The Perfect General reviews

PC - Issue 8 (1992): "Like all war games, Perfect General could be criticised for sanitising the whole process of war and making players look at it in terms of statistics rather than loss of life and destruction. It's a fair comment, but most games involve or imply some form of violence. Perfect General is not the sort of game which will give anybody instant gratification, it needs some work. Taking time to read the manual and learning how to play the game properly will eventually yield rewards however. A quick start guide does ease the burden somewhat, but it only introduces the player to the mechanics of the game, tactics is something you will have to learn for yourself. Neither will the any of the game's presentation provide any instant thrills. Graphics and sound are both purely functional rather than decorative. If Perfect General can be criticised it is only in respect of the longevity of the game. The 13 scenarios may be enough to keep the casual gamer happy, but they are unlikely to keep the dedicated wargame aficionado occupied for too long. There is a, however, a very strong possibility of additional scenarios being available in the not distant future."

    I have the reactions of a tranquillised sloth and this turn based war game suited me down to the ground. Great slow fun.
