  1. For sheer value for your gaming dollar, there's absolutely no way you're going to top Dai Senryaku VII: Modern Military Tactics, period. For the potential of hundreds of hours of gameplay, at a mere twenty dollars it's such a fantastic bargain that even if you don't think you'd be interested in turn-based strategy, you won't be hurting in the pocket if you give this one a try.

    You are not going to find a better game for $20.
  3. This is a complex, complicated turn-based wargame featuring literally hundreds of authentic modern military units, as well as a big campaign, dozens of stand-alone scenarios, and a full-fledged map editor.
  4. It's daunting at first, but it'll make you an instant West Point graduate once it all clicks (there's even a map editor for the ambitious). [March 2005, p.137]
  5. If you're an armchair general, it's hard to imagine a more appealing game on your Xbox than this. [Feb 2005, p.76]
  6. 80
    It would have been nice if the developer and Microsoft could have come up with some way to play via e-mail (or some other delayed method), but considering the price, there isn't much to complain about in Dai Senryaku VII.
  7. Where's the online play Kemco? We are definitely left wanting in that respect to this game. What a perfect genre to play on Live but for some reason developers left it out.
  8. If its a well-conceived tactical strategy game that you crave then Dai Senryaka VII will definitely be right up your alley. Sure it's a bit complex and it can get frustratingly hard at times but for those looking for a real challenge in this particular genre will find this one highly enjoyable.
  9. Visually, it recalls the graphical prowess of a Super Nintendo title, while the game's total lack of system link and Xbox Live multiplayer flies in the face of Xbox doctrine. [Jan 2005, p.88]
  10. The game may have quite a steep learning curve to overcome, which may turn away a handful of potential fans, but those that are able to work beyond the game's initial challenges may find themselves quickly hooked on a style of gameplay that stimulates the mind rather than the senses.
  11. 58
    If the complicated gameplay doesn't deter most people, the horrendous graphics and sound are certainly not going to win any fans.

    Great game here gamers. Its just that...a game. Like a board game without being bored. Move your units, resupply them with fuel. Bring in your reinforcements, take out the enemy defences, capture the cities. Massive gameplay with huge 23 missions on single player and over 50+ additional multiplayer maps which you can play against a computer if your friends dont have the patience to learn this beauty. Ignore the lack of graphics and repetitive sound effects this isnt that sort of a game. It has a few battle scene animations which do the job but as you get into the game you generally by pass them with a press of a button anyway. Its the result of the battle where the excitement is. Buy this game, you'll be hooked. Anihilate your enemy. Full Review »

    An excellent game that reminds me of The Perfect General PC game. Best when played with friends. Better graphics and xbox live or system link play would have raised my score a point or two. Full Review »

    A Kick *ss turn based strategy game. I have been addicted for months now. If you like the board s like Risk or Advance wars this game is for you. There are some negatives though however the game play over comes them. THey are: the Music is repetative, steep learing curve, Graphics stink and no on-line capibility. THe best $20 game that I have bought. Full Review »
