To be honest, this game looks and plays very well. It has some the most visualy impressive graphics i've probably ever seen in a free to play game. But while it looks pretty and all, the game's main issue is that it's a straight up a money grubbing play to win game, with a few other minor problems. At first, the match ups are fair and, for the most part, well balanced. Everyone has an equel chance to kill and be killed. Sadly this can only be said about the early matches. After you get settled into the game and you think that things are going to be progressing at fairly a paced rate, like a good game should, you start getting matched up with people that are WAY stonger you simply because they invested some real money into their character. They get an enormous advantage over anyone who didn't pay and ultimatly win. And when they win they win HARD! You'd initially think to yourself "Eh, maybe it won't happen too often" or "its not that bad" to try to make yourself feel better about your horible loss. Then match after match, loss after loss you realize that it's a constant and reaccurring cycle that completely frustrates and irritates you. The only way to even have a remote chance to beat those players are if you happen to have one of those pay to win player on your team or you circum to the pressure and cough up the dough. Either way you get screwed.

Though this next problem might not seem very big, it actually is the very root of the pay to win problem. That honor goes undoubtedly to the dreaded item creation system. This game's creation system is one of the most sneaky and insulting kick to the groin! To create an item you must not only get a bunch of materials that are hard to come by, you must also have a ton of money to then buy the item. In addition to having to buy the items at a ridiculously high price, you also gain a ridiculously low amount of money from battles which makes paying for items a really daunting task. And if you think that they could'nt possibly make it any worse you are sorely mistaken. It then gives you a wait period for your item to made. And this could last for several hours to even days to recive the item you have worked tirelessly to get. The game's creators purposly designed it like this to push players to buy their in-game currency. Sure it rewards the ones that purchased the in-game currency, but they completly neglect and almost punish the players that didn't want to purchase anything and simply wanted to play a good free game. It can be argued that in a buisiness stand point a free to play game has to make some profit somehow. Which is very much true. But they fail to realize that it should be left as an option for the player to choose from without the fear of facing an unfair advantage. Many thriving free to play companies do this, and they have some of the most happy and loyal fanbases along with more than enough money to keep afloat (a good example of that is Team Fortress 2). This creation system takes away what makes the game fun for EVERYONE and just serves as something that stops it from reaching it's full potential.

But of corse, credit has to be given to where credit is due. Despite it being a money grubbing machine the combat is really well done and diverse (this is the potential i was talking about earlier). Each class has their own unique abilities and play styles. They all play smoothly when in combat and each of them have an important role to fill in the team. Wether you're the support or the tank, each one is equally just as vital to achieve victory. The character designs are very unique and interesting enough to keep you entertained. The amount of attention put into the graphics is fenominal! The max graphics settings looks fantastic with the amount of detail put into the characters and battlegrounds. When it comes to gameplay and graphics this game passes with flying colors.

Panzar is one of those games that i personally would not recommend, but if you think that you can get passed all of it's outragous problems or you plan to spend money on this game then go right ahead. play and enjoy this game as much as you possibly can. =)

This game seemed to have a lot going for it. The combat and classes are interesting, the crafting system is a grind but manageable, and it is actually fun to play. However, it has some keyboarding smashing features that just aren't fixable:

1. Long queue times. For a MOBA, you'd expect multiple games to be starting every minute for every level range. That doesn't seem to be the case in this game, with queue times approaching 20 minutes or more for a single game sometimes. And there is little transparency in the matchmaking process, no indication that games are forming, completing, or that players are even queued.

2. Everyone on your team is Russian. They don't understand you, you don't understand them. It makes a team based game very difficult. You may as well remove voice chat, which doesn't really work anyway.

3. Lack of new player information available. The English wiki is unfinished, there is little information on the English forums, there is little information provided in the game, and the tutorial is so uninformative and restrictive that it's a chore just to finish it.

4. Everyone seems to be terrible at this game. I've played less than 10 hours and not past level 5 with a single class and I have topped the board with all of them at least once. How hard is it to stand on the circle? I chalk this one up to the previous two bullet points: lack of communication and in-game help.

Overall, it's a fun game that seems to be failing simply due to a lack of interest from US players. If there were language based games, that alone would solve 3 of the 4 problems I have with this game, but then I'd still be sitting in the queue, waiting to actually play it.

This is unique game with non-target system. To feel how it work you need to try it. No, you MUST try it, cause:
- awesome graphics (CryEngine 3 - sounds good, eh?);
- nice battle mechanics;
- 8 classes;
- lots of maps and game modes;
- cool in-game atmosphere.

Go on, try Panzar!

Don't judge a book by it's cover. Give this game a try!

This game has given me a whole new experience that couldn't be found in other games.
I would rather say this is unique. This game can be run in low quality.. stay smooth and fantastic.

Each characters has it own special abilities and their weakness. And thats what makes individuals to work together as a group instead of on their own to win the battle.
Also, I really like the idea of this game and creative artwork from this game. It makes me enjoy this game even more.

This sort of free to play game is rarely found and I'm glad that I have a chance to play it. Looking forward to the new maps and modes (maybe there will be new classes/ monsters?!) Who knows...

Why did they even reliese this? Once you press "T" that opens social window, you are stuck permanently. You can't close the window with "t" or "X".

Move along citizen! Nothing to see here.

First time to go into this game and the tutorial was pretty cool...It got my hopes up for my first PvP. However I had to wait 12 mins to be matched up...I googled this issue and found that this is really common and gets worse at higher levels...There is no incentive to carry on with Panzar and the fun you can get is limited by time...Do not recommend right now but if server issues and waiting times are fixed, it will definitely buyback a large crowd

for me what's lacking is jumping somewhat the jumping make u slower and the walking speed is like you have broken legs. it's a good game eventhough i play for 1 hour it is good game nonetheless. i stop playing because the movement a bit clanky, the combat was ok i guess.

Ended up soft-locking the game within 30 minutes of "playing" by apparently opening up the Social Menu while dead and was unable to exit the menu.

Oh, and by "playing", I actually mean insta-dying to kamikaze enemies with absurd AoE range.

I just don't even know what to say about this game, but I guess I'm happy I didn't go in with high expectations.

We all know free to play games usually need to make money somewhere. In some games it's cosmetics, in others it's quick access to gear you would normally have to grind for...

That's all well and good until it comes to PvP based games. Then you border on pay to win territory.

Up until recently it wasn't too bad here but recent updates have put it into that territory a lot of us try and avoid.

It used to be an okay game to kill a bit of time in, now it's worth avoiding at all costs.

Can't even say I got a good chance to play this game enough. First game I glitched out, and second game froze up and game crashed. Ok so 3rd time, 3rd party (where no healers actually help you, lucky you get potions) I win and get some exp, oh wait 50% reduction in exp because "I quit 2 times" but really it wasn't my fault.

Graphics are good, game mechanics seems interesting. I like the idea of team based games but... the match making is random (like COD BO2 team death match). Havent seen a healer actually heal, instead run into mobs and die. That and constant confusion and dazed skills the monsters have. It makes the game very frustrating and very time consuming.

I'd consider playing more if there was North american server with people who read and write english. If I give this game another chance ( 5 games all frustrating and annoying), it will be healer class since it seems most healers can solo the map and not help the team? Uninstall final answer.

(had to install game from official website to play, steam version didn't work first time)

A lot of potential - but for now... Sloppy

Initial Thoughts:

This game look great, interface is clean and easy to navigate. Queues are way to long with no real indication that the game is doing anything. I thought my system was slow loading at first but then I realized it was just the game rounding up players. PvP gameplay leaves a lot to be desired. Enemy tags sometimes show up late and since you are playing folks from all around the world there is latency issues. It is kind of chaotic at times. Doesnt feel as if you are doing any damage because there is no significant reaction to a successful hit, a small combat text is shown but it feels soft. A bunch of orcs swinging away on a capture point feels sloppy. If the devs went and played SMITE - copied their queue system and took notice to their combat - this game would be gold. Otherwise, I feel it will just fade away into nothingness.
