    There's nothing else to touch it in terms of mixing strategy and action, making this another satisfyingly-tough tactical challenge for anyone tired of predictable war-based gun-and-runners. [Apr 2006, p.70]
  2. 80
    The multiple teams, added tanks, verticality, precision fire, the stepped-up AI, and the much-needed multiplayer modes are all smart, value-added features. The game doesn't, however, advance much once you get going.
  3. 80
    The difficulty level may have been cranked up a little too high for the average gamer to enjoy the single-player experience, but the robust multiplayer component of the game helps to make up for it.
  4. Ten Hammers is as close as a game has come to representing the genuine battlefield experience. It may have more strategy than you bargained for but damn, it's painfully addictive.

    Entertaining and absorbing. This is an intelligent, testing mix of action and strategy spoilt only by its motor-mouthed characters. [May 2006, p.86]
  6. Pelit (Finland)
    80
    A slow-paced and an extremely difficult tactical action game that will appeal to people who like a good game of chess. The PS2 version has been done sufficiently well, too, even if it does look a tad ugly. [Sept 2006]
  7. For the most part they offered multiple new ways to approach each situation, but I just felt that had the control scheme been adjusted to reflect these new changes, this game could’ve been much better.
  8. The strategy elements and the point-and-click system bog the action down in this game.
