I like it so far. And enjoy more than Shadow Tactics.
Positive Sides:
Good map design. Build a base, do different missions, recruit new partisans.
I know Russian. This makes it more enjoyable for me while I am playing. Maybe if I didn't speak Russian, it wouldn't be that much fun. I don't know. Even if you won't play this game in Russian, make the subtitles english but audio in Russian.
Germans speak German and not British English. This may sound funny, but yeah. As you know most movies and games you watch, Germans speak with British accent lol. This makes it feel more authentic.
It doesn't make you feel stressed or doesn't feel like a grindy responsibility while you play. Just a nice game to play when you're bored.
Negative sides:
Didn't see any yet :)
Not very original but a well executed game.
Get it on sale
8.5/10

If you're a middle-aged gamer who played Commandos in his early game days, you'll enjoy playing this game too. It's pretty well made, has a lot of potential at times, but never really delivers. The skill trees are useless, plenty of Partisans joining your cause, but why bother using them if you have your 3 men maxxed out death squad? I'll give it a recommend, but please wait on a 50%+ sale to happen.

you can give a rifle to a 14 year old boy and order him to charge a fortified position, making this the most accurate ww2 game i've played

Review from Steam

All right, let's start with the good stuff:
- Carefully crafted, detailed and coherent maps.
- Diving into Russian resistance at the beginning of the war, rather rare in terms of WWII games.
- Russian voice-over can be selected, really nice touch.
- Pretty visuals and near excellent light/shadows processing.
- Several playable characters rather well written.
- Many partisan skills to unlock.
- Inventory micro management and equipment customisation.
- Camp management in between major operations, with a little bit of survival aspects and various tasks to attribute to your partisans for resources, equipment, moral and xp + taking into account the passing of seasons.
- Simple but great atmosphere and music, albeit a tad bit repetitive.
And now the bad stuff:
- HOLLY COW SO MANY BUGS. Few and barely a hassle at first, gets worse as I progress.
- A lack of optimisation regarding interactions with world items, loot, and bodies, which are either difficult or confusing to enable + unable to quick switch inventory slot and discard misc loot.
- Non coherent, unbalanced realism; enemies hear you in bushes and carrying bodies near them, but don't hear firearms and explosions 20 meters away (can't complain since I play on hardest difficulty with no manual saves, but it's so weird at times).
- AI sometimes brilliantly ruthless, sometimes quite stupid, sometimes... aloof.
So... I really like this game, a lot of care went into it, but the many bugs and a bad optimisation here and there would make me wish for a neutral vote, so to speak.

Pros:
+ actual game is very nice: plenty of tactical options from full stealth to full rambo (unless the mission prohibits the latter)
+ a bit of relaxed base building
+ good storyline, even though definitely heavily inspired by Soviet heroic movies. (think Soviet Marvel)
Cons:
- I think I found the absolute worst inventory interface of all time ever. The person who designed it clearly hates all humans and wants to punish them for playing this game.
- resource management went a bit too far, like, stones that you throw at people to distract them, are a precious limited resource.

Review from Steam

Partisans 1941 is a game set on the Eastern Front during WW2, where you have to control a partisan unit, disrupting the germans on their offensive.
Pros:
- About 15-20 hours to complete
- The storyline is what you expect from a game like this
- Every partisan has their own abilities and skillsets
- It's a good looking game
- Commandos style gameplay
- Animations are great
- You can go either stealth or guns blazing, but there are some missions where stealth is the only option
- Loot/inventory system
- You can upgrade your guns and craft items in the base, which I never did but it's there
- Difficult at times, Challenging
- Cutscenes are great
Neutral:
- There is a base system in the game where you have to send out your units to scavenge, harvest crops, do small operations, which is great, but felt kinda lackluster
Cons:
- Bugs are apparent
- Sometimes enemies just throw grenades through walls, bruh
- Performance isn't always really good, could've used some more optimization
- On most missions you can only have 3-4 of your partisans while leaving the other partisans back at the base and they will be just underused
9/10 Overall it's a great game about russian partisans and I haven't played a game where the focus was on partisans and because of that, it was a unique experience and I can recommend it. You'll have fun with it. Especially on a sale if you have nothing else to play.
