    The game doesn't do anything that is particularly special even if it has most of the bases covered.

    Effectively dodges dull micromanagement in pushing faster tactical action, but it still throws some sticks in the spokes of smooth gameplay. [Feb 2003, p.81]
  3. Unfortunately, Panzer Claws' skirmish mode doesn't offer much in the way of new thrills, and to date [11/26/02] there are hardly any players playing the game online.

    It is a decent effort to bring the RTS setting to the battlefields of Europe during World War II, yet it doesn't compare to such similar themed titles as "Combat Mission" or "Close Combat."

Drawbacks include inaccurate hit points on units and cpu tactical and strategic doctrines compared to real live battles. Full Review »

It is true, you have to really understand WW2 to get alot out of this game. PLEASE PEOPLE THINK BEFORE RATING. The only reason it's a 9 is becuase the AI is sometimes stupid.(e.g sending waves of soldirs into my mg's.) All in all this is a very underapriciated, solid game Full Review »
