Panzer Corps: U.S. Corps is out!

All-time classic Panzer Corps is coming back with three new expansions for a total of fifty new scenarios. Each one has its own unique theatre of operations and scenarios, but all linked in a colossal branching campaign with complete unit carry over!

In U.S. Corps ’42 you start with “Operation Torch” where brave but inexperienced American “rookies” land in the sands of North Africa and join their allies. They must take the lead on several actions against the French command in Morocco and Algeria and then head eastwards, where they will face the remnants of the Italo-German army in Tunisia in a total of 16 different scenarios.

The second expansion begins the year after. In U.S. Corps ‘43 the goal is to liberate Sicily and use it as base from where to land on mainland Italy. The Allies have to overcome the resistance of the german army and open the road to Rome during another new set of 16 scenarios.

In the third and final instalment of the mega campaign, U.S. Corps ’44 - ‘45, you’ll lead the largest amphibious invasion in history, and with it, the Battle of Normandy. The plan is to land on several beaches in northern France, then to push east towards Berlin and finally put an end to the war for a total of 18 original scenarios!


Also tonight, on May 26, 20.00 (CEST), we are going to give players a sneak peek of the game on our official Twitch channel!

Panzer Corps is a solid and loving overhaul of the classic Panzer General. Technical implementation and graphic design leave little room for any criticism.

Easy to learn, simple interface, hard to stop playing once you start, you don't have to be a serious wargamer to appreciate.

9/10 - CPU Gamer
When it comes to being Panzer General, Panzer Corps beats the pants off the competition.

90% - Armchair General
Overall, PanzerCorps is one of the best “beer and pretzels” turn based wargame releases in years. The game is very polished and stable. It is fun to play.

...nothing short of brilliant.

9/10 - RTSguru
This was seriously one of the best games that we have ever played. If you do not pick this up, you are missing out.

9/10 - Onet.pl
If one asked how would Panzer General be like if it was released today? The answer is simple - it would be Panzer Corps.

9/10 - EntDepot
Panzer Corps has me dreaming in hexagons nowadays.

A- - GameShark.com
Now that the official review is complete, if this were any other game it would go on the shelf next to other games that have been “finished” but I have every intention of firing it up again.ລ

第二次世界大戦のドイツ軍を題材としたターン制ストラテジー。キャンペーンはドイツ軍しかないが、シナリオでは連合軍(米・英・ソ)もプレイ可能。良い点と悪い点を書いていく。
良い点
・陸・空のユニットが豊富
・ゲームバランスが良い
・コアユニットと経験値システム
・戦闘時において運要素がある
・ライブラリー
・エディター


・陸、空のユニットが豊富
Ⅳ号戦車やメッサーシュミットなどの派生型がある。公式によると800種類のユニットが登場 すると書いてある。

・ゲームバランスが良い
日本製のターン制ストラテジー(某第二次世界大戦の大戦略)に比べてゲームバランスがとられている。そのため、戦闘機で戦車を全滅させることは不可能であり、当然戦闘機無双もできない。一部を除いて(コアユニットと経験値システムで説明する)基本的に無双はできないと考えた方がいい。戦車砲や対空砲などそれぞれの兵科に役割があり、無駄な兵科がないのも好印象。しかし対空砲は若干弱く感じた。

・コアユニットと経験値システム
 コアユニットとは、キャンペーンの始まりから終わりまで継続して運用できるユニットのことをいう。普通のユニットだと各シナリオにしか運用できないため、経験値システムとの関わりはほぼない。一方、コアユニットは継続して運用できるため、経験値が蓄積されていきエースユニットを作ることができる。「ゲームバランスが良い」の項目で書いた「一部を除いて」というのは、このエースユニットのことを指す。しかし、エースユニットを多く作ることはできないだろう。エースユニットでも必ず被害を受ける。その時にユニットを修理する必要があるのだが、修理方法は経験値を維持したまま多くの費用を使って修理するか経験値を減らす代わりに修理費用をカットするかの2つある。経験値を維持したまま修理すればするほど資金がなくなり、新しいユニットが出てきても買うことができないなどの弊害が出てくる。そのため、エースユニットを多く作ることは不可能だろう。しかし、この仕様のおかげでゲームバランスを崩すことなく適度な爽快感(無双)を与えてくれる。

・戦闘時において運要素がある
 敵ユニットを攻撃する時、自分のユニットの損害と敵ユニットの損害の両方の予測が表示されるが、それ通りにならないことが多々ある。具体的な戦闘の詳細は「コントロールキー押しながら敵ユニットに左クリック」すると表示される。戦闘の詳細が分からずに、予測を目安にして戦っても問題はない。ところで、なぜこれを良い点にしたかというと、戦争に運はつきものだと思うからである。

・ライブラリ
イラスト付きの兵器の説明。ゲームとは全く関係ないが見ていて楽しい
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=724357973
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=724358460

・エディター
自分でシナリオを作成できる。


悪い点
・海軍ユニットが少ない
・英語表記なので多少不便
・時間が経つとPCが若干重くなる


・海軍ユニットが少ない
このゲームのタイトルが「Panzer Corps」なので海軍ユニットは補助的な役割になっている。海軍ユニットは存在するものの、ドイツは巡洋戦艦、戦艦、重巡洋艦、軽巡洋艦、潜水艦、汎用揚陸艇の各1種類のみである。戦艦は「battleship」、重巡洋艦は「Heavy Cruiser」と表記されており、ビスマルクやプリンツ・オイゲンなど固有名詞のユニットとして登場しない。個人的には少し寂しい。しかし、一部例外としてUボートは存在する。(wikiによるとドイツ海軍の保有する潜水艦の総称なので固有名詞ではないか…)

・英語表記
私も含む日本人にとっては不便である。世界標準語だから仕方がない。英語ができなくても直感的に遊ぶことは可能。しかし、最低でも目標は読めるようにしたい。

・時間が経つとPCが若干重くなる
恐らく個人の環境によるものだろう。他の方のレビューを見たとき、それらしきレビューは書かれていなかった。


その他
DLC版だが、ルーデルやハルトマンなど実在していた軍人がエースユニットとして登場する。ゲームでもルーデルは強い、強すぎる。


総評 9/10
第二世界大戦のターン制ストラテジーとしては完成度の高い素晴らしいゲームである。
買って損はないだろう。もし心配ならプレイ動画を見たり、セール時に購入することをお勧めする。

Well i loved panzergeneral and played alot. i liked the ability to play each side. When i saw this game i bought it cause i wanted to play the same way BUT its only the german part. Anything else you have to buy as dlc. Another anoying thing is that you have in the campaign battles which never happend. Since when did german locked down stalin or Captured Great Britain and finally the assault on Amerika. omg i really liked it until i met that point. That was too much fiction..

I started to enjoy this game, played it for a few hours and got some achievements and finshed the first campaign. I went and looked at the achievements and saw that there were one's for playing as the British, America et al, so I went to start a new campaign as one of the Allies...except I can't, unless I buy the DLC, which is hugely expensive! This game is seriously dated - which in itself isn't a bad thing - but when you view the DLC and see the prices...it is a complete and utter rip off! This is a disgusting way of doing business and I will avoid products from Slitherine/Flashback Games/The Lordz Studio from now on, as I believe they cannot be trusted.

I find this game amusing, and even though I have fun with it, I found another game by the same makers: Order of Battle World War II.

When I found that game it seemed so much better, as it was free and was also 3D! Although campaigns cost, I find that one to be just a tad better than this one; along with the part this is 2D, pays a lot to get.

I do have to say, free Editor and more campaigns!

Got this on the summer sale, can't beat the price. I loved playing Panzer General and it seemed this was very similar.

Had some trouble getting the resolution to work right at first. Firgured out if I lowered my computers resolution to 1280x768 and the DPI to 100%, then restarted the computer it worked great and was much easier to see.

So far it seems just like Panzer General and all seems to be working correctly. Will play on easy until I remember the rules and am looking forward to playing more.

このゲーム面白いです。
往年の大戦略シリーズの正当進化版とでもいうべき内容でとても面白い。

主要な違いは、対空砲が弱体化されており、爆撃機が大活躍します。(戦闘機は天敵)
結構ダイナミックに攻めれるのですが、そのためターン制限が苦しいです。
また、ユニットごとに成長システムがありRPG要素もあります。歴戦の英雄をつくりだせば戦況を有利にすすめることができます。

最も重要なのは如何に相手を崩すかを考えることであり、物量をそろえて寄せれば勝てるという仕様になってはいません。
常に相手の一番手薄なところを探して攻める。これを意識しないと勝てません。川、森、山とにかく地形を友達にしないといけません。
だから、パンツァークラップって銘打ってる割に、戦車無双出来ません^^;。
市街地攻略が多いので、戦車には市街地攻略時にマイナス補正が強くかかるため、相対的に歩兵のほうが使いやすい。
歩兵は特徴の違う兵種が8種あり多彩な戦闘が可能です。

いい点&悪い点なんですけど、カリカリのターン制限の割には、ランダム性が存在しており、雨降ってて爆撃出来ない
とか、少数の敵がこもる都市が微妙に落とせないという事態が発生し、イライラが^^;
でも上手くいったときは、だからこそ会心の喜びがあるという。二項背反。

英語環境なんだけど、別にわからなくても遊べると思います。ルールはオーソドックスなので。

If you've played Panzer General before and you liked it, then that's all you need to know. This is basically a direct copy-update of the game.

What you REALLY want though, is the Grand Campaign. That alone is worth the full price twice over, it's literally what it says on the tin. A grand campaign from 39-45 and it is much better paced than the stand alone game. It's also very good at representing what went on in the war and provides a nice learning curve. You'll stomp through Poland with ease, bounce up through Norway, smash the French as if they weren't there (after some minor resistance from the Belgians) and you'll feel epic as a General after having all those conquests. More so when you raid the Balkans.

Then you go off against Russia, and it's easy, you smash them, underequipped, out of supply, un prepared. And you're laughing, over your German beer and with your fraulein sitting in your lap, you're one of the best army generals in the Nazi Regime.

Then reality hits. The Russians mobilise, they get their airforce at you, their tanks roll towards you and the legions and legions of infantry just won't stop. Your puny Panzers' shells can't even stand up to their tanks, your anti-tanks get steamrolled, and its here, right on the battlefield in mother Russia that you'll find out whether your skills as a General are up to scratch. By the end of it, Poland and France will seem like a distant memory.

Reckon you're up to the challenge? Prove it! This game will push you to the limit.

This is one of those games I wish I could give a neutral rating to but since I can't, I'm giving it a thumbs down. This game has great ratings, so you can read many other reviews on why PC is a good game. It does many things right - a neat branching scenario structure, solid foundation and some good voice overs to introduce the scenarios. For me, thats not enough and thus I'm going to explain why I don't think it's good enough to get a thumbs up.

Simply put, PC is a remake of the old Panzer General games. And after playing this for 20 hours and playing those, I still think they're better games for one main reason: the Panzer Corps scenarios are usually very flawed.

Panzer Corps makes the mistake of having too many units on too small of a map. There is little to no room for manuever. Thus the game is more puzzle-based than it is tactical. It's just a matter of figuring out that at "x" chokepoint I need 3 infantry, 1 arty and a tank to bust through. Once I know that, it's a matter of going to the next chokepoint. The time frames are always very tight, which rewards perfect unit usage and not necessarily good tactics. Seriously, whether you win or lose in any given map is often decided by your first half dozen combat results - if they're very favorable you're golden. If not, you're probably totally screwed.

There are two types of battles - you're on the offense and you're on the defense. If you're on the offense, the AI is going to just sit back and let you come to them. There's no ebb and flow here - it's all a matter of finding the "right" way to knock down yet another brick wall. After playing a number of these scenarios, I felt like the Allies trying to fight through the German hedgerows - frustratingly slow, brute-force combat tactics because you can't manuever. It gets old, fast.

If you're on defense, you can expect overwhelming odds since the AI isn't as effective as a human. So those scenarios are gamed up to present a challenge in numbers since the AI can't do it otherwise. They were, in a nutshell, disappointing.

There are other issues as well. I find the map to be muddled and not attractive. It's a wargame, I know, and it doesn't need to be beautiful. But I'd personally rather have counters than the muddled color scheme presented here. The branching campaign is pretty neat but has some real issues - for instance, if do well enough as Germany and you're going to presented with an almost unwinable scenario in the USA. Do slightly worse and delay the US invasion by two years and you'll have a far more winnable scenario. That's just bad design. Sea power has almost no part in the game as well, so it's all ground and air combat. Combined arms need not apply in most scenarios.

But it all goes back to scenario design - too many units, too small maps, no manuever and thus no imagination. I found them constricting. So why would I advocate paying for Panzer Corps (and don't get me started on the absurd DLC prices) when the old Panzer General II does it better? I can't. I'd rather play PG than PC and therefore PC gets the thumbs down. For those who are interested in the genre, I recommend Order of Battle: Pacific. It's a very similar game with larger maps, more fluid combat, combined arms and the maps aren't as muddled. To me it's a far superior game and easily worth the price difference.

Overall: 9/10

Some 700 (seven hundred, holy.....!) hours later, and after over 220 scenarios I believe I am entitled to write a review of Panzer Corps, Panzer General's successor.

When I played the original Panzer General, back in '94, I remember the ashtrays quickly filling up as I kept on playing with a friend (swapping chairs when it was the other's turn). It was the first time I enjoyed a wargame on a computer, while my first grognard experience happened some ten years before when I was "inducted" through Avalon Hill's Third Reich boardgame. So, yes, I like my wargames.

Since this is a videoGAME review, I will try and wear the gamer's hat, rather than the hardcore grognard's helmet.

This review is based on a playthrough of the Grand Campaign, Afrika Corps and Allied Corps, so all the "DLCs", the full enchilada.

Pros:
- While the replayability is quite low, if it takes 650 hours to play through: even at full price, the cost opportunity is pretty good like 10 cents an hour.
- Each scenario is different and there's never a dull moment.
- The game is easy to learn and quite hard to master.
- The number of units (and the very different way to employ each and every one of them) as well as the historical research to build the scenarios is quite impressive.
- The game is virtually bug free. This should be a given, but it's worth mentioning considering the amount of junk that is unleashed on customers these days (Football Manager 2014, Rome Total War 2, and so forth).
- It runs smoothly on pretty much every rig / OS / graphic card.
- Far from being flashy, the graphics do their job.
- The addition of heros makes the experience more personal.
- The heavily scripted AI does its job at keeping you challenged.

Cons:
- Increasing difficulty beyond General level, rather than giving you more challenges, just increases the number of enemies / or their equipment quality (to very ahistorical levels).
- The basic game feels like a demo compared to the Grand Campaign. definitely get all the DLCs.
- The hero traits are too random (ok, this is the grognard talking, but, seriously, Artillery units with "spotting" traits and Air units with "movement" benefits are really useless / non-sensical).

So, whether you are a gamer with a casual interest in World War 2 tactics or a tough wargamer who looks for something more relaxing, this game is damn near perfect.
