Panzer General: Allied Assault is an odd concoction. It contains a heaping pile of turn-based strategy, a handful of card mechanics, and even a pinch of board play. Fortunately, these ingredients mix together rather well, resulting in a surprisingly deep World War II-themed strategy title that should catch the eye of any fan of the genre.
The gameplay is most reminiscent of a turn-based strategy title, only the units and actions are represented by cards. Each player uses their deck to work their way across the board and accomplish victory via a number of various conditions – often eliminating all enemy units, or controlling the enemy's "home" tile. Along the way, prestige points are earned, which serve as a valuable resource required for playing cards.
