Can You Help Captain Stone Escape ?

While on a top secret reconnaissance mission for Allied intelligence flying high above northern Germany Captain Stone and his co-pilot Lieutenant James Daly are hit by anti-aircraft fire. Bailing out just in time, Stone parachutes straight into the hands of armed German soldiers. Out numbered and out gunned, Stone is forced to surrender himself to captivity in a POW camp.

On the night of the escape disaster ensues, Daly is shot dead and Stone is re-captured and placed in an even higher security camp. Seeking immediate escape and revenge for his fallen comrade Stone contacts the escape committee, a secret group of high ranking POW's who represent Stone's only hope for freedom. When Stone stumbles across the Germans plans for a weapon of mass destruction, he makes it his duty to inform the Allies and destroy it at all costs; the outcome of the war rests in his hands.

Features:

Heroic player role Hitler's top scientists are working on a new secret weapon which could win them the war - and only you can stop them.

Total immersion Explore three meticulously modeled, fully-3D, historically realistic prisoner of war camps including the infamous Colditz Castle - rich, detail-packed environments brought to life with outstanding lighting, weather and other graphical effects.

Exceptional AI The immersive game world is made even more vivid by an exceptionally high level of Artificial Intelligence in its population. Sophisticated detection, flocking, socialisation and other artificial life algorithms work together to create a living, breathing world of distinctively-characterized inmates and guards.

An easy-to-control player-character, with a wide variety of capabilities Uniquely resourceful, your character is able to talk to anyone they meet, pick up and drop objects, climb fences and walls, crouch, crawl, mantle along ledges, peek around corners, tap on walls to distract guards, throw stones, use a telescope, and perform a wide variety of special actions with particular objects. An intelligent "context-sensitive" action button system ensures maximum control intuitiveness at all times.

High degree of replayability It's possible to replay any completed level, and aim to beat recorded escape times in order to earn new abilities. This substantially increases the longevity of the game.

Reviews:

ActionTrip by Ure "Vader" Paul

"...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 action/adventure game."
