An PC game released in the winter period of 1998. Sin was a first
person shooter that used the then 'cutting edge' Quake II engine
to great effect. Gameplay wise, it shared a few similarities to Goldeneye
on the Nintendo 64, where for each level, you had to carry
out a set number of tasks in a particular order, to be able to succeed. You played as protagonist John R Blade, who's mission it was to rid the local city
called Freeport, of a evil bitch called Elexis Sinclaire, who was in the midst
of devising a plan to take
over the world, by creating vast mutant armies
from a illegal chemical
concoction called U4.
When Sin initially came out, critics bashed it for having glitches
and freezing issues. However, a patch
was eventually released
. Although, it never managed to compete with sales of the first Half Life, which was released
at around the same time.
