Achtung Panzer: Operation Star really is a gem, especially for the addicted wargamer. The concept of the game and its immersion is quite astounding. Although the game suffers from a few shortfalls, a few bugs here and there. But a few bugs are expected upon initial release, so I’m looking forward to the first patch release. Though, there are some problems that may require a little bit more than just a fix. These include a dumbfounded AI and a simplistic—kind of limited—HUD that could use a couple extra buttons and better text pop-up descriptions. Sounds were mediocre at times and didn’t have much variety to them, making the sound redundant. The game has a lot of potential, if these little issues were addressed. I do see a lot of attention being drawn not just from Matrix Games, but from the community—such as mods and GUI fixes. Other than that, Achtung Panzer: Operation Star can be addicting for any historical wargamer as long as they have a little patience.
