Description

Phase Two of the Codename: Panzers series is a real-time strategy game with three campaigns set during World War II. The campaigns follow the Axis movements in North Africa, the Allied counter-offensive in Italy, and post-war combat in Yugoslavia.

Following Phase One, this outing is once again a tactical game rather than a resource management one. Panzers has a full complement of experience gaining troops as well as a variety of armor, aircraft, and artillery which are fully destructible as are the buildings.

Phase Two contains three full single player campaigns and several multiplayer options playable via LAN, Internet, or GameSpy.

Trivia

Manual

There is a mistake in the introduction of Farvan "the Wolf" Pondurovic in the manual.

In Codename: Panzers - Phase One, Pondurovic was captured by Hans von Gröbel. On the way to the prison the convoy was attacked by partisans and the truck carrying Pondurovic was hit multiply times. It skidded into the roadside ditch and exploded seconds before Pondurovic could escape into safety. This means he must be dead...
