Loved your review of Achtung Panzer Kharkov '43 -- hope you will get to Op. Star as well!
Thanks! I will get Op. Star and review it sometime this month.
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.
