    Almost perfect WW2 turn-based strategy can claim to be a proud successor of the Panzer General classic. Turns and hexes are finally back – and with style.

    Once I start a scenario, I find it almost impossible to quit until I’ve seen it through to the end. Fast, approachable, and challenging, it is everything I want in a wargame.

    An incredibly deep and entertaining strategic game. It's got some limits in terms of budgets, but fans of the genre should definitely play it.

    Order of Battle: Pacific is a nice attempt to import Civilization V mechanics into a turn based war game.

    Order of Battle: Pacific is complex and deep, and delivers a good tactical experience. It can count on lots and lots of different units and troops, and a good representation of naval and aerial battles.

    The strategic aspect is deep enough to keep historic wargames fans busy for a long time.

    In terms of content, this is huge: 500 unit types. 20 specializations. Two campaigns. But when it comes to detail this feels ponderous and prudish despite giving you a lot of options on the battlefield.

    It's been years this I've found a wargame I really liked - in fact the last time I did it was Battle Isle on the Amiga. (25 years ago.)

    It's been years this I've found a wargame I really liked - in fact the last time I did it was Battle Isle on the Amiga. (25 years ago.)

    OOB is fun. There's a great variety of units; the controls are well thought out (A rarity for some reason in a TBW) and it's a pleasure to play. Instead of struggling with some arcane control system you can just concentrate on strategy. And there's a heap of depth here. Units can gain experience. Things done/not done in certain scenarios can carry over to later ones in the campaign. For example, in one campaign I won but did not finish destroying an enemy warship. The game informed me that the carrier will now spawn in the next scenario because it wasn't dead - so there are consequences for choices made, each scenario of a campaign is not played in vacuo. I really liked this. Victory objectives are achieved by capturing cities or destroying units earn you points with which you can buy more units. You can repair damaged units with fresh troops (lowering their experience) or seasoned ones, keeping their exp but costing you more replacement points.

    It reminds me a lot of Panzer General 2, only with better controls and graphics.

    I've never played any of the OOB games before yet in minutes I was able to get into it quickly, rather than slogging through a manual for hours. The tutorials are good; I've already completed the first three and only stopped to get on here and give a review.

    This is the most fun I've had with a wargame more more than 20 years - accessible, yet deep.

    On another note There's a review here by YoungBlood52 whinging about how Panzer General 2's graphics were better than this so I went and googled PG2. Very pastel graphics, much more so than this game, very limited colour palette. He doesn't seem to remember what PG2 *really* looked like. No wonder he can't find a game "like Panzer General 2". Because even PG2 wasn't as good as what he remembers. Nostalgia is deceptive.

    If you like turn based wargames, give this one a try.

It is fantastic that small independent developers can innovate and give us back our beer and nuts wargaming! Too bad Ubisoft sat on the IP for decades. Expand

    Game is very much like Panzer Corps or Panzer Korps just in reverse. You know PC starts out in Europe and goes to America, this starts out inGame is very much like Panzer Corps or Panzer Korps just in reverse. You know PC starts out in Europe and goes to America, this starts out in America and goes to Europe in DLC (money grab content). It's not very good and the AI is horrible. Fine if you want to waste your time against an opponent that will let you win if you got any brains at all. Sits there in a lot of scenario's never moving just totally a rock until you eliminate it. I suggest a no buy until all these wargame developers start making games with an actual AI that plays to defeat you. Expand
