About This Game

WORLD WAR II: PANZER CLAWS [aka Frontline Attack: War over Europe] pushes back the boundaries of real-time strategy gaming!
Take control of the Allied, German, or the Russian in the harsh reality of the battlefields of World War II. At your disposal are a vast number of vehicles and tanks, as well as ground troops and the ability to call in air forces when needed. All these elements must be used in order to obtain the ultimate prize: Victory!

PANZER CLAWS II: In 1940, France fell beneath the dark tide of war. During the early days of the occupation, the French government capitulated, and formed a collaborationist state. While the country was under enemy control, resistance fighters took to the hills, and back alleys. These brave souls began mobilizing for a fight against their occupiers, and mis-directed government officials.
Panzer Claws II offer the player the choice between one of the four sides in the conflicts: the Germans, the Russians or the Allies and the French Resistance.

Includes both parts: Panzer Claws I + II!

FEATURES:

  • 3D maps enhance the gameplay experience
  • Four campaigns with over 40 missions on the four sides in the conflicts: the Germans, the Russians or the Allies and the French Resistance.
  • True to history, the campaign missions take place in various seasons of the year, greatly affecting your strategies
  • True real-time: night and day will occur during your missions, changing light and visibility
  • 15 extra missions to play in Skirmish mode, 8-player Multiplayer over LAN and EarthNet™
  • The easy-to-use editor allows you to create your own missions to play single-player or multiplayer

This game is amazing, even after a decade of existance. While not very appealing visually, the gameplay is fun and solid. The tanks operate off of an armor basis. As in all but the lightest vehicles cannot be harmed by small arms. Tanks with lighter armor will suffer much more damage from tank shells than a tank with heavy armor.

The amount of units surprised me, as there are almost a dozen different infantry squads, as well as almost two dozen tanks and armored vehicles for each side (excluding the French Resistance). You can also realistically build up your base of operations with MG nests, AT bunkers and more.

I sometimes question if the enemy AI are actually trying to kill me or just exploring and happen to find my base, but then again, it's very advanced for 2004.

Finally, you have the ability to call in aerial reconnaissance, a light bombing strike, or even carpet bombing. There's even stuctures and vehicles that can counter these strikes.

Overall, I still find that this game can fit well in modern games aside from the graphics.
Definately buy this if you have the spare cash.

Even though it is an old game, this is very good. Besides a few graphical gliches and gliches in general, this game is amazing compared to some real time strategy games I've played before. Although the multiplayer is non-existant, if you can get a few friends with you, this would be very enjoyable... 8/10

This game is so utterly non-strategic and its mechanics are so unrealistic and dumb that it's simply beautiful. Perfect if you want to have a small, not too engaging game that wishes it was a real RTS when it grows up.

This game might be old, and unapealling to the eye, but the aspects of the game are very nice.
Its kinda like a combination of "Age of Empires" and "Command & conquer", its nice if you like just a little beat of diplomacy and alot of killing.

This game is actually pretty good for it's cheap price tag. If there was a game that I will relate it to, it is kind of like an older Order of War. In my opinion, it is not an addicting game, but if you have $5 spare cash, then buy this game and spend a number of hours on it.

I could buy a beer instead of this game. It would be much better. I hoped it would be something like earth 2150 or wwIII black gold. Sadly this game is unplayable. Resistance missions miss translation, rifle infantry can shred your tanks. Dear GOD, who made such game?
