Desert Thunder is an arcade-style action tank game for the PC. Ripped from today’s headlines, the storyline immerses players into the heat of a desert-based military conflict. Players will tear through desert, urban and industrial settings in their experimental battle engine, the Abrams M1A6 Advanced tank that’s loaded with awe-inspiring devastating weapons and armored to near indestructibility. You are the commander of a top secret M1A6 experimental tank division in the Armor Task Force. Your mission was to lead the northern front of Operation Desert Thunder, a secret military operation to overthrow a terrorist faction that has taken control of a peaceful Middle Eastern country. Your mission has been compromised, your small battalion devastated. Left with no alternative, you must complete your mission to reach the capital city and rendezvous with allied forces.

 さて、敵を発見しました。主砲を撃ってみましょう。なかなか当りません。こちらの砲弾には重力が作用します。遠くに向って打ってみると、砲弾は重力に引かれて、目標の遥か手前で地面に落ちるのが分かります。照準が画面に表示されていますが、これは 重力の影響を無視した場合に砲弾の飛んで行く方向 を示したものにすぎません。したがって、プレイヤーは敵との距離を目測で判断し、それに合せて主砲の角度を上下に調整して撃つ必要があります。敵との距離を測定する方法は目測以外なく、レーザー照準装置など、第二次世界大戦以降のテクノロジーは装備されていません。まあ、接近戦に持って行けば、その必要は少なくなるのですが。熟練したプレイヤーなら、敵が反応しない遠距離から放物線を描くように砲弾を打ち込み、一方的に敵を撃破することも可能です。通常弾は弾数制限がありませんので、打ちまくってみましょう。なかなか楽しいですよ。

In Desert Thunder you control an experimental tank and are asked to single-handedly liberate a country from a terrorist threat: you do so by basically blowing up everything as you move through levels.
The result is sadly a very arcadey game with dull gameplay, awkward controls and little variety.


-can be mildly fun for the first minutes

-considering its age the game had a decent amount of destructible objects

-shells have bullet drop

-the voice acting isn't too bad


-extremely repetitive gameplay gets dull fast

-forgettable soundtrack

-barebones, cliched story

-the tank controls awkwardly

-problematic camera

-poor AI

-meager enemy variety

-quite a bit of clipping

Desert Thunder is a one-trick pony with a pretty lousy trick: it asks you to stay interested for the two hours it takes to beat it by simply throwing wave after wave of enemies and hoping you'll be happy with all the resulting explosions. Don't expect any tactics, deep gameplay or interesting missions: what you see in the first minutes is all you get: now, this'd be good for some if the gameplay was at least decent but sadly it has a plethora of problems.

For starters the tank controls very badly as it slides around, has no traction, an huge turning circle and will stop abruptly if you hit a small slope or a wooden sign: its turret also can't rotate 360 degrees making it difficult to properly engage enemies behind you. The awkward controls are paired with sections where you need to zigzag between mines or ostacles (sometimes under fire) and this gets annoying fast. The camera also moves jerkily whenever you hit something of a different height and this can get either confusing or downright nausea inducing.

Pair the aforementioned problems with a lack of enemy variety- all sporting a braindead AI- and extremely repetitive missions and you'll easily see how Desert Thunder is a dull, forgettable experience that you can safely skip.

As of I'm writing this review I've played only half of the levels but I personally think it's enough to justify the game if it's good or not.

Unfortunately, the answer for this game being good or bad is that this game is bad. Really bad. The basic gameplay mechanics are there. Movement, shooting, enemies, different kind of destructable enviroments and... well, to be honest that's pretty much it. There's really nothing to the game other than moving, shooting enemies and different kinds of obstacles.

If I can sum up the whole game into a couple of sentences it pretty weak game. Desert Thunder is one of those games that you buy when you are drunk and then play it, get drunk again and cry for spending money on this...

I couldn't even start the game because the menu was so unresponsive to my mouse that i couldn't even start the damn game, seriously i could have draged my mouse over a highway and it would've maybe moved an inch on the screen if i was lucky.

It doesn't seem from the looks of things though that i would need to even start this game and play it to tell that this game isn't good. I just needed the unresponsive main menu to convince me.

How do you fail and make an unresponsive main menu?!

Older graphics but still not horrible on the eyes that games that just aren't made properly are. Controls are fine and I am not even a person that likes drive vehicles in games. In regards to AI well if you sit around in range the tanks will hit you and as for the guys firing off rocket launchers they mean business. They are accurate with their shots. Oh and when you hit the enemy their deaths are rewarding despite the older graphics. The soundtrack to me totally fits the game and is a plus. The destructable environment is nice and hey if you hit a landmine you are going to feel in terms of being damaged. I think this game is a nice game to have in my library as it straight up gives me something different from other games I have. I think this would be a nice addition to others gaming libraries too. Now as for what I would pay for it well I think it is all up to the person and quite frankly I don't want to put a price on the fun I had. I can say yes I recommend this game.
