Panzer general vs. Perfect general

Post by maclic » Thu Jun 21, 2007 7:28 pm

I almost finish the campain mode in the Perfect General. I like strategy games so I found the Perfect genenal very fun. I have not played Panzer general but I was wondering how good it is, or wich one is better? Is there someone who has played both games?

if they are anything like warcraft2/starcraft/command & conquer

Third World War was a cross between an RTS and a 'business-sim"

Panzer General is a more straight forward strategy game. The biggest up is there are alot more vehicles and the maps are bigger. The interface needs work.

Perfect General was ok, but not thrilling and pretty easy by comparison. The light-hearted comedy scenes and MST3K level bad acting make this game endearing. (and to think this is the reason why I own plumbers don't wear ties. I mailed away the card "buy this game, get PDWT free!"... I want my stamp back!)

I've never played either of these. :shock:

So I've just bought them both on eBay. I tried a version I (ahem) found on the web (just lying around) but without instructions ....

Are they any good?

These are a Turn Based Strategy games, like advance wars for gameboy advance. They are not as friendly and polished as actual TBS but perfect general was a lot of fun for me. By the way, PG has some minigames, some of them use the light gun.

Perfect General has ridiculously cheesy FMV's <3

Wait, really? And is "PG" Panzer General or The Perfect General?

While I'm asking, is The Perfect General really made by the same people who did Plumbers Don't Wear Ties, or is it just a publishing/distribution thing? Seems weird that the Plumbers team were capable of making an actual game.

These games were not released in Japan.
(It seemed to have the release plan from the maker.)

I want to play once・・・
(Oh! But ・・ where I cannot understand English) :(
Because I make a note using translation software, I think that it becomes a poor English sentence.
I'm sorry.

If there is rude expression, please point it out.
Thanking you in advance.

These games would be very difficult to play if you don't understand english i think.. Much like there is a ton of japanese exclusives for the super nintendo and also the 3DO that i want to check out, but can't since my japanese skill is non existent.
