Reviews:

ActionTrip by Uros Jojic

"The third sequel of Talon Soft’s "Campaign" serial proves that not all has been said about the second world war and that the frequently used time period from 1939 to 1945 still has much to offer to the gaming industry. The serial first concentrated on the eastern front, and then continued westwards to bring us finally to the far east (or far west as some would call it). Apart from entertaining strategy fans, Rising Sun shows us that the WWII did not only hold Europe in its clutches, it also caught all other continents..."

"Apart from the 40 single player and multiplayer scenarios there are also 7 campaigns for one player: three dynamic ones where you can choose one of the sides and try to change the course of the war, and four link campaigns with a fixed order of maps and sides you have to play. The dynamic campaigns keep changing mission goals every time you start them. You can multiply the number of missions with five, because it is possible to play them on different scales, commanding anything from a battalion to a corpse. The first ones will have raiding or scouting missions, while the latter will take control of islands and destroy whole armies."

"The computer is a worthy adversary, he will try hard to pass your frontline units and reach the poorly defended points like HQ or artillery. There are four levels of AI – something for everyone, everything for someone."
