PC Gear: Steel Soldiers Impressions
Posted: May 2001

PC Gear gave Z: Steel Soldiers 9/10 in itís May 2001 issue.

    War is a messy old business. Lice, rats, gangrene and death are a soldiers' closest companions in the front line and, whie it seems that more and more strategy games aim to achieve an unprecendented level of gritty realism, this can so often be at the cost of what should - in computer game terms at least - be a fun way of passing the time...

    For once, a strategy game that everyone can play...

    Verdict: Simple ideas, superbly executed.
