Review by unknown author

this is a great game.. I have used this site offend to play.. thanks.. but its incomplete. there is a lot you cannot do. like attack u.s.a.. or play as allies.. matter of fact allied general is worse for left out coding. thanks again for this site.

Review by unknown author

Excellent game in its day. Bought it and later Panzer General 2. Great to be able to play it again. As a review pointed out no counter attack etc. Neither does chess.

Review by Michael Ruger

People who slag this game off as a poor tactical game didn't do their research. At the time of this game's release there were plenty of grognard level war games put out by SSI and others. The whole point of Panzer General and the (insert adjective here) General series was to create a faster moving war that could bring in new players and a quicker game.  This game does exactly what it was designed to do and does it so well that it inspired direct sequels and host of followup games (Fantasy General, Star General, etc)  as well.

When you review things without the context, you are doing gamers and the game a disservice. It was designed for a specific purpose and does it well.  It's like reviewing a hammer and downgrading it because it's not a screwdriver.

  8/9/2018 10:57:00 PM - Grant Contains network interface in config file and Windows .dlls it shouldn't have - smells like malware.
1   3/15/2017 7:06:00 PM - Rommel Best game ever,even today What was the hardest scenario for you ? For me it's Norway, all that damn rain bogs you down and won't let you bomb plus their Navy is a bitch to destroy
  11/10/2016 5:50:00 AM - Trial and error. So remember u need cannons, recon vechiles, strongest tanks, airborne inf x2, air power most important. and then you can at least stand 1/2 a chance of losing gracefully. Thn you will get " YOUR SERVICES ARE NO LONGER NEEDED " and then you will hear the Pistol being cocked before you are excuted.

Go to WinRar and highlight all the files you downloaded-then click Extract to and find your new folder on your desktop. #1-you should see new icon for Dosbox. #2-open your new folder and find the START file. Drag this file into Dosbox icon.
