Additional content

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.

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.

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 -
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- -
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 then, what do I think of Panzer Corps?

I bought the game when before the Gold bundle dropped so the DLC etc was a little too expensive for my liking but certainly worth getting for the content it provides. The retro Panzer General theme is a favourite of mine and all the classic features that made PG so brilliant are in there too. Fans of the Panzer and Allied General games should love this one and its well worth a crack says I.

-Retro magic
-Strategic gaming at its best with a massive range of units and scenarios
-Fog of war ;-)
-Music and sound effects are great

Cons (At time of purchase)

-Cost of DLC (Kind of irrelevant now I guess).
-Difficulty levels don't always scale in a logical fashion and sometimes the jump can be a bit much. (Not a deal breaker really though)

I'd give it 8/10 Badger Points :-)

Way back in 1995 I came across the SSI classic Panzer General. It was an instant love of mine and has remained so ever since. Heck, I still have my ancient 90's playstation just so I could play that one game. For years I dreamed of some sort of updated remake to the classic. Well that time has come and its more than I could have hoped. Panzer Corps is not only true to the original, it expands the rules and complexity without losing any of the aspects that make the game so addictive. Anyone who is a fan of turn based combat or a WWII military history fan will find something to fall in love with.

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.

Engaging, fun, both for casual and hardcore players. Highly moddable, and plenty of content to be played base or with DLC. DLC is not required, but over time have expanded to different area of the war. In the base game alone you'll be taking the role of Germany and fight through Europe, Africa, and America for world domination. If you play right you will eventually defeat the U.S. so the game alone offers hundreds of units and over 30 scenarios in the game alone. As mentioned the DLC merely expands to different nations or campaigns or even expands certain invasions. All of the DLCs offer different scenarios which are straightforward on the storepage, there is not paywall and with the level editor you can literally create all of these things yourself. (but you'll still want the DLC just because you'll love the game so much). This game is like the PC version of Advanced Wars: Day of Ruin which I played on the DS when I was a kid, while this game is a hex-grid rather a squared one, the way units fight and have fuel and a base hitpoint of 10 (can be extended when the units become experienced or elite) reminds me of the good old days of Day of Ruin. I never played Panzer General but I hear people mention this as a worthy successor, while those who have no experience with strategy games will find this game appealing and educational at the same time. This game is simply awesome and I recommend it, really it's kind of a must have in my opinion.

Good day and happy gaming ! Thanks for reading
