    It's just a great tactical exercise for strategy gamers of any rank.
  2. A perfect game for those who are new to turn-based gaming but veterans might feel that it's still no different than last week's date.

    If you're a fan of turn-based games or the Second World War (and who doesn't like the war?) then PGIII is definitely worth your attention.
  4. The welcome return of a massively branching campaign structure, along with dozens of battles to fight, units to deploy, and officers to lead them gives an almost unlimited amount of replay value for the lone wargamer.

    This series is suffering from terminal welschmertz. Time to put this warhorse out to pasture. [Dec 2000, p.167]

    I found this game extremely easy to turn off.
  7. The novice faces a hefty learning curve, even with the well-written tutorial in the manual, and many will give up within the first few hours.
