What Gamespot Users have to say about SiN

  • User Rating 8.2

    A great FPS plagued by a buggy first release as well as a little game known as 'Half-Life.'

    Rated on August 25, 2004 by DJ_Lae

    Sin was released with relatively little fanfare at approximately the same time as Half-Life. We all know what happened with Half-Life, and we all know that in comparison, Sin didn't sell very well, or...

    Now here might be a waste of time and money.

    SiN. Now here might be a waste of time and money. The graphics are horrible according to the standards of the time (Ritual Entertainment and Activision, 1998). The author spent hours trying to get ...

    Outdated, with convoluted - not interesting, convoluted - levels. Not really worth your time nowadays.

    Rated on September 02, 2006 by CarlsonAJ

    SiN now ships free with SiN: Episodes. The lack of a compass, automap, or any other way to figure which way you are supposed to go, or even have been, is a pain. One that you will experience over, a...

    With it's glitches and bugs set aside, Sin Gold is one of the best Q2 engine shooters and only with it's bugs aside

    Rated on July 24, 2007 by FEPowered390

    Despite on some of the lower reviews, Sin Gold proves to be a decent shooter, with a slightly modified Quake 2 Engine. If you loved Quake 2, you will likely love Sin Gold. If you didn't care for Qu...

    Not a bad game by any means. There are just much better games out there.

    Rated on October 03, 2006 by GSZX

    NOTE: I will be talking about this game as if I bought it the day it released and that it's $50 US. So, I won't say: "Get Quake 4 instead." or, "It's a good deal since you get it free w...

    The Orginal Sin Game.

    Rated on July 29, 2007 by Star_Wars117

    Gameplay- Straight Run and gun kill lots and leave. Not much to it. Lots To kill but only 3 main weapons to kill with. overall not much to do here. Graphics- Good for the year 1998 when it came out...

    Good for the new price, bad for the game.

    Rated on April 10, 2006 by mrhankeydinks

    SiN…the modern review. Well the only reason I bought the original SiN is because I pre-purchased for SiN Episodes: Emergence for $20. With that you get SiN, SiN Multiplayer and Sin Episodes: Emerge...

    Old, but awesome.

    Rated on December 06, 2007 by Gammit10

    I JUST finished watching the final cut-scene from this game. It wasn't too bad, actually. It was released as the same time that Half Life (the original) was, and so SIN 1 got a little lost in its shad...

    SiN:Steam-A must play for new SiN games to make any sense<br /> Though old; the sheer gore & memories make me smile upo

    Rated on May 27, 2006 by wse_jack

    I guess I'm not the only one who feels like they should write up their experiance of SiN, brought to you via wise developers who realise that when you want to drop a game into the middle of your previ...

    One of those games I just keep going back to!

    Rated on March 08, 2008 by zeus_gb

    Sin is a Quake 2 engine game that was released at the same time as Half Life and man that was a bad idea. Half Life did very well but sadly Sin was mostly overlooked. There were a lot of bugs in the...
