  1. A must-buy expansion. While I badly want to see larger-scale enhancements to the gameplay for future expansions, the amount of content in this release still balances very well against its cost, and those 'turtle'-styled RTS gamers (guilty here) hesitant to get onboard Sins of a Solar Empire due to the lack of any real defensive options will now have a great reason to pick it up.
  2. Sins of a Solar Empire: Entrenchment is a nice addition to an excellent game. [Apr 2009]
  3. 87
    The new defensive options add tremendous excitement to the game and definitely fill a hole, tactically speaking. The new star bases are worth the price of admission alone.
  4. Sins of a Solar Empire: Entrenchment is a pretty good, and any die-hard Sins of a Solar Empire will definitely obtain. The only thing that might shun players away is the $9.95 price point for only a couple new upgrades and units. Although playing with the new star bases makes this purchase well worth it.
  5. Entrenchment is an excellent micro-add-on that will suck you back into multi-hour games of Sins of a Solar Empire and introduce tons of new strategic options. [June 2009, p.86]
