This is the 11th isn't that close enough to the middle of the month to RELEASE THIS GAME PLZ? ;) Lol listen to me I've been here what? goin on 5 years and nary a game has impressed me enough to even care when it was released. lol I guess it's been so long since I bought a new release a little frivolous spending now ain't gonna hurt my pocket book none. ;) I've saved so much money over these past years on not buying games upon release and just waiting for bargain bin prices that I could be considered a rich gamer. lol Actually Erik should just give me a copy for promoting it so. ;)

When you go to games on the Matrix website it's there. However when you go to store it's not there.

So. How is this game system compared to Combat Mission?
I always thought the infantry action was the weak spot of the CM series.
Does this handle it better?

Yes everything is better...buy it. ;)  What is going to separate this series from Combat Mission is game generated Campaign games that you never could get out of the CM series without some other modder building it for you. It will come with pregenerated ones and you can create random generated ones. Graphics wise it's not quite up to CM:SF BF's newest CM game, but, big deal if you buy a game as graphics being your first choice you're not much of a wargamer anyways. I can't give much more comment on Kharkov until I play it as to it's challenge and AI difficulty. It's on my order list WHEN ERIK FINALLY DECIDES TO RELEASE IT. lol I buy just about everything with any kind of random battle/map/units generators and most of them pan out to be pretty good. My latest recommendations go to DOMINIONS III being able to play against 61 AI opponents is a blast and very challenging.

How does this differ to the gameplay of Combat Mission?

Hi Orange,

I purchased the game but haven't played it yet because I have other games to play.

I saw a YouTube vid and it looked awesome. It was a little like CM but that's all.

Regards,

Grell

I haven't played all that much CM (Just the AK demo) so my comparison might be a little thin.
PCK starts with giving orders at the platoon level. The order of the platoon is one of about 6-7 general tactical order types (German get one extra type.) So this is a top down command system. You must think in terms 'How am I going to use this platoon?' CM seems to be bottom up. There you give an order to each tank or squad each turn. Thus its seem like you are thinking 'How can I use this tank and still not be penalized from the command rules?'

While orders are given or changed each turn in both games, the turns of PCK are longer (80 seconds as opposed to 60 seconds in CM) but there is a mid turn opportunity to modify the orders. Thus you have to think ahead a bit more in PCK.

Hi folks,

I encourage you to head down to the Panzer Command: Kharkov forum below, where there's a lot more info and discussion going on. Also, check out the older Panzer Command: Winterstorm demo. While Kharkov is a lot better than Winterstorm in many ways (a fairly comprehensive list of improvements is posted in the Kharkov forum), it will still give you a basic idea of how things work.

Regards,

- Erik

There's only one quick teaser so far, check the Kharkov game page or the announcement on the front page. But stay tuned, more videos are coming.
