The best strategy on a hand held ever.

Rick Stokell "Unperson", Amazon
24 December 2013
  • Summary: I've put in over 200 hours into PT. Those of you who like Panzer General games MUST buy this. My favorite title of the massive and nebulous Nintendo DS library. A little-known classic.

A Learning Curve is Required

Borg9 "Borg9", Amazon
25 February 2013
  • Summary: This game is a port of the old Panzer General PC game. The controls seem rather murky at first, compared to the PC. And it took me a few tries at the tutorials before I got the hang of game play. I'm middle aged I had to play the tutorials about 3 times each before I got the knack. But once I did it was pure turn-based strategic Fun, with a capital 'F!

Rare depth for DS strategy games

John Brown, Amazon
29 March 2010
  • Summary: Most of the other reviews are right on target. While this game is probably not a good match for the under 10 crowd (who are probably more interested in Pokemon anyway) it does a great job at bringing this kind of game to the DS platform. The references to Panzer General are talking about a specific series of classic PC strategy games that were popular in the 1990's (which dates most of the reviewers to somewhere between 25-40...).

Great hex based WWII game

A Cold Six, Amazon
27 May 2009
  • Summary: Great game for the strategy-minded "big kid". Probably a little too dry for the younger crowd, but for the 20- 30-something this game is rock-solid strategy. Bring along your units and upgrade them throughout the story.

There's good news and bad news...

M. Wade, Amazon
8 January 2009
  • Summary: Here's the bad news: Graphics are hard to understand. The manual is almost useless. Game navigation is cumbersome. There's a STEEP learning curve. The good news: Once you learn how the game works, it can provide hundreds of hours of fun and amusement! This game needs a "2nd Edition" with lots of improvements, but if you're willing to work around the cons, and you like strategy games (kind of like chess on steroids) then this game is loads of fun.

Striking the Right Balance Between Challenge and Storyline.

Richard Hayward, Amazon
29 November 2008
  • Summary: Panzer Tactics DS strikes the right balance between a challenging strategy and an intriguing storyline for you to uncover as you march your way through three campaigns of World War II. Each scenario is uncovered as you make progress through the campaigns. The game is impossible to play without playing through at least some of the tutorials.

Like having Panzer General in your pocket!

Richard Tuggins, Amazon
30 December 2007
  • Summary: This game plays almost like a perfect copy of the Panzer General series and is a MUST HAVE for any fans of said series. Any fan of hex map strategy war games would like this even if they haven't been exposed to Panzer General. I am very happy with this purchase. The units stats are very well done and the game play mechanics are perfect for the DS. I hope they make a sequel.

Solid wargame

A. Jerahian, Amazon
17 December 2007
  • Summary: If you ever liked hex wargames, you'll love Panzer Tactics DS. It has all the best elements of turn-based strategy wargames, without the nitty-gritty rules that would get one mired in details. It is very fun, with the added bonus of unit level experience and special attacks. The developers did a great job packing the UI and gameplay experience within the limited controls of the DS.

Top 'grown-up' DS game

Dozza "a1-discs-games-books", amazon.co.uk
23 April 2010
  • Summary: This is the only 'proper' game I have found on the DS that I keep coming back to i.e. other than Touchmaster-type puzzles. I have tried lots of other games but can't stand the childish sprites you get for characters; this is a proper WWII game with nice renditions of vehicles (though you don't get to see that once they are on the map) and detailed breakdowns of their stats, strengths and weaknesses.
