Panzermadels: Tank Dating Simulator For PC Reviews

“Panzermadels” is an odd amalgamation of cute nods to military history and Japanese dating sim tropes. Is an enjoyable novelty, yet its choice of engine and linear story prevent me from wholeheartedly recommending it. Still, its premise alone may warrant a look for some, and I am quite curious what the developers could do if given more resources. I do not know why all of these ending result in Erwin dying, but they do, which really does discourage replaying through this admittedly short game.

All of which go against the sort of things I have grown to expect after playing through games made in more sophisticated engines, such as Ren’py, and make the process of going through the game multiple times a slog. It occurs to me that there IS another game out there, with an equally silly theme, that shows that good writing is still possible. Don’t let a silly theme make you shy away from telling a good story.

DPRK, and found it to be a marked improvement over Panzermadels largely due to the increased level of polish present in the game. Well they obviously got more resources for their follow up games cause those are really good. See Panzermadels as a “imagine what we could do”. Many of the quirks from the previous games were corrected.

You do of course get to hook up with these tank girls, but the game is not graphic or over the top like many other visual novel dating sims are. There is a real tongue in cheek thing about the whole game and that is something I really do like. The characters are also given, shall I say, socio-political outlooks that correspond with their nation of Origin and the WWII era. It really ties things together and everything the characters say that draws back to history seem to have been fact checked or researched in advance, granting the game and characters a greater degree of depth and legitimacy.

It is very funny, and there is a stereotypical girl for everyone Tsundere,Yandere,Hemedere,etc. It has a strange theme that makes people curious, screenshots of a few of the jokes, it’s enough to make some people decide to buy it – on sale – and see what it’s really like. There are some references to the actual tanks the girls are named after. Some of their personality traits can be assigned due to their country of origin.


This is made evident just by taking a look at the cast of five datable tank girls. The tomboyish American M4 Sherman, the Soviet tsundere T-34, the Soviet yandere IS-2, the upbeat Japanophile German Panzer IV, and her more reserved sister Maus. While the writing is, at times, inconsistent in quality, it’s hard to deny that it’s clearly written with the passion of someone who knows their military history. The game is very much a visual novel, meaning the player spends most of their time looking at still images and reading text while making occasional decisions to steer the narrative forward. There are numerous tanks to date, each of which leads to a more in-depth discovery of the personality of that tank-girl. The story centers around Erwin, an American soldier who, for reasons never addressed, is sent to the English speaking nation of Japan to attend a Tank School.

But the personalities have about as much depth as a saucer of milk. And the writing, unfortunately, contains several plot points that get immediately dropped that COULD have actually gone somewhere. That and some things in the game really should be explained. This game is one of the few dating sim games I can call good.

One relationship led to me having to admit to fucking a military-owned tank as my alibi for desertion from the Army, which lead to some interesting Google searches once I finished. It’s crude, but generally carried off in an amusing manner. It’s a shame discussions of war and politics are few and far between. I suppose it’s easier to drop in a joke about operations manuals and rising turrets than to slot in an intelligent commentary about the military tactics of the Soviet Union. It’s also clearly written by Americans who have a superficial knowledge of the rest of the world, and make ham-fisted attempts at accurately representing different cultures. In particular, the game’s understanding of Japan is mixed, torn between tasteful depictions of rural towns and awkwardly inserted beliefs about the prevalence of nerd culture within the country.

To the point where I do not know what these people are actually trying to learn. There’s apparently talk about how to make Zweiback at one point, which is a German biscuit of sorts, but I could not pick up on anything more finite than that. I get how they are mimicking how most school centered anime and manga do not actually focus on learning, but those also do not take place in a tank school where the entire school can simply shut down in order to hold a bake sale or car wash.
