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.
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.
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: If you're in love with first person shooters, and dazzling graphics, this wouldn't be for you. But I was very much in love with Panzer General back in the 90s. This is the inheritor of that game's beauty for me. It's a hex game with representations of the units, and you can fight from Poland, to Norway, the west, maybe invade England, or Greece, and the Russian front. You could even invade the U.S. No North Africa, unless you were to build it. This is a great game.
Summary: It's not often an old game like Panzer General gets revived at all, let alone successfully. The developers at Lordz / Slitherine did a great job. If you're into turn based strategy games, this is for you. If you have played Panzer General before, you will love this game.
