Panzer Front (パンツァーフロント Pantsā Furonto) is a World War II tank simulation game developed by ASCII, Soyuz, and Shangri-La, and published by Enterbrain in Japan, by Agetec in the US, and by JVC in Europe.

An updated version, Panzer Front bis., was released in Japan in February 2001 for PlayStation.

A PlayStation 2 sequel set in North Africa, Panzer Front Ausf. B, would be released in Japan in 2004 and in Europe and Australia in 2006.

Plot

The game's main mode has players commanding one of six fictional armored vehicles (two types, a tank and a self-propelled gun, for each side; the U.S., the Soviet Union, or Nazi Germany) in historical battles such as the Battle of Kursk or the Falaise Pocket in both the Western and Eastern Fronts from 1941 to 1945.

Why It Rocks

  1. Incredibly realistic gameplay.
  2. Lots of armored vehicles to choose from.
  3. The fictional tanks and SPG's all have cool designs.
  4. Challenging difficulty.
  5. Historically accurate battles.
  6. The game's tactics mode allows you to not only play all of the game's missions but also edit them to a limited extent.
  7. Adequate graphics by 1999 standards.
  8. Great soundtrack that featured real-life and historical military marches such as the Germans' Panzerlied and the Soviets' Sacred War.
  9. bis. adds more features to the game, such as a story mode, more missions, more vehicles, and a more advanced level editor.

The Only Bad Quality

  1. The PS1 version has inferior graphics when compared to the Dreamcast version.
