10. Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion

If you’re like me, the first thing you’ll do is admire the title. Say it with me; Sins of a Solar Empire.

How could a game with such a cool title let you down? Luckily for you, it won’t. Instead of being let down, you’ll be very much up…in space! There you will learn of three factions who are engaged in a feud spanning solar systems.

Titans are not to be trifled with.

Rebellion is a 4x space strategy that goes heavy on the lore. 4x, you ask? It stands for exploration, expansion, exploitation, and extermination.

Exploration is no gimmick; you’re free to venture to the furthest star systems in search of resources. Fleet expansion is a must if you plan to successfully engage other warring factions. Exploitation is realized when you dissolve alliances, by say, hiring pirates to carry out a backstabbing mission. Extermination speaks for itself; destroy until your enemy is nothing but ashes. Aside from all this 4x goodness, Rebellion is loaded with plenty of other features for you to enjoy.  

One of the most noteworthy of these are the six titans that can be brought into battle. Each has their own devastating skillset that will paint a sinister smile on your face. Another cool feature is that you can zoom in on various battle perspectives. What this means is you’re able to catch a glimpse of the battle from a diplomat’s perspective and then beam onto the frontlines and witness the battle from the eyes of a commander.

Feature rich and story driven, Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion is imbued with that magical feeling that only polished RTS games emit. If RTS games are your thing, don’t hesitate to check this one out. If space interests you, even more reason to buy and install. And don’t do it alone; Ironclad Online makes it possible to team up with ten of your friends.
