An absolute "must-have" wargame!
Steel Panthers has been on my 'puters since the earliest version was released by SPI, and to date, it is still the ONLY regimental scale tactical wargame in existance covering every major combatant in the world.
Other firms carried the torch for a while and continued to support the game, but only Shrapnel (thru the Camo Workshop) has continued to make the improvements necessary to allow the game to run on current systems.
I have a Windows 7 platform, quad core, 4 gig ram 'CPU and have had no problems.
Wonderful improvements on this version include the ability to "back up"(not exposing your weak armor), and armor crews popping defensive smoke, which will save many a crew to fight another day, are only some of the more obvious improvements.
Much research has gone into making an accurate set of OOB's, and the game really portrays the combat enrionment of the day very well.
I am very grateful to both Shrapnel and the Camo Workshop for keeping this greatest of all tactical WW2 wargames not only alive, but still a major competitor on the gaming circuit.
If you don't already have it and you are interested in that war, and this scale, you owe it to yourself to acquire it, if not for the game, surely for the OOB encyclopedia which comes with it.
The game comes with an editor!
