Panzer General: Allied Assault Review

IGN Entertainment

  • Conclusion: Combined, these three types of cards might see you sneaking in early bombing runs to surprise your foes, sending in flanking snipers while your tanks plow head-on, or simply boosting your offenses and defenses during battle. Of course, you can’t just toss out cards willy-nilly and hope for the best. Playing them will deplete your Prestige points—valuable currency won on the battlefield—so you’ll need to plan each move very carefully.

  • Conclusion: Those, like myself, who have a fever, a fever for more strategy games. If you have the fever, and haven't felt it cooled in a while, I'd say give Panzer General a chance. For the ten dollar price tag you'll receive lengthy single player content, good unlockables, in the form of cards for your multiplayer deck, and a solid, albeit slow, multiplayer experience.

Panzer General: Allied Assault - 360 - Review

GameZone
3 November 2009
  • Excerpt: In the early days of the Xbox Live Marketplace, we were treated to a number of high-quality “video-game board games”. No, not Sorry! and Mousetrap, but the strategic classics like Carcassonne, Catan, and even UNO. In recent years those types of releases have been few and far between, but if Panzer General: Allied Assault is any indication there's still a lot untapped potential left in the genre.

Panzer General: Allied Assault Review

GameSpot
27 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Panzer General: Allied Assault is not the game that you might remember. The beer-and-pretzels SSI wargame from the 1990s has been revived in name only for Xbox Live Arcade by Petroglyph Games, returning to life a decade after the fact as a card-based game. So although old-timers may initially be disappointed at not finding the turn-based strategizing and hexes of the original franchise, they should stick around for the game's captivating matches set during the closing...
  • Pros: Simple, elegant card-based battle system, Strategic depth provided through card variety, support rules, and terrain effects, Lengthy campaign
  • Cons: Somewhat repetitious, A little sluggish due to too many "do this" prompts and unskippable animations

  • Excerpt: At first glance, Panzer General: Allied Assault looks a bit like a glorified Stratego. After a few minutes, it begins to look more like a wartime collectible-card game than the classic board game. But after a few hours, it starts to look more and more like our next tactical addiction.
  • Pros: + Wonderfully deep gameplay underneath layers of complexity., + Huge amount of variety in both cards and maps.
  • Cons: - Steep learning curve., ? Why not use those gigantic dice to crush your opponents?
