Summary: I can't believe that another version of this game hasn't been brought it. The idea of prison escape is quite romantic, especially during the Second World War. The game is simple enough, you collect items that you will need in order to escape (stealth is the aim of the game), and eventually go all out for the bid to freedom. Some of the controls can be fairly awkward, especially when indoors and the camera gets trapped in walls.
Summary: truly incredcible concept, so ur in a pow camp and it work that way exactly as it should u have to attend the camp events of teh mess hall roll call and so on whilst tryna sneek around and complete objectives given by teh escape comitee its like an rpg game bcasue every thing is simple and dull at first eventualy u meet new characters and find new equipment which all effect how teh story goes along, and it has a stupid sence of humour the nazi hav high pitch voice and in...
Summary: As you can see from the mixed reviews on this page, this game isn't for everyone. It requires dedication and patience to get through. Although it's nowhere near as brainbendingly difficult as 'Commandos 2', it does present a challenge, and not always in the way the developers intended. No, it's not perfect, but if you can pick it up cheap and you like games which require a touch of grey matter, I'd strongly recommend it.
Summary: I got my Xbox as soon as it came out and since then I have been looking for a good stategy style game to play. So when Prisoner of War came out it seemed worth buying. You control Captain Stone who was captured by the Germans and taken to a small POW camp. You have to complete four missions per camp to escape. Overall there are five levels spread over three camps. The gameplay is great you can interact with fellow prisoners and with the surroundings.
Summary: If you have seen the film "The Great Escape" or the funnny cop out of it, "Chicken Run" and enjoyed them, then u will definatley enjoy this game. You are playing the role of an American pilot (Lewis Stone) shot down over Germany and the made a prisoner of war, who sets out to escape the prison. You are sent out to 4 different camps. If you are expecting top notch action shooting like Medal of Honor:AA then this game isnt for you.
Summary: An cool idea for a game, executed pretty well. The game allows you to wonder around various prison camps (3 in total) over 5 levels solving various problems to escape or just generally annoy your captors. The graphics are very nice, however the camera positioning at time can be a bit poor. There seems to be muliple ways of accomplishing each task that occurs but the tasks can be a little linear. The control system is simple to pick up, so it's very quick to get into.
Summary: While Prisoner Of War doesn't have the "thousands of possible solutions" boasted on the back of the box, it is still a very good game. There are 5 chapters to the game set across 3 different camps (The holding camp, Stalag Luft & Colditz Castle). The day is split into morning roll call, breakfast, morning exercise, lunch, afternoon free time, evening roll call, lights out.
Not the greatest game ever, but certainly a good one

Summary: Prisoner of War sees you playing Captain Lewis Stone - shot down over Germany Stone must escape from a number of prison camps. you must help him do this by sneaking around the camp and collecting a number of items to complete four challenges per level. There is no violence in the game - you have to use stealth. The graphics are almost top notch - there are a few places where it looks like children have drawn some of the faces.
Summary: If you watch Great Escape every Christmas, and enjoy it *every* year, if you loved the game 'Commandos', if you enjoy stealth gameplay as opposed to out-and-out explosive gameplay, then this is the game for you. Right from the start, the game gives you no quarter, with the guards being as clever as they are at the end, the plans you concoct need to be as sharp. The game sets you as Capt. Lewis Stone (an American), who is shot down over Germany during WWII.
Summary: Having waited months for the release of this game i was anxious about the quality of the game. however i was not to be disappointed, as the game was everything i expected, even with the reduced playing scenarios and fewer characters of the original version, the tasks and atmosphere maintain quality sweaty palm and hair raising tension throughout the missions.
