"...While the game may not
appeal to players who prefer action-packed shooters, those of you who like
sneaking, crawling, wall-climbing, camouflage, and creeping about German POW
camps in the middle of the night, will get a kick out of this one..."
"To put it briefly, Prisoner of War is a very good 3rd
person sneaker filled with action, suspense, and with enough missions to hold
you attention for several days. The game requires you to burn a few brain
cells, by utilizing Stone's skills the best possible way in order to escape
from a camp. I even considered it a bit TOO hard on a couple of occasions.
There are a few visual drawbacks and some control issues that take some getting
use to, but all of that shouldn't really stop you from experiencing this decent
