  Prisoner of War
The installation went smoothly and the game was ready to go. It took me a little bit of time to get used to the controls for walking, running and crouching as well as climbing over fences and walls. After a while it seemed second nature and the game moved relatively fast.

As in many adventure games, you need to find things such as money and trading goods in this one and that was easy enough. The hardest part of the game was the time constraints because you are in a POW camp and there are inspections twice a day and you need to be there. You need to sneak around with soldiers everywhere and that is not very easy.

Unfortunately, the soldier’s voice when you get caught sounds like one of the voices out of an old comedy like Stalag 13 from years ago with Colonel Klink. That is kind of funny. The graphics are a bit blocky and certainly not as detailed and colorful as most adventure games but will suffice for this type of a game. I did find it annoying that there are no commands to grab things. You simply have to walk up to something and you automatically have it. To me that should have been worked on.

Conversations a limited and unless you move on to the next mission, the conversations simply repeat themselves. Overall the game can be fun and could last you for quite a few hours of entertainment.
