This multi-genre military action game puts player in the seat of tactical commander of mechanized forces. Starting as Cadet, you'll raise your career from the rookie, when you should perform actions by yourself in different vehicles, to the ultimate elite, when you should act as a Tactical genius.
There are three kinds of combat simulations:
MBT (main battle tank M1A1 Abrams), where in first-person view you should sit in tank's cockpit, command your gunner and driver, and eliminate surrounding enemies;
FAV (fast attack vehicle XR311), where in third-person view you should drive your vehicle in desert, shoot scattered obstacles and enemy helicopters, and avoid the bombs dropped from the skies ;
ADAT (air defense anti-tank M1132A), where in first-person view you should shoot air and ground enemies, surrounding your statical position.
Performing useful actions in each mode, you'll gain points, and gathering 5,000 points in each mode will give you a seat of Tactical Commander. Here you'll be able to continue your actions on the field, or perform some tactical moves using the map, which is very similar to the territory, including and surrounding Western Germany.
Good conversion of Access Software's C64 oldie Heavy Metal. The game covers three different combat vehicles, recreated in three different action games. All three are military shoot'em ups - Access style. There's a "Main Battle Tank" sequence with a pseudo-simulation touch. A so-called "Fast Attack Vehicle" scene, which is pretty much a dodge and shoot racing game. And last but not least an "Air Defence Anti Tank" sequence, where you've got to engage waves of enemy fighters and tanks with missiles and gun-fire. Once qualified for higher orders, the game also offers a tactical part - nothing too exciting, though. Overall a nice game, but don't expect anything simulation-like. It's a pure action game.
