  • Summary: Welcome to Wednesday Night WarJetz, the year 2062's favorite post-nuclear war, televised aerial dogfighting extravaganza featuring fanatical pilots in nine different souped-up, artillery laden planes in 33 arenas which blast the living hell out of anything that moves, earning money en route to the WDL championship.

  1. If you're into complete and total destruction (a la "Blast Corps" for the Nintendo 64), then you'll have a hell of a time with Thunder Tanks. It will blow you away.
  2. The multiplayer mode is where the real fun lies then, and this game can genuinely suck hours from your existence with the aid of a few bloodthirsty friends and an unhealthy obsession with scrap metal.
  3. This version of WDL is definitely a great improvement over the Psone's, so if you love battle tank games or just blowing things up then give this one a try.
  4. It’s sort of ketchup chip gaming, a little bit sweet, a little bit sour, compelling enough that you keep at it past the point of real enjoyment and feel like your time might be better spent elsewhere, [shrug], wipe the red stain off your hands and have some more.
  5. With a deeper single-player mode and less silly WWF-like antics, "World Destruction League" truly puts the thunder in "Thunder Tanks" with enough firepower to level a small country (four-player brawls are guaranteed to satisfy). Give me less cheese and more caviar next time 3DO.
  6. The tanks are cool and feature gritty design and nice detailing -- but their animation sets are pretty limited and the sensation of piloting an actual, steely titan is somewhat lacking.
  7. Tries hard with a macho attitude, but there isn't anything satisfying underneath. Instead, you get a mish mash of tired game concepts thrown into an industrial blender, fingers crossed that the pulpy results will come out a tasty brew.
