In the tradition of prison-escape flicks (The Great Escape, Chicken Run, etc.) comes a twist on the WWII-themed games that are the current rage. As pilot Lewis Stone, you must work with a cast of fellow POWs, evade Nazis, and bust out of the stalag. With an emphasis on stealth rather than violence (Stone can’t kill or be killed), POW is original and sometimes compelling gaming. But console gamers may find its weak graphics and extreme slowness torturous. POW is a decent rental that lets players make like Colonel Hogan, putting it up there with other escapist fare.
