BattleTanx: Global Assault is most easily described as MORE BattleTanx. More maps, more tanks, more gangs, and more power-ups. Fortunately, in this instance, that also translates into more excitement, more fun, and more replay value!

Overall, this is a fun game right out of the box. While it does have some level of complication, it’s simple enough to enjoy immediately out of the box. It has nice graphics and sound, which are always a plus when trying to enjoy a game. The multiplayer options ensure the replayability of this game for quite some time. I found virtually nothing to gripe about in this game which is why I happily give it a score of 87.

So loyal Nintendo owners, there is now one less reason to be jealous of the PSX. BattleTanx: Global Assault is easily the match for the famed Twisted Metal series, and is certainly better than TM3 & 4. While not anything really new, this is good, fun, solid vehicular combat at it's current best. Pick up a copy, and serve your queen-lord well. Just be careful if you ask her for a date, the competition is fierce.

We knew Global Assault back when it was still BattleTanx II and we liked it then. So when the final version came out looking sharper and moving smoother we couldn't help but be impressed. From the new tanks to the new powerups to the new battle modes, this game improved in nearly every area over the original and as we said, BattleTanx was a pretty fun game. Even with Vigilante 8: Second Offense on the way, Global Assault is a nice choice for you vehicle combat game of the fall. Pick it up, invite your friends over and be sure to have plenty of snacks for the party that ensues. One word of warning, though. We're very serious about avoiding those super fast tanks, because it drove us absolutely nuts trying to get the hang of it. We're not saying that you're going so fast that you can dodge bullets. What we're saying is, when you're good enough at this game and using powerups, you won't have to.

Durch die Action und das Drumherum fällt es einem ziemlich schwer, das Pad für einen Tag ruhen zu lassen. Das einzige was dem Game Minuspunkte bringt, ist der Nebel im Spiel. Aus dem Zeitalter sollten wir doch nun eigentlich heraus sein, oder??? Doch zusammenfassend überwiegt der Spielspaß und die Darstellung der Panzer und natürlich die Action. Wer ein Faible für Panzer hat und Kriegsaction mag, der sollte sich Battle Tanx "Global Assault" auf jeden fall näher ansehen.

Provided you can overlook the low quality of the visuals, there’s a lot to be said for BattleTanx: Global Assault, which is one of the most enjoyable titles on the N64, despite its back-to-basics style. As a single-player game, it proves to be a mild diversion from the rigors of everyday life, but in multiplayer mode, it’s dangerously addictive, damnably tricky to master, and deliciously good fun for players of all skill levels. Additionally, fans of the original will find that the action has been tweaked and enhanced in many ways, offering a good reason for veterans and newcomers alike to check it out, even if it is a bit lacking in babes.

Battletanx: Global Assault is a solid second effort in the Battletanx series. There are enough new elements to make it more than just a quick cash-in on the success of the original. Theoretically, since the world is full of famous places and landmarks that can be reduced to rubble, gamers can look forward to many more sequels and many more years of urban annihilation.

Mit zunehmender Spieldauer gesellen sich zu eurem gut steuerbaren Tank alternative Kriegsmaschinen hinzu, während ihr um euch herum ein wahres Inferno veranstaltet. Leider vermag die Story den erbitterten Kampf ums Überleben nicht so glaubhaft zu vermitteln, sodass sich die Unterschiede zu den Mehrspieler-Modi weitgehend auf die Anwesenheit CPU-gesteuerter Gegner beschränken. Nichtsdestotrotz bekommen die Anhänger von geballter Action ebendiese geboten, und als Party-Game weiß BattleTanx: Global Assault auch für längere Zeit zu unterhalten.

What more is there too say? Battle Tanx: Global Assault is superb fun for all the family, the main campaign can be played singularly or cooperatively depending on your tastes. A wide selection of multiplayer modes, tanks and power-ups help keep things fresh and the graphics help keep things running smoothly without sacrificing quality. If you can find a second hand copy on Ebay we definitely recommend picking it up!

BattleTanx is op zich een leuke game, maar deze PlayStation-poort is wat mij betreft niet helemaal 100% geslaagd. Het blijft leuk om over allerlei shit heen te rijden in een enorme tank, maar er had wel het een en ander verbeterd kunnen worden.

Das Spielprinzip ist einfach, wen wundert es also, dass nach ein paar Runden der Ofen aus ist, genauer gesagt, wird es dann ziemlich öde. Ebenso simpel ist die Bedienung, so dass ihr euch beim Ballern kaum Mühe geben müsst, um die Gegner umzunieten.
Instead of playing to the PlayStation's abilities, this port tries to match the N64 version as much as it can, without improving the areas where it could exceed it. If you've really been looking forward to playing this game, you're much better off renting a Nintendo 64 and the N64 edition to see it done right.
Battletanx Global Assault est à réserver aux passionnés de ce genre de jeu, et encore, car sa jouabilité trop médiocre et le peu de profondeur dans les missions à accomplir limitent très rapidement. Qui plus est, une certaine monotonie finit par envahir, sauf peut-être en mode multijoueurs.
Bottom line, this is just a game that shouldn't have been done on the PlayStation. If 3DO can get their butts in gear and step up to the next-gen power of the PS2, we might actually see an enjoyable game from them on the PlayStation other than Army Men: Air Attack. Had the control and sound effects been addressed early on, we could have seen a game that offered a handful of guys a great blow-em-up party game that was a total blast. This is just a dud.

BattleTanx: Global Assault never raised my hopes, mainly because it is a 3DO title. I have said it before and I'll say it again, if anything is developed or published by 3DO to today, watch what you buy, the company has now given itself the worst reputation in the video gaming industry. BattleTanx is not worth a purchase, a rental, even a second of eye contact. The game gives nothing, to keep someone coming back.
Est-il besoin d’en dire plus ? Les modes de jeu sont bien pensés mais tout le reste et raté. Un jeu à réserver à ... votre pire ennemi.

Varför 3DO envisas med att göra krigsspel är för mig helt obegripligt. Det senaste Army Men: Sarge's Heroes borde egentligen ha varit en väckarklocka, men istället för att tänka om fortsätter de på inslagen väg. Med hopplöst dålig spelkontroll och på sin höjd medelmåttig 3D-grafik. Uppdragen och det stora urvalet av spelsätt förtjänar egentligen ett bättre öde, men i det här sammanhanget räcker de inte för att jag ens ska överväga att spela Battle Tanx: Global Assault igen.
