If you're the sort who's puzzled by Stratego or Battleship, I'd steer clear. Hardcore wargamers however, look no farther - it's not the Holy Grail, but it'll do.

P.T.O. II är mycket väl genomarbetat och kan köras under både Windows 3.1 och 95. Först blev jag besviken över den tunna manualen på bara 28 sidor. Den är emellertid bara en avsedd som snabbreferens. Den huvudsakliga informationen finns under en mycket genomarbetad hjälpmeny enligt normal Windows-standard. Hela spelet ger ett gediget och logiskt intryck och är väl genomtänkt. Visserligen är en del av animationerna något arkad-lika men de går ju att stänga av. Spelmässigt är det ett mycket bra spel om en intressant krigsskådeplats under andra världskriget.

PTO II is very complex and in-depth war simulator. Unfortunately, for those of us out there looking for some simple fun, PTO II represents nothing but a headache. Even I, a lover of Civilization and R3K, can't help but feel bogged down by PTO II's overkill in the realism department. Unless you are ready to take on the role of Naval Commander and all of it's little annoyances, don't bother with this game, it's too damn complicated.

Koei is synonymous with quality, historical sims. So what's with the "6"? PTO II is chock-full of stats, historical records and things to do, but that's just it: there's too much. You get so bogged down in every minute detail, that the big picture and the enjoyment, get lost in the soup. If you are heavy into sims, this will be paradise, otherwise, stick with Koei's other stuff: too much is going on here.

They say wars are won by generals and accountants. Koei certainly took that to heart.

The 32-bit systems haven't had much in the way of wartime strategy games, but Koei hopes to correct that situation with P.T.O. II for the Saturn. P.T.O. II, which stands for Pacific Theater of Operations, is a text-heavy strategy game where players are responsible for the outcome of various World War II battles and operations, and ultimately the war itself. In other words, P.T.O. II is geared toward those who prefer a long game of Risk, versus the quick-fix death and destruction of, for example, Command & Conquer.
