Seriously 2 hour games?
I guess I like long space sim games...
In any case, I explained Rebellion to my friend this way.
"Did you like Sins? Then you'll like Rebellion. Did you not like Sins? Then you won't like Rebellion."
At its core it's still Sins... it's just not enough new stuff. Simple as that. I bought the original Sins on day fucking 1 and I love and support this company quite a bit, but that needs to be addressed. We need new -stuff-. And options. Seriously, just like, give us a page that lets us turn off or on everything in the game. Planet types, ship types, techs etc. That'd make things a lot more interesting.
