Every 3D model in the game is carefully crafted and animated. In no other wargame you will find so many historical equipment from the Second World War!

Interesting and difficult for mr on normal level. Stayed up all night playing it! Stupid for me as I'm 76 years old! thought I was going to die! Keep up the good work!

Review from Steam

Almost gave a thumbs down just because after I took over Moscow and Britain I was the greatest commander ever and praise was showered upon my tactical genius. Then I conquered America and nothing, not a peep, just exits to menu... If that is not the definitive example of an anticlimax I don't know what is.

Review from Steam

Despite the store page saying the game is not supported on Steam Deck it actually works flawlessly. No idea who was doing the testing but they got this one waaaaaaayyyyyyy wrong. Obviously not as easy as with a mouse but you can easily map all the shortcuts to the buttons and it’s a surprisingly good way to play it on the move.
Panzer Corp 1 also works flawlessly.

Review from Steam

But, my recommendation is tempered with a hope that the Developers read this and look towards implementing the most important aspect to me of any Panzer Corps game, the OTHER SIDE. Please, please let us play as the Allies and Soviets. It's so crucial and I hope you guys get with it soon.

Review from Steam

So here it is. i have read some of these reviews. The fact is, you either like hex based strategy games or you don't. We all have our favourite genre. I have played Panzer Corps since it's early beginnings. This edition is brilliant. This game is played because you have an interest in WWII and warfare. You like planning and strategy. Sure, the AI is sometimes overkill. But the games designers have to compensate for your powers of undo and replaying saves. It's a genuine joy to play. The graphics are detailed, the storyline immersing and it makes you think like a General. Like a Panzer General... Highly recommend

Review from Steam

I have played and finished all of PC1 and its DLCs and all of OOB and its DLCs so this for me was the next step. For me this does not disappoint, the modern (graphics and play wise) successor to the old SSI Panzer General.
The basic game is fun if a bit short but lots of options, the DLCs are fantastic in my view, it does take some getting used to in particular planes as they are completely different to all previous hex based turn based war games. I actually like the SCW DLC and its unique way of commanding auxiliary units, and 1939 the new style of mission in Czechoslovakia and some of the following missions have interesting objectives
Overall it may be a bit expensive particularly with the DLCs but with well over 1100 hours played can't complain.
There are some fantastic MODs in the workshop as well including a PC1 variant which I would highly recommend with some great alt history options
If you like this style of game this is far and by the best available now and puts others to shame now.

Review from Steam

This closest analogy for this game I have (never played PzC1) is XCOM but this is more like XCOM on steroids.
I find it far more engaging and fun over OOB for example, which is not a bad game in any sense.
It doesn't have a massive learning curve like HOI4 but checking out a few tutorial videos on youtube will help immensely - I've also reset a couple of campaigns mid-way back in the low 10's of hours (600+ as of writing) but once you understand you can start playing around with various strategies, approaches, unit composition, challenges, buff/nerfs etc.
Seeing some of the other reviews it's worth pointing out (May 2022) the main campaign and the Grand campaign in Axis Ops follows exclusively Germany (duh.. PANZER CORPS?). There is Pacific due soon which will add US and IJA/N campaigns later. You can play single scenarios with other nations but if you want their campaigns OOB is the way to go.
All of that being said the main campaign is lots of fun and also offers historical and ahistorical outcomes, as well as optional paths for which battles you will participate in. Axis Operations started on a rocky start personally I've never finished SCW to the end, 1939 can get sloggish, but with 1940 and by now 1943 it's far improved and loads of fun. I'm sure these will keep getting better as more come out. And at ~8 EUR for ~15 hours to experience every scenario once in an AO the DLC is definitely worth it. (I'd skip SCW but that's just me, since then there is a no ally AI mod which helps)
I've only ever had a few crashes that required a re-install a year ago, otherwise the game runs ok - my mid-range laptop runs is perfectly fine on adjusted high settings but some framedrop is to be expected in larger scenarios if you fast forward the enemy turn with dozes of units and during load-ins. Nothing ever as severe as 'some' Total War titles.
Overall it's an excellent game with fun mechanics, just enough flavour in terms of background 'story', and a wide variety of units, tweaks, strategies, paths, and approaches to explore - highly recommended
