Summary

Built using Valve's Source engine, this follow-up to the SiN series takes on an episodic structure, expanding on the role of Colonel John R. Blade, a battle worn hero in charge of HardCorps. Joining Blade on his mission are JC, a HardCorps hacker with a secret to keep, and Jessica Cannon, a fiery rookie who can find her way into any secure facility.

The first chapter, Emergence, features never-before-seen weapons, characters and environments along with a host of interactive options, paying homage to its predecessors, SiN and its expansion pack, Wages of SiN.

In concept, SiN Episodes: Emergence uses a novel approach by presenting an interesting story-telling method through the use of episodes. However, the story itself is lacking and the gameplay grows redundant, leaving little incentive for all but the most hardcore SiN fans to return for episode two.

Fans of first-person shooters will get their fix from SiN Episodes: Emergence, but they might not leave the experience feeling genuinely excited for the next installment. The idea of splitting up a game like this into separate episodes seems like a good one, since many of us would be more than willing to pay $20 for an excellent single-player game that ties into subsequent chapters of the story. Yet the action and especially the story in Emergence aren't particularly impressive, so by the end of this brief episode, the novelty will have probably worn off.

For episodic content to really take off compelling storylines must be a major component. SiN Episodes: Emergence has a number of shortcomings, but its weak storyline is the most noticeable. The success of the series as a whole is riding on this first episode, but other than being a fun shooter, it does nothing to hook the player. It's a piece of throwaway entertainment that's available for a moderately cheap price, but considering what it needed to be, Ritual hasn't really delivered the goods.
