Computer Gaming World in 1993 stated that Clash of Steel was reminiscent of Hitler's War and "a gamer's game—quick-playing, entertaining and reasonably accurate. An entire campaign ... can be played in as few as six hours". It concluded that "COS should not be missed." A survey of wargames by the magazine gave Clash of Steel four-plus stars out of five, calling it "strategic and eminently playable ... everything that Storm Across Europe should have been and wasn't".
