IndieGames announced their picks of "the very best strategy games of 2012" and our beloved War of the Human Tanks is at the fourth place.
"War of the Human Tanks would definitely head our top named games list of 2012, but, alas, we have prepared no such thing for you dear readers. We will though suggest you give this strategy/visual novel hybrid a go and see what you can do with its cast of armored humanoid weapons and simple yet deep RTS mechanics. The game includes over 30 maps of tactical challenges and even allows players to use resources earned from combat to purchase new abilities and upgrades between battles in what can only be described as its strategy mode."
War of the Human Tanks is a story driven strategy game with a gameplay reminiscent of Battleship and Chess, featuring a story of war, loyalty, sacrifice and human shaped tanks.
This story takes place in a land vaguely reminiscent of modern-day Japan. In the twenty years since the first Human Tank was developed, the war raging between the Empire of Japon and the Kingdom of Japon has turned into a proxy war fought between Human Tanks on both sides.
The Empire of Japon once ruled the entire land of Japon. Now diminished and cornered, the Empire prepares to make its last stand as the tanks of the Kingdom of Japon draw close to its capital. Shoutaro Daihon’ei, Lieutenant of the Imperial Army moves out to the battlefield, followed closely by the loyal Human Tanks in his company.
* Fast-paced strategic battles in over 30 maps * Use resources earned from battles to develop new tanks * Customize your tanks with various modules to deadly effect * Multiple endings based on your performance * Replay the story keeping your previously earned units and resources * Free battle mode to practice and gather extra supplies * English localization features two all-new bonus maps, hand-drawn battle backgrounds and an improved user interface
4th placeTop 10 Indie Strategy Games of 2012 (IndieGames)
88/100, Pelit recommends:A fast-paced and original strategy game that modernizes the classic game of Battleship. (Pelit magazine)
4.5/5War of the Human Tanks is a truly excellent title. Despite some overly lengthy dialogue, the storytelling is engaging and humorous and it's matched with action which is a heck of a blast. (A Role Model - Paul Harrison)
8.5/10War of the Human Tanks is a welcome addition to the tactical gamer's catalog. I think I'll be spending quite a bit of time with this one. (John Ahlberg - So Last Gen)
3.5/5It's absolutely a worthy title in its own right. The character banter is thoroughly entertaining, augmented by solid combat. (Clark A. - Digitally Downloaded)
Different in a strangely appealing way; and as a wargame, it is nicely designed and quite tense.[/i] (Costik - Play This Thing)
If you're a military buff with a thing for anime then you'll definitely be interested in War of the Human Tanks. (Matthew Kim - Twinfinite)
If you are into Fire Emblem or Advance Wars, this will be a game you can buy without regrets. (Matt Broitman - Halfbeard's HUD)
It’s a weird mix of candy coated hyperactive “moe” madness and soulful ruminations on the socially problematic nature of tanks with minds of their own, and I can’t decide if it’s slightly brilliant or just the dumbest thing that’s ever happened. For whatever it’s worth, though, the translation seems competent. (Nathan Grayson - Rock, Paper, Shotgun)
Gaming thrives on its diversity (in both subject matter and mechanics), so if this title can fill an 'anime styled strategy game with musings on the expendable nature of soldiers and a neat line in twisted dialogue' shaped void then it's bound to make someone sit up and take notice. (Peter Parrish - incgamers.com)
While the action of the game is fast-paced and filled with blazing aggression, the battles are also very short and punctuated. They are an absolute joy, with fluid animations, barreling music that sets a strong tone, and really solid strategy mechanics. (AJ Dellinger - Gamezebo)
I'm going to keep playing this game because I want to. And if that doesn't express my feelings in the simplest of terms I don't know what will. (Alex Kende - GameTrender)
WAR OF THE HUMAN TANKS Is A Very Good Name (Alec Meer - Rock, Paper, Shotgun)
War of the Human Tanks est un jeu qui s'annonce impératif pour tous les fans de stratégie, d'Advance Wars et autre Fire Emblem. (Ripper - Game Side Story)
3.5/5Pour un peu qu’on aime l’humour manga décalé et le chara-design SD, War of the Human Tanks est un jeu très attachant et sympathique. Ce qui n’enlève rien à ses combats demandant réflexion et stratégie pour atteindre la victoire et surtout limiter ses pertes. (Ever - Playitlive.fr)
8.5/10Normalmente detesto los juegos de estrategia, los detesto con una increíble fuerza y son raros aquellos a los que les doy entrada mayor a1 semana en mi presencia pero War of Human Tanks se siente diferente,ya sea por su sencillez (en sistema y dificultad) o por su bien planteada historia "animesosa" ¡¡¡HUMAN TANKS ME HACE RECUPERAR LA FE!!! (XZero - Dangeru)
