Het spel is meer dan zomaar een RTS kloon, doordat het ook een aantal sim elementen kent, en da's leuk. Wat minder leuk is, is da je het speelveld recht van boven ziet en je units erg klein zijn. Hierdoor krijgt het spel een iets te hoog Madurodam-karakter.

To liven things up - a fraction - you can play head-to-head via modem or serial link, or with up to four players over the Internet. In this mode, Fields Of Fire shrugs off any pretence at being an RPG and turns into a mildly amusing strategy game where each player sneaks around one of the 20-odd maps, peering through the fog of war and trying to spring surprises and traps on the other player. It's a good way to spend an hour or two, but no more...

War Along the Mohawk consists of a lot of good and ambitious ideas thrown into a melting pot and mixed haphazardly. It has potential, but it is lost in the bland graphics, odd combat resolution, and dreariness of moving from one map to the other at a snail's pace. With an initial price of only $20 one cannot expect too much out of a game, but War Along the Mohawk could have been worth so much more.

I can safely say that this is a game that I would have been very disappointed with had I have gone out and spent $50 on it. But the game cost only $20, which is what it's worth. War Along the Mohawk is a good idea gone due south, way south.

I had pretty high hopes for War Along the Mohawk, but the game just doesn’t live up to the concept. If you’re an elementary school teacher looking for a program to supplement an American history lesson plan, then I might recommend it, but the game is intended to be just that — a game — and it tends to be more tedious than entertaining.

Schon wieder ein Vertreter der Kategorie »Das hätte was werden können«. Fields of Fire enthält viele nette Ideen, die leider der schludrigen Technik und mäßigen Optik zum Opfer fallen. Ein Beispiel: Die zu überrumpelnde Feind- Patrouille macht gar keine Anstalten, sich zu bewegen – meine umsichtig angelegten Fallen und Barrikaden sind für die Katz, und die Gegner eröffnen hellsichtig das Feuer auf meine getarnten Leute. Solche Mängel machen Fields of Fire zwar nicht frustrierend, aber anspruchslos. Als simple Unterhaltung für zwischendurch mag es trotzdem taugen.

Zugegeben, nette Ideen wie die Charakterentwicklung und das originelle Szenario sind durchaus vorhanden. Leider wirkt die Umsetzung nicht gerade zeitgemäß und schreckt nicht nur durch die schlichte Optik ab. So sind die Missionen trotz der Rollenspiel-Elemente wenig reizvoll und beschränken sich oft auf die Suche nach dem Feind.

The single-player mode has some elements of an RPG but is nowhere close to X-COM or JAGGED ALLIANCE. The gameplay is like a bad adventure game in which the too-linear missions must be done in exact order. In MOHAWK you must divine whatever trick the designer intended you to perform: swimming past a sentry finding an NPC with a special skill, or obtaining a needed object like a key. Until you discover it. expect to restart over and over. Native and imported Americans (and Canadians) deserve better than being trapped in such an endless loop of bad history and bad gameplay.
