    For those with an interest in the period or the temperament to appreciate its pitched battles, Pike and Shot’s mix of the cerebral and the visceral make it a compelling and unique game, and its range and longevity of content make it an essential purchase.

    The game has strategic depth and lacks the cracks and wrinkles of many of its competitors.

    Pike and Shot is a remarkable strategic title both for his historical depth and for his longevity. Mechanics-wise the game is fun and interesting and with a 30 scenarios-long campaign, a multiplayer mode and a very complete skirmish mode those 20 euros are a fair price.

    Has a very high entry barrier, but beyond it is a unique and compelling fusion of strategy game and history lesson.

    Superficial elements aside, Pike & Shot is a rock-solid simulation of an era of military conflict that is ignored by most developers and publishers.

It's intuitive and easy to jump in, but as soon as you start understanding the rules, it becomes clear there is so much under the hood, it will take you many hours of play to master it. The skirmish mode is only an extra reason to love it, but mastering the existing scenarios is already a huge task that will take a long time. Full Review »
