Codename: Panzers Phase 2 is the second installment on the World War 2 computer game series initially released in 2004. It was made to portray the different conflicts which happened during the Second World War, a major war which lasted from 1939 to 1945. The player’s main objectives are to destroy the enemies. This game is focused more on managing elements of war rather than the actual battlefield. Elements include troops, tanks, artillery, and armoured vehicles.
Codename: Panzers Phase 2 is set in Africa, the Mediterranean, and the Balkans. Players can either be part of the Anglo-American Allies, the German- Italian Axis, or the Yugoslavian resistance. There are three campaigns in the game namely Axis, Western Allied, and Yugoslavian Partisan. As the player completes missions and optional scenarios, he gains “Prestige” points which can be used to upgrade or add new units to his force. Goals are limited on this game. At one point, the player will be tasked to hold out his unit from attack until help arrives. On other scenarios, the task will be to destroy a faction of the enemy as they move from one location to another. Lastly, the task can be to capture a particular part of the town.
