1UP (A)

If there's any downside to Pathway to Glory, it would be that the difficulty level might be set a tad too high for some players. Still, Red Lynx has graced the N-Gage with a jewel of a game. Pathway to Glory is an exceptional mobile gaming experience that demonstrates the developer's serious attention to all aspects of game design. It's a must have, not to be missed, N-Gage game for any fans of the action-strategy genre.

PC Action (Germany) (1 out of 7)

(...) Wer dieses Spiel verschmäht, verpasst einen Handheld-Meilenstein. Von der perfekten Steuerung bis zum Mördersound sitzt alles. Sie kommandieren eine fünf bis acht Mann starke Einheit der Alliierten im Kampf gegen die Nazis. Alle Taten Ihrer Soldaten kosten Aktionspunkte. Schießen oder rennen lautet oft die Frage. Bei den 14 Karten hocken Sie auch wegen des teilweise knackigen Schwierigkeitsgrades schnell ein bis zwei Stunden an einem Level - freiwillig. Zudem bietet der Mehrspieler-Modus von Hot-Seat bis Sechs-Spieler-Online-Duellen alles, was das Herz begehrt. (...)

Gaming Target (9.1 out of 10)

Pathway to Glory plays a lot like a game of chess and it's historically accurate, two qualities that might make some people cringe, but if you are looking for a game that makes you think, this game is certainly for you. The meaty solo campaign, multiple ways of accessing multiplayer, the exciting World War II setting and gameplay variety give this game more than enough to be considered a worthy purchase. So don't be fooled by the history and chess references because this is one strategy game that shouldn't be overlooked.

The Next Level (USA) ( )

This game has been billed by Nokia as being one of the best examples of what the N-Gage is capable of, and it is. The music is very strong, and is perhaps among the best handheld soundtracks of the year. Graphically, this game looks better than a PSone game. The sprites are very detailed and the environments and the attention paid to the minute details is astounding. The truth here is that if this were released on any other handheld, people would be lining up to buy it. It’s about time everyone got off of Nokia’s back and went back to being truly objective. The system deserves it and with quality releases like this, King of Fighters, and Requiem of Hell, it’s time to take it a bit more seriously. Nokia isn’t playing around. The bottom line here is that if you’re a fan of Military Madness, Third World War, or Iron Storm, there's nothing here that will remotely disappoint you.

Digital Press - Classic Video Games (9 out of 10)

Pathway to Glory becomes a rare N-Gage title that does everything right. It looks great, has fantastic production values, offers a unique (and exclusive) gameplay experience, and wraps it up in a wonderful design. Anyone should be able to appreciate the intricate gameplay, turn-based fan or not.

All About N-Gage (90 out of 100)

All of Nokia's hype makes it hard to have a clear view on this game on how good Pathway to Glory really is. Just because it is the best N-Gage game so far doesn't mean it's an automatic Mega Game. Reviews come down to personal opinion. When I saw the demo back in the summer, I was on the phone proclaiming the simple joy that this is "Rebelstar" done perfectly. And remembering that first experience of the game really makes me want to give it the Mega Game award. Technically, the game is unlike anything on any mobile gaming device. Graphically it's at the edge of the envelope, but everything stays clear and understandable. Addiction levels keep me coming back to it. The Arena games are growing on me. Pathway to Glory is a winner.

Thunderbolt Games (9 out of 10)

As Nokia's only real first party developed N-Gage game, Pathway to Glory has had a lot to live up to. Touted by many as the game that will really make a difference, it's been subject of much hype and anticipation. The resulting game is superb, a real all-round package. Yet I fear that its release may be too little, too late. As a DS or PSP release, people would be jumping up and down for it, but as a late N-Gage arrival, many will dismiss or ignore it. However, if more games of the same quality are around the corner, then we could just see one of the biggest comebacks in gaming history.

Yes, I know I get paid to talk about N-Gage, so some may think that makes me biased (they obviously haven't read my several sub-2-star reviews). But a great game is a great game is a great game, and Pathway to Glory is definitely a great game -- arguably one of the best in the entire genre! This is coming from someone who's played basically every tactical RPG released since Military Madness on the Turbografx-16. Nokia is finally bringing out titles for N-Gage that gamers want to play. Give the handheld a second look, and I promise you'll be pleasantly surprised. Side-talkin' is gone; battery removal for game-changing is gone. All that's left is a pretty powerful little device that is starting to get some kick-ass games.

GameZone (8.9 out of 10)

It's great to see a killer-app exclusively on the N-Gage, but I can't help but think how amazing a PSP version would be. When you play it you'll feel the same way. This highly addictive strategy game crams more strategic, mind-crunching goodness into one tiny package than most strategy games combined (excluding Advance Wars and Fire Emblem, of course). Once you get N-Gaged, you won't want to put it down.

Pathway to Glory zeigt endlich einmal was für ein Potenzial im N-Gage steckt! Angefangen von der phänomenalen Präsentation, über das nahezu perfekte Gameplay bis hin zu einem Umfang, der im Handheldbereich seines Gleichen sucht - hier stimmt einfach alles. Es ist einfach unglaublich motivierend, sich mit seinem Squad Häuserecke um Häuserecke taktisch vorzukämpfen. Wie platziere ich meine Männer richtig? Riskiere ich noch einen teueren Schuss, oder spare ich meine Aktionspunkte für einen möglichen Gegenschlag? Wie breche ich zu meinem Verwundeten Kameraden durch und wo zur Hölle kommt auf einmal dieser Panzer her? Für mich das ambitionierteste N-Gage Projekt bislang, Rundenstrategie vom Feinsten - zugreifen!

Nokia avait raison de miser sur Pathway To Glory puisqu'on tient là l'un des meilleurs softs de sa machine. Un genre peu représenté sur portable et servi avec brio par un gameplay qui fonctionne et une réalisation soignée, mais pour une cible de joueurs avertis cependant.

GamersHell.com (8.5 out of 10)

Hands down this is the best game for the N-Gage. The graphics are the best compared to the other games which look absolutely horrid in some cases. A perfect example of a good game gone bad is Call of Duty, but that’s another story for another day.

Consoles Plus (17 out of 20)

L'IA est magnifique, les missions variées. Face aux tanks, on est à fond dans le jeu et jamais l'écran de la console n'aura offert plus beau spectacle. Mais le mieux, c'est le jeu en ligne : coop ou face à face en Bluetooth, en équipe via N-Gage Arena. Et on peut même se parler entre les tours ! Une T-U-E-R-I-E !

GameSpot (8.1 out of 10)

While the promise of true online play remains somewhat unfulfilled, Pathway to Glory is still a compelling turn-based strategy offering. With any luck, Nokia will work out the kinks and make the game playable over GPRS. However, even without the feature, there's great action here.
