Review

Looking more like an old Avalon Hill game than an Xbox exclusive, strategy buffs cannot go wrong with this thrifty title (it retails for under $20) that won't short-change anyone in the mood for a little hex counting. This title puts a premium on knowing the ins-and-outs of every unit on the board in order to attain victory – and each of the game's 400 unit types has a story to tell. It's daunting at first, but it'll make you an instant West Point graduate once it all clicks (there's even a map editor for the ambitious). Apart from the bare-bones presentation and graphics, I struggled at times with building exactly the right units for the situation, but this title's definitely worth taking a chance on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Turn Based Strategy in Modern Combat Attire February 24, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Here is a quick review of this game to let you know what to expect. It's a Turn Based Strategy game (TBS) meaning that each participant in the battle will take turns moving their army around the battle field. Think Chess with MANY more units and MUCH larger maps. Unlike Advance Wars (for the GBA) Dai Senryaku VII is played on a grid of hexagons. This obviously allows you to move your units with more freedom than Advance Wars.

There are over 400 units divided between over 32 classes and 8 countries. The unit types found in the game range from Aircraft like Interceptors, Fighters, and Supply planes (and more) to Main Battle Tanks, Recon Vehicles, SAM units, all kinds of boats including Destroyers, Cruisers, Carriers, and Submarines. The countries included are United States, Japan, Germany, Russia, France, Israel, China, and Russia.

There are 25 Mission Mode (Story) battles to fight and over 100 Free Play Mode maps to choose from. In addition there is a Map Editor that lets you build your own maps up to 64x64 hexes. Each country can have up to 50 units on the map at once (for a total of 200 units in a 4 player game).

The multiplayer options are plentiful in this game. Each country can the allied with other countries. Up to 4 players/computer opponents can play on a map. Any combination of players and computer controlled players using any controllers (1 controller can be shared or multiple controllers can be used). The computer AI can be one of 3 levels: Easy, Medium, and Hard. Everything from Alliances, Fuel, and starting Funds can be changed for a Free Play map.

The game can be very challenging for strategy game beginners. Mission Mode will be pretty easy for those who are very familiar with Strategy Games but Free Mode will keep them happy. The graphics won't impress those who are looking for eye candy but they get the job done in a simple and fast-thinking way.

Hopefully this review was helpful to you. Thanks for reading.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
"Dai Senyraku VII: Modern Military Tactics" is a strategist's game. I'm going to say that before I say anything else. This game is not for the amateur strategist, or someone who isn't interested in a game you may never beat completely. This game has three levels of AI and a huge range of campaign (sort of, there's no plot) and Free Play missions, and even on Easy AI I found the game very unforgiving. Sustained wars in which both sides have a lot of money starting out can grind on for some time- 99 days is the limit for the longest of scenarios. The graphics are also none-too-impressive; while I have seen worse, and what you have here gets the job done, "Dai Senryaku"'s graphics weren't even state of the art in 2004 when it came out. Unimpressive graphics, an unforgiving and relentless AI, and long missions- more than once, I got the feeling that in this game you don't fight battles, but wars. And the learning curve in this game is extremely steep. It hardly tells you anything about anything, seeming to expect you'll figure out how to read all the information it provides on your own. The English is often badly translated, which doesn't help.

At this point you're probably wondering why I haven't returned "Dai Senyraku" to the store already. For a while I wasn't sure myself.

But.

If you stick with this game, if you try to learn and understand its vast range of complexities, you'll find that "Dai Senryaku VII" is a game like no other on the Xbox. Or on the 360, quite possibly. 400 units to choose from, and the opportunity to play as Britain, France, Germany, the USA, the PRC, Russia, or Israel. The amount of detail available is all but unlimited, and the possibilities truly are endless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Military Tactics not for the weak November 10, 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an in-depth war gaming experience with a very steep learning curve. I actually had to do research onlne to ensure the right weapon PACs during game play. This is one of the best high level attempts at a "Squad Leader" level of game play I've enjoyed since "Advanced Wars 2". (AW2 is 1/8 the effort compared to Dia Senryaku). If you no longer have your group of "Squad Leader" buddies, this can and will fulfill your need for detailed war gaming. This game takes time to learn, is extremely addictive, but requires a significant head-space/user/time commitment. Low purchace price is a bonus - not for the casual gamer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Strategy - but Could be Better September 30, 2006
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Dai Senryaku 7 is an old school strategy game, complete with a hexagonal grid map and units to move around the board.

Despite the fully 3D intro sequence, once you get into the gameplay it's all flat. You have a seutp screen with very simple graphics, to choose sides and options. Once you're in actual gameplay, you can "zoom" above the map, but you're just getting a sideways view on the gameboard.

This is similar to Advance Wars. There are different levels of units - tanks, recon vehicles, artillery, boats, aircraft and more. Each unit has a move rate, cost to buy, attack capability, ability to see a certain distance, and so on. With 400+ units, a lot of gameplay comes down to really knowing what your options are and choosing the exact units which will be best for your plans. Maybe you want a lot of fast, long-seeing but low damage units ... or maybe you want a few battlehorses of great strength to march towards victory.

The sounds are about as feeble as the graphics. There are a few clicking noises, clacking noises, and a repetitive background song. Still, again it's not about the view or the sound. You could pretty much turn off the sound and play your favorite songs on the stereo while you played. The terrain types are only vaguely hinted at on the hexes ... but that does the job. You know if it's going to be something your tank can cruise across easily or something that will block the way.

While I definitely appreciate the hexes from a battle strategy point of view, they are a royal pain with a joystick that moves in 4, not 6, directions. Also, if you're a fan of plots, you'll be disappointed. You get a RED ARMY!! going up against a BLUE ARMY!! and someone has to win.
