At one time I owned PG1, Allied General, Pacific General, PG2, People's General and PG3d. All of them became unplayable as I upgraded my computer. I recently purchased a new version of PG2 for Windows 10 and remembered how much I love the PG series. So now I'm intrigued by Panzer Corps. My question is which version should I purchase - plain vanilla PC? One of the stand-alone expansions? PC Gold? Wait for PC 2 (might be a long wait)?

I'd appreciate the advice.

I've played Panzer Corps since it first came out and I still do. It's a great game, and I don't think you can go far wrong buying the Gold Edition, which contains all of the expansions.

Hope this helps.

I have been playing it since it came out. I play over ten hours a week and get the Gold. I love this game and I just love obliterating units, just fun, plus you can take your time. Like now, I have a 10.5 artillery piece with a range of four hexes. I protect this unit closely.

Great games plus mods

I have a related question, and a delicate one as well somehow;

a few months ago i purchased, and played a lot, Order of Battle;

because of the recent sale campaign of Slitherine, I noticed the existence of Panzer corps;

having thus watched some gameplay from youtube, I wonder and share with you community, what the difference between this and Order of Battle;

clearly they are both similar (thus one could ask himself, why did the reciprocal teams develop two games that similar), with exactly the very same scope and derived from Panzer/Allied General series;

sincerely, from what I see, Panzer Corps looks nicer (to me), in terms of interface;

any of your thoughts?

I eventually purchased Panzer Corps and Allied Corps and Soviet Corps. They are all fantastic titles.

I tried out Order of Battle but didn't like it as well. The graphics are nice but the units are too small and get lost in the background. It's a more complicated game in general and doesn't have the ease of play of Panzer Corps. If you really like Order of Battle you might find Panzer Corps to be too simplistic.

In Order of Battle WWII, there are different graphic options to better see the units :

(Zoom max + Player colours Unit Accenting Glow + Large unit scale)
