Who’s going to be most interested in PE? Well, certainly the intended market…. those professionals looking for a home version of the work simulator. Real tank sim fanatics may gulp a little at paying $125 for a ‘game,’ but I suspect some will end up doing so, especially since SB2 is still some time away and SB was so popular among that crowd.
Whoever buys it will very likely walk away impressed with Steel Beasts Professional PE. You can see the successful lineage of the original Steel Beasts, and can also see all the work that’s gone into it so far.
It still may not be the most pretty, most game-like tank sim on the market, but it knows what it is and isn’t, and it does what it does very well.
