4 out 5 Stars from Computer Games Magazine

Computer Games magazine (September issue) reviewed Uncommon Valor. Tom Chick gave it a 4 out of 5 stars and wrote the following

"There aren't many wargames that model combat on sea, under sea, on land, and in the air. And until now, there weren't any that did it with this smoothly, presenting the sweep of the war in the Pacific with such detail. With Uncommon Valor, 2by3 Games has created what is easily the most polished, intelligent, and satisfying wargame since Combat Mission."
- Tom Chick

About a month old, but I just stumbled upon it and I did not notice it here...

Note that the list is in no particular order (thus UV is on the bottom).

Very weird. The title for the review is 'Uncommon Valor: War In The Pacific, The Struggle Against Japan 1941-1945' and screen shots are I believe from 'War in the Pacific' but the review itself is about 'Uncommon Valor: Campaign for the South Pacific' :confused:

A new UV Review is online at The Wargamer : http://www.wargamer.com/reviews/uncommon%5Fvalour/

Since they already reviewed UV about one year ago, this new review is focused on the changes brought by all the patches

PC Zone here in the UK gave it only 61%. The ar*eholes! From what I gather they didn't get into it because it was too complicated. Guess that's what happens when you give a computer game to a chimp to review...
