As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

Zuzzexx has put up the product page for FOC Development Group/Reality Pump Studios' RTS World War II: Panzer Claws II revealing info & screens from. 'Panzer Claws II' depicts the struggles of armoured and mechanized units in a World War II scenario. All missions take place in Europe between 1941 and 1944. The game spans the German attack on the Soviet Union through to other important battles on the Eastern Front, operations in France and Italy to the German offensive in the Ardennes.

In 1940, France fell beneath the dark tide of war. During the early days of the occupation, the French government capitulated, and formed a collaborationist state. While the country was under enemy control, resistance fighters took to the hills, and back alleys. These brave souls began mobilizing for a fight against their occupiers, and mis-directed government officials.

The game features Real Time Strategy and offers 3D scaled maps of battlefields. The scenery changes depending on the time of day, seasons and weather conditions that highly affects visibility. The unit's mobility is reduced by roads hidden in rain or snow.
