Enter a new dimension of video game warfare with Super Battletank 2. Take control of the army's consummate battletank, the M1A2.

This tank is loaded with an expanded arsenal of sophisticated weaponry, including infrared capabilities for ruthless night combat and an onboard camera that displays full-motion video of enemy acquisition and termination! Stunning animated sequences come alive with lifelike SCUD and Patriot missile launches and F-15 airstrikes that strafe and bomb the background.

Traverse through 16 levels of heavily-mined and carefully-rendered desert enemy terrain. Keeping players in the thick of the action are ally refueling and rearming bases. Players direct their tanks military overhauls.

Following up on the tracks of last year's hit SNES game, this sequel has even more missions and challenges, along with heavy doses of arcade shoot-em-up action that give it a wider range of appeal. Ten-hut!

Desert Demolition

You command an M1A2 Battle- tank, the most technologically advanced ground-based fighting vehicle ever created. Civilians needn't shy away from this game, though, because it's not a stiff, heavy-handed war game. As in the original Super Battletank, the programmers are extremely faithful to every detail of the real tank, but the game interface is very user-friendly.

ProTips:

  • Use the flash of your opponent's fire and the radar map to target enemies through a smoke screen.
  • Immediately hit a full reverse if you come to a minefield. Don't try navigating through it, because you don't stand a chance. The only safe route out Is directly back the way you came.

All the action is viewed from a first-person perspective in the tank cockpit. The clearly illustrated control panel shows all the important features of the tank, including weaponry, radar, speedometer, and fuel. You move within a 3D environment, which you view through the main and side windows. Your secondary view is via the Radar Map.

  • The M1A2 is not intended for close combat. You need some range between yourself and your enemy in order to hit your target. The optimal range is situating your enemy right below the horizon line.

It gives you a birds-eye view of the entire mission terrain, tracking not only your movement, but that of all enemy elements.

Sixteen hard-core missions pit you against a wide array of enemies, such as Soviet T-72 tanks, SCUD missile launchers, armored jeeps, and armored assault choppers. To help you tackle such tough adversaries, your tank's arsenal has high-powered weaponry and defense systems that include smoke screens, Air Support, and Patriot Air Defense Missiles. Allied Supply Depots also appear on certain missions.

Plot the most fuel-efficient route through the battlefield in order to engage all the enemies and objectives with as little unnecessary movement as possible.

On-Target

Although the graphic range is limited in the tank cockpit, it realistically recreates the atmosphere of tension and claustrophobia of actual tank battle. The sound effects are limited, but they're well executed. This game does get a chance to strut its Super NES- powered audio-visual muscle, though, with an impressive full-motion startup sequence.

Super Battletank 2 is extremely challenging and may prove frustrating at times. As in true warfare, you don't have a difficulty select or customizable options. If you crash and burn, that's it. Fortunately, the programmers were kind enough to grant a password feature.

  • Attack enemy bases last, after you've removed all other possible mobile enemies.
  • You can still be attacked by enemies while you view the computer radar display. Always return to the cockpit view when you come close to engaging an enemy.

Tanks for the Fun

Super Battletank 2 is a welcome change of pace from the fight games hogging the market. Although it's fashioned with an easy shoot-em-up interface, this game is really a very engaging and challenging puzzle. You've got to accomplish a task and stay alive against immense odds. This game takes no prisoners in its campaign for 16-bit fun!
