Essentially a computer-assisted boardgame,
Tanktics features hypothetical World War II
German-Russian armor battles. The player can
only play the German. It is notable as one of
the first computer wargames.
There are two types of people who might be
disappointed with TANKTICS. The first is
someone who buys it wanting an arcade-style
game; this it obviously is not and was never
intended to be. The second is the serious wargamer
who expects the computerized equivalent of
PANZER or SQUAD LEADER. This game has
neither the complexity nor feel of these board
games. In some areas (like combat resolution) it
comes close, but in other ways (lines of sight) it's
much simpler. You don't have the sense of control
that you do in a board game; average luck on an
unlikely shot and poor luck on a likely shot all
come out the same: a miss! You can't tell the
difference and if you can't shrug that off,
TANKTICS may irritate you. For those of us who
enjoy a little uncertainty and for all you readers
who now know what to expect, TANKTICS is just
plain FUN! know why things are happening.
