Tannenberg offers an authentic World War 1 experience of the conflict waged on the Eastern Front. It features excellent attention to detail in the map design, character uniforms and weaponry, but the dogged commitment to historical accuracy means its appeal is limited to a very small niche of player.

I often feel uncomfortable playing military shooters. Is it really morally acceptable for me to be having fun in a virtual playground that depicts a real life conflict in which thousands lost their lives? I don't know the answer, but thankfully Tannenberg never forces me to consider this ethical question. Tannenberg has some good ideas, but it's a slightly dull online FPS that never really gets going. As a budget multiplayer shooter there's some satisfaction to be had, but overall this is a far too limited and sluggish experience.

Online multiplayer games were once a rarity, but now however they are commonplace to the point of oversaturation. From PUGB and Fortnite to Call of Duty, Apex and more, there is a tried and tested formula that seems to reign supreme. So when I saw a code of an (as of that moment) unreleased online multiplayer called Tannenberg come along, I was certainly intrigued. Now, it wasn’t that online multiplayer aspect that caught my attention, but rather, the setting. A WWI game, a part of history that video games tend to overlook in favour of WWII, Vietnam, or more modern fictional wars. I knew nothing more about the game when I agreed to take the code, and that is just the way I like it. So, how did I find my time in the trenches? Did I go over the top for glory or was I left with underpants on my head, pencils up my nose crying wibble in the hope of being sent home? You will have to read on to find out.

Despite being rather rough around the edges, Tannenberg’s unique nature breaks from the trends of most AAA first-person shooters today.

Tannenberg is by no means a bad game. That being said, I can't recommend it for the sheer fact that the player count is far too low. The audience for this game is split with Verdun, its predecessor, and there simply isn't enough here to make playing it the clear choice. Two of the modes in Tannenberg aren't even playable unless you want to play completely with mediocre AI bots. Perhaps during a sale or after a big update, when the population spikes, it's worth a purchase. Otherwise, I'd just stick with Verdun.

Tannenberg being released for a console ends up showing more of its bad side than its unique style. Adapting the game to the controls is something not well executed and the title suffers a lot in the technical and visual parts. However, there are successes in the teams structuring and specially in the Maneuver mode.

Tannenberg provides a realistic historical reproduction of one of the big battles of WW1, but the gameplay is still largely perfectible and battles feel too flat, with few tactical options ad too many campers which, historical accuracy or not, isn't pleasant in a multiplayer shooter.

Tannenberg delivers a generally solid experience on Xbox One bringing with it bots that can keep the action going forever and large theaters of war.

Tannenberg is a good FPS in general that has things to say in World War 1's not so busy market, and it can even satisfy fans of realistic shooters too. However, some technical and design issues prevent the game from reaching its full potential.

Speaking of which, if they do have the bots anyway, Tannenberg could do itself a favor if it could introduce a singleplayer Campaign as well since given the already accurate historical depiction, they could easily get away with a 3-4 hour story.

Like Verdun, also Tannenberg is a good historical FPS set during the WW1, but there is already a lack of players.

You really can't go wrong with playing Tannenberg, especially if you just want a quick online shooting fix after a hard day's work. The authenticity factor is fantastic and the constant push-and-pull of its Maneuver mode will keep you thoroughly engaged.

Tannenberg is a strategic shooter that pays incredible attention to detail. The presentation might not be AAA, big-budget level, but the developers have put together a compelling mode of play that is easy to sink many hours into. Here is hoping for more growth in the player base, because the early lack of online players does potentially limit Tannenberg’s potential long-term appeal.

If you're looking for a first-person shooter that is slightly different from the standard run of the mill FPS, Tannenberg is the way to go. Gameplay, the feel of the guns and map choice is all solid and makes for a great experience, but Tannenberg is held back by its lack of players and a mediocre class system.

Much like Verdun, its predecessor, Tannenberg offers an authentic and engaging First World War experience. Those who enjoy tactical, more realistic shooters will love it; everyone else should consider giving it a chance, but be warned that the game was made on a limited budget and it shows.

Tannenberg is more accessible and has a greater fun factor than you might expect from a realism-driven World War 1 shooter, thanks to a great central game mode and consistently exciting and satisfying gameplay. Though you'll need to be on board with bolt-action rifles and accept that you are going to die a lot.

A diamond in the rough from the historic shooter games.

The price tag that the game boasts is actually less than I would have been happy to pay for it, after sinking quite a few hours into it. If you want a mindless shooter, then Tannenberg definitely isn’t for you. If you like to plan your actions, and if you’re methodical about how you proceed through a map, Tannenberg should be right up your alley.

Glitches, inept AI, and low player counts aside, I do still recommend giving Tannenberg a shot, especially if you are looking for a game that really nails the look, feel, and atmosphere of WWI.
