Graviteam Releases English Version of "Achtung Panzer Operation Star"

"Achtung Panzer Operation Star" is the sequel to "Kharkov 1943". Operation Star has been available in Russia for a year or so and now is out for the Euro/US market via Gamersgate.



I'm going to grab this one at a later time. I'm backlogged!

Cheers,

I got this one on release. I realy want to love this game as I think it has potential but I think the biggest drawback is the missing manual. There simply is none, only a Quick Guide and a quirky ingame Training mode. As I read on the Graviteam site they cant translate the russian manual. The ingame translation is also not the best. I also think the Infantry AI isnt good. When I set up an defense perimeter some guys start walking into the open but maybe Iam missing something, but ofcourse theres no manual. After fiddling around now for 2 days I noticed that I started giving up on this one. Shame as I think its potentialy good.

Hi Seydlitz,

Thanks for your comment. The language issue has been terrible for Kharkov 1943 too. That's an easy fix that I see they didn't care about. Hmmm ...

This is my favorite rts game for the Russian front.Sure it's difficult to learn but it's worth the effort.I love the idea that I don't have to micro manage every individual unit and the maps are large and well done(not cartoony)plus the fact there is an operations phase for campaigns that add a whole new dimension and perspective to economy of force and planning.If you haven't given this game a try and like tactical combat on the Russian front then you really are short changing yourself for not at least trying the demo.
