Про гру

You are John Blade, commander of HardCorps, an elite security force dedicated to protecting the people of Freeport City. Four years have passed since your first battle with Elexis Sinclaire, a beautiful, brilliant, and ruthless scientist who is out to remake humanity according to her own twisted vision. The law has failed to bring Elexis and her multi-billion dollar empire, SiNTEK, to justice, so Blade is determined to take matters into his own hands. Joining Blade on his mission are JC - a hacker with a secret to keep - and Jessica Cannon, a fiery rookie who can find her way into any secure facility.

Enter the living, breathing world of Freeport City, a futuristic collision of New York, San Francisco and Tokyo. As Freeport continues to suffer from mutant attacks, you must now bring down Sinclaire before she can set her deadly plan in motion and alter the shape of humanity forever.

SiN Episodes™: Emergence launches the new era of episodic gaming. A first person shooter powered by Valve's award-winning Source™ technology, SiN Episodes offers unprecedented interactivity, an engrossing story, and a revolutionary dynamic difficulty system that provides a custom experience based on your skill level and play style.

  • Intense Combat: Face off against ruthless enemies, like jetpack soldiers and mutants that evolve as you fight them. Witness enemies that adapt to your actions and truly work as a team, as they cover each other and help fallen comrades to get back on their feet.
    Outsmart your opponents by using your surroundings to your advantage as you set up traps using lethal elements of the environment. Location-based damage rewards accuracy while melee combat moves enable you to get up-close and personal.
  • Unprecedented Interactivity: Blast your way through highly interactive environments powered by an enhanced version of the Source engine. Characters dynamically react to what you're looking at and the environment. Target and shoot off specific vehicle parts and literally blow cars to pieces. Experience the next level of vehicle combat with a flexible positioning system enabling you to move around the interior with an unprecedented degree of freedom, allowing you to pick the ideal position to attack that enemy position up ahead.
  • Personal Challenge System™: Driven by one of the most elaborate statistics systems ever created, SiN Episodes will constantly adapt to your playing style and offers a challenge that is custom-tailored to your skill level.
  • Episodic Delivery: Buy as little or as much of the game as you want, with each installment offering 3 - 6 hours of action-packed gameplay. But tread lightly, as the choices you make may influence future episodes in unforeseen ways.
  • Source Powered: Utilizing the same engine that powered Half-life® 2, Emergence gives you stunningly gorgeous graphics and intense physics-based gameplay.

Just imagine if SiN had taken Half Life's place. Doesn't really bear thinking about. Still - this was the beginning of a great (albeit kinda-sexist) game that was unfortunately cut short. Damn casual games.

I do not understand why the store page disappeared for this title. I wonder if anybody can see / read my review of this game.

SIN was an interesting FPS at the end of the '90s. It had a lot of scripted events and some really good action sequences. The game was also very difficult (or at least this is how I remember). I guess a lot of people played Half Life instead so perhaps not many gamers remember this title.

Emergence meant to be a sequel but with the new Source engine developed by Valve. The creators wanted to release follow-up episodes but it seems Emergency was not successful enough for this to happen. It is a pity as the game is quite good. It can be completed in a mere 3-4 hours due to its shortness, though.

I played its demo years ago so when it was offered with a discount bundled with the original game (released in 1998) I instantly grabbed it.

PS: It seems the store page is up and running so there's no issue with this.

That this series never made it past the first episode is one of the greatest losses in the history of gaming.

It is awesome.

I know the Half-Life series gets a lot of credit - as well it should. But the Half-Life series has some serious gameplay flaws - like being forced to complete platforming puzzles without being able to see your own feet, or constant reliance on those annoying and frustrating sandlions, and so on.

This is a Source engine game, and it plays very much like Half-Life 2, just without those glaring flaws that have become even more glaring over time.

This game holds up extremely well. In the days of PhysX, its use of native Source engine physics is still impressive. It's level design is consumate. It's difficulty can be adjusted incredibly well. The voice acting is as decent as you can expect from a game of its day.

Indeed - and in a very real way - if you can look past the unfinished plot, you will see glimpses of gaming brilliance that, sadly, went unnoticed in its day, and largely still does.

If you have $9.99 and love shooters, this game is a must-have, especially now that nearly everyone has the tech in their rigs to max its settings to proper HD, enhance with proprietary GPU driver filters, and really enjoy the experience as the designers intended.

There are some flaws in the game itself, but bear in mind it was supposed to be the 1st of 9 episodes. These flaws are an over-reliance on just one or two types of enemies, for example, and a few bugs in the AI that, understandably, never got patched. Unfortunately, it is just plain tough to tell where the designers were going with enemy design and how these one or two basic enemies were going to relate to what may have come.

All of that said, just drop the tenner and get it. It deserves it, and maybe, just maybe, if enough people show interest, the series will be picked up again.

93/100

This game perhaps lacks of weapons (mines, crossbow,..) and finally perhaps a little bit too short because no episodic sequel but overall i really enjoyed this game:
I've noticed an interesting use of Source engine in the level progression!
The story isn't really its best asset but the gunfights are dynamic thanks to an advanced AI and different fire modes for each weapons it's really pleasant!

NB: Keep in mind that the package includes: Sin (original+multi) & SDK (episode 1)
Tips: As far as I'm concerned i've use sv_cheats 1 & impulse 101 for more fun!
