Sins of a Solar Empire
Deeply immersive, massive scale, takes the most of the micromanagement out of RTSes.
Dangerously addictive and enjoyable space strategy, Realtime gameplay feels original and fresh, Epic feel with titanic battles, Excellent singleand multiplayer gameplay.
Elegant mixture of "4X" gameplay and RTS battles; deep strategy; innovative control system; bounty/pirate/diplomacy system.
No story mode, AI difficulty very uneven.
Games can take a very long time to resolve, You wont get a lot of sleep.
No single-player campaign; multiplayer tech issues; big learning curve; poor hotkey configuration.
