Computer and Video Games Reviews the Art of War
Posted @ 8:50 PM || TNK

Computer and Video Games has done a review of the Art of War. From the review:

Although it may not offer an answer to all your Cossacks woes, simply because at the end of the day you're playing within the constraints of the game against a computer with limited AI and not a free-acting, free-thinking human, The Art Of War is still a solid, comprehensive follow up to a great game.


The reviewer gave the expansion pack a 83/100.

the immersive elements of a role-playing game with over-the-top intensity and
non-stop action. "Dungeon Siege" plunges you into a continuous 3-D fantasy
