  1. But Galactic Assault: Prisoner of Power is certainly worth a good look for the turn-based strategy fans out there, and for those wanting something a few steps from the mainstream market.

    An entertaining tactical puzzle game. If only there was more room for actual strategic manoeuvres and more alternative ways to complete the missions. [Oct 2007]

Too bad the devs took as setting some soviet sci-book which no one knows. I'm a russian myself and haven't ever heard of this novel. Missions are too linear and graphics pretty outdated. Strangely enough, with all the complicated set of rules in this game it doesn't make a better game than Massive Assault. All in all, good game design with poor presentation. Full Review »

    This game is a real gem for those who prefer TBS games. It's based on rather unique concept. 9 is great for this title.
