An impressive feat!, April 2, 2021
by Rovarsson (Belgium)

The width of the map and the depth of implementation are awe-inspiring.
Only War relies on the strengths of the parser-IF medium to produce an experience that no other medium, no matter how strong its graphics interface or how numerous its pages of static text, could deliver.

The old-school adage holds strong with this epic work: the best graphic engine is the human imagination!

This game also has a masterful technical ace up its sleeve in the handling of containers and contents.
Revealing too much would spoil the surprise and the imaginative journey for other players. Suffice it to say that I was baffled when I found out how deep this game actually went.
