The Wargamer - Matrix, Slitherine and the Lordz Games Studios have done a superlative job not only of reviving a classic but improving it while keeping the original feel.

No High Scores - Panzer Corps has been such a pleasant surprise as it’s brought back a flood of great memories of nights eschewing college partying in order to try and achieve a major victory in France or to capture Moscow.

Preview on gamershall.de (German): http://gamershall.de/index.php?p=articl ... anzercorps


In summary, it seems that The Lordz Games and Slitherine did everything right, because Panzercorps combines the strong points of the original Panzergeneral with the ease of modern convenience. If this first impression survives a second glance will be determined in a full review soon.

I've just found a review of Panzer Corps in German:

http://www.4players.de/4players.php/dis ... Corps.html

In the conclusion it says:
"A thoroughly well done and addictive remake of Panzer General - tactical, complex, very good!"

Congratulations and I'm really looking forward to playing this game!

Congratulations to the developer for the excellent Gamespot review. The score doesn't even reflect how good the review was.
