As a bundle, Trinity makes a wonderful 4X experience. While many fans will already have the original Sins and/or Entrenchment, for those a little late to the game this offers the perfect entry point. Fans of the series can get fully up to speed by picking up Diplomacy on its own, brining their Sins/Entrenchment title up to date. Either way, the complete Sins of a Solar Empire package continues to be one of the most engrossing 4X sci-fi titles available.
The best way to enjoy this game is still in a nice, comfortable chair with the lights turned low, someplace that will allow you to disconnect from the world for a bit. Set yourself up with at least a few hours to take the game in fully the first time you play. You're not going to just pop this one in and play for fifteen minutes, so make the time. It is nice that you can pause multiplayer games and save them for later. Once you're an experienced commander, taking the game in smaller chunks will be fine. Trinity is a must pick up if you enjoyed the game even just a little. Getting all of the games in one compilation, plus the combined effort of years of work into one experience, is a great bonus. What more can you ask for?
Trinity is that it’s a black hole of your free time. You’re going to find yourself zoning into the game and when you finally snap out of it hours will have flown passed. Trinity is a great value pack for any PC gamer who hasn’t jumped on board, at only 39.99. It’s a title we should be proud of, one we should all be buying.
In conclusion, Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity is definitely value for money that gives three games with great replay value. Apart from single-player, the game does feature a strong multiplayer aspect and nothing is more than fun than to battle against humans as they are considerably more unpredictable than the AI. Just be warned, have plenty of time on hand to play this addictive 4X strategy.
Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity is a great game that no strategy fan should be without. Plus this is a real bargain getting the game and both expansion packs for a fraction of the cost.
All in all, the game feels like a very well rounded and balanced RTS that can not only hang with the big boys but also stand out as something unique unto itself. If you can look past its faults (i.e. lack of a campaign mode, little playstyle diversity between races) you will have absolutely no problem enjoying this game. SoaSE is a beacon of hope in what was a genre slowly growing stale from overuse of the same mechanics and concepts.
Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity is a strange game to recommend, there's no real story or campaign mode, simply a large number of scenarios and solar maps to play with. The mechanics are deep and the learning curve equally steep. But the appeal is quite niche, as this game plays like it's only for fans of science fiction, space-based settings and all things strategy.
