Panzerfront - Barbarossa 1941-1945 (PC)

This was an unexpected find. Besides Panzer Front, Panzer Front Bis and Panzer Front Ausf.B, I wasn’t aware of any further games with that name. But rather than Enterbrain, this game is made by Ice Bytes Game Development. So it’s Panzer Front in name only. As it came out in 2006, the graphics are obviously much better than the PS1 games.

Other than that, you get a choice of only two tanks, a T-34 if you playing the Soviet side and a Panzerkampfwagen IV for the German forces. Tiger tanks are also mentioned in the game’s coding, but do not seem to be playable.

There are only six missions for each side, making twelve in total. These are all easily accessed by using a hex editor on two files in the game’s main directory. No multiplayer option seems to be available, which is very unusual for a game from this era.

The arcade gameplay is okay, but overall, the game is fairly limited. The Playstation titles are still way more preferable, blocky graphics notwithstanding. For those of you who are curious, here's an appropriately-titled video.
