  1. Despite the fact that this looks like a PS2 game and has come control and camera issues, the story (and the execution of it) are stellar.
  2. While it’s certainly no substitute for a good history book, the game is usually executed, in both its setting and its gameplay, in a fairly believable fashion.
  3. The prison camps are all highly detailed and full of things for you to find, figuring out the breakout is fun, some of the scrapes you get into with the guards are a laugh and, if you can handle the sheer frustration of getting constantly caught, you’ll find an in-depth and interesting adventure. But we do rather feel it could have been much better.

    Console gamers may find its weak graphics and extreme slowness torturous. [20 Sept 2002]
  5. Painstaking detail and suspenseful play make this a thinking sofa slug’s delight, though the deliberate pace might frustrate action fans.

    Easily the biggest problem with the game is the lack of interaction with the game's environment. [Oct 2002, p.102]
