The 3D action game will eat itself, but while it's still alive this is a decent example of the genre and kicks some life back into the largely underrated SiN (PCZ #70, 91%). The new weapons and vehicles are neat, and the levels are varied, requiring a combination of stealth, cunning and good old-fashioned firepower. The real-world locations are obviously a good thing, and the game manages to draw you in as the madness unravels. At the end of the day, if you liked SiN, you'll like this. As Blade says: 'I'm gonna make you my bitch.' Which is nice.

Kuten tapana on, Sinin lisälevyn suunnittelu on annettu tekijäporukka Ritualin ulkopuoliselle tiimille, tällä kertaa sellaiselle tuntemattomuudelle kuin 2015. Ja hyvä näin, sillä 2015 on suoriutunut tehtävästään huomattavasti Ritualia paremmin. Paitsi, että Wages of Sinin kenttädesign on, jos ei nyt erinomaista, niin ainakin suurimman osan aikaa erittäin hyvää, myös sen juoni säilyttää hyvin kiinnostuksensa kun sitä ei ole keinotekoisesti pitkitty loputtomiin.

Als Sin bij jou in de smaak viel, dan raad ik je zeker aan om Wages of Sin niet zomaar aan je voorbij te laten gaan. Als je toegang hebt tot een lokaal netwerk of het Internet, dan kan de lol helemaal niet meer op.

Det største problem med Wages of SiN og SiN er, at det led under at Half-Life udkom på nogenlunde samme tid. Det er ihvertfald ikke lykkedes mig at finde en Dansk server at spille over nettet på, og det er lidt træls. Som singleplayer oplevelse er Wages akkurat lige så sej som det originale SiN var. Fede baner, en sej historie og masser af fjender som bare venter på at få en kugle i panden. Har du købt SiN så er det nok værd at investere i Wages of Sin, da det er alle pengene værd.

Jugabilidad: Nada de nuevo. En un minuto te haces con los controles si has jugado a algún otro juego de acción 3D. Seguramente la mejor combinación es usar el ratón y el teclado, porque los enemigos pueden salir de cualquier sitio. La adicción es elevada, ya que el juego se centra en lo que consiguió hacer mejor Sin, la acción pura y dura, ir matando a diestro y siniestro. Los otros obstáculos son sencillos y no requieren demasiada atención. Además, la opción multijugador es una de las mejores, sino la mejor, de todos los juegos de acción 3D.

Bottom Line: A worthy addition to Sin, featuring more than just new levels and enemies. The AI tweak alone is quite noticeable. Multiplayer fans should appreciate all the effort that was taken to increase their enjoyment, something often left out of level packs.

En god, voldsom og væmmeligt underholdende udgivelse til det dejlige spil SiN, som nok skal holde dig hjemme i mange timer.

Despite the sound problem and the other minor issues, however, Wages of Sin is a very impressive first-person shooter. If you held onto your copy of Sin and resisted the urge to return it before the patch came out, you should definitely give this mission pack a try. It's not a groundbreaking game experience, but it is a fast-paced, action-packed first-person romp that hearkens back to the classics of the genre.

But I end the review for other SiN players: for the guy who bought this game cause it looked cool and was disappointed but still played through most of it, this add-on is still worth your time. While many of the "improvements" should have been in the original game, you will still find something new.

One thing that can be said about Wages of Sin is that it is perhaps much closer to the original intended release of Sin than Sin ever was. It is polished, virtually bug free, sparkling of genius, and, at its core, supplies some satisfying hard core projectile flying action. As an add-on, Wages of Sin is great. Unfortunately, was Sin ever that good to begin with? I found it to get stale quickly and almost tediously repetitive as time went on, lacking both the sharpness and polish of games like Half-Life, which took the Quake 2 engine to new untold highs. Wages of Sin is still good, but it expands on that flawed base, like a rose growing from soil that was not blessed with Miracle Grow.

This is a good addon, as addons go. Unfortunately SiN wasn't my favorite game, so this addon didn't do terribly much for me. There's a lot of new stuff, and it's all pretty cool, but I can't help thinking that this addon was designed to help SiN catch up to Half Life, and it hasn't done it. If you really liked SiN, definitely get this. If you were indifferent to SiN, this might still satisfy you. If you didn't really enjoy SiN, I doubt this addon will change your opinion, even though it is good....for an addon.

This is a better add-on than the score shows. The list of positive features, including a good multiplayer component, added style and humor, and fun new weapons should have garnered Wages of SiN four stars. However, the lingering bugs and poor foundation of its progenitor prevent it from obtaining anything but a slightly above-average rating. I’d like to see the folks at 2015 do their own title; they definitely show promise.

WAGES OF SIN is a worthy addition to the original SIN, adding new goodies while rectifying some of the annoying flaws of that predecessor. It’s definitely worth checking out if you’re an original SIN-ner.

This is a pretty good add-on to a mediocre game. It does everything an add-on should do and most importantly actually improves upon the original. If you loved Sin, be prepared to sin again with this pack. If Sin left you cold, avoid it. Take two 'Hail Mary's' and call me in the morning.

Ändå går det inte att komma ifrån känslan av att Wages of Sin, likt nästan alla andra tilläggspaket, mest är gjort på rutin. De flesta av de nya fienderna är ganska slarvigt och fantasilöst gjorda, banorna är alltför lika de som finns i originalspelet och de nya vapnen tillför inte särskilt mycket. Gillade du Sin är Wages of Sin väl värt ett köp, men förvänta dig inte några revolutionerande nyheter.
