Excerpt: I'm not sure what game Di Luo claims to have played months after it came out. Sure, 1UP manages to review MGS3:S the day of and slobber all over the simple additions... but it takes months to review a CDV game? That said, Hammer & Sickle isn't perfect.
Summary: I'm glad I didnt read some of these reviews before I bought the game! Its much better than most of these. Its exactly what Ive been wanting, a tactical RPG! The story is really good. Playing a Russian is extremely cool, and your character does not have to be all good, like in so many games.
Summary: Third game in a fantastic series, this game does not work on modern PCs. There are two issues; one is with the outdated copy protection, which does not run under Vista or Windows 7, and so the game cannot be played.
Summary: This is a real shame. Silent Storm and Silent Storm: Sentinels were total classics with brilliant combat and gameplay. This follow-up somehow, despite using the same engine, mucks up the combat. The role-playing aspect which sounded like a good idea doen't really work.
Summary: P>Firstly it's its a great combination of the turn based strategy with RPG. Game has dynamic difficulty setter. For example you can choose how much damage you will do as a percentage. Even you can choose saving settings.
Summary: I am a great fan of tactical rpgs,having playing them all, ranging from fallout tactics to the UFO series. But this game is in a world of its own. It beats all by a country mile because of the following points: An absolutely stunning engine with great effects and graphics.
