Panzer Corps: Soviet Corps Release Date



All-time classic Panzer Corps and its expansions covered almost every single battle of the European theater of World War II.

In 2015 there was even the chance to lead a completely fictional invasion of Great Britain with the Axis Forces in Operation Sea Lion.

However, until now, no campaign devoted to the Red Army was available. Fans of Russian history will no longer be frustrated because Soviet Corps – a stand-alone expansion of Panzer Corps – will be released on PC on February, 18!

Expanding upon the successful Panzer Corps game system, Soviet Corps features 25 challenging scenarios on multiple fronts.

From the Winter War in Finland to the last offensives against Japan in Manchuria, players will relive 6 exhausting years of war from the Soviet point of view.

More than 60 new regular and special elite units have been added to the huge database for an unforgettable experience at the head of the Red Army!

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

When it comes to being Panzer General, Panzer Corps beats the pants off the competition.

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

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.

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

A Panzer Corps Review

As a wargamer and a WW2 enthusiast I might not be that objective when I'm saying that this game's pretty damn good! At the same time however, the hours spent (not only on this but other wargames as well) trying to beat the campaign on Field Marshal, testing my skills with people on multiplayer, exploring the game on many levels, do grant me a well thought out opinion of this game, I hope :P

On with a brief presentation of the game!
Panzer Corps Wehrmacht (PC) is a light, turn based (Igo-Ugo) strategy game and a reimplementation of the old school Panzer General (PG). If you liked PG you'll almost definitely enjoy PC and the opposite of course. The idea is simple. You start the second world war commanding part of the German army, starting from the invasion of Poland and decide its fate with possibilities ranging, depending on your performance, from its historical demise to a *minor spoiler* glorious blitzkrieg through the entire US.

The fun of the game derives through its tactical simplicity though it leaves a lot of room for depth—for those willing to look for it.
All you have to do is move and fire your units in any order you desire. Simple enough, huh?
Sure, but in order to master the game, you have to grasp many subtle mechanisms. Panzer Corps features: a variety of terrain with unique characteristics, unit suppression, an interesting initiative system, unit retreat/surrender, a weather system, supply (albeit in an unrealistic form due to the lack of supply lines), entrenchment, zone of control, strategic redeployment and many more interesting elements.

Furthermore the game comes with many units that, besides chrome, offer many tactical opportunities. Will you plow the battlefield with slow moving King Tigers or blitz with Panther tanks? Will you dominate the skies with a combined fighters/dive bombers force or follow a fighter-bomber doctrine? Due to the many different unit types offered, the efficiency of combined arms really shines.

Another aspect of Panzer Corps is its subtle yet engaging strategic element.
You are given command of a core force that you control through the entire game, in contrast to a couple of secondary/temporary units that are provided for a single scenario. This core force can be expanded by buying/upgrading units between or during the scenarios but, friendly note, don't try to figure the scale; units may represent divisions, corps, or even armies, depending on the scope of the scenario. In addition, every unit gains experience through combat and the dilemma of how to replace loses, through regular (inexperienced and cheap) or elite (battle-hardened and expensive) replacements, arises. This of course means I have to explain prestige as well...

Prestige (the game currency) depends on your performance on the scenario. That is the capture of objectives (primary/secondary) and the battle outcome (normal/decisive victory or defeat). A decisive victory may have to come many times through attrition which may cost in the long-run. Even more choices!

However not everything's great...
To begin with, the A.I. is relatively uninspired. It doesn't act terribly ahistorically or plain silly (besides two rare situations) but the difficulty of most scenarios comes through the numerical advantage of the enemy. Then we have the repetitive objectives, at least in Wehrmacht, "Capture all cities in X turns". A few people nag about the lack of replay value as well but I beg to differ. Besides the branching campaign and the multiplayer scenarios (can be played both online and hotseat) there are a lot mods at your disposal for free!

Another thing that bugged me is the fact that, although there is an option of a detailed battle sheet both before and after each combat, the game lacks detail both in the tutorial and the manual. This leaves those eager to dig deeper no option other than to go through many forum posts. For example artillery has a rate of fire stat that isn't mentioned anywhere in the game! Every basic piece of information is covered however and the interface, in most cases, is intuitive and elegant.

Finally, the realism issue arises. Due to its abstract nature this game is far from a simulation at a strategic level. The lack of many important details make it unrealistic at a tactical level as well. At its heart however every decision the player makes is realistic, in a sense that the same dilemmas arose to WW2 generals as well. Somehow, through the careful deduction from realism, this game manages to remain true, as much as a light wargame can, to the nature of the war.

All in all, Panzer Corps is a strategy game I would recommend to everyone; both the uninitiated who wants to discover the joys of wargaming and the grognard who wishes for a less complex game.

An extraordinary game by Slitherine. For those of you that adore Panzer General this game is for you, below I showcase the new update which adds "Operation Sealion" to the game. Yes, this is Agrippa from the Slitherine Stream Team :D. An instant 10/10 and arguably the finest WW2 turn based game on the market. If you want content, this game is chock full of it, and the developers are always adding something new. Whether Axis or Allies, it is up to YOU to change the outcome of WW2.

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.

Really fun and simple to play game. I though the unit graphics looked good, and the missions are fun to play. It's a mix between a hex based grand strategy game and a hex based squad level game.... Fun to play! Lots of content if you buy the DLC too!
