À propos de ce jeu

Le nouvel épisode du STR primé !
Alors que de nombreuses personnes espéraient voir la diplomatie mettre un terme à la guerre, les différences d'opinion sur la marche à suivre, ainsi que l'épuisement des factions régnantes, ont conduit à une fragmentation des groupes concernés.
Les membres loyalistes de la Coalition marchande d'urgence ont adopté une politique d'isolation, en se concentrant sur l'amélioration de leurs défenses pour surmonter le reste de la guerre. Les rebelles ont préféré une vision purement militaire, étant arrivés à la conclusion que la seule façon d'apporter la paix est d'écraser tout ceux qui s'opposent à eux, en particulier les xenos.
La guerre a également provoqué un schisme au sein de l'Unité Advent, pour la première fois de son histoire. Les loyalistes continuent leur politique revancharde contre les Marchands, et tentent d'assimiler toutes les autres groupes afin de les placer sous l'influence de l'Unité. Cependant, d'autres membres de l'Advent soupçonnent la présence d'une corruption en leur sein qui aurait détourné l'Unité de son véritable destin.
Les divisions apparues au sein de l'Empire Vasari sont moins prononcées, mais tout aussi douloureuses pour la population. Avec des Vasari presque désespérés de rejoindre une nouvelle galaxie, la faction loyaliste a décidé d'abandonner toute coopération et de s'emparer des ressources dont elle a besoin par tous les moyens. La faction rebelle, quant à elle, a accepté la nécessité de travailler ensemble, et sent que sa meilleure chance de survie est de coopérer avec les autres races et de les emmener avec elle pour fuir l'ennemi qui se rapproche.
Portez la bataille pour la suprématie galactique à son niveau ultime dans Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, un jeu de stratégie 4X standalone combinant les aspects tactiques des jeux de stratégie en temps réel et la profondeur du genre 4X (explorer, étendre, exploiter, exterminer).

Caractéristiques principales :

  • Nouvelles factions — Choisissez les Loyalistes ou les Rebelles, chaque faction débloquant de nouveaux vaisseaux, technologies et styles de jeu pour chaque race.
  • Nouveaux vaisseaux de classe Titan — Les puissants Titans entrent en lice pour faire pencher la balance du pouvoir. Chaque faction peut envoyer son propre Titan sur le champ de bataille et faire appel à des pouvoirs et des avantages uniques.
  • Vaisseaux Capital supplémentaires et améliorés — Un nouveau vaisseau Capital rejoint la flotte de chaque race pour offrir à chacune encore plus d'options tactiques. En plus de cela, tous les vaisseaux Capital existants gagnent quatre niveaux supplémentaires pour leurs compétences, permettant ainsi aux joueurs de se concentrer sur des avantages spécifiques de leurs vaisseaux.
  • Nouveaux vaisseaux de classe Corvette — Chaque faction a developpé un nouvel appareil d'attaque légère, petit et manœuvrable, conçu pour harceler les forces ennemies.
  • Effets visuels améliorés — Mise à jour des graphismes, effets de particules, d'éclairage et d'ombre, interface spécifique à chaque race et autres améliorations rendent l'univers de Sins' plus somptueux que jamais.
  • Nouvelles conditions de victoire — Remportez la victoire par différentes voies : Militaire, Diplomatique, Recherche, Dernier vaisseau amiral, Dernière capitale ou Occupation.
  • Nouveau son — Plus de 60 minutes de musique originale, d'innombrables nouveaux effets sonores et des dizaines de nouveaux doublages pour apporter un nouveau degré d'immersion à des batailles épiques.

J'ai passé de nombreuses heures sur SoaSE à sa sortie. C'était un régal. Ceci dit, je n'avais pas pris les extensions, donc je me suis rattrapé avec Rebellion et je dois dire... Je suis soufflé!
On retrouve toutes les bonnes choses du jeu original (normal) + les ajouts des extensions; ça fait plaisir.
Rebellion, en lui même, apporte de "nouvelles" factions, de nouvelles recherches, et les Titans, ces vaisseaux immenses et surpuissants.
C'est reparti pour des dizaines d'heures de plaisir!

The alone executable extension rebellion grinds Sins of a Solar Empire definitive finding on the space strategy jewel.

Rebellion in the current three playable factions split into two sub-groups so that we can build our star with six different parties kingdom now. Since all have their own special units and technologies, we start new batches future to all the dear. And that's not even the most important innovation, rebellion has even bigger in store. Not to say: Titans.

In orbit of our planet, we are building research laboratories, shipyards, defense platforms, trading post or starbases; we are building raw materials, collect taxes, conduct trading, moving through diplomatic parquet and send naturally fleets in space battles.
The latter we propose to up to ten computer controlled or (in multiplayer mode via LAN or Internet) human opponents, which also wrestle on the infinitely zoomable map Galaxy for the upper hand.

We put the starting conditions laid individually, such as the map size, the six-enemy AI or frame events such as regular pirate raids. With rebellion also win new opportunities are added, such as diplomacy or research. Thus, each player can cope tailor it according to his needs.

- Vasari Loyalists, for instance, have a hate on for pretty much all other races, and can eat planets.
- Vasari Rebels, on the other hand, are more easygoing when it comes to buddying up with other species, and they specialize in nanotechnology.
- TEC Loyalists are all about defense, with cheaper starbases and the ability to deploy two of these behemoths around planets.
- TEC Rebels are all about conquest and can ally with pirates and neutrals to go on the offensive.
- Advent Loyalists are aggressive mind-controllers out to assimilate enemies.
- Advent Rebels are a little more on the spiritual side and can revive destroyed ships.

Graphically, Rebellion is a good looking game on the PC, especially on full detail. Even though at times the graphics may seem a little bland, there is some great attention to detail in the game, and some really cool particle effects when enemies are blown to hell.
There are some nice cut scenes that assist in the overall story telling of the title. Finally a great soundtrack and some subtle sound effects that assist in immerging you into this intergalactic battle or loyalists and rebels of the various factions. All in all, gameplay, graphics and sound comes together in a way that makes this an addictive yet entertaining gaming experience.

When the Titans is huge flagships, each player may only build one - and that's a good thing, because the Titans prove to be extremely powerful. So runs each of the six parties on a chic, custom titanium with their own special abilities.

For the construction of our flying fortress, we must first, however once unlock a four-stage research branch, provide enough fleet and crew capacity, build a titanium shipyard and apply masses of money, resources and patience - as does the work.

As a reward for their efforts rewarded with a large and magnificent flagship, which often serves as the last knight in shining armor. Particularly spectacular it is when two titans led by fleets meet - in the following large-scale battle it hails explosions such as tomatoes after a bad concert.

Overpowering the Titans are not, however, because of the upgraded starbase and huge naval formations they bite without support from the teeth. Since all size does continue the balance.
The bottom line is extended Rebellion game mechanics of Sins of a Solar Empire so meaningful and thought out, from a mere extent of the addon should veterans but be a little disappointed. All the more so since they again have to buy the complete package for the new features.

This is an excellent game, with loads of new options and an incredible amount of tactical depth, it does show the age of the series. Until that game launches, however, you can get your space-empire fix from this outstanding stand-alone expansion, which contains enough ways to conquer a galaxy to tide you over for a very long time.

TL:DR? See Conclusion

INTRODUCTION:
Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion is a massive real-time strategy game developed by Ironclad Games and published by Stardock Entertainment. It is the third standalone expansion in the popular Sins of a Solar Empire line of games and stands as testament to why this genre can only work with the PC Platform. Although the game is classified as an RTS, it does feature a lot of 4X (Civilization type) elements which the developers are calling the 'RT4X' genre.

The player takes control of a space faring civilization whose sole objective is to be the most dominant force in the Galaxy. Achieve this either through military force, diplomatic means or economic superiority. Lead your civilization from a small single planet colony into a vast interplanetary empire spanning multiple worlds and multiple star systems.

PROS:
+ Epic in scale (The player can choose to either play in one solar system only, or expand their empire to other solar systems if the map permits)
+ Massive space combat and intense fleet engagements
+ Beautiful Graphics and Visuals
+ Good ship and space station variety
+ Ship and space station customization and upgrades
+ Complex and solid core gameplay
+ Simple and easy to manage Empire Tech Tree
+ Incorporates the features of the previous expansions without forcing you to buy them
+ High replayability
+ Seamless Zoom Function (Marvel at your fleet or the intense ship on ship combat)
+ Playable even with some lower end computers
+ Modding potential (Example: See Star Trek 3 Armada mod)

CONS:
- No Campaign mode and even if there was...(see below)
- Story is negligible
- Steep learning curve
- Capital/Titan Ships and Space stations have no hardpoints (see Star Wars: Empire at War space combat)
- Only three main factions to play (although there are 6 sub-factions)
- Stardock Account Management

CONCLUSION:
GREAT GAME but NOT FOR EVERYONE. If you're the type of gamer who's really into real-time strategy or 4X games and have a lot of free time to burn, then this game would be great. It's massive in scale with dozens of ships clashing in some of the most epic space warfare I have ever seen. Outside of combat, it has a good and complex empire management system akin to the 4X genre. The game also runs surprisingly well with the last generation computer systems since its game engine still only need the system requirements back in 2008 when it was first released.

GOOD BUY and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for Space, Sci-Fi, RTS and 4X fans.

Excellent RTS Game, The mods for this game are also incredible like Dawn of the Reapers (Mass Effect), Sins of a Galactic Empire (Star Wars) and Sins of the Prophets (Halo). I downloaded the Halo mod before i even got the game itself, haha.

A truly wonderful space based RTS. The 3 races play very differently from one another and the sub-factions are distinct enough to make you change your style depending on whether you're the Loyalists or Rebels.

The game's pace can be easily adjusted in the pregame options to suit your skill and the AI does a good job of building counters to your units (e.g. you build long range, AI builds corvettes). Having said that, the AI has a greater emphasis on the Artifical as opposed to Intelligence as it essentially attempts to win through attrition.

But such AI strategies are to be expected and, in my opinion, lead to some pretty epic battles. Build a starbase on a key chokepoint and station a fleet there to try and hold the line, if you're playing Hard or higher the AI will be charging your line in no time with capital ships, frigates, corvettes, cruisers and even titans.

The game is also extremely moddable. If you can read this review you can mod a good portion of Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion. There are also tonnes of mods already created (Halo, Star Wars, Star Trek, etc.).

Finally, while the game does not have a campaign I personally feel this is no loss. Honestly ask yourself, "Would I play the campaign more than three times?" Probably not unless there was some meaningful reward (which would be difficult to work into the game). As a result, the omission of a four to eight hour campaign is no big loss.

I could go on and on but I'm worried you'll keep reading when you should just go get the game already!

Space Strategy enthusiasts rejoice: real-time strategy meets 4X rules in a seamlessly zoomable universe that hasn't looked or felt this polished since the original Homeworld game. Marketed as a stand-alone expansion for Sins of a Solar Empire, Rebellion basically sums up every mechanic introduced in every expansion to date - fight off pirates and opposing empires, establish trade routes, colonize or raise every planet in your solar system... and beyond. It has the same addictiveness as Civilization, in that you feel like you're playing a board game in which your faction fights to rule the universe using various tools or domination and manipulation, every match a new iteration in the array of destinies you can forge. On top of that, the space battles are impressive in both scale and effects: tons of freaking laser beams, rockets and machine gun fire keep you at the edge of your seat when a few hundred ships in your fleet meet a few hundred of your opponents' craft and clash in a display of fireworks that is so visceral and pretty it blows your brains out and leaves you slack jawed at the display of awesomeness.

BUY it if you:
-Enjoy RTS games and civ builders alike.
-Want to engage in large-scale space battles with budget hardware (the game's zoom function works like a miracle, letting you join in on epic skirmishes or zoom out to manage your home planet in the blink of an eye).
-Always wanted to recreate the Dominion assault on Deep Space Nine or some other notoriously nerdy science fiction scene you're almost embarassed you enjoy so much.

DO NOT BUY it if you:
-Hate the pacing of RTS games (learning hotkeys, developing effective build orders and being fast in setting your bases is essential to mastering Sins of a Solar Empire, and if you need time to think things through, you might be better off waiting for Civilization: Beyond Earth for your 4X fix).
-Expect a campaign or any kind of predesigned narrative - Rebellion has none.

Think Age of Empires. Then think Rome: Total War. Now throw those games into space and fast-foward a couple thousand years, and you'll get Sins of a Solar Empire. This game takes space combat where it has never gone before. The arrray of different ships is vast, the visuals stunning, and the game play rewarding. You can zoom the map all the way out to view 5 solar systems at once, or zoom all the way down to a single fighter as it zips around a mind-bogglingly large and colorful battle.

My only complaint is that sometimes the game can feel too big, if you are playing on the largest map scale, and you find yourself waiting for a good 5 minutes as your fleet traverses one system to the next in search of the enemy. Build scouts!

VERY addictive game that takes ALOT of time per game, The mechanics are very rounded and well thought out and gameplay is immersive. games are quite slow at first due to resource rate and the ammount of time needed to start to grow ingame. However once started it can be very difficult and fast paced.

One of the best space strategies I've ever played. Three races, six factions fighting for right to rule over solar systems. Great idea, better performance.

For me this game is fun when it's quick, if you do not speed up the game it's very slow and boring, so i recomend 4x normal speed. Singleplayer good, multiplayer better!
If you are fan of strategies, don't forget this one.

First review in a while, but this game deserves it.

I'll start out with the somewhat common "my playtime is inaccurate" speech, having played more than 200 hours of this and it's previous incarnations through Impulse.

Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion is truly one of a kind. This version basically combines the entirety of the 2 previous titles, Trinity and regular ol' SoaSE, so Rebellion truly has it all and more.

As such, this review is kind of both a Rebellion review and SoaSE in general review, because I've never reviewed the original or Trinity as there is no real story to this game, which makes it a difficult game to even explain to the masses who enjoy story driven games.

I tend to play a Single Player skirmish with 2 or 3 Hard AI players, however in the past have spent a great deal of time playing lengthy LAN matches, which were loads of fun, but ultimately one of the only major flaws of SoaSE comes out through such lengthy matches, even just playing against AI.
That flaw has been given a bad wrap in more recent times because of the evolution and adoption of Multi Core processor technology.

Essentially this game does not utilise multicore CPU's and unfortunately there is no fix for this, even after extensive research and optimisation mod trialling. But to their credit, those mods are great for getting the game to run on lower spec systems, laptops, virtualisation/steaming etc, but no mod can add 64bit or multicore support. That's the game's engine limitation, and it's not the only one around... I'm looking at you Cities XL.

It is important to note that at regular playing speed, this takes tens of hours of a single match to even be a problem, but on lower spec, lower (and older) GHz systems, this happens within about an hour give or take 30mins of regular speed play time with a couple of AI players.

With all that said, one of THE greatest longevity features for me is the ability to speed up the game time by 2x, 4x and 8x increments, even in a LAN match (host must change it).

Because of the vast expanses of space and [travelling] time at regular speed, this speed up feature can actually make for a much more challenging game, albeit much faster. Generally you will have to sacrifice micro management for macro at those speeds, but on large scale maps with only 2 or 3 players, with multiple star systems, the ability to speed up hyperspace travel from a distant planet to another is a HUGE time saving and action creating element and there is no penalty or lock down on the control of the game speed that you have, apart from it's 4 presets, so interchanging between them can be as fluid as zooming in or out and the speed controls can be remapped as well as basically everything else.

When I first discovered this speed up feature in the original Sins, it was, at first, not something I was looking for or really cared about, largely because I was still learning the controls and the game at the time.
When I was finally bored with the amount of time it took to setup, capture, defend, build and deploy, it would be too long for a single game session, and that bothered and still bothers me.

Command & Conquer (up until and including 3) had the right recipe for possible lengths of a single player skirmish battle. With Sins this isn't possible at regular speed, that is if you're interested in actually establishing a large empire of any sort instead of rushing with a dozen weak ships, which gets stale fast.

The camera controls in Sins are very fluid and quite unique, and once you get the hang of it, there really is nothing like it, some things are similar but the ability to orbit and zoom freely around any axis while fixed on a certain point is impressive, and the instant ability to track any of your fleet and zoom right in to the ship and it's details or zoom right out to galaxy level all in real time and fluid as your mouse can move. An RTS camera/movement system that IMO rivals that of what Blizzard, Westwood or EA have ever done is definitely worth a mention in this review.

The 3 original factions, the TEC, Advent and Vasari have been Loyalist-ised and given their Rebel counterparts in this final Sins title and have created many new ways of playing the game. I found that this is by far the most balanced of the 3 in the series mainly because of the 3 extra sub-faction additions, which also open up Role-Playing type elements of having say, 3 Rebel factions vs 3 Loyalist factions in a desperate struggle to take control over a strange galaxy.

The in-game Map Designer is also worth a mention, although it takes a fair bit of trial and error to get something you're happy with, and even then playing your own creations can sometimes backfire or surprise you in ways you never thought possible.
The only downside is the lack of manipulation you have on Planets and Stars. The "Map Designer" is basically a Map Generator.
If you've ever wanted to take on several hundred space pirate homeworlds in the one solar system then Sins is for you!
But in all seriousness, the Map Designer does a pretty good job once you learn how it works and ways you can create interesting maps just by changing sliders and numbers.
If you're really serious about designing your own Solar System or Galaxy then Ironclad have supplied everyone with their GalaxyForge editor which is used to create the many included Single and Multiplayer premade maps.

My Pros & Cons shortlist;

Pros:
+ One of a kind space-based RTS gameplay
+ Useful and informative dialogue boxes, hovering over icons has been given great attention to detail.
+ Massive tech tree
+ Awesome scale of real time space battles and large scale empire building.
+ Fine control over placement of your buildings, or for riskier, faster matches, an "Auto place" feature for Buildings which is also a +
+ Interesting and unique items, ships, power-ups, upgrades
+ The graphics scale really well across many many different types of systems, but the close up details can be a bit disappointing even at Ultra settings.
+ Inclusion of both a Map Designer & GalaxyForge editor.

Cons:
- Fairly steep learning curve and long match times
- Units (mainly Capital Ships) of the same type have to be upgraded individually, on a small scale this is less important then on a larger one.
- No minimap
- Left Planet, Structure and Unit tree can't be hidden. Capturing more than 10-20 planets adds much more time navigating and cuts any efficiency of the tree at all.
- Some tasks would be better left automated, such as the 2 scout ships that you start with should have their exploration ability Autocast set to on, not off. Also Metal and Crystal mines could be auto-built after you have captured a planet and have the resources to spare
- At regular speed it takes far too long to reach higher tech levels in a single match
- Can be boring in stages of early travel or exploration. Once you've seen the same variations of desert, ice, volcanic, terran and asteroids over and over, the excitement wears down over time (tens to hundreds of hours for me)
- Not just a con of Sins, but most RTS games really need the ability to 'mute' a certain Unit or Building you are queuing up and and creating 50 or 100+ of the same Units and the game wants to announce the successful creation of every single one.
