    But if you can see past the façade and look directly into what really makes this game tick, you'll soon discover that there's a scant few with this much depth and functionality.
  2. With many hundreds of officers to meet, totally open-ended gameplay and ten scenarios to experience, this may be the best and longest lasting game you've ever bought.
  3. The upgraded graphical presentation and more RPG-like aspect of upgrading characters and abilities really puts it over the top. [August 2002, p.22]

    A deep and time-consuming game. It isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s fun in a unique sort of way.
  5. It gets very, very dry. An acquired taste to say the least. [August 2002, p.78]
  6. I tried to warm-up to "ROTK VII" but, as soon as I finish this review, I'll do my darnest to forget it ever existed.
  7. The big problem is that none of the tasks are that engaging, and are made less so by the graphics. [Sept 2002, p.118]
