Summary: Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps is a difficult game, even when the finicky combat predictors are in line with the actual outcome. Given the increased pressure that the Allies were able to bring to bear on the DAK, this isn’t unexpected.
Conclusion: Panzer Corps is a wonderful tribute to the days of deep but easy to play wargames. Really, if you have ever wanted to get into wargaming but were scared off by the more hardcore fare out there, this is perfect opportunity.
Pros: Intuitive yet deep gameplay mechanics; units earn experience, medals and heroes, adding an addictive role-playing component to the game; comes with Slitherine’s excellent multiplayer service and a scenario editor.

Pros: Dynamic campaigns, Tense multiplayer tests your wits, Easy to learn, Engrossing Panzer General-style gameplay
