Still works! Great game
21 August 2014
Summary: Played the game a long time ago when it first came out, and wanted to play it again on my new windows 8 PC notebook. Had to install a couple patches but that process was very easy to and installation was fast. I love this game, delivery was fast and the game was in great condition for being used.
Summary: The whole thing comes across as very bland, claustrophobic and by the numbers. Naturally- it doesn't give me the same sense of control (or complete lack of) that the Men of War series does. Maybe I just really don't dig this kind of gameplay, but even just looking at the few opening missions it makes you wonder how you're supposed to keep track of all your units to begin with. The The whole thing comes across as very bland, claustrophobic and by the numbers.
Summary: Panzers: Phase One is indescribably awesome. The graphics are the best a third-person game can get: moving tracks, rolling road wheels, swivelling turrets and even muzzle recoil that rocks the vehicle back and forth!!! Tank and vehicle colours are very accurate and appealing complete with tiny division or unit symbols. One small inaccuracy is the numerous amount of rounds you have to fire before destroying an enemy tank.
Summary: I puchased this game for only $2 on Amazon...what a bargain! After reading the reviews, I had to purchase it. I've played many WW II strategy games, but none come close to Codename: Panzers. I was truly impressed with how simplistic, yet detailed the maps were. The amount of troops, armor, and artillery are quite impressive. They are historically accurate, in action and appearance.
Summary: While it's no Company of Heroes (my current favorite WWII RTS game), it is quite good and very enjoyable. Graphics are good, though not up to COH standards. The missions were pretty hard (especially towards the end), but not impossible.
