n64gm173 - Developed and Published by the 3DO Company, "BattleTanx" was released for the Nintendo 64 (N64) Entertainment System on December 29, 1998. This is a wild and exciting 1st-Person / 3rd-person Perspective Post-Apocalyptic, mission based tank Shooter game. This is a strange but extremely entertaining fun game that will keep you occupied for hours. The weird (and unbelievable) game scenario is that a malignant virus has ravaged earth and killed almost all the women of the planet, and this has somehow resulted in nuclear holocaust and worldwide chaos. The remaining females group into tank gangs. You play the game as road warrior Griffin Spade, and it's up to you to pilot one of three tanks (light, M1-A1 Abrams and the Goliath) and fight your way across the radioactive wasteland, through 17 levels, from New York to San Francisco, to find your one true love. You will have to run the gauntlet of hostile towns, claustrophobic tunnels, guarded bridges and fortified cities. Personally, I absolutely loved playing this game, it is so much fun blowing stuff up (most of the buildings and structures can be blown up). The Nintendo 64 version of battle tanx features plenty of powered-ups available from lasers, shields, health boosts, missiles, mines and grenades to tactical nuclear warheads. The sound and music in BattleTanx is excellent, especially the song from the main menu. This also includes the sound effects such as the canon blasts, machine guns and sounds of the tank rolling forward. The graphics are good for the time period and architecture of the Nintendo 64, and the gameplay and control nicely designed. I like the saving options in Battle tank as it utilizes the N64 controller pack (memory pak) so you can save your progress from one mission to another. Also, you can can type in pass codes to immediately jump to any level. Battle Tanx also has a very large multiplayer environment where up to four players can play against the computer together or in teams in several types of game play. There is the standard death match as well as capture-the-flag type play available. Overall, BattleTanx is a very entertaining and fun game which I recommend (8/10) to anyone who likes blowing stuff up. Pre-owned - Includes Game Only, no manual or instructions are included.
