This game looks nice, it has decent sound and graphics but thats the only good thing I have to say about it. There is no online multiplayer which definately could've helped it, but it's the controls that bring this game down into complete worthlessness. I don't mean they are difficult to manuipulate or broken. I mean they have sucked any bit of possible challenge or fun out of this game by over simplifying the controls.
Aiming is done automatically, which leaves you with nothing to do but drive and mash the trigger to keep shooting. The driving controls are so incredibly bland for a game where all your doing is driving, driving any tank or jeep in a current first person shooter has far better controls. Seriously, this game wouldve been alot more fun in a halo warthog, at least those build up speed and skid around.
They made the controls simple enough for any small child to figure out, they just aren't very responsive. You can get anywhere you want to go by using the left stick alone. Adding a press left or right on the right stick will help you turn a bit faster, mash triggers to shoot, and thats it the entire game in a nutshell. It's entertaining for about 5-10 minutes. This is just a case of garbage getting put out for a consoles launch because there isn't a games catalogue for it to compete against. Id expect this title to be one of the first wii u games available at a heavily discounted price... It is a complete ripoff and not worth the space in anyone's game queue.

I was hoping this game would be like the old family computer snes kinda like battle city, but it only lets you drive around killing enemies and there's only local co-op, there is no online multiplayer. They could have make this game like an improved battle city tank battle kinda thing, with bases to guard and walls to smash but not easily broken like in the old days of battle city. Too bad. So I give it a 5/10 rating.
