Quoted from Rising Sun Reviews:Check out these quotes from Rising Sun reviews & previews
"Rising Sun takes what was a good wargaming series and makes it a superb one. With the addition of the complete orders of battle, war simulation strategy is now at the next level of its evolution. Rising Sun gives war gaming connoisseurs and history buffs the opportunity to experience the pacific theater ground war in all its glory. While it doesn't break any new ground in the way of engine mechanics, the additions made to the existing foundation only serve to strengthen its overall appeal. Still consumers should be aware that this isn't a title with broad ranging appeal."
"Rising Sun gets my five-star rating for a one basic reason: It is by far the most in-depth, yet accessible strategy game I've ever played. Yes, I've played other extraordinarily detailed strategy games before, but they've always taken me days or weeks to truly grasp the gameplay. Rising Sun is a dense game that you'll be enjoying in a couple of hours due to a state-of-the-art interface and tutorial. War is not hell in Rising Sun -- it's a pure joy."
"Wargamers have been clamoring for games set in the Pacific during WWII, and now TalonSoft has obliged. Rising Sun is the latest, and probably the last, of the Campaign series that began with East Front and continued with West Front and several add-ons and upgrades."
"Although Rising Sun may be the final entry of the Campaign series and hard core TalonSoft wargames, the series goes out with its head held high. Engrossing gameplay, fine audiovisuals, and a wide range of options that allow new and veteran players to enjoy the game combine to make Rising Sun a fitting coda for TalonSofts serious wargames. Its epic scope and sheer massiveness ensure replayability for months, if not years, to come."
"...you would be advised to steer well clear. "
