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.
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.
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.
