Summary: Good Game - Fun to play, but never seem to really grasp the calculations used to win fights between units... it seems some units can defeat other units too easily.... play with no roll option in skirmish section to see it you can figure it out. I have surrounded units with tanks and infantry and still can not defeat a unit, then a simple infantry unit will defeat a tank by itself. Difficult to use strategy when some interactions seems unrealistic ...
beautifully. I'm still working my way through the tutorials

Summary: I learned this type of game many years ago on Panzer '44 which was a board game played with a human opponent. I was hoping this game would emulate that one. It does, beautifully. I'm still working my way through the tutorials, and I couldn't be happier. The AI is tough, but not insurmountable. I anticipate many hours of involvement to come.
Did not run on Windows 8.1, trying to resulve the problem

Summary: I bought a new computer with Windows 8.1 operating system. I am a old player of the PG series and this looked great. Unfortunately, the disk would not run on Windows 8.1. The computer keeps spitting the disk out as unreadable. Tried it on my wife's computer, with Windows 7, and the disk functioned. The seller has been great in trying to resolve the issue. He is sending another copy, I will update the review when it comes in.
Summary: Just like everyone else said, it's just like PG2, which I loved so much. It is great to finally get to play this type of strategy game once again. I bought it online last night and I played every bit of 7 hours straight. The AI is better than PG2. I swept through Poland only to be stopped just short of taking France in the allotted time. I don't think this game has the "overrun" attack that PG2 had, and that was rather sad.
Summary: This is simple enough to pick up quickly and difficult enough to keep you engaged for hours. The only complaints I have with it would in the end ruin the simple side of it. You do not have to protect supply lines. The games I have played were you have to protect your supply lines get bogged down quickly with to much detail. This hits the right balance I feel.
Not quite as good as Panzer General but worth buying

Summary: I've been involved with wargaming for a long time. I'm going to date myself by mentioning that I bought and played Avalon Hill's Kriegspiel game. As someone who loved the Panzer General series because sometimes a good "beer and pretzel" game is just what you need, I was really looking forward to the Panzer Corps game. Having played it for awhile, it just doesn't match up in my opinion to PG.
