I've played some tank games before, but this one has to be my favorite! Although
it's an arcade style game, the action is intense and it keeps you on your toes. You
have a multitude of weapons at your disposal and trust me, you'll need them! Your
enemy get a good aim on your if your not quick... I agree with the issues on control,
the keyboard/mouse is the best option... You need the mouse as it's the quickest
option for you to aim with... The weapons are the hardest part since you have
to change weapons by using the keyboard also... Sometimes you can hit a key for
a weapon and it's not available, but then you have to like stop and count for the
weapon you want... (is that weapon 5 of 6?) heh...
You have the opportunity to play this game in first person or third person view,
and I'd stick with the third person myself...
I do have one gripe about this game though... You have the ability to blow up
certain roads and bridges, and in most circumstances it's not a big deal, but
on like the third or forth mission, you have to enter this city and at the top
of this bridge, are these sonic tanks... When you get close to them, they start
shooting at you, and if you move, they hit the ground, which makes part of the
bridge fall... Well, if this happens, there's NO way to get across this
part (anyone know of a clipping mode for this game??? heh) ... So now you have
to start this mission all over (or from your last saved game... Oh, save a LOT!)
I figured out what was happening and trust me, I must have played that part 10 times
before figuring out what I did wrong... god, it's maddening... hehe... (it's a cool
game though) ...
