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.

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.

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.

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.

The modest production values combined with a lack of over-the-top Hollywood bombast will likely ensure that like Verdun before it, not everyone will enjoy Tannenberg. For those who can look beyond such flaws however, Tannenberg cements itself as a gloriously satisfying strategic shooter that invites players to pit their tactical minds and reflexes in one of the most overlooked theaters of war in a way that no other FPS manages to achieve.

Tannenberg has authenticity in spades. Sadly, middling animations, unreliable AI, and uninspiring combat sully what could've been a remarkable experience.

A diamond in the rough from the historic shooter games.

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

M2H and Blackmill Games have executed their concept so well that the most glaring criticism is that there is not more. With such good a foundation as Verdun, it would have been nice to see a greater variety of maps, or perhaps even some different objective based modes. While it should be noted that fans of run and gun in faster-paced shooters may be frustrated with the game's more methodical pacing, Tanneberg is a satisfying tactical shooter.

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