I wouldn’t pay five dollars for this game, and I really doubt it qualifies as an authentic tank sim, but I think I enjoyed my time with Battle Tank nevertheless. There was something strangely Zen about the whole experience; like if The Thin Red Line had been about Gulf War tank drivers, instead of World War II. While you can press Start to bring up the map and find the location of the enemy, I recommend just driving around for awhile and pondering the meaning of your existence. At the very least, Battle Tank feels different than most NES action games. I respect that.
The arid wastelands, presumably those of the Middle East variety, are a monotonous brown, and the green areas, which are boring-looking as well, lack clouds, meaning the programmers could have spent more time detailing the terrain and the skies. The tanks and instrument panel, on the other hand, are very nicely drawn. Playable, but not terribly exciting.
