Tron-inspired tank battle game
A quick note: this game uses DirectPlay, it's a depreciated program but still works. If it's not already installed from another game, Microsoft will download it for you, but Skype and certain anti-virus software (such as Kaspersky and Avast) will block installation. Just close Skype and turn off your anti-virus temporarily to install DirectPlay, then turn back on. DirectPlay won't interfere with the operation of these programs after it's installed.
While not perfect, Tank Universe is fun to play, has a retro Tron-inspired aesthetic, and an intriguing story.You play a new recruit in a rebel army where tank battles and capture the flag is the order of the day. The combat is actually more fun then your average point-and-kill gameplay; the tank shells have weight and travel in an arc, so you need to adjust for distance and lead the target to actually hit things.
The graphics are a bit unpolished, even for a Tron-aesthetic. Human models in particular are rough around the edges and poorly modeled with limited animation. That isn't a big deal as the meat of the game is running around shooting stuff in a tank.
For the price, it's a pretty solid game. I've heard the frame rate is capped at 30, which may be an issue for some people, and I ran into the issue I mentioned the solution to above, but it was an easy fix.
