    This game excels in its simplicity, anyone should be able to pick up a controller and play without the problem of a learning curve. Players only need to worry about two things: 1. driving; and 2. shooting. The story mode can get a become boring but if you are a gamer used to anything with a "grind", i.e. MMORPG's, you'll feel right at home unlocking all the medals.

Tank! are: 1. Co-op limits you second player to use the same tank regardless of what you've unlocked; 2. Multiplayer requires you to retake pictures of each other before the start of each round; 3. and the ability to rotate your turret during movement is not an available feature. Overall it is a fun game but when placed against Nintendoland as a party title it's hard to measure up to the competition. Collapse

    A great game to play with friends, Tank Tank Tank's biggest flaw is just that. The game relies way too much on local multiplayer.
    Single player mode gets rather repetitive and with no online, the game is doomed a a forgettable footnote in the WiiU's launch.

    It's frustrating to pick and choose the photo before entering combat. The game tries to make the controls are easy (using only the d-pad and buttons) and before starting the combat the controls are explained but when you are in a combat the tank rotates without using the d-pad and then realizes that turning the control the tank rotates causing frustration.

    Kids will probably like this game. Gamers wont like this game. It can be fun to play with non-gamer friends in short bursts, but theres just not a whole lot to go off of. An hour of gameplay and youve seen everything there is to see. However, the gameplay is frantic and fun, and if you play with casual gamer friends, it can be a fun way to pass some time.

    A simple shoot 'em game that is childhood arcade fun for the kids and a great game to pick up for adults and join in the fun with no practice. Good luck. Have a fun time.

    This game is fun for adults and kids. It does not deserve anything less than 6/10. Multiplayer battles are great with friends and family. Kong battles will provide lots of amusement, enemy capabilities unknown. Single player mode is fine in short bursts, you will need tactics and skill to go far in this mode. If this game had online player battles it would have been a huge hit. I would sayThis game is fun for adults and kids. It does not deserve anything less than 6/10.

    Tanks is good fun as a multiplayer game with a bunch of people that just want to shoot at each other. Worth a laugh and is now free on the eShop. Worth a try and good fun, especially with younger children.

    Aside from a few moments of tank on robot action, Tank! Tank! Tank! fails to live up to the promise of its gloriously stupid name. [March 2013, p.84]

    An awful game that does nothing for Wii U and less for your sanity. [Feb 2013, p.75]
