Developed by Graviteam, Published by Paradox Interactive. This time, however, Ukrainian-based game developer Graviteam has partnered with Paradox Interactive to make the most historically accurate and detailed war game based on the Kharkov region to date. The game has but six scenarios, a small number when compared to most other war games. Thankfully the game also ships with an editor for those do-it-yourself grognards. Just about everything else a wargamer may look for in a game is here, though, from very nicely done graphics to finely crafted ballistics and plenty of command-and-control options.

The 3D encyclopedia is an extra-special addition and is a great help in understanding the capabilities of Soviet and German World War Two equipment. AP:K plays much like the Total War series, in that it has both operational and tactical components, with the common deployment mode sandwiched in between.

From the main selection screen, play starts when a player selects a scenario, launching the Operation Phase. This is where players see the entire region of game play and all the forces involved and begin to create a grand strategy for winning the fight. Not much time is spent in the Operation Phase, just long enough to bring opposing forces together for combat, which triggers the Deployment Phase.

The Deployment Phase displays the 3D battlefield with a grid overlay, color-coded to help players know where the best places are to set their troops and vehicles.

Camera control is also a factor here, and the AP:K camera is well suited for giving players the best view of wherever they want to look. An isometric view, which is normal fare for other RTS games, worked much better. Another handy item is being able to set different screen resolutions for the game Phases.

Gamers with older machines should take note. Tactical Phase is where the majority of the wargaming takes place. Once a player has finished deploying his forces across the battle grid, the game turns into real-time mode.

AP:K has a wide range of orders available, as expected in any company-level tactical simulation, and all may be quickly issued by clicking on interface buttons or via hotkeys. Attack, defense, and movement modes, assigning fire arcs and priority targets, ascertaining lines of sight and fire, and moving units quickly along roads or stealthily off-road are just a few of the orders available. All important unit formations are also made ready through buttons and hotkeys.

Everything from normal, column, echelon, and dispersed formations may be triggered on the fly. Players may even set the number of lines per formation-either one, two, or three, depending on the mission. On-screen colors and shapes do a very good job at providing a wealth of information to the player.

Combined with the standard NATO unit symbols, it was a bit like being back in an old line unit and drawing out the known battlefield on map overlays with dry erase markers.

AP:K also makes convenient use of diagrams, perhaps the most frequently used being the Armor Penetration Diagram, which helps a player to know what munitions are most effective against various armor thicknesses at a variety of ranges. Not only that, the diagram here also lets the player build the diagram for a specific part of a vehicle, like the turret or upper or lower hull. Even though the values given are only approximates, it still makes for a great reference to key in on when faced with an opposing armor unit.

First, AP:K really has no tutorial. What it calls a tutorial is just a series of slow-loading large tool tips, textually explaining what an interface button or symbol is. It takes a very long time for it to cycle through the whole process, if a player is able to stay awake for it. Three manuals come in. The primary game manual was not translated to English well and is a pain to read at times. Beginner war gamers may not want to start their gaming efforts with AP:K, since these factors make for a rather bumpy learning curve.

Making use of the movement orders buttons is imperative, and worked much better than the easier method of clicking on the desired destination. Taken together, these factors make for a much greater degree of micromanaging, not always a good thing-especially in an RTS game. Another time, the enemy was under heavy fire yet remained plain sight on an open field instead of retreating back a few meters into the woodline. The attention to detail that went into the units and maps alone make it worthy, and the added combat ballistics and 3D action help push it up a few more notches.

Wargamers desiring a fresh look into the Battle of Kharkov would do well to buy Achtung Panzer: Kharkov Watch for an Armchair General interview with Graviteam about Operation Star, the next game in this series, coming later this week.
