Panzer Corps: Allied Corps – PC Game Review

Armchair General
2 January 2014
  • Excerpt: In Panzer Corps: Allied Corps players assume the role of Western Allied force commanders to defeat the Axis in Africa and Europe. It gives gamers familiar with Panzer Corp s a new view of the war as they command their tanks, infantry, artillery, and air units through five campaigns starting in Africa and ending after the D-Day invasion. Allied Corps is both an expansion for owners of Panzer Corps and a standalone for new players.
  • Pros: Intuitive gameplay. AI puts up a good fight. Provides the “one more turn” addiction during gameplay. Potentially high replay value with scenario editor.
  • Cons: Title is misleading (no Soviets); however this isn’t a major issue. Price is a little high for 5 campaigns (30 scenarios).

Panzer Corps: Grand Campaign ’45 West – PC Game Review

Armchair General
9 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Panzer Corps: Grand Campaign ’45 West is a fun, quick and easy to learn, but hard to master, light PC strategy game. The game depicts the Wehrmacht ‘s fight against the Western Allies in late 1944 and early 1945. The followup to Grand Campaign ’44 West , it is the latest, indeed the final, installment of the downloadable content (DLC) expansion packs to the venerable Panzer Corps game.
  • Pros: Easy to learn but still challenging, great replay value, low cost.
  • Cons: Low historical veracity, inflexible linked scenario system, standard NATO unit symbols not available.

  • Excerpt: The Panzer Corps Grand Campaign DLC series (and your German Army if you’ve been carrying since Poland) has finally reached its conclusion with the release of Grand Campaign ’45 West. GC ’45 West is the tenth DLC expansion, arriving just almost a year and a half after the first release of the DLC line with GC ’39.

Panzer Corps: Grand Campaign ’44 West – PC Game Review

Armchair General
24 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Slitherine’s Panzer Corp Wehrmacht represented a rejuvenation of the classic “lite” wargame, Panzer General . This refurbishing alone is worth applauding, but the publisher has taken the system one step further by breaking the campaigns in the base game into “Grand Campaigns” featuring a number of scenarios on a topic that was covered by one scenario in the base game.
  • Pros: Simple interface, interesting scenarios, nice graphics
  • Cons: Abstract history, linked scenarios, manual needs an addendum for changes

  • Excerpt: Panzer Corps Grand Campaign ’42 – ’43 West is the latest $5 campaign download in the Panzer Corps series.  The earlier releases were either the earliest years of World War 2 or were focused on the Eastern Front.  The ’42-’43 West is the first campaign focusing on the Western Front.  This game can be purchased either as a direct download or as a disk copy for an additional fee.  The game requires either Panzer Corps or Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps to play.

Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps – PC Game Review

Armchair General
1 November 2012
  • Pros: A stable expansion to the Panzer Corps universe. Decent additions to AI, terrain, and unit diversity.
  • Cons: Debatable that the new features warrant the price tag. Difficulty levels make the game too hard or too easy. Earning supply/prestige by capturing objective hexes unrealistic.

Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps

The Wargamer
3 October 2012
  • Conclusion: I have been playing this game since it landed on my hard drive. I find myself looking for a different strategy every time. The new dynamic scenarios make things much more interesting, adding an element not found in many other strategy games. This certainly represents the mobile and back-n-forth characteristics of the World War 2 North African Campaign. It doesn't feel like you're forced to play in the scripted way either. You still have options in how to proceed.

  • Excerpt: While the epic battles of the Eastern Front, such as Kursk, Stalingrad, Kharkov, are favorites to many World War II gamers, I tend to like the maneuver and thrust of the North African Campaign of 1941 – 1943. Not to mention Field Marshall Erwin Rommel, the legendary "Desert Fox", is one of my favorite German generals. So I was more than enthused to review the latest installment of Panzer Corps, the spiritual successor to Panzer General; Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps.
