Ruses et coups fourrés vous seront plus profitables qu'un affrontement direct avec l'ennemi. Aux onze campagnes proposées s'ajoutent celles que vous pourrez créer vous-même.

La réalisation est d'un bon niveau, exploitant bien les capacités graphiques de la machine et mettant à profit fenêtres et souris. Ce wargame est intéressant et l'ordinateur constitue un bon partenaire.

A tactical rendition of various "battles," this product is an enjoyable game, but any relation to history (or the book of the same title by Sun Tsu) is purely coincidental. Some of the scenarios are unbalanced, but the game is easy to learn and has its own scenario editor/ generator.
