    Yes, folks, developer Panther Games has finally delivered a friendly AI worthy of the term "intelligence." [Oct 2002, p.78]

    I can live with a few little pissers when the overall game is so exciting, exquisitely designed, and meticulous in its historical accuracy. [Oct 2002, p.92]

    A top-notch effort, Airborne Assault is not only detailed, realistic, challenging, and fun, but innovative to boot.
  4. A well-researched and designed game that's a bit of a departure from your standard war game.
  5. It centers on a battle with a lot of mobility, clearly defined objectives, and unique challenges for both sides. Couple this with Panther Games' innovative gameplay system and you have one of the best single-battle wargames since Atomic Games' "V for Victory" series.

    The game's genius is that it forces you to focus on the command structure as a basis for strategy in a way no wargame has done so far. [Nov 2002, p.128]
  7. Advanced strategy game fans will find Airborne Assault a true challenge and this game should not be missed.
  8. Delivers a fresh approach to the RTS genre and with its great detail, addictive gameplay and excellent replay value it is definitely worth a look for any RTS game fan.
