From the Manufacturer

No, this can't be! Initial outpost reports showed only armored infantry, but some serious hardware is headed this way! How could two 70-ton German Königstiger battle tanks simply be overlooked?!

Whether played in towns with bullet-riddled buildings, bleak mountain landscapes, or treacherous swamps, Codename: Panzers offers real-time combat rampages with awesome 3D graphics. Create your combat force from over 100 finely detailed units, from a flame-throwing squad to a Soviet Stalin organ rocket launcher to a German Königstiger battle tank.

Ingredients:
1 cup Blitzkrieg
2 tsp A Bridge Too Far
Mixed statistics and HE shells
Big dollop of history
For anyone who ever wanted to click their way through World War 2, this latest real-time-strategy game from CDV may be just the thing. Players take on the role of German, British, American and Russian commanders, boldy leading platoons of little polygonal troops to death or glory. And it's really rather cool, n'all.
Viewed from above the battlefield, players can rotate, pan and tilt the camera to get the best view of the action, zooming out for a wider look at the field, or zooming in to watch individual soldiers take aim. 'Panzers boast an impressive variety of units, all highly detailed and distinctive, so you'll have no trouble telling them apart once things get frantic. Its quite a thrill to see infantry squads taking cover behind meticulously modeled walls and hedgerows, machine gun crews going prone and setting up their weapon bipods and the grit and decals clearly visible on armored units.
Like CDV's other RTS, Blitzkrieg, players must carefully manage and defend their units, since every squad that survives the mission will be carried forward to the next battle. In addition, battle-hardened troops gain experience that boosts their accuracy and mobility, so it's worth playing smart. To bolster your ranks you can purchase additional troops or vehicles before each mission. The game currency is 'prestige', earned principally by completing missions. It's possible to recieve a prestige bonus by completing a mission with few casualties, inflicting lots of damage on your foes or by finishing in record time, and there is immense replay value in trying to gain maximum points.

Codename: Panzers is a nice break from the traditional build-and-destroy RTS games. It's an action-oriented strategy game, ignoring all aspects of economy and focusing on the strategy and tactics of warfare. This game delivers on its gameplay promises and then some.

The presentation of this game is simply astounding. There has never been a RTS game with as lush and immersive visuals as this game. It features a fully-3D environment with highly detailed environments and units. The level of detail and interactivity is impressive. Trees waver in the wind and can be knocked down by your tanks or artillery fire and power lines can be broken and knocked down. Explosions and special effects are done well and realistic and the level designs and textures are fantastic. The developers wasted no expense in making the levels as accurate as possible, mimicking german towns or russian cities down to the last detail. It really helps to create an immersive environment and it truly does feel like you're back in 1939, whether in wide-open fields or in bombed-out cities. The audio is also well-incorporated and you can literally feel the blast of artillery fire as it rips through the battlefield. The sound of advancing enemy tanks also helps create a feeling of tension before each major battle.

The units were also great and varied. The tanks are modelled well and are accurate for the most part and the infantry are highly-specialized, ranging from riflemen to mortar teams to flamethrowers. There are a lot of different strategies and tactics you can adopt for any given situation, making the game more than just a run-and-shoot game. Tank blitzes are always fun but you can also choose to bombard enemies from long range with siege weapons or soften them up with bombing runs.

As a long time wargamer (I've been involved in the hobby more than 30 years), I've come to appreciate a wide range of games. In the end, "is it fun?" should be the most important question asked, and Codename Panzers responds with a resounding "yes!"

While there is something to be said for hardcore simulations and games that stick to the historical record on every details, such games can be a chore to play and beyond the opening setup, one really isn't replicating history anyway. Of all the computer wargames I've played (and I've played almost all of them over the years), my favorite was probably the highly-abstracted, "lite" wargame, Panzer General by SSI.

Codename: Panzers has a number of elements that bring back fond memories of this old classic. As one moves through the campaigns, "prestige" earned by winning battles can be spent to purchase more troops for one's force. Units that acquit themselves well in battle earn experience, making them more effective in combat. While it is most definitely a strategy game, these elements help develop an attachment to particular troops not unlike characters in an RPG. Finally, the player's alter-ego can earn medals by accomplishing his missions well.

Graphically, the game looks terrific. Codename: Panzers is among the games defining the new standard in graphical excellence when it comes to realtime strategy games. Virtually everything in the environment is destructable, adding greatly to the immersion factor that provides a compelling cinematic experience.

The missions, not unlike Panzer General, start easy and progressively become more difficult. Early on, one can get by using armor alone, but as the missions become more complex, combined arms operations are needed.
