Survival is key as you defend positions across hazardous terrain, attack villages, protect convoys & experience the full sweep of tank battle between 1942 and 1944.

Review

What we have here is a highly realistic war simulation game. But perhaps a little too realistic to have any fun playing the game. Armored tanks in real life move incredibly slowly and unfortunately for game players alike so do the armored tanks in Panzer Elite making it impossible to get any flow going in the game.

Not all is lost as they should be commended for their attention to detail. They have gone as far as to include some really neat features such as: Individually modeled ballistics for every weapon, detailed damage model allows for over 30 components to receive accurate in-game damage, 80 scenarios based on real battles from 1942-1944 in Europe & North Africa, command more then 100 different vehicles, including the German Tiger & American Sherman tanks.
