    It can get a little hectic and the game's multiplayer modes don't seem quite as polished as what you get with "TimeSplitters" and "Unreal Tournament," but it's very fun nonetheless and is an good option for those who want more than just a first-person shooter.

    If your'e looking for an off-the-wall spot of multiplayer fun, WDL may be just the ticket. Otherwise, you may want to rent before plopping down 50 big ones.
  3. 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.

    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.
  5. 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.
  6. While this magnificently dumb galoot blatantly treads on common ground, it leaves a lasting trail of wreckage that gamers will happily follow.
  7. Like a "Battletanx" meets WWF type of game; instead of the whole game being based around a B-Movie type plot, the game is based around an intense post-apocalyptic battle tournament.

    Remember that PS1 game "Independence Day" from the movie... Well this game is just like that... only more of a waste of graphics and time.
