NZGamer: I have had the privilege of reviewing many historically-based games. Some of them were very good; some should have been consigned to history before they hit the shelves. What is common to them all is that they profess to be historically accurate.
I know that when I first started reviewing games, I would take delight in trying to establish how historically accurate they in fact were. Many a happy night was spent poring over a game in the hope of finding a detail that either failed to appear or was in my eyes fundamentally wrong. However, age has now taught me that, just like the truth, there are many versions of history… and the only real truth is that each is correct in the eyes of the writer.
