I can honestly say that I flat-out loved every second of this disc. The controls are spot-on, the graphics are clean and attractive, there are no camera problems, and it's just right for picking up and jumping in. The difficulty is definitely on the easy side, but the replay is unbelievable with mixing and matching parts, not to mention at least two mission branches in the story mode (possibly more) and the challenges of completing the arenas. Seek And Destroy's quality is absolutely staggering for such a low price. Because of this, it earned a full extra point on its score and has become the most pleasant and satisfying surprise I've had in quite a while. Top marks.
Five years ago, Seek and Destroy would have been a more impressive game. Its inelaborate gameplay and terribly dated graphics and sound absolutely scream for it to be a PlayStation game, yet somehow Seek and Destroy ended up on the PS2. Considering the already-stiff competition for vehicular combat on Sony's current hardware, there's really no room for Seek and Destroy in most players' libraries. Still, with its $10 price tag, Seek and Destroy could prove to be a useful distraction for kids looking for a simple game with a lot of stuff blowing up. For more fastidious gamers, however, Seek and Destroy is of no use, and is best left at the bottom of the bargain bin.

Seek and Destroy is quite cute for its naivety really, and impossible to take seriously. It's the village idiot of vehicular combat games. It looks absolutely abysmal, with N64-at-best graphics, but strangely enough the aesthetic suits the simple gameplay. You wouldn't get more than an hour's entertainment out of it, but we would probably recommend it for your kids if the general standard of grammar wasn't so appalling.
Défoulant durant aux grands mots une heure, les lacunes grandement mises en avant contiennent un intérêt déjà en berne depuis longtemps. Développer un soft mettant en scène des tanks doués de réflexion, au sein d'un environnement mi-"aventure", mi-"destruction sauvage" était osé. Malheureusement, cette tentative échoue, loin de convaincre les aficionados des deux forces en présence. La reddition vint plus vite que prévu.
The Video Game Critic
The graphics and sound are pretty weak for a PS2 game, but the controls are simple to grasp, and you can adjust your turret independently of your tank's movement. I only wish my turret would remain at the same angle without having to readjust it constantly. Seek and Destroy requires some strategy in terms of weapon selection and battlefield tactics, and each mission is unique. Add in a two-player battle mode, 16 mini-games, and a virtual tank museum, and you have a decent value.
