    Tannenberg takes what made Verdun fun, and improves upon what made it awesome. The new environments in particular really make the potential of a WWI FPS/Simulator really stand out and stick with memorable moments that last long after a match is over. The developers proved themselves with their support of Verdun over time, which gives me reason to believe that Tannenberg is only going to get better from here.

    M2H and Blackmill Games have executed their concept so well that the most glaring criticism is that there is not more. With such good a foundation as Verdun, it would have been nice to see a greater variety of maps, or perhaps even some different objective based modes. While it should be noted that fans of run and gun in faster-paced shooters may be frustrated with the game’s more methodical pacing, Tanneberg is a satisfying tactical shooter.

    The overall experience with Tannenberg is great. Their downfall right now is low player population especially on the US servers. The saving grace is the locale can be changed and the EU server is usually loaded with players. This of course increases the response time if within the US but is barely noticeable. Another downfall is the lack of differentiation in weaponry for the class selections. It is difficult to tell which set of weapons to choose from which boils down to trial, error, and preference. It's not the end of the world but it would be nice to see stats before making a selection. Anyone remotely interested in a fresh authentic take on a World War series should give Tannenberg a chance.

    Tannenberg is more accessible and has a greater fun factor than you might expect from a realism-driven World War 1 shooter, thanks to a great central game mode and consistently exciting and satisfying gameplay. Though you’ll need to be on board with bolt-action rifles and accept that you are going to die a lot.

    If you're looking for a first-person shooter that is slightly different from the standard run of the mill FPS, Tannenberg is the way to go. Gameplay, the feel of the guns and map choice is all solid and makes for a great experience, but Tannenberg is held back by its lack of players and a mediocre class system.

    Although it deserves recognition for its attempt to be historically faithful, for hardcore damage mechanics and good combat dynamic, Tannenberg is also a little disappointing: weapons are more or less the same, unlocks lack impact, and class division is basically pointless. [Issue#236, p.38]

    Like Verdun, also Tannenberg is a good historical FPS set during the WW1, but there is already a lack of players.

    An intense and authentic World War 1 shooter with emphasis on caution, tactics and team coordination. Unfortunately, it’s never going to win any beauty contests, and then there’s the real elephant in the room - sparsely populated servers.

    Calling Tannenberg a historical online FPS would mean trying to categorize it by genre, but as an experience, it belongs to that category of games that will never see the same success as the giants in the industry, but for the select few that love the historical accuracy and setting, it will become the go-to FPS. With a few patches here and there and maybe a better advertisement campaign, the game may even manage to fill up with enough players as to no longer need the bot auto-fill system.

    Tannenberg is a good FPS in general that has things to say in World War 1's not so busy market, and it can even satisfy fans of realistic shooters too. However, some technical and design issues prevent the game from reaching its full potential.

    Tannenberg is a good WWI FPS online, but actually there aren't enough players on the servers.

    Tannenberg shows a good balance between historic realism and gameplay fun, but it feels a bit too light. The multiplayer shooter does not really innovate and its visuals are not amazing either.

    Tannenberg is by no means a bad game. That being said, I can't recommend it for the sheer fact that the player count is far too low. The audience for this game is split with Verdun, its predecessor, and there simply isn't enough here to make playing it the clear choice.

    Why would someone in their right mind spend time and money on exploring Tannenberg? If you want to play a first-person shooter about WWI, just pick up Battlefield 1 with the season pass.

    Tannenberg has authenticity in spades. Sadly, middling animations, unreliable AI, and uninspiring combat sully what could've been a remarkable experience.

    A game with big potential. Very innovative game in Eastern front. It's more funny with friends.

    Lo bueno es que la muerte acecha en cada rincón de esta atmósfera, tanto para el jugador como para sus rivales. Al igual que sucede con Battlefield 1, es fácil morir si uno es un recién llegado. Pero, a diferencia del título de EA, también es sencillo hacerse con las primeras kills. Luego, llega la complejidad de dominar las situaciones y comprender el uso de las armas hacen de este FPS una entretenida opción para descargar adrenalina.
