    Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion

    As a veteran strategy gamer, but a newbie to this franchise, I thoroughly enjoy this game. It is a must have for anyone who is even somewhat interested in the 4X genre. Its massive scale is well executed and the HUD(whi... Read Full Review

    Amazing game unfortunately not much new material.

    This is an amazing series, I have played it since the release of the original Sins of a Solar Empire. I have all the expansions for the original and unfortunately this is more of a repack than a completely new game. Th... Read Full Review

    This game is right up there with AOE franchise, meaning, a game I will play until I die.

    Rebellion is a polished version of the original SOASE and xpacs b4 it, with a few extra additons. This game doesn't need a sp campaign, but if it had one, I'm sure the score would be a 9 from alot of people. Me, I can't ... Read Full Review

    SOASE > HW....by a long shot.

    the only candle HW can hold to SOASE is its deep storyline, plot, and atmosphere surrounding the games SP campaign...which is the only lacking feature in SOASE. otherwise....SOASE absolutely obliterates HW in every way i... Read Full Review

    Great Standalone for first time SOASE players, Xpac for SOASE vets

    I've already reviewed the original SOASE here: http://www.gamespot.com/sins-of-a-solar-empire/user-reviews/547266/ Rebellion is basically more of the same with a few updated tweaks on the engine, new sub factions wit... Read Full Review

    a standalone expansion pack that are priced accordingly for new gamers, not so for existing fanbase.

    SOASE:R feels like 4rd expansion pack but is repackaged as new game at $40. So what does it add? - 2 subfaction for each faction (3) with a total of 6 faction. Each subfaction has a slightly different sets of tech trees... Read Full Review
