This include Sin 1 source or whatever? If so I might pick it up as Sin 1 owns.

Hmm, for $10 I'll have to consider it. Does the retail version include Sin 1 or is that a Steam-version exclusive? Oh and are they still doing that Sin Multiplayer thing that they talked about a while ago? Then again, I don't know how you can have multiplayer with 3 weapons...

Retail version IS the Steam version. Just like HL2 you need Steam and an internet account to play.

As far as I know, they are still working on Ep2 and Multiplayer. They have needed to go back and re think the whole project due to Valve Quality Assurance relating to Episodic Content. Basically it will mean a better game for us, but a bigger delay.

I still have it installed when I feel like a quick killing spree.It's actually very colorful and fun to play,besides you need the storyline if the next chapter ever comes out :p

Not worth it in my opinion. It was a lame and generic shooter. I doubt that we'll see episode 2.

Hmm...I never played the original SIN before, was it any good? Although I hate steam, that is a good price for any good classic game, old or new. If this includes the original game in all of its glory, then that would be worth it.

I saw the video of the sin episode one before, and it didn't look terribly interesting. (Looked like a half life 2 mod, bleh)

Agreed game was total let down, lousy story and some really terrible use of textures. Like that lego car you start off in. They screwed over a whole community back when Sin 1 was released. Left everyone high and dry. This time round, lots of promises. Though they did release Arcade mode, they negged on mp and now state it will come with Episode 2. They got flamed up and down their forums, don't suspect I'd see these shmucks releasing Episode 2 or the Mp. Like Sin 1 they will disappear just as fast as they came back...

The original SiN was great. It had a rough release due to bugs, but after a rather large patch (20mb or so back in 98). It became a pretty good shooter with a great story, I actually liked it better than Half-Life at first. Until I got a better rig to fully enjoy Half-Life (Oh the A3D sounds).

This new SiN was a let down, but I'm a huge fan of Ritual and the SiN universe (hey I even bought the horrible movie) so I still loved every minute of it.

P.S. The soundtrack (porbably the games best feature) is up on iTunes. Well worth the purchase if you like film/game soundtracks.

Is this recreation of SiN 1 as good as the original? Or was it the new episode that was the let down?

The new Episode is a let down. The recreation of the original that comes with SiN: Episodes is the same game as the original (much like HL:Source) with a few adult content changes. I think they are working on recreating the original game again but fully ported over to Source, like what the Black Mesa Source team are aiming for.

Nipples and headshot gore I think. Basic skin changes is all. I think they added a few ads for SiN: Episodes too, to replace a few of the more adult posters and mags found about the place. I assume the swearing is still there. Blade didn't swear too much. Holy**** is about it.

Are there any third party add-ons that will put all of this back in?

There was a thread about this not to long ago.

There are a few rumors.


It has been canceled
There have been delays due to staff changes
They have started from scratch due to Valve's policy on Episodic content.


I personally believe it's a combination of 2 and 3. Though 1 is the one is see on most news sites. As far as I know there has been no official news about Episode 2.

It is worth $10 for a FPS.I have been wondering about Sin Episode 2,I thought it would be out by now,as for as that goes I thought HL2 episode2 would also be out by now.
