Very similar to most individuals (I believe), my data of tanks is kind of restricted. By ‘restricted’, I imply I watched Fury about 4 years in the past, and that’s the premise of 100% of my info. Moreover, I’m not a mechanic, so I can’t communicate to how correct Tank Mechanic Simulator is. What I can say, nevertheless, is that I discovered this sport much more pleasing than I had anticipated. Don’t get me improper, this isn’t Fury, and I definitely don’t appear like Brad Pitt after spending hours constructing tanks, however there may be undoubtedly rather a lot to love about Tank Mechanic Simulator, tank-enthusiast or not.
Tank Mechanic Simulator follows the sample of different sims. You assume the chosen occupation — on this case, tank mechanic — and also you get straight to work. First, go browsing to your pc, look ahead to it in addition up (which is a pleasant contact), after which get checking your emails — a welcome break for a lot of who already spend their days checking emails. There will probably be some jobs so that you can settle for, after which you may get began. These jobs will vary from excavations to fixing up rust buckets, neither of that are significantly thrilling or distinctive. All too typically I discovered myself feeling like I used to be caught in a repetitive loop, but I nonetheless loved it. It was virtually comforting, serving to me overlook the stress of scrolling by way of Netflix for hours looking for one thing new to look at.
If, like me, you benefit from the repetitive grind, you then’re in for a deal with . There’s a lot to do, even when it’s extra of the identical. I didn’t realise simply what number of tanks are in want of restore, however on this sport you’re by no means wanting work. Finally you get to a degree the place you may pay another person to do the excavations and extra monotonous duties for you. The place Tank Simulator actually comes into its personal, nevertheless, is the sheer quantity of tanks and renovations you are able to do. The extent of element, even to a rookie like me, appeared fairly astounding. This sport was clearly made by somebody with a keenness of battle machines.
My greatest recommendation to anybody who decides to don the overalls and climb underneath the chassis is to not skip the tutorial. Like most sims, this sport is extremely dense, even intimidating at instances, and the menus aren’t very clear. In handheld mode particularly, it’s tough to learn issues and make out the place precisely you’re pointing. On prime of that, it’s not at all times clear what you might be speculated to be doing and what you’re deciding on. Greater than anything, the UI makes it very clear this sport was not designed for the Nintendo Change, however as an alternative the PC. Getting Tank Mechanic Simulator onto the Change has include, understandably, some downgrades to the visuals. Too typically it is extremely tough to distinguish between the murky tones. Regardless of this, the tanks, that are actually the principle occasion, do nonetheless look sharp compared to the environments and the storage.
Not solely do you get to imagine the function of a tank mechanic, you additionally unlock a tank museum to indicate off your arduous work and restorations. It is a very nice contact and provides one other motivator. It’s additionally good enjoyable getting the aesthetic of your museum proper, and even deciding on posters to make sure it feels genuine. I do know I haven’t talked about it but, however in case you’re questioning, driving the tanks and making them go bang can also be on the desk. Clearly, it doesn’t change into World of Tanks, nevertheless it’s undoubtedly a pleasant contact.
Tank Mechanic Simulator, like most sims, is an extremely in-depth sport during which you might simply spend hours upon hours. There’s a lot to do, and at all times one other restoration or excavation to deal with as you proceed to develop your museum. Should you’re a tank fanatic, then this can be a must-buy. Nevertheless, in case you solely have a passing curiosity in tanks, then there may be nonetheless loads of content material to sink your tooth into, it simply might not be as rewarding.
