    Whether you want to casually roll through and blow up some insects on the easy setting, or wrack your brain to test your mettle with manual shooting and an insanely difficult campaign, BUGS vs. TANKS! offers a little something for everyone.

    Does exactly what it sets out to do. We're just not entirely sure if that qualifies as a success. [Sept 2013, p.89]

    One-track, funny and very rough around the edges. [Oct 2013, p.75]

    In the end if you forget that you’re playing as World War II Germans, and you play a mission or two at a time, there’s some fun to be had in there now and then, even if it is bug sized and not as complex as an actual tank. That being said, the overall experience isn’t a particularly good one.

    To poor attention to detail, Bugs vs Tanks! adds bad controls and even worst graphics. The gameplay itself is boring and simplistic, and can't offer a good challenge to the player.

    While the basic concept and gameplay may be enticing for many players, the fact is that BUGS vs. TANKS! is a repetitive and overly simplistic experience. The campaign is short and involves a plot that delves much deeper than simple survival, but the gameplay quickly becomes boring and loses its charm. That's not to say that this is a bad or broken game, but it falls flat in its attempts to create an experience that is both engaging and fun.

    You might think that I'm overreacting, that I should just look at Bugs vs Tanks as some silly little downloadable oddity, that I should put politics aside and just focus on the game play. I mean, inherent ideology aside, what you've got here is essentially Earth Defense Force-lite, but shrunk down to its basic components so that it fits on the 3DS — and God knows I love EDF.

It has an interesting story and can be both a walk in the park or a insane challenge. It does lack gameplay elements that would've made it better and really has terrible graphics for something on a 3DS. Expand

    This games pretty meh. For 2.99 on sale in the eshop i would say its worth it. However, the gameplay is a bit erratic. Playing it on easyThis games pretty meh. For 2.99 on sale in the eshop i would say its worth it. However, the gameplay is a bit erratic. Playing it on easy difficulty I still experience a level every now and again thats insanely difficult. Up the difficulty more and you'll be in for a real frustrating challenge. The addition of multiplayer helps its score out quite a bit for me. Fun for quick little sessions with friends. The graphics are awful, it looks like a 3DS game. Its a hit or miss game, but for 2.99 on sale its worth the risk because you may end up liking it. Expand
