War of the Human Tanks (PC) – Review

voletic.com
14 February 2014
  • Conclusion: While there is some fun to be had with War of the Human Tanks, the enjoyment doesn’t last very long, especially if you aren’t familiar enough with Japanese cultural tropes to find the script funny. The lack of multiplayer is also harmful to the longevity of the game. What we are left with is a very niche title that misses opportunities all over the place and provides a modest amount of entertainment at best.

War of the Human Tanks review (PC)

  • Excerpt: War is hell. Except, perhaps, for when it’s drowning in chibi disposable soldiers. Even then, it’s still kind of hellish.

  • Conclusion: War of the Human Tanks is not for me. Whether by virtue of simply missing something culture wise to explain why the human tanks are all school girls, or even what the hell is going on in Japon anyway, working through this game was a slog and a half. If you happen to be a Japan-aphile and see something in this that I missed, feel free to leave a comment and let me know, because I would love for this game to mean more then it did while I was playing it.

War of the Human Tanks

  • Summary: War of the Human Tanks is a battle all right... a battle to get to the game.
  • Pros: The mix of turn-based action and strategy works well. Great chess-like element to the battles helps mix up all-out action.
  • Cons: Tons and tons and tons of story between game segments means it sometimes feels less like a game and more like a somewhat interactive novel. The story that's there isn't really worth all the time dedicated to it. At all. Will wear down your mouse button clicking through cutscenes. The aesthetic, music, and animation - while high quality - are all very culturally specific and may not appeal to all.

War Of The Human Tanks Review (PC)

TheSixthAxis
30 January 2014
  • Excerpt: War Of The Human Tanks has quite the weird premise in that, as you can guess, that the tanks used in battle are human or at least things that act and look human. The game has been developed by Yakiniku Banzai and published by Fruitbat Factory, and you can tell inspiration has come from the classic game of Battleship with an evolution to the formula. a bold task to undertake and one that has been well executed.
  • Pros: It’s like Battleship evolved., Re-playability present due to branching plot., Gameplay is simple to understand and navigate., Makes you think both in battles and about the pretty deep plot themes.
  • Cons: Deployment menu before battles could be tweaked a bit., No multiplayer.

War Of The Human Tanks Review | Click-Click-Click Boom

  • Conclusion: The Short Version: War Of The Human Tanks presents some intensely addictive, tense and exciting bite-sized strategy battles, but many Western players will balk at having to click through hundreds of screens' worth of text in order to access the tasty tactical core. Be aware that it's a fairly mediocre visual novel that just happens to contain a fun strategy minigame, not a traditional RTS or turn-based title.
  • Pros: Razor sharp hex-based battles with elements of turn-based and real-time strategy, Punchy, tense matches and addictive customisation, Strong overarching storyline
  • Cons: Reams of clunky, awkward and dull dialogue makes characters and humour hard to relate to, Bland backdrops, continually-repeated character portraits, It's a visual novel first and foremost. Know this going in., Click-click- click- click- click- click...
