    The immense depth of strategic planning and historical accuracy combine for an intensely addictive experience.

    Anyone playing P.T.O. IV is much less interested in graphics than gameplay, and P.T.O. IV delivers heapin' helpings of the latter.

    The battle scenes themselves can be bland, but fledgling commanders will have no trouble grabbing this game's reigns of power. [Mar 2003, p.83]
  4. The AI is good, and while not flawless, provides a decent backup when things get a little heavy and will present a good challenge for even you veteran strategy players out there.
