Is this the next block buster game? Is this the new cool tank game we all have been waiting for?

No, probably not, but due to the fact that there's not much choice when it comes down to tank games, especially on Steam..It's worth your while.

The graphics are okay, although a NOT animated track is pretty bad, the gameplay is easy and fun as long as you take this as a quick tank shooting game between lunch and work.

It's nothing special, although you can see a certain amount of dedication that went into the creation of this game. Probably more than in to the creation of this ♥♥♥♥♥♥ review after downing a bottle of Sake...

Anyway, get this game if you've got too much money on your hands, or if you just like to drive around in a tank.
But, don't expect the next Tank of Duty game.

This is a pack of two games (Panzer Elite Action "Dunes of War" and "Fields of Glory") with lots of potential but excuted poorly in several ways. First, the Tiger tanks are rendered without their turrets in both games. I can't believe that wasn't caught in their quality checks. Second, the tank physics in several missions is like more like a beach ball than a multi-ton armored vehicle. If a tank from your squad runs into you, your tank is bounced off the ground or spun around like a beach ball. In one mission I was bounced into a mine field and blew up. In the D-Day mission, the Sherman rolls over easily at the slightest slope of beach. Third, the tank treads are not animated. Let me also summarize every mission: Shoot waves of enemy tanks. Expect anti-tank guns to ambush you around every corner. Find health. Find ammo. Repeat endlessly. If you are looking for strategy or variation this is not your game. Gameplay gets really tedious, especially in Dunes of War. It becomes a question of "Can I find health?" not "How can I out-think my enemy?" It's a shame really because the graphics are not bad. The voice actors are pretty good. The historical vignettes with old movie footage are pretty good too. Gameplay is OK. There are no on-screen instructions in Dunes of War so play Fields of Glory first so you learn the keyboard commands. I am still looking for that magic, amazing, well-conceived tank game you can play over and over. This is not it.

This game has a lot of good qualities, but many of them are nullified by the utter crap that is the AI and lack of diversity in gameplay.

Many of you will enjoy the feel of commanding your own tank force, as well as knowing that your air force are fighting furiously in the skies above you, and I good thing to notice is that the skybox literally looks almost like real sky.

However, know that every main gun you get behaves the exact same way, such as my 20mm Kwk having the exact same effect as a 75mm Kwk. Every shell also appears to be HE, which is something that drives me away from liking the tank combat.

From what I can tell, the part of your tank that a shell hits has an effect on how much damage you take. However, many times the AI tanks will charge you, then immidiatly turn around, exposing their engine (which is a 1-shot kill) and running away.

It's worth noting that in-game models seem to be made with care, as I was quickly able to distinguish a ZiS gun from a PaK gun. You can also see the differences between infantry models, as well as the weapons they carry. The tank models, however, look made in a 640x400 resolution. Seeing as how the game can run in 1366x768, they just plain look ugly.

The missions aren't very diverse. It's always a mix of "kill everything that moves," "go here," and "don't die." Thus the game gets boring very quickly. The few siege missions are set up very, very poorly. They allow you to camp around your repair and ammo supplies and kill the oncoming enemies as quickly or slowly as your little heart desires.

Overall, this isn't necessarily a bad game, but it's most certainly not a good one either.

Rating: **

I thought this would be more like Panzer Elite. I'm guessing the creators were counting on that. The turret model rendering for the Tiger Tank is broken, meaning no turret graphic when you're driving the Tiger. (maybe this won't apply to you?)This game would be fun but the physics of driving the tank are very poor. The Pz II in FoG is so hard to drive, it is almost unplayable at points. Since the physics are off, the tank driving is "unique" at best, and the "Tiger Bug" has no patch or any ETA on one, I'll have to give this 2 stars. No something I would recommend for fans of WoT, Pz. Elite, etc.

Don't buy if you have Windows 7/8, this game is not compatible with these OS.
Tracks don't move and the tank are poorly rendered, they glide on the terrain wreaking any immersion.
I have the boxed version of Fields of Glory and Dunes of War was tempting, I bought the game again but the immersion is broken.

AI is bad and some missions are poorly built, however the pleasure was in driving and battling tanks. Now even this is lost.

- tracks don't move
- no turrets on Tiger tanks, you drive them for a few missions, and later you'll fight a lot of them - no one has a turret
- bumping into another tank makes your tank spin round and round
- walls fliker during the Stalingrad missions
- Sherman tank overeturns at the slightest left or right turn, you have to stop the tank, turn, and then move forward

This game should not be sold without a warning.

This game was one of my favourite games of my childhood and I loved it, so you can imagine my surprise/excitement when I saw it on here. My eagerness to play an old favourite quickly turned to dismay. The model details in this version are shocking (tracks aren't even animated ffs) compared to how they were on the original version I played all those years ago. I don't know why this version is so different and disappointing. 2/10 childhood fave ruined.

This is a set that contains both Panzer Elite Action-Fields of Glory and its expansion,Dunes of War. The game isn't too bad and seeing as you get both the game and its expansion there isn't much to complain about regarding the cost.There is three factions in the main game, Soviets,Americans,and Germans.There isn't THAT much tank diversity and a lot of the models are pretty ♥♥♥♥♥♥ looking. The game's graphics serve their purpose but are by no means great. The Tiger tank models,for example,are abysmal. The turret on the tigers isn't even there. This is a pretty noticable problem seeing as you will be fighting a LOT of these and in one mission you play as one.Also,the tank treads are not even animated.They're static textures. One thing this game does incredibly well,however, is the environments. You fight in a multitude of battlegrounds such as invading the dunes of Africa all the way to helping out the 101st in Bastogne.The AI is abysmal. The friendly tanks will just run into you and,on occasion,shoot you in the back. The enemy AI will sometimes just sit there as you obliterate them. Another problem is the tank handling. The tanks handle like Go-Karts. You may be trying to round a corner and then all the sudden you flip over. The voice acting is suprisingly good. There is absolutely no strategy involved in the game. The battles are just a rush for the repair station and then you deal with the enemies.You are able to use commands and order friendly tanks around. However,these are never very well explained even in the manual.
Lots of potential here but between terrible handling,graphics that leave much to desire,abhorrent AI,and the repair-rush battles this game was quite the let down.Dont buy unless you are extremely tolerant.

A surprisingly fun arcade tank game. If you liked the tank missions in the Call of Duty Series, I defininately recommend checking this one out.

While this game may not be graphicly impressive or very realstic, but i have had more fun with this than i have had with other tank games out there (namely WoT and War Thunder) the lack of track animation is slightly annoying, there are bigger problems with the game. at certian times it will freeze with its loading animation in the center of the screen, but a quick restart of the game fixes it right up and you can start at the latest checkpoint. As i play through more, diffrent tanks are arrive so that compleant is gone, now i see somthing that is really...quite amazing, the voice actors TRY. your Russian crew sounds diffrent from your German crew (mind blown). Even better are a few changes in the missions (which are long BTW which is fun) in one of the German missions you encounter KV-1s, which are difficult to kill, but they do NOT become the main tank for the rest of the mission (like most games would do) because, as your crew says, they are expermental and not 'battle ready' yet, which is really cool. still, i love this game, and i want modders to find this and make it even better than it already is
lets break down the review

Story- (its WWII and you are common tankers, so) N/A
Charicters- 7/10
graphics- 6/10 (2007, i can't blame it too much but, it could be better)
Difficulty-8/10(can be changed)
amount of tanks 9/10 (no game can be perfect)
This is not a game changer in the world of tank games, this is fun, simple and great worth grabbing just for some tank action (or Panzer action, or for those that are good at tanks, panzer elite action)

Tanks - Check
Tanks that appear to be made out of lego - Check
Tanks with painted on tracks that don't move - Check
Tanks that seem to weigh next to nothing - Check
Tanks that bounce off of everything in the world and do gnarly 360 degree spins - Check

Overall if you like looking at the back of a tank while the tracks slide along the ground.
Whilst the cannon you are aiming at the enemy.....doesn't aim at the enemy.
Whilst listening to terrible voice acting
And liberally topped with graphics like a 90's console game.
This game is for you.

If you like games that are playable and you can throughly enjoy.......
Well you may be better off looking elsewhere.

Its very sad that we don't have many tank games on steam. This game is pretty forgettable, ~20 missions of 30 min each one, it becomes very repetitive after a while,

Game glitches on modern systems make it unplayable tank tracks don't move, the tiger tank is missing it's turret, lot of other graphics problems that will not be fixed though from what I have read the demo does not have this problem.

Save your money and skip it no matter how cheap it is.

If I didn't pay 3$ (sale) I would ask for a refund. It is that bad. Does not feel like a tank game, u drive and shoot but it all feels very boring. Also, the tracks don't work - the tanks just glide over the landscape! I knew it for the reviews and tought I could get over it but I just can't lol. BTW I am a huge tank fan (played Panzer Commander and playing World of Tanks...).

Amazing game!

I bought it for CAD $2.74, so I'm not complaining for the price I got it. I enjoy it, and think it's a wonderful tank arcade game. The Tiger I mission has a bug where your tiger tank's turret has gone astray! Time for the ghosts to strike!

I recommend this game, but recommend it even more, when on offer!

I played the original Panzer Elite upon release and even purchased the re-release as there are not many Tank Simulation games.
This Panzer Elite Action Gold Edition is not a Tank Simulation game either.
The game play here is exceedingly simple. You drive along, you shoot at the enemy in a very arcade style manner.
The voice acting is not bad, and there's an attempt to make you feel you are part of a tank crew.
The main, and unforgivable problem, is the physics are absurd. Your tank can't go up an incline, you will roll over your tank so often, the game actually has built in code to flip your tank back upright automatically. You aren't rolling your tank because you approached an angle incorrectly, but because you turned on flat ground too fast and rolled your tank over. Your squad will also accidentally ram your tank and flip you over.
You can run over any tree in existence and barely slow down, but you can't travese the smallest of steps.
I finally had to stop "playing" to see if it could get any better, when my force of tanks was spread out and we were being attacked (as usual) by overwhelming numbers of enemy tanks (that never do anything other than drive straight toward you, then turn to create rear kill shots) and one the tanks in my group clipped me, that bounced me into another one of my units tanks, which bounced me into another one of my units tanks, which bounced me into another tank, and because I'm not driving forward, all the tanks stop, so my command tank is literally bouncing around like a pinball off of one tank to another tank, while spinning like a made top.

Panzer Elite Action Gold Edition, the one you will actually get, is a totally different game from Panzer Elite, the one you are able to see on the store page. (For example, track in screenshot seems able to move but become just a pair of fixed blocks in the game.
The shortage of this game which I found had already been written in comments by others so I am not going to repeat them again.

If Panzer Elite is a game between good and fair, in my opinion, Panzer Elite Action Gold Edition would be bad for sure.
