The Great Escapes

  • Excerpt: To me Prisoner of War was marketed as a cross between the movie Stalag 17 and the TV show Hogan’s Heroes for the computer. As a fan of both, when I saw that it was coming out, I ran to my editor and begged to be the reviewer.

The suspenseful sneaking gameplay and strong dose of character interaction make Prisoner of War a game that's by all means different from most others out there.

  • Summary: The idea of being trapped in a Nazi prison camp probably doesn't sound very good, but the idea of busting out of one possibly might. Escape is the goal in Prisoner of War, a short but original and often entertaining adventure game that challenges you to free yourself from the clutches of the Germans...
  • Pros: N/A

  • Conclusion: To put it briefly, Prisoner of War is a very good 3rd person sneaker filled with action, suspense, and with enough missions to hold you attention for several days. The game requires you to burn a few brain cells, by utilizing Stone's skills the best possible way in order to escape from a camp.
  • Pros: Good story. The mission structure is excellent. Using tactics and sneaking skills against the powerful AI is quite a challenge;
  • Cons: Can get a tad too challenging for an average gamer. Poor textures and reflections in the background. Repetitive skins on the German guard models. Bad voiceovers of German soldiers. Control and camera issues take some getting use to.

  • Excerpt: A II. világháború történéseit számtalan fejlesztő feldolgozta már, ám a hadifogságba esett katonák életéről eddig nem sok játék emlékezett meg. A Rail Simulatorról elhíresült brit Kuju Entertainment brightoni illetőségű stúdiója, a Wide Games ezt a hiányosságot igyekszik pótolni.
  • Pros: + hiánypótló játékötlet, + hangok, + történet
  • Cons: - csúnya grafika, - akadozó irányítás, - ellaposodó játékmenet

  • Conclusion: Wide Games haben ein gutes Spiel abgeliefert, das bisweilen genial motivierende Momente hat. Leider trüben einige Mängel den Spielspass von denen zwar keiner gravierend ist, sich aber in der Gesamtheit doch Spielspassmindernd auswirken.

  • Summary: Ganz klar, 'Prisoner of War' ist ein zweischneidiges Schwert. Die nicht mehr ganz taufrische Grafik-Engine, die deutlichen Schwächen in der KI und die nur wenig authentische Umsetzung der spannenden Thematik trüben den Spielspass doch merklich.

  • Summary: Пожалуйста, не ждите десятков тысяч полигонов и убойных спецэффектов, стрельбы, ожесточенных драк и безостановочного экшена. Prisoner of War пришла к нам в гости из дикой страны аркад всего лишь со свежей идеей и такой любовью к деталям, какую порой и в "чистых" РС-играх не найти.

  • Conclusion: Prisoner of War consegue saciar, em parte, a saudade que temos dos jogos de aventura do passado. É bem divertido e original, diferente da grande maioria dos jogos atuais que só sabem focar na ação desenfreada.
  • Pros: Bem original e diferente do que existe na atualidade;, Divertido a valer;, Vozes bacaninhas;
  • Cons: Um bocado pequeno;, Muito linear, não dá para você fazer o que quiser na hora que quiser;, Inteligência artificial podia ser melhor.
