Game Players (Oct, 1993)
Not quite up to the standards of Koei's other historic simulations, but armchair admirals will get a kick out of this warfare game involving the Pacific Campaign in WWII.
It's decent but not my bag.
On the positive side, P.T.O. is an ambitious design for a 16-bit machine. Players who elect the campaign option are in for a solid 200-300 hours of play time - more than can be had from any other comparatively priced cartridge. Further, no two campaigns play the same; so the actual play value extends beyond these figures to the limit of the player's interest. As stated earlier, this product blurs the traditional distinction between video game and computer programs. It is a welcome loss of vision however, and one will willingly go blind to the stereotypes if P.T.O. establishes a new trend in video gaming.
