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.

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.
