TNK III 

 

I find it interesting that some franchises earn the right to describe a specific genre even though there may be better games, or games that pre-date them. The running through an area with an overhead view shooting game is generally described as an Ikari Warrior game. Did you know that T.N.K. III came out a year prior? Did you know many gaming connoisseurs consider it to be a better game? How will it do with Family Friendly Gaming? Will I make you read both reviews?

Visually T.N.K. III shows its age in some areas, and looks better than I hoped in others. The tank you get to drive. Yes you drive a tank in T.N.K. III. And not just for a limited time either. You play the entire game in a tank. Now that we have that out of the way, let us talk about the violence. Players can shoot the cannon and machine guns. You can also run over these little green blobs that are soldiers. They rarely pose much of a threat though - unless you consider enough bee stings can bring a human down.

The mechanized sounds in T.N.K. III fit the theme masterfully. I did feel bad when the little soldier boys were getting run over. I found it was easier to do that than hit them with the cannon. Machine guns hit them pretty easily as well. The music in T.N.K. III is entertaining and artistic. I got used to the explosions in T.N.K. III. It made me feel like I was somewhere where violence was happening.

The biggest surprise I got from T.N.K. III is how long it is. This felt like an 8-bit game due to level design and length of play. There are various areas to traverse, and they keep this game fresh. T.N.K. III costs $2.99 so it is not that expensive. The main concept behind T.N.K. III is you are blowing up everything in your path. Get to the end . There are health items along the way as well as constant enemies harassing you. I found it was better to just breeze through some sections without the violence. Peace man, can't we all just get along.

T.N.K. III taught me to get them before they get me. And if they get me, I need to get them right back. The old an eye for an eye concept. If we all did that in the real world nothing would get accomplished and we would all be blind. So I decided to try and leave the lessons of T.N.K. III on the game console. I know my next opinion may offend some people. So if it bothers you sorry. I think that T.N.K. III is better than Ikari Warriors.
