  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]

    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]

Nothing more fun than seeing an entire AI fleet get mushed to a pulp when attacking a fully upgraded starbase with a small garriosn of troops with it, really solves the problems from the first game. :) Full Review »

    If after reading Sins has an expansion you have any desire to play again then buy this expansion. It adds lovely new options to play with forIf after reading Sins has an expansion you have any desire to play again then buy this expansion. It adds lovely new options to play with for a ridiculously low price. The balance is as near perfect as it could be, ignore others who think balance = mirror image factions, the AI got more I, and it's crash free for me so far. Full Review »
