Tank Racer is een vette racegame. Niet zoals Gran Turismo of Need for Speed of zo, maar met een hoge dosis surrealisme en humor. De controls zijn prima en vooral de multiplayer aktie is cool.
There are 15 tanks to choose from, some of which need to be opened up by completing the Bronze, Silver and Gold competition tracks, and each of them handles differently according to top speed, acceleration, handling and grip. Besides the standard eight single-player tracks and a further eight versus circuits designed specifically for two human players, there are six purpose-built arenas, where blowing ten bells of bejesus out of each other is the order of the day. It’s lively and gratifying in the short-term, but you soon tire of the relentless shoot ‘n’ dodge requirements. If you’re looking for longevity, you may be happier slugging it out over a career option in RR Type 4, but for slap-happy, scenery-mashing hokum, Tank Racer ranks up there with the best of them.

Met de Single Player mode kan je een hoop plezier beleven maar de Multiplayer mode valt een beetje tegen. De graphics zijn natuurlijk minder dan die van de PC, maar ook naar PSX-standaard niet meer dan gemiddeld.

Det är faktiskt så att kombinationen mellan ett snurrande kanontorn och skjutande, bromsande med handbroms och andra underliga manövrar, gör det hela ganska svårt, men inte överdrivet.
I'd be interested to know if indeed this initially was a tank combat/racing sim or if it was just a pretty crappy racing sim in dire need of something different. I don't know, but theres one thing for sure if you need a game that this one tries to be, go buy RollCage. Now I think I'll go run over a 2D Cow, for old time's sake.

Panzer müssen rollen für den Sieg, und daran ist zumindest hier absolut nichts Bedenkliches - es sei denn, man wäre aus Prinzip gegen Rennspiele. Leider wurden die guten Ansätze von Tank Racer nicht ausgenutzt. Gegner durch gezielten Beschuß zu einem Fehler zu zwingen, macht Spaß, aber wenn man dann selber an der Reihe ist, ohne sich wehren zu können (nur der Computer kann nach hinten schießen), überwiegt das Frustpotential. Die nicht immer ganz genaue Steuerung erhöht das noch. Wer germe Rennpanzer in seiner Sammlung hat, darf zugreifen, Kriegsdienstverweigerer konzentrieren sich lieber auf einen Konkurrenztitel.
The game is still just a repackaging of so many other racing titles. There's some original thought here but not enough to make the game deserve much attention. If there had been more weapons like the UFO thing, then the game could've been a lot zanier. I don't know about you, but zany sells in my neighborhood. I think they tried to make this a slightly comical game anyway-the theme park track is a good example. If more attention had been placed on those aspects, this game would be unique and maybe even a little more fun. Not for the sake of the gameplay, but for the concept behind it.

Tank Racer is yet another lame attempt at making a racing game fun for the whole family. There is nothing to this game besides driving and shooting tanks that are invulnerable to your every attack.
