Go for the Gold edition and you literally get thousands of hours of fun. (No kidding.)

Panzer Corps is more of an old-school game in the sense that its graphics are a bit less flashy and it does not do the OoB supply line thing. However, unit detail is great and especially mission design is one of its strong suits. (I still consider it superior in immersion to OoB, but those are just my two cents.) It also does branching campaigns and you can actually win the war for the Reich.
Summing up, worth a look and with the Gold Edition you won't actually need any second game. 8)

Well, what about the Army Group Centre from January 1942 to December 1943?
Do you think that nothing happening there during this period?
I would like to play battle of Demyansk or bloody repulse Zhukov Offensive at Rzhev. :wink:

I don't forgot about Army center :). I thought eventually to make campaign for Army north and center as one but maybe you have right to put another campaign for amry center but...I think that maybe this resolution on the map is maybe to complicate? maybe one big campaign on the east front (including Army south, Center and North) will be more optimal? what do you think?

I think you can connect the North and Centre but South should have a separate campaign.

You can certainly upgrade your panzers as you go, and with the new import tool you'll be able to carry over your units from one campaign to the next.

The goal is to allow you to play your own Wehrmacht from 1939 to 1945.
Hey alberto! Im testing import of core force. Import form the Morning Sun t othe Rising Sun and my commanders from the Morning Sun campaign are dissapeard!! Please answer why...
