Excerpt: Although there are many similarities to Panzer General and Allied General, Fantasy General is still a refreshing change for those comfortable with the interface yet eager for new worlds to conquer. SSI has managed to maintain all the best features of the previous 5-Star games yet still created a new game. We recommend this game wholeheartedly even to wargamers not typically interested in the fantasy genre.
Excerpt: S.S.I. has a long history of producing excellent RPGs and wargames, but their latest title in the Five-Star Series, Fantasy General, is a strange hybrid that combines the most unsavory elements of both. Backed by some sharp, if lifeless, visuals and a soundtrack that's designed to keep ‘em rockin' in the cathedrals with out-of-place pipe-organ and sopranic arias, Fantasy General seems aimed at a bizarre and very unlikely audience.
