Has Anyone Played Prisoner of War on XBOX?

I have been debating whether I should get POW. So far, I haven't been able to find any reviews. Has anyone played it?

Looks like it has an average score (based on 4 reviews so far) on Gamerankings.com of 65%. Here's the link:

I picked it up yesterday and played for a couple of hours. I'll get it out the way, the graphics aren't going to immerse you into the world. But if your like me I like great graphics but I don't judge a game by the graphics. The gameplay is great. I personally enjoy trying to accomplish the missions without worrying about picking up health and ammo. Don't get me wrong, I love my FPS but this is a challenging break from my usual. IF you can get past having no weapons and enjoy picking up a game with simple controls and so far a decent story then it is a keeper. Like I said before though I have only played it for a couple of hours but plan to play alot more tonite.

Here's what IGN's review says.

Presentation 8.0
The funny German helmets and great dialogue lets this game split the difference between Hogan's Heroes and The Great Escape.

Graphics 6.0
A little choppiness combined with poor animation and flat characters means the Xbox isn't being used properly.

Sound 9.0
Best part of the game. The sound effects and extremely well produced and well applied music give POW a lot of cinematic appeal.

Gameplay 7.0
A nonviolent, thinking man's game that suffers from an unfriendly camera system and too many cheesy ways to success.

Lasting Appeal 6.0
A lot more linear than it looks since there's only one objective that can be completed at a time.

OVERALL SCORE (not an average) 6.9
