SummaryRemake of Microprose's M1 Tank Platoon
The GoodIt was a worthy successor, although the people who wrote it had nothing to do with the original Microprose team. By that stage Microprose had been sold, absorbed and resold, so by this stage it was just a name.
It had extremely good graphics, even with their software renderer! Nice rolling landscapes; deserts and forests. Towns. A class job.
It was fast and furious, and the sound was well done.
The BadThe original Microprose team were experts in Gameplay. They did something with the original that made you keep wanting to go back for more. It was hard to pin down what that was, and the remake missed it. I played it for a bit, and moved on.
It was very buggy! Story was they did the old 'Ship it and we'll do a patch.' It got a very bad word of mouth because of this.
