About This Game

Classic gameplay. New experience.
Panzer Corps Wehrmacht is the award-winning turn-based strategy game that the press has called “…nothing short of brilliant” and “the spiritual successor to the Panzer General series”, with high rankings and praise around the world. Brought to fruition by a team of experts and a community of hundreds of fans, Panzer Corps - Wehrmacht has evolved into the ultimate strategy classic that will find a home on any wargamer’s shelf!

Set in World War II, Panzer Corps - Wehrmacht puts players in the general’s tent in charge of the Axis armies, across 26 scenarios in one large campaign tree, carrying core forces through the war. This core force can gain experience and upgrade to new weaponry as it becomes available. With over 800 unit types, divided into 20 unit classes there is a huge amount to explore. Make use of your unit’s strengths and your enemy’s weaknesses and seize victory.

Looking for a more ‘human’ challenge? Panzer Corps’ multiplayer is deservedly popular, with thousands of games running on the server at any given time. Find an opponent online quickly and easily throughout the world with Slitherine’s award-winning PBEM++ asynchronous multiplayer system. Play historical battles or balanced scenarios created specifically for multiplayer, where both sides have equal chances to win. Panzer Corps supports cross platform multiplayer, so you can even battle owners of the iPad version of the game!

Developed by Flashback Games and The Lordz Games Studio, Panzer Corps - Wehrmacht replicates a classic wargame and upgrades it to 21st century standards for a new generation of wargamers.


Main Features
• 800 unit types, divided into 20 unit classes with 20 detailed parameters to identify unit’s abilities, 24 terrain types affecting gameplay in various ways. Panzer Corps will celebrate the glory days of strategy gaming with the aim of attracting new players to the genre;
• Campaign: all 26 scenarios are combined into a large campaign tree with several entry points at various stages of the war. Depending on the outcome of each battle (decisive victory, marginal victory or defeat), the player will be faced with different challenges and a progress along different parts of the campaign tree;
• More than 30 nations represented in the game: Germany, Italy, Poland, France, Great Britain, USA, USSR, Norway, Belgium, Netherlands, Albania, Romania, Greece and more.
• Core units that travel with you throughout the campaign gaining experience and that can be upgraded as new weapon technologies become available.


Additional content
For players who enjoy the game, there is a lot of quality content which will keep them busy for months.

The Grand Campaign consists of 10 campaigns that bolt together to create a staggering 150 scenario Grand Campaign which cover the entire war from 1939 to 1945 in great detail. You can play them all linked together or each as a standalone campaign.

The Afrika Korps expansion consists of 24 scenarios, new terrain and units and explores Rommel’s North Africa campaign.

Panzer Corps: Allied Corps is an expansion for Panzer Corps. Allied Corps includes more than 25 new scenarios, over 50 new regular and special elite units, and modified version of existing units to cover the entire war in detail from the Western Allies perspective.

And if this is not enough, Panzer Corps comes with a bunch of modding options and a powerful editor, and there are dozens of free user-made campaigns readily available for download from the Internet.

All Panzer Corps content is also available on iPad, so this strategy gem can be played everywhere!

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.

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

Well what can I say, Panzer Corps is a remake of Panzer General by SSI. Tried and tested formula that works, great game lots of fun works well. The new publisher's have added a couple of new things but have not buggered it at all. I like all new additions most of which come from the PG2 modders :) But hey what the hell they have bought back to life a game I love.

The Only thing is the price if you can pick it up on sale well its a good buy. I really think the DLC/Addons are way over priced.

Whoever liked Panzer General will love this on. Who don't like Panzergeneral should stay away.

Panzer Corps is nearly identical to Panzer General only with a sort of a modern flair... I mean technically.

As native German speaking person I find the speeches a bid odd. If you're not a native speaker I think they will be great.

I'm a bit uncertain abouut the concept of buying armies separately. On one hand why pay for an army you don''t want to play. On the other hand if you like to play all armies, say like in Panzer General, the game is rather expensive.

Personally I love the genre as such and I'm looking very forward for the upcoming adaption of the 40K Universe. I hope it will be better than the old "Rites of War" . But anyways I allmost certainly will buy it.

Greetings from Berlin, Germany

I bought a boxed copy of the original Panzer Corps in 2011 and i played it for dozens of hours before i buy the complete PaCo stuff on Steam.
This game is very good. It's easy for a new player (new to Panzer Corps or new to turn-based strategy games) to learn but not easy to win, especially in some nasty missions. I have never played 1990s Panzer General (i am too young for that game), so i can't tell the difference, but i think the developers did all the right things and created a 2010s classic, i think it's more than just a modern remake. The number of various units the game contains is mind blowing. Although is not a simulation game by any means, the player has a feeling that he plays real battles from World War 2 and not just a chess like game.
I totally recommend Panzer Corps to any person that wants to play TBS games, newbie or veteran, this game is very good introduction to new players that want to enter the TBS genre and provide much challenge and fun to veteran players too.
A classic.
10/10

Panzer Corps is Panzer General for the 2010s. Gameplay is the same with updated graphics, interesting maps, new objectives, smooth interface and nothing stupid added. They've stayed true to the formula. Fantastic Game.

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.

If you think you have a Rommel/Montgomery/Patton/Zhukov in you, this is the game to buy if you do not want to buy a game where you have to spend half a life time to understand just simple rules. This is a "beer and pretzels"-game that is easy to understand, yet challenging when you crank up the difficulty. I found SSI when I played the old Panzer General, and have bought alot of games by Gary Griegsby/Joel Billings, and they rarely disappoint. Nor did they this time. Great fun!

I really like this game it has strategic gameplay along with re-supply, ammo, fuel and reinforcements in a way which is easy to manage and control on a large scale which is nice because the micromanaging of some games can get a little overwhelming. It also allows for alternate history where the player can actually suceed as the Axis rather than always having the same end where no matter how hard you work your team will always lose in the end.

Overall: 9/10

Some 650 (six hundred and fifty) hours later, and after over 220 scenario 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.

Epic, just epic.
Do you like strategy and thinking games, buy it!

I have played the original Panzer General and all expansions in the 90's. Best games I played as a teenager and young adult.
Now Panzer Corps recreates all the fun and adds lots more in the east and west grand campaign DLC's, events and my favourite Afrika corps.

It looks good, plays comfortably and is a thinking man's game. Just don't expect a FPS experience or such or over the top graphics. I've been playing Panzer Corps from the release, now 3 years ago. And all stand alones and DLC's.
Still playing and still having fun.

When writing this there's a sale on, but even at full price it's worth it every cent. All complainers about the supposed 'high' price don't appreciate the 'easy to learn, hard to master' approach of Panzer Corps, or realise the immense replayability of the game. And now a sale anyways.... lol

Try and have loads of fun.

It is panzer general so if you liked that you will like this. If you don't know what panzer general is, it is free now so google that. If suddenly you ask yourself, "wait, if panzer general is free then why buy this?" My answer: "shut up."

Great strategy game. RPG elements through heroes that are gained through gameplay. Core units carry over across multiple campaigns (DLC). The game also tracks indidivual unit stats. Hours of great turn-based strategy for a fair price.
