  • Summary: Winter, 1942 - Germany's 6th Army is surrounded and trapped in Stalingrad. Their supplies are short, their mobility limited, and Soviet attacks probe their lines on a daily basis. In a desperate and ill-conceived plan, Germany would attempt to rescue the 6th Army by advancing seventy-five miles in the winter starting with only two Panzer Divisions. Welcome to the setting of Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm, a new 3D tactical wargame which combines a historical campaign with highly detailed models of both units and terrain and realistic gameplay.

  1. Loses in almost every aspect to old Combat Mission 2. Having a campaign mode does not cure the general mediocrity and the irritating UI deficiencies. [Sept 2006]
  2. Unless you're already wrung every last drop of fun out of the outstanding "Combat Mission" trilogy (unlikely), I wouldn't bother braving this Winter Storm. [Oct 2006, p.87]
  3. As it stands, it's an almost-there game that you can't stop playing in the hope that it eventually gets better. It doesn't, but that might change if developer Koios Works goes back to the drawing board in a few areas. [Nov. 2006, p.76]
