AWESOME GAME
 
After passing through a bookshop the other day I saw sin sitting on the shelf for $17 NZD(about $8 US). I immmediately snatched it from its shelftop position and bought it.

I have played many first person shooters (they are my favourite genre). I have played
Half-Life, Half-Life OF,Tribes,Project IGI, Kingpin,Soldier of fortune, doom, quake 1,2 &3, unreal and UT, jedi knight 1 & 2, NFK 1 & 2, rainbow 6, swat 3, perfect dark, Turok 1,2 & 3,hexen,delta force 1 2 & 3 and many many more. I have to say of ALL these FPS's
SiN has probrobly impressed me the most.

First off- The game has nice visuals and the models are well animated. One thing that absolutely blew me away was the Model damage and the collision detection. The wounds on the enemies look wickedly cool and I was impressed with the multitude of death animations.

The sound of the game was a mixed bag. Some of the guns seem to have a similarity to faulty shaving devices and have no PUNCH whatsoever. The music was weird. Some of it sounded more like mild backround noises than music while some of the metal tunes were quite catchy. The voice acting of the game was acceptable, especially that of the bums and hostages who managed to crack me up with phrases such as WOOHOO IM SAVED and LEAVE ME ALONE.

Finally the gameplay of the game was superb,
Because of the freedom of the game and the lack of MISSION FAILURES, even though they are still possible, the game had a very doomy feel. But due to the realistic level design and the mission change system it also felt like Half- LIfe. Finally to add to the sack is a variety of mission objectives which make the game more interesting still. To top it Off theres a fully interactive environment with walls plastered with adult material to even further satisfy the player.

Overall you have a game not to be missed, for it is a SiN if you havnt played this game. I could easily say it is the BEST first person shooter I have ever played.

Hehehehehe SiN is too cool. Its like all the best first person shooters put together. I mean it has elements from Duke Nukem, Half- Life and even elements from more strategy based FPS's such as SWAT III. I love this game. If I had known this game had existed before getting all these new and technologically advanced games such as KINGPIN and SOLDIER OF FORTUNE I wouldnt have even bothered with them.

I must say though, SiN seems to have very strong similarities to Half- Life and Quake 2. Not only because it runs on the same engine but because of the Model design(similar to Q2), and the overall plot of the game (Starts off fighting humans then as the plot thickens aliens come onto the scene, very similar to Half- Life).

Anyways thats enough from me.

SiN is a wonderful game, too bad that soo many judge it by the retail version. When it is patched it is soooo much better. I'm still impressed with SiN, as a matter of fact, it is THE game I want a sequel to. And Ritual have said that they might make it too...maybe not this year...or next. But then again...there are always wondeful world of licensing products/games.

Sins not completly dead yet. Sin gold just came out and now a lot of mac players are getting online and saying this is one of the best fps's around. With the mac communtiy slowly building up were all hoping for ritual to anounce those 2 sweet words. "SIN TWO". Im glad some people are realizing sin was serious competition for HL after being patched. And after WOS it completly blew HL away. The thing that impressed me a lot was the advanced graphics, weapon models wich looked kick ass, and the mind blowing mp. Man if those HL morons realized what there missing, there would be a gigantic Sin community.

Sin is a wonderful game. HL is a wonderful game too, since I am working for swedens biggest HL site. There is no idea in fighting...they are both excellent games. I dont like one of them more than the other...they are the two best shooters in "modern day" (Doom and Doom2 ain't very modern but still bulldozes these two).

Just my opinion as a gamer, I think that there is no idea in fighting over which game or platform (PC, Xbox, PS2 etc etc) is the best one. I play that I think is funny/good/great/entertaining , for it don't matter what game or platform it is, as long it is fun...I have no problem with it. But that's just me.
