    This is an incredibly fun game, but it's mostly stolen from an earlier series, and it's too expensive.

    Hexagonal turn-based strategy at its best. But is a remake of a 10-year-old classic Panzer General all we can hope for if we look for quality? [Issue#208]

    This is a no excuses remake of panzer general. Apart from the obviously enhanced graphics it is about 98% identical to the original game.This is a no excuses remake of panzer general. Apart from the obviously enhanced graphics it is about 98% identical to the original game.

    Is this bad? No it's awesome, Panzer General did not need "fixing" it just needed re releasing.!

    The 2% that has changed has changed for the good. An example, if you surround an opponents unit with several of your own units who have still got their shooting action for the turn left, you get a bonus when you attack. In the old panzer general you had to attack with one, then another then another, with no benefit for each attack. Although you still launch the attacks separately you get a bonus for each neighbouring unit, making outflanking and swamping that really tough enemy unit a viable (and realistic) tactic.

    If you were a panzer general fan then I would say it is a no brainer, you MUST buy this game. If you are not ancient enough to have played the original game and are looking for a really interesting strategic WW2 game then look no further...

    This game is art, it's a wonderful recreation of a classic game! It is so addictive that I go into a trance when I play. I highly recommendThis game is art, it's a wonderful recreation of a classic game! It is so addictive that I go into a trance when I play. I highly recommend this game to all gamers and just because it's turn based doesn't mean it's rubbish.
    Trust me go to Slitherine or Matrix Games websites and buy this baby.
