  1. The game's apples-to-apples translation keeps it only good instead of great. I kept wishing the developers had done more to capitalize on the new platform. [Feb 2004, p.81]
  2. It takes the boardgame rules and faithfully translates them to a format that easily allows for greater complexity; however, War!'s simplicity is a large part of what makes it such a blast to play. [Jan 2004, p.69]
  3. Offers a strong strategy game in a convenient package and some features that can only be found in the PC version.
