    If Cannon Fodder 3 had been released a decade ago, it would have become a cult hit. Now, it's a just a decent old-school arcade game.

    A worthy sequel to one of the most addictive strategy games ever made. It may not have the catchy song, but war still has never been this much fun.

    A game best played in short bursts. Extended sessions prove slightly tedious, while a few poor design choices mar what is otherwise an enjoyable, albeit shallow, action game.

    A poor substitute for more focused action or strategy. [Apr 2012, p.116]

    The true hiccup of this old-style shooter is the foolish price on Steam. Valve's digital shelves are full of better arcade and indie games for the admission price tag of 18 Euros.

    A buggy, ultimately dull recreation of a 90s classic. [May 2012, p.62]

    Disappointing, but at the end of the day, it is what it is, and what it is, is a 3rd CF game with terrible loading.

    An awkward and ugly modern take on a fun old game. Somehow suffers from terrible load times on modern rigs. You're much better off trackingAn awkward and ugly modern take on a fun old game.
