Review: Battle for Korsun
Released 27 Oct 2018
Battle for Korsun is a turn-based 'lite' strategy wargame set during the Eastern Front of World War 2. Specifically, it covers the events of the Korsun-Shevchenkovsky Offensive between Jan/Feb 1944 which led to what is known as the Battle of the Korsun-Cherkasy Pocket. A surrounded German Army Group failed to breakout and find relief, causing massive casualties.
The game is developed by Yobowargames, or Lance Craner as he is also known, and is a more simplistic wargame that acts as a great gateway experience for casual enthusiasts or those looking to get into that particular niche. Key features include:
- Hotseat or German v AI
- Large Map
- Units represent Divisions/Regiments or Battalions
- Variable weather conditions
At the time of writing, Pocket Tactics has yet to do it's own dedicated review on Battle for Korsun, however our sister website Wargamer.com has a review of the PC version if you're interested in some broad impressions.
Once we do a dedicated review on iOS, this text will be replaced by the official PT verdict.
