Summary: I love turn-based military hex strategy games and Panzer Tactics is a lot of fun. There are 3 campaigns to play (Axis, Soviets, Allies) and each of them will keep you occupied for many many hours, so this game gets good mileage for your gaming dollar. I played through the German campaign and now I'm on the Soviets. It's fun to see the game from the other side, though it's basically the same units with different paint jobs.
Panzer Jeneral 1.7 (contains 90% actual Panzer General)
Wearing the Crimson Mask, Amazon
19 May 2009
Summary: If you love Panzer General you'll love this game as well, which is heavily inspired by it, to the point of it almost being a copy. There is a learning curve at first, but once you get immersed, it's highly addictive and lots of fun. The game is about 90% Panzer General, somewhere in between PG1 and PG2 rules-wise. Playing through the game I notice some details or minor rules here and there that are different.
Summary: This game brings me to my days of Panzer General. This game is extremely solid in both play and mechanics. If you loved Panzer General, you will LOVE this game. While this might not be great for kids, any fan of wargames will drool over this gem. I couldn't be happier with a DS game.
Summary: This game is great! The scenarios are absorbing and realistic, and the historical accuracy that this game has is also nice. Some of the units can be hard to tell apart, but that problem goes away over time as you get used to the game. I have played the Advance Wars games and this game is a little more realistice (with hexagon squares, planes being able to fly over land units and your units getting hurt even if you destroy the unit you are attacking)and also takes longer...
Panzer General II cloned (and that's a good thing)
28 January 2008
Summary: Like another reviewer said, this is like a copy of the Panzer General series, specifically Panzer General II, and if you loved that game, you'll love this one. It's also tempting to compare this to Advance Wars DS, although it's not quite as easy to pick up and play it as the Advance Wars series. This is partly because the DS is not a great platform for this game.
Summary: I like this game alot. It offers a more realistic wargaming experience than Advance Wars but without sacrificing the fun. I just finished Advance Wars 2 the day I took Panzer Tactics of the box and I am having just as much fun, different yes, but equally fun. I like the depth of variety in units and maps as well as the challenging AI which makes for a satisfying victory.
Summary: This game rocks! If you liked panzer general 2 you will love this game. The graphics are ok but the strategy is what makes this game so much fun. I have a hard time putting it down. Using the touch screen is a little touchy but you get use to it. You can save the game at any time and if you fail a mission you can start back up at your save point. I have been playing this for a week now and I'm still on the easy missions so this game isn't going to end anytime soon.
Summary: I posted about this game on a video game site this morning. I got this game for Xmas, and I thought it was just a junk throwaway. I assumed it was on sale or something. Anyway, I clicked on it on amazon to see what it costs. Lo and behold it's a brand new title. Seriously, I've missed my BART stop three times in a row playing this game. It's totally absorbing. I will probably end up playing it at my desk once my boss leaves.
Summary: Panzer Tactics is a good strategy game with similar complexity to the old hex board games. While I like that it's more serious than Advance Wars, I do wish it had a little more of the simplicity and the 'human side' of Advance Wars. While Panzer Tactics is about machinery, Advance Wars feels a little more personal. I get a little more attached to 'my men' and a little more sorry when I send them to their deaths.
