They are solid, destructive and very satisfying. They have girth. When firing the...

This review originally posted at MentalGamers - http://www.mentalgamers.com/game_reviews.php?r=18SiN Episodes is a new concept in gaming as far as I'm aware. Basically the plan is to release a number of small "episodes" of a larger game. Each...

Episodic games are widely regarded as the saving grace of the gaming industry. Instead of spending years creating 20-hour-plus full-length games, developers can build five-hour chunks of a game, and release them more frequently and for a lower price...

Well, what can I say? Did I like the sound, the graphics, the gameplay and the story? I frelling loved them! Was I happy with the length of the game? For twenty bucks, yeah, I definitely was. Was I happy at the prospect of shelling out another $160...

Clearly the ‘episodic’ approach is the latest fad in computer gaming. We saw something similar this month with the new Half-Life 2: Episode One game – a short-ish, budget-priced instalment of a well-established franchise. Well, here we...

Electronic Arts This game marks the first of many ?episode? style game releases. Instead of a full sequel to the original Sin game, Ritual partnered with Valve to release multiple shorter episodes. This is the first of those episodes....

I wasn’t much a fan of episodic content before this game. I didn’t think they could include enough to warrant a $20 price tag but SiN Episodes: Emergence has gone a long way towards disproving that assumption. I was also quite pleased with...

"Would have been a 9 but...." Ah, Sin. The land of mutants, drugs, and well-endowed villainesses. In other words, much like any summer music festival, except that you have a gun. For those unfamiliar with the game, Sin was originally released October...

The original SiN (no pun intended) hit PCs nearly a decade ago. Offering cinematic gunplay, high body counts and great graphics courtesy of the original Quake engine, SiN was a fun shooter. However, the game had the unfortunate disadvantage of coming...

I don’t suppose many people remember Sin, and those that do probably remember it as an okay first-person-shooter with nice scripted moments and an attractive female villain with big breasts. Sadly, this wasn’t enough for a game that came out...

For many gamers SiN often would fall into the realm of classic gaming, a once intense shooter for older generations lost in the ages with the introduction of more and more FPS games, Ritual moved on in their own work during this time and for the most...

Efter åtta år bryter amerikanska Ritual tystnaden när man i dagarna lanserat SiN Episodes: Emergence - uppföljaren till 1998 års actionrökare SiN. Då som nu står spelet i skuggan av konkurrenten Valves titlar i Half-Life-serien. FZ har synat Rituals...
