    This has to be the worst FPS I have put my hands on

    After seeing so many positive user reviews here I had to shed my light since my review will be read by many people and generations ahead.I came here because the Machinima guys were randomly playing this game recently and... Read Full Review

    Good graphics, but bad gameplay and story

    Sin Episodes looks like a Half Life 2 mod graphically, but with all interesting elements of the gameplay removed. I guess this would be the way to describe this game. Somehow I cannot but compare it to Half Life 2. The S... Read Full Review

    Just OK. Needs a little work

    This games is just plain fun nothing else. This is a middle level shooter with a bad story that tou will soon forget once you enter into the game three minutes later. The gameplay is a little boring considering that I... Read Full Review

    It was a promising start...

    When I got this game, I was pleasantly surprised by it. The storyline drops you into the action with an interesting intro movie, in fact, this game does a decent job throughout of making the whole game feel like an inte... Read Full Review

    Boring gameplay, boring guns (only 3!) with boring secondary fire. The AI redeems it some.

    One of the worst games for sale using the Source engine. Boring gameplay and run-of-the-mill guns (pistol, shotgun, smg...that's it...seriously?) with stupid secondary fire modes that make no sense and are not explained.... Read Full Review

    It's like half life...with boobs!

    ok so its not totally half life 2, but it basically takes a lot out of half life's book of cliches and ideas involving the genetics and love boat syndrome. You play as Blade, a special forces soldier of tomorrow cha... Read Full Review

    A short sharp burst of tasty blood soaked mayhem...

    I have already seen a few reviews of Emergence and it does seem to me that some people seem to be missing the point. Lack of variety of enemies? Only 3 weapons available? Indeed, but have they forgotten that this is an... Read Full Review

    Emergence is an above average shooter that keeps a consistently solid feel throughout its five or so hour romp.

    Emergence is a faithful (yet disappointing) sequel/episode of the overlooked 1998 shooter SiN. It follows the same protagonist of SiN, Blade, on his quest to stop the insane geneticist Elexis Sinclaire from changing he w... Read Full Review

    Great action and lots of eye candy ...

    I just finished playing SIN Episodes : emergence. My situation is I bought the game for 5$ Canadian at Zellers (wal-mart-ish store) in a bargain section. For what I paid, it was a good investment. I found the weapo... Read Full Review

    SiN: Emergence - An old school FPS

    SIn: Emergence is just based on all that HL2 was. You feel it through all of the game but the game is not that fascinating as HL2 was. It's a good game yet but only if you're looking for a simple shooter in which all you... Read Full Review
