Prisoner of War (Xbox)
29 March 2005
Excerpt: If you\'re a fan of the movies such as The Great Escape, or even Chicken Run, you may find that you enjoy Prisoner of War. As the game begins, you take on the role of Captain Lewis Stone, a WWII pilot who is shot down while flying on a mission.
Excerpt: In Prisoner of War, you play as Captain Lewis Stone, an American pilot during World War 2. Flying over Germany on a mission, he gets shot down and finds himself in a prisoner camp. As the headstrong Captain, you must use stealth to find a way to get out the camp.
Pros: Stealth gameplay is solid, Voiceovers are pretty good
Cons: Graphic engine doesn't take advantage of the Xbox, Camera can cause trouble
Excerpt: POW does an excellent job of retelling history in an accurate, yet entertaining manner. Life in a prison camp is depicted as predictably rigid. Waking, eating, working, and lights-out all occur on an extremely strict schedule. This deals the player a unique challenge.
Excerpt: "Prisoner of War" is an interesting, if not entirely successful attempt to replicate escape films like the recent "Hart's War". Players take on the role of Captain Lewis Stone, who is shot down with his co-pilot during a routine mission.
Excerpt: Codemasters brings us a really innovative WWII-themed title. Prisoner of War puts you in the role of a downed American fighter pilot, and it ain't all Hogan's Heroes. You'll sneak around, infiltrate, steal and escape, but you won't fire a shot from a weapon.
Pros: ups: Innovative gameplay; some nice visuals; strategic stealth; develops some nice tension.
Cons: downs: Cheesy cutscenes; some camera glitches; slow pace will turn off some gamers.
Excerpt: Long-time readers of this column will know how highly I value successful execution of innovation. It wasn't until the recent Super Mario Sunshine that I realized how long it'd been since I'd played a non-violent game.
Conclusion: Conclusion Prisoner of War est un jeu au concept novateur. Vous évader d'un camp allemand avec pour seules armes, tactique et ruse, bref la grande évasion réincarnée ? Hélas non, le jeu est trop confus, souffre d'un niveau graphique grossier et bâclé. Une I.A.
Conclusion: Unterm Strich ist Prisoner of War also ein ideenreiches Action-Adventure, welches jedoch mit einigen KI-Problemen zu kämpfen hat und aufgrund einer Grafikqualität, die jeder Beschreibung spottet, nur Spielern zu empfehlen ist, welche dem Kredo folgen: Gameplay vor Grafik!
