Achtung Panzer: Kharkov 1943

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: There's a lot of potential in Achtung Panzer. The ground combat is the most enjoyable I've encountered since Relic's Company of Heroes, and playing tactically genuinely pays off. Yet these bouts of entertainment are marred by long periods of trundling tedium, and novices are likely to be baffled by the complex interface and the lack of direction in how the game is supposed to be played.

  • Excerpt: Imagine yourself as an army commanding officer back in 1943, in the middle of World War II. This is the battle for Kharkov and you can command the destiny of USSR or Germany. At your disposal are eighty seven unit types including soldiers, vehicles, tanks, and airplanes. The land is a vast thirty six kilometers and is fully destructible. The damage you do will still be there in later missions.

Game Vortex

  • Excerpt: Historical simulation games have traditionally been a fairly niche market. Players interested in this genre of games usually have a penchant for strategy and are interested in the historical value that a simulation provides. For many, it is this structure of gameplay and demand for patience that drive away the lighter-hearted gamers.

  • Excerpt: These days developers seem to be falling all over each other to try to dumb down their games to the least common denominator. In other words, if more people can play a game, then there is a bigger potential market, even if that means bringing in your grandmother at the expense of truly deep gameplay. However, Achtung Panzer: Kharkov 1943 takes an opposite approach. They say that only wargame connoisseurs should even try Achtung Panzer. And they mean it.

  • Excerpt: What's great about this "job" is that every so often you stumble across a game that is exactly what you have been looking for. "Achtung Panzer" is just such a game! Some ten years ago I became addicted to" Close Combat III, The Russian Front " and I have found "Achtung Panzer: Kharkov 1943" to be it's modern offspring.
  • Pros: Challenging gameplay, Full 3D environment, Historical accuracy
  • Cons: No multiplayer, Camera control took work

Nur für Berufssoldaten?

  • Excerpt: Wie viel Spaß muss ein Spiel bieten und wie viel davon darf bloße, nüchterne Simulation sein? In Achtung Panzer: Kharkov 1943 könnt ihr das selbst herausfinden, denn es stammt von Entwicklern „echter" Gefechtssimulatoren für das Militär.
  • Pros: eine Unzahl von möglichen Vorgehensweisen schafft sehr große taktische Tiefe, detaillierte und historisch korrekte Einheiten, Karten wurden mithilfe historischer und aktueller Luftaufnahmen rekonstruiert, geschickt vorgehende KI der Gegner und der eigenen Truppen
  • Cons: zu wenig erzählende und erklärende Elemente (historische Filmausschnitte, Zwischensequenzen in Spielgrafik usw.), schlechte Übersicht auf dem Schlachtfeld führt dazu, dass ihr ständig die Perspektive ändern müsst, auf der Übersichtskarte können keine Befehle erteilt werden, wichtige Geländedetails schwer zu erkennen, nur für Hardcore-Strategen und Berufssoldaten geeignet

  • Excerpt: För strategispelsfantaster Februari 1943. Den tyska armén i Stalingrad har gått under. Sovjets Röda armé rycker snabb framåt för att återta staden Charkiv – Charkov på ryska – i Ukraina. Men de har inte räknat med tyskarnas formidabla återhämtningsförmåga, och snart möter de tyska pansartrupper i en serie sammanstötningar kring staden. Anfallet har förvandlats till en försvarsstrid.

  • Conclusion: Wat hebben we nu eigenlijk reeds gezegd? Trage gameplay, middelmatige graphics, enkel noodzakelijk geluid, soms zwakke AI… Klinkt vrij negatief, maar als je echt een strategieliefhebber bent, kan je het misschien wel eens oppikken uit de budgetbak. Voor de fans van het genre valt er nog net genoeg plezier te halen!
