Another great review. Congrats guys! Hey, if you want to convert that so you can add it to the OP, it scored a 13 out of a 15 point scale which equates to about 87%.

I fully agree.
Although I replay the scenarios again and again i don't get bored.
I think this is due to the nearly perfect game mechanics.

For me one on the best games in this year.
Off Topic: Shogun 2 Total War was for me a huge disappointment. :twisted:

Here's another review that I ran across that even has a quote from Ian McNeil. It looks like they use a 5 point scale so 4/5 or 80%. Only odd thing is that it shows a 2010 release date?

" .. an ideal recommendation to those who are new to the series, and can approach it like a completely new game."
" .. with all its weaknesses, Panzer General is still one hell of a great game, and this one is no less."

Just received the October issue of PC Gamer magazine, and PzC received an 81% rating. The game managed to get a full-page review, which is quite an achievement for an independent wargame (usually full pages are reserved for more mainstream games). The reviewer summed up that Panzer Corps is an excellent introduction into wargaming. Kudos to the PzC devs for another positive review. :)
