Reviewed by Zig Battle Tanx is the first tank game for the Nintendo 64. And also the first game developed by 3DO Studios. The story starts out something like this a virus infects 99% of the female population and none of the male population and so the males revert back to the natural instinct, to survive. You play Griffin, a guy that just got engaged to the women he loved. The only thing is the government was calling for all the women left to turn themselves in to the government in order for them to be protected and so, she did. So, you determine to find her and get her back.

Graphics 7 out of 10

I have read a lot of reviews and they usually say that the graphics look like first-generation games, but I have to disagree. While there is some fog in the distance and the textures aren't that high quality. I think the graphics still suit the action well. The tanks could look a little better, thou.

Music and Sound 5 out of 10

Well.. The music and sound are just average at best. The music is really weird sounding, so I can't really describe it. And then the sound effects consist of your average turret and missile firing sounds and crunching noises when you run over cars and buildings. The only speech heard throughout the game is a women's voice that says "Powerup" believe it or not when you get a powerup. Like IGN64 said it would have been cool if 3DO could have crammed some more speech into the cart.

Game Challenge 7 out of 10

Another area where I disagree from the majority view. For me this is a pretty tough game. It's not that the computer's AI is that good, it's just that there are a lot of enemy tanks all around and they do not give you that many health powerups. But, I suppose if your a really good gamer, you won't have trouble with the 1-player mode.

Game Play-Fun 9 out of 10

Yes, this game is a lot of fun. Whether your destroying buildings to get powerups or just getting cloaking ability then coming up behind a friend and blasting him away, you'll be having a blast!

Rumble Pak 9 out of 10

While it is doesn't make innovative use of the Pak like Zelda (I'm not sure how they could have), it still adds to the game. The Rumble Pak goes off when you smash into walls, run stuff over, etc. Probably one of the best RP compatible games I've played.

Replayability 10 out of 10

This game has a very high degree of replayability, thanks in part to it's multi-player mode. Up to 4 people can play in a variety of modes (your standard deathmatch, capture the flag, etc.).

Game Value 8 out of 10

$60 is a tad steep for it, but it does have an excellent 4-player mode, so I would say it worth's it. If you don't play that much multi-player, thou, you may want to wait till it drops in price.

Overall 85 out of 100

Overall it's a great game. And while it's one-player may disappoint you, if you like blasting away at your buddies, it's 4-player will not and comes out as one of the best on the system. Good job 3DO, keep the games coming!
