Privat Computer PC Magazine (October, 1998):
    This is sin.

    Helt Nye, Kraftfulde Våben
    Dit våbensarsenal spænder fra sniper rifler med lasersigte, fjernbetjente detonatorer, over våben så voldsomme at de kan flå din krop i småstykker.

    Udforsk De Hyperinteraktive Verdener
    Gå, løb, svøm og kør gennem seks forskellige verdener, alle i samme imponerende grafiske detalje som Quake II.

    Mærk De Smertefulde Konsekvenser
    Mød de intelligente væsener, undgå dem...eller dræb dem. Men husk, alle de beslutninger du tager - eller ikke tager - vil påvirke fremtiden.

    Hyg Dig I Multiplayer "Sin-Fest"
    Dræb løs som Blade, Elexis eller J.C. (Blade's cybersidekick) i de mest intense deathmatch levels du længe har set, over Internet, LAN/WAN eller modem.

    Når SinTEK's direktør begynder at fylde gaderne med DNA-muterende stof, er det på høje tid at revidere de moralske love. Når den samme sindsyge bio-kemiker planlægger at overtage verdensherredømmet med sin hær af gensplejsede mutanter, er det på tide at omskrive de gyldne regler.

Press Release:

    RITUAL ENTERTAINMENT SEEKS FIENDISH INPUT ON CHARACTERS IN SIN

    Gamers' Feedback Will Be Incorporated Into Game



    Santa Monica, CA, August 15, 1997 -- Gamers can play the devil's advocate by concocting killer attributes for characters in Ritual Entertainment's first-person action shooter Sin, slated for distribution in early 1998 by Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI). Participants can suggest character names as well as provide ideas about each character's first line of attack, physical attributes and death sequence. Ritual will post at least one new character on their web site during the last week of each month through December 1997. Participants can voice their opinions by sending email to [email protected] Ritual Entertainment designers will review the material and incorporate gamers' suggestions into the finished game.

    "We are dedicated to making Sin the game that gamers want to play," said Harry Miller, CEO, Ritual Entertainment. "By soliciting feedback from players, we can design kick-ass characters which are the core of any truly outstanding interactive experience."

    Utilizing id Software's Quake engine, Sin is set in the anarchic future where local governments have hired private security agencies to help them stem the unrelenting tide of graft, crime and drugs. Players explore the chaos of the 21st Century as a leader of an elite strike force hired to rid the city of rampant crime and vice proliferation.

    As they blast their way through vast and complex levels of unholy terror, players discover that the secret source of the crime epidemic is perhaps even closer that they first thought. Crawling with criminals and mutant foes, Sin features six distinct game environments, convincing graphic detail and a rich, engaging storyline.
