Panzer Corps Reviews and Awards

Fans of the old Panzer General series rejoice for the release of Panzer Corps. Following in the footsteps of the popular SSI masterpiece and sharing with the General series the same level of engagement and strategic depth, Panzer Corps will keep an unmistakable "PG feeling" whilst improving and refining the gameplay and balance. Panzer Corps will feature 26 scenarios on 21 unique maps, covering most major battles of the European Theatre of World War II and including a few hypothetical 'what if' scenarios based on your actions. Now expanded with a full-war mega-campaign and the Afrika Corps and Allied Corps releases!

Is the student beating its master here ? Without saying too much about the article to follow, I can definitely say yes
I am here jumping, exploding of joy, even my eyes are crying for the return of an improved masterpiece

Whatafy
All in all, Panzer Corps is an amazing strategy game which can be enjoyed by players of all ages and gaming experience, so even those looking for a casual game as well as the ones that want a highly competitive one can enjoy this unique experience.

Quarter to Three
The first thing I noticed was how easy it is to get back into the routine of scooting the units around and letting the basic numbers do their thing... Before you know it, you're hurtling down the street with the wind in your hair and feeling like a kid again.

Tacticular Cancer
Panzer Corps has hit the nail on the head with graphics and sound, is extremely faithful to the series, with some carefully thought out, solid gameplay changes.

SimHQ
For those that have never played Panzer General and like a "wargame lite" title that can be learned relatively quickly and easily, this is an excellent title.

Gameokratie.de
Panzer Corps is a thoroughly enjoyable game that will give all Hobby Generals great fun. My advice: buy it yourselves now!

Suite 101
Panzer Corps is the perfect introduction for newcomers to wargaming, and also blast to play for those already captivated by the genre. It truly is the 21st Century version of the classic Panzer General series.

No High Scores
Panzer Corps has been such a pleasant surprise as it’s brought back a flood of great memories of nights eschewing college partying in order to try and achieve a major victory in France or to capture Moscow.

Investors-Verlag.de
"Recommendation of the Day"! After work, I'll start a scenario.

No god graphic! Because you miss death animations in the game

Post by Templer_12 »

In the Game Star review will be evaluated in detail with a graphic rating 5 out of 10.
Listed below you will find Cons: no "death animations", units simply disappear.

Whether the lack of death animations had to be mentioned, actually I don't know.

However, I would find it funny, if I would see how the crew of a downed miniature tank, opens the tank valves and climbs out of the burning tank and jump down to escape then.

While trying to escape they would certainly pursue some crew members and mowed them down with machine-gun fire.
The spurting blood of course would give the missing death animations more authenticity.

But for the blood spatter even we would need a microscope.
With magnifying glasses we perhaps can still see the miniature tank crew but not to be visible splashes.

Sometimes you can only shake your head.

Hey-oh! 8/10 on Gamespot.

The twenty users gave it a 9.2 though. I always pay more attention to the users rather than the one reviewer. Especially for this type of game. [:)]

Although I see one of the posters is Ian. Aha! [:D]
