Now that is funny hehe.

I could list a list of games not worth squat where learning is concerned, that would be longer than my arm hehe.
And some of those games have such rabid fans all the same.

yeah, I downloaded and played the demo for a few minutes before deleting the program. I think the only connection between PE sim and PE:FoG is the name...

I took a look at the screenshots - even with DSL te mirror site takes up to three hours to download a 355 MB load! - and wasn't too impressed. Except for the addition of a lot of fancy flames, I saw nothing different from the original PE, and all the day shots were apparently from one limited scene.

Panzer Elite Action online Multiplayer Demo

http://ds.jowood.com/panzeraction/PEA_MP_Demo.exe

Rottenmann, Austria, 29 Febuary 2006 - Jowood Productions, co-publisher Deep Silver. Before the release of the arse-kicking, action-packed WWII tank game Panzer Elite Action for XboxTM, Playstation® 2 and PC developed by Zootfly.

It's now time now to get down and dirty and get behind a 30 ton tank and blast the living daylights out of friends or foe, following hot on the heals of the single-player demo now up to 32 players can experience challenge of surviving an onslaught of fire power from all directions, in a last man standing grudge map.

Panzer Elite Action is an arse kicking, action packed WWII tank game, where you are in charge of 30 tons of killing machine that can flatten a village from a distance with fire power alone. In the process, you can wipe out enemy tanks whilst hiding behind buildings or, you can send foot soldiers on their way to either look for shelter or get killed by the first volleys of death from your own cannons.

Panzer Elite Action follows the story of three tank commanders and their crew. The German commander, flushed with the success of the Blitzkrieg in Poland and France, moves on to the Eastern Front and the brink of victory with the taking of Stalingrad. We meet the Russian commander in desperate straits as he helps defend Stalingrad, and follow him as the tide turns against the Germans and he joins the massive tank battle of Kursk. The American commander enters the war on the Normandy Beachhead on D-Day. After the struggle for the Bocage, he defends the German outbreak at the Battle of the Bulge, and then drives on to the victorious crossing of the Rhine.

Panzer Elite Action lets the player have the ability to command increasingly powerful tanks in a series of intense and immersive action packed battles, which will let the player experience the adrenalin rush of charging into battle with cannons blazing death and destruction upon everything in their path.

Features:

# Command your tanks through 3 different campaigns set against the backdrop of the most dramatic battles of WW II

# Take on the enemy with your choice from over 15 powerful and versatile tanks

# Become the leader of your own squad and employ various strategies using the different tanks.

# An action filled battlefield with AI controlled airplanes, infantry and enemy vehicles making the mayhem of battle come alive

# Blast through houses and trees in a completely destructible environment

# Graphic engine supports all up to date graphic features

# Compelling theme, storyline, and characters created by design legend Bob Bates (Unreal 2,...)

I have to agree. While the controls are the kind of type I was hoping for, the gameplay is way too arcadish. The Shermans are way too powerful and the German tanks are too weak (not to mention of wrong types). Overall, its ok, but its not what I was hoping for.
