A quick review for a quick game...

"The Great Escape" is based on the classic Steve McQueen film of the same title. I am sad and a little embarassed to say I have never seen "The Great Escape", so I can't compare the film with the game. I can tell you "The Great Escape" is a quick little game which both Jeremy and I thoroughly enjoyed. Of course, remember, we may have been the only two people in the world who loved Prisoner of War, which was Codemaster's attempt at the same genre of game. The two games are strikingly similar at the beginning. You use stealth to work your way through various POW camps, sneaking around, collecting items to make your escape a reality. Many people found POW to be boring, and those that did will definitely find "The Great Escape" to be boring also. We, however, thoroughly enjoy stealth games. We love making practice runs to see where the guards are, or studying the pattern of the spotlights, all so we can put it all together for one perfect run. Some people want more action. To us, these are simply really good puzzle games.

Some reviewers are saying this game is better than POW and has more action in it because you can pick up guns along the way and use them against the Nazis. It's true, you can use guns, but it's so rare, not much of a difference is truly made. We did, however, enjoy the ability to drive automobiles and even a motorbike in a few of our missions. Very cool.

The graphics for this game were great. They completely did the job, and then some. Controls were completely comfortable, and you have several controller options to select the one that fits you best. If I had to say anything bad about the game, I'd say the AI is pretty much non-existant and when it's there, it's inconsistant. I could be standing in front of a guard and not be seen, yet, I could also be a hundred feet away, crouched and still in the shadows, and be spotted. Odd.

If nothing else, "The Great Escape" is a terrific rental. If you committed a little time to it, you could easily complete the game in a single rental period and have a lot of fun doing it. I, on the other hand, will be renting the movie next.
