Anyway, big-boobed Elexis is describing her world domination plans to one of her flunkies all the while her breasts are jiggling and threatening to bust out of her jumpsuit. At which point she says, “Soon my lovely creations will run loose across the globe…”) Naturally, SIN Gold has multi-player options (a must in today’s gaming world), and even includes add-on pack Wages of SIN, which expands the storyline of SIN by offering up more mutants and the mob.
It’s a bit of a challenge finding SIN deathmatch opponents in the competitive arena of first-person shooters, but they do exist. Fortunately, SIN Gold makes it even easier by including the GameRanger app, which will easily connect you to the popular Mac-only multiplayer site.
I had plenty of entertaining games with other ‘Sinners’ out there using both SIN and Wages of SIN, which has its own multiplayer maps.
SummaryOverall, SIN is a great addition to the long list of first-person shooters that are available to Mac gamers right now, even though it errs on the side of adolescence.
For the most part, I managed to ignore the tasteless elements of SIN and focus on the great gameplay, richly detailed and relatively realistic environments, likeable characters, and (perhaps most importantly) bargain price.
At only $20, SIN Gold is an excellent buy, especially with the Wages of SIN add-on pack.
