Despite the more familiar history, Liberty or Death is still probably foreign fare for most gamers. The huge amount of detail makes these absorbing simulations an acquired taste. But don't dump this cart into the harbor, you might just find it a revolutionary change of pace.

All in all, this isn’t a bad little strategy game. It is pretty cool to see a Revolutionary War sim, and the subject matter is far more graspable to most gamers than Romance of the Three Kingdoms or Nobunaga’s Ambition. It’s also a lot easier to pick up and figure out than either of those two series. It even handles fairly well for a PC game that was ported to a console. If you like history or strategy, this one’s worth checking out, just be warned that there is a lot of reading involved and much like the real American Revolution, it takes some serious time and effort.
Since most players in these parts know about U.S. history than that of Japan or China, Liberty or Death appeals more to strategy fans than those titles. But folks not used to the nature of RPGs and strategy games may revolt when they discover that this requires much time and work to make too little progress.

Koei is becoming the master of the historical strategy games. This is a game for players who like slower games other than your run-of-the-mill action titles. If you liked the Genghis Khan games, you'll like this one.
Zwar nutzt sich das Spielsystem im Laufe der Zeit doch etwas ab, dennoch sollte man wenigstens eines dieser nur als Import erhältlichen Geschichtssimulationen genauer unter die Lupe genommen haben.

My sharpest criticism concerns the speed of the gameplay, or rather lack thereof. Attempting to complete your goals when dominating the map can be quite a drag; often this occurs at a snail's pace. The realism, accuracy of real events and flexibility are the high points, while the graphics, sounds, and pace leave something to be desired.
