    Thank You Treasure! If there was one game that you would have to import for your N64, Sin & Punishment (S&P) is that game. This is a very fun and unique game that will blow you away! You start out as...

    Sin and Punishment, orignally an exclusive to Japan N64 title, now available for the Virtual Console. So it wasn't originally released in Europe or North America, so...then, is it bad? No, I think it'...

    This may be an N64 game, but with it available on the Wii Virtual Console, it's well worth the points.

    You may first look at this game and say to yourself: "Hmm... It's an N64 game, it's Japanese, it's old... Nah. Can't be bothered." Trust me, this is a big mistake. First Impressions -The first thin...

    After playing this game I'm left asking myself why wasn't this game released in North America or Europe?

    Sin and Punishment (VC) Sin and Punishment's story moves fast and so it's difficult for many people to understand, but S&P is a rail shoote...

    You have to play this game. You just have to. It is the most amazing and best shoot 'em up ever made. It rocks!

    This is a very unique and action-filled game. I'll start out with the story. It makes no sense when you play the game. The only thing that you can get from watching the weird cut scenes is that Japan ...

    WOW! I said when I tried this game

    Rated on January 06, 2007 by bretikur

    This is a total Action-game but it is good. The game is very short but it is difficult all the way through. The game play is very special and it is not something you see very often. I got it in a Jap...

    Sin and Punishment may be marred by some blatant flaws, but they aren't enough to drag down an otherwise excellent game.

    Too short, but fun while it lasts.

    Rated on November 07, 2007 by sieg6529

    Sin & Punishment is one of the 1st rail-type shooters I've ever played. All in all, I liked it. The graphics were good except for the close-ups, a curse that haunts nearly all N64 games. Some o...
