Finns det då inget som är negativt med Sin? Egentligen inte. Det enda som retade mig var de extremt långa laddningstiderna mellan banorna, men detta har förhoppningsvis Ritual åtgärdat med en uppdatering när du läser detta.

Blade rocks! Met zijn alles-kan-kapot-karakter, afwisselende lokaties, bloederige invulling, gory mutanten en het goddelijk lichaam van Elexis als aandachttrekker kan Sin de concurrentie met de beste shooters zeker aan.

Power Play
„SiN“ rules! Auch wenn sich Ritual Entertainments Ego-Shooter im Single-Player-Modus „Half-Life“ geschlagen geben muß, ist dieser knallharte Action Titel dennoch ein grandioses Erlebnis. Von der Atmosphäre her erinnert „SiN“ am ehesten an Duke Nukem — und das nicht nur wegen der Kommentare, die Blade manchmal zum besten gibt. Das stark missionsorientierte Gamplay, die Storyline sowie die zahlreichen Interaktionsmöglichkeiten, inklusive dem Benutzen von Vehikeln, garantieren ein höchst abwechslungsreiches Ballervergnügen. An einer bestimmten Stelle im Spiel muß man sich sogar entscheiden, welchen Schauplatz man als nächstes aufsuchen will. Dadurch bestimmt Ihr, welche Level Ihr im weiteren Spielverlauf zu Gesicht bekommt. Dies fördert natürlich die Motivation, „SiN“ ein weiteres Mal durchzuspielen, um die anderen Regionen abzuklappern. Und Elexis in Action bewundern zu können — ganz gleich ob im Solo-Spiel oder bei einem Multiplayer-Gefecht— ist letztendlich auch nicht zu verachten.

But if you can shamelessly overlook such unpleasantness. SiN is ultimately a triumphant game. The plot is genuinely absorbing and the action is largley incessant. Numerous cunning touches are added, such as utilising several parts of the scenery to make things easier. An array of vehicles are also at your disposal, and indeed one level has you permanently astride a buggy while wielding your weapon. There's always something going on, and the ever twisting plot constanly encourages you to make further progress. And, as previously mentioned, you do get to shoot people in the head.

SiN er en blanding af alle de elementer der gør et shooter godt, det er ikke Duke Nukem, det er heller ikke hverken Quake eller Unreal, men et herligt mix af det hele og mere til.

Still, Sin is a very solid game. If you are a first-person shooter fan, Sin won't disappoint. It's got a great single player game with an intriguing storyline, good online support and lots of wit and style.

У Sin прекрасное будущее — это ясно. Через несколько месяцев выйдет набор дополнительных миссий для игры, а потом и вторая часть. Команде, которая раньше сделалa только один mission pack для первого Quake, удалось создать игру, которая будет на равных бороться с остальными 3d-shooter’ами этого года. Единственным настоящим конкурентом Sin’а является только Half-Life. Остальные игры сезона навряд ли смогут тягаться с этой сладкой парочкой.

Sin är när allt kommer omkring ett utmärkt spel som trots bristerna är värt sitt pris. Half-Life och Shogo må vara bättre, men detta är också en mer än godkänd spelupplevelse, och, det ena behöver ju inte utesluta det andra, eller hur?

Game Over Online
I had a blast playing this game. The enemy AI kept me interested as did the story line. I liked a lot of the new gameplay features and was happy to see that someone was finally expanding the FPS genre. The storyline is so involved and the AI so challenging that I feel I will not get tired of this game for some time to come. Multiplayer was also as much fun as Quake 2, if not more.

Innerhalb weniger Levels schleiche ich mich versteckt in Labors, kämpfe mich im nächsten durch Raketensilos, stehe urplötzlich in völliger Dunkelheit und rette dann die Menschheit vor einer geklauten Atombombe: So muß ein modernes 3D-Actionspiel aussehen. Die Story tut ein übriges, mich auf der Jagd nach Elexis zu motivieren. Zwar ist das realistisch-düstere Szenario sicher nicht jedermanns Sache, ich persönlich bin aber ganz froh, mal nicht durch Alien-Welten zu stolpern. Daß Sin nicht die Klasse eines Jedi Knight oder Half-Life erreicht, liegt neben der Präsentation an unnötigen Hängern. Außer manchmal arg mittelprächtigen Levelgrafiken ist das vor allem die deftige Kampfkraft einiger Zwischengegner, die nur echte Profis bei der ersten Begegnung erledigen. Auch die Figuren hätten besser dargestellt sein können, der Standard-Mutant wirkt nicht gerade prickelnd.

Zonder bugs is Sin ongetwijfeld een echte topper: de levels zijn werkelijk schitterend en ook de AI van je tegenstanders is geweldig. Er zit veel meer verhaal in dan in Quake en er zijn zelfs verschillende verhaallijnen. Spijtig genoeg heeft het Ritual team net voor de eindstreep een aantal serieuze steken laten vallen.

Sin est un must. Si le mode solo et l'intelligence des monstres n'atteint pas la perfection d'Half-Life, il reste superbe et le mode multijoueurs est parmi les plus fun qu'on ait vu jusqu'à maintenant. Excellent jeu!

Overall this is an awesome game with killer multi-player action. With the integration of a training facility, I will be sure to know how to use the weapons and sharpen my shooting skills. Plus the 3DFX graphics always make a game a lot better. If you are into 3D shooters then you must get this game.

For all its attempted cool, Sin manages to be as cool as your dad talking in your lingo. Lame. (...) It's a shame the AI and the technical issues will keep it just this side of the Killer Game award.

But all this seems practically pointless in light of Sin's bugs. Sure, multiplayer Sin works fine out of the box, but single-player loading times are unacceptable to the point where you'll have plenty of time to wonder if it's worth the trouble. Sin isn't easy, and dying in it starts to feel like a fate worse than death, what with two-minute load times as a consequence of every fatal mistake. And the problems don't stop there.

IGN
In the end, Sin is a solid action game that boasts some really cool features. The problem is, for everything that's great about the game, there seems to be an equal and opposite problem with it. If you're into action games, and you've got the means to pick up several, you'll definitely want to make this one part of your collection. If, however, you've only got one Christmas wish left, make it for Half-Life, it's a world better.

PC Player (Germany)
Die Gegner sind mäßig intelligent, bescheiden animiert, eintönig und von einer Originalität, die einem durchschnittlichen Autoaufkleber in nichts nachsteht. Die Hintergrundgeschichte leidet an einem Logikdefizit, sorgt aber trotz allem für milde Motivationsschübe. Auch wenn längst bekannte Sachverhalte als unvorstellbar mysteriöse Mysterien in den späteren Handlungsverlauf wiederaufgenommen werden.

Sin is a good tongue in cheek, futuristic, sexy, shoot-em-up. But serious programming bugs and stiff competition keep it from greatness.

Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
I loved SiN, and I hated it. When this product is patched I’ll start playing again, but as I stated before, in its current state I cannot bring myself to play it anymore. SiN turns out to be nothing more than a Mike Tyson prize fight — while the fight itself may have qualities, the whole experience is just an entourage of poorly implemented game plans, character flaws and superficial nonsense, leaving you feeling ripped off, and cheapening the entire industry at the same time. If the action weren’t uninterrupted by bugs and the flow of the game not hampered by long load times SiN would have been so much more fun to play, and would have garnered a much higher rating. As it is, the game is still fun, but extremely frustrating at the same time.

Three's all around. In almost all regards, Sin is above average. It's not exceptional in any way, but the Ritual boys always have a few surprises up their sleeves to keep this title away from mediocrity. Randomly spawning enemies and unavoidable turrets took away from the single player experience for me, but cool boss design was a plus. Multiplayer suffered a few problems that unfortunately made the game less exciting for me, but it's got its high points too, mainly in the creativity of the levels.

Sin is a game that at times shows signs of greatness, but ultimately falls victim to its countless bugs.

Computer Gaming World (CGW)
SIN isn’t a revolutionary jump in 3D shooters, but it does add increased interactivity, more thoughtful mission and level design, and a storyline that integrates nicely with the missions. SIN really is two games: Without the patch, long load times and other bugs make it only worth your time if you’re a hard-core shooter fan, with the patch, it’s a lot more fun—if not perfect—but some problems persisting despite the patch. If you can download the 18MB patch and aren’t expecting a giant leap in storytelling or gameplay, give SIN a try.
