Partisans 1941 - selected reviews

According to reviewers, Partisans 1941 is a solid work. Unfortunately, in some areas, the game is a bit too repetitive. Some people also complain about unpolished elements of gameplay mechanics, including key issues such as the combat system, stealth and interface (e.g. illegible icons, inventory screen).

Judged on its own merits, Partisans 1941 is a well-made adventure game with enough new ideas that it doesn’t need to fully ape its inspirations and just enough confidence that it, mostly, gets away with its shortcomings. If you can look past the slightly drab exterior, fans of the genre will certainly get a kick from its earnest blend of action and tactics," Mick Fraser, God is a Geek (rating 8/10).

"Partisans 1941 blends differing aspects of the tactical squad genre with mixed results. While the staging of ambushes and scouting of strongholds is as satisfying as any other game, the actual combat and fireworks leave a little bit to be desired," Rosh Kelly, Wccftech (rating 7.8/10).

"Partisans 1941 offers some great combat and stealth mechanics that will appeal to fans of the Commandos series, Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, and Desperados III. While it might not have the engrossing story of its counterparts and may lack polish in places, the gameplay mechanics still make for a thrilling ride from start to finish," Lise Leitner, Checkpoint Gaming (rated 6/10).
