Seriously, I remember playing that game for Playstation original, it was so awesome. If anyone doesn't know what it is, it is a realistic WW2 combat game, I think it was turn based. You had to build units and move them around and combat the nazis or whatever. Anyways, I saw it was out for PC (1997) So that is way too old of a game for me. SO if anyone knows a game LIKE Panzer General, or Advance Wars for GBA, which was slightly similar and lots of fun, please let me know! I don't like futuristic stuff, and I prefer good graphics/newer games. Please post a game if you know one like Panzer General!

Seriously, though, I'm afraid that turn-based games have largely fallen out of favour with developers. Real-time strategy is de rigeur these days. Company of Heroes is an excellent WW2 RTS - worth a look if you've not played it yet.

On the turn-based front, the best I've found are Civilization IV and Galactic Civilizations II. Neither seem to be what you're looking for, though - they're epic strategy games rather than tactical combat.

I would recommend the Front Mission games. Front Mission 3 for ps1 is one of my favs of all time. also there is 4 and 5 for the ps2 (only released in usa and jap though). Also there is other Front Mission games for the DS now. Its a turn based MechCommander style game by the makers of Final Fantasy

A game similar to Panzer General would be Clash of Steel, or Strategic Command.

Clash of Steel is a dos based game and can be found in abandonware
Strategic command is a windows based game and can be found on battlefront.
Both are turn based Corps level games
