I was amazed: me, a war games hater loving a war game. It must be special and it is. The combination of the most tense and atmospheric screens yet seen on the 64 with a simple to use, yet complex war game is stunning. Although the game is controversial it in fact makes clear the horrors of a nuclear conflict. The graphic details of the outcome of a nuclear war in Europe was a far cry from the 'blast the Commies' tone of other games.
At it's new knock down price, Theatre Europe is a gift. It comes frighteningly close to predicting the future for Europe should the unthinkable happen.
Die Graphicen sind herrlich, der Sound gut: „Give Peace a Chance“ ertönt. (Die Meinungen über das Spiel gingen in der ASM-Redaktion weit auseinander; Chefredakteur Manfred Kleimann konnte die zynische „Musikbeigabe“ von John Lennon's Hit nur als äußerst geschmacklos bezeichnen. Das Spiel ist aber dennoch brillant – hoffentlich erleidet es nicht das gleiche „Schicksal“ wie RAID OVER MOSCOW!
A US-Soviet confrontation in Central Europe;
rendered obsolescent by historical events and
TE tries to be two very different
games. As an arcade game, the "action
screens" simply don't measure
up. As a strategy game, TE uses all
the right jargon, but a simplistic
design and lack of a two player option
make for a game that is barely introductory
level. TE does a credible job
of demonstrating the perils of escalation
and dramatizing how slippery the
slope to nuclear war might be, but is
basically a game in search of a market.
