Star General review

Computer Gaming World (1997): "All of this is a puzzle, given that SSI designers generally know why their series games are successful. Somehow, the development of STAR GENERAL left it bereft of the attractive elements of the GENERAL line, with naught but a slick and meaningless operational space wargame in its place. If you feel a burning desire to fight endless space battles with relatively little thought, STAR GENERAL is for you. Otherwise, I suggest dividing your time between MOO 2 and a dusted off version of PANZER GENERAL, which remains the strongest game in the series."
