After the awesome that was Panzer Elite, the addition of the work "Action" to the title is a sad step backwards.

The missions are very linear and very repetitive, with no opportunity for long range spotting or gunnery for the most part or room to maneuver, but it doesn't matter. The enemy AI will blindly and foolishly charge you with a suicidal enthusiasm and their tanks never seem to be a match for yours.

All the cool penetration and damage mechanics are gone, replaced by a simple hit point style system.

There is no system for modifying your vehicles and repairs and rearming are arcade-ish.

If you want a light game that requires no thought and happens to feature armor this might be good for a few hours of distraction. If you are looking for something like the original Panzer Elite, you might consider something more along the lines of T34 vs. Tiger.

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.

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.
