Sin Preview Posted
2:21 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

We thought we would mention this here, for those of you that bookmark IMG's news page. We have just posted a preview of Sin, Ritual's explosive shooter which is coming to the Mac quite soon from United Developers. While considered to be 'dated' on the PC side due to its age and use of the Quake II engine, this solo and multiplayer title has a lot to offer Mac gamers. Here's an excerpt from the preview, describing the main character:

Blade isnít your average mall rent-a-cop armed with an Orange Julius and a radio. Heís got a full arsenal of weapons, including a pistol, shotgun, assault rifle, machine gun, rocket launcher and more. Enemies can take locational damage as well, meaning a head shot is a much better idea to both take them down fast and conserve ammo. You donít have to worry about Deus Ex-style aiming either, Sin is much more of a straight FPS and you can shoot accurately from the start. Blood spots will highlight where youíve made a hit on a bad guy (or yourself, so be careful). The enemy AI is smart enough to run if theyíve taken too much damage and try to flee your blazing guns. They can also hear you coming if youíre noisy, so a bit of stealth might be in order when moving around.
For more on this plot-driven shooter, check out the rest of our preview. Sin is just weeks away from release by United Developers.
