Panzer Corps Gold Initial Review - 1/19/2017 3:42:16 PM

I recently purchased Panzer Corps Gold and am glad I waited to get the whole series for a mere $40 during the holiday sale. As they say patience is a virtue and I love the virtue of a great deal. Perhaps the best deal ever for a computer war game. A lot of extra content as far as campaigns and their scenarios to play. The only minor bug I found was when you move a unit that can be transported by vehicles far enough to trigger mounting up that if you decide to undo the move the unit goes back to it's original hex but doesn't properly revert back to it's dismounted state. Kind of ruins the undo move feature.

The AI, Artificial Ignorance, isn't horrible like Wars of Napoleon or the first Strategic Command but it really isn't that smart. Far too often the AI can be tricked into leaving a good defensive position to take a cheap shot at a perceived expensive unit. I read that recently the Air AI was improved but sadly it's pathetic at focusing on air superiority, wasting too much on playing flying artillery. Sadly the fighters do a poor job of escorting bombers instead of bombing early on so it's bombers never last long. Then I always focus on gaining air supremacy which the Air AI makes all too easy.

I use the Stalingrad scenario to explain game mechanics and other stuff. I love the replay feature as it allows me to quickly show a battle while I comment on the proceedings. I'll be doing other battles as well in the future.

No background music.
