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 converse to how correct Tank Mechanic Simulator is. What I can say, nonetheless, is that I discovered this recreation much more pleasant than I had anticipated. Don’t get me unsuitable, this isn’t Fury, and I definitely don’t appear like Brad Pitt after spending hours constructing tanks, however there’s undoubtedly so much to love about Tank Mechanic Simulator, tank-enthusiast or not.
Tank Mechanic Simulator follows the sample of different sims. You assume the chosen career — on this case, tank mechanic — and also you get straight to work. First, go online to your laptop, await it besides 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 notably 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 nearly comforting, serving to me overlook the stress of scrolling by Netflix for hours in the hunt 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 recreation you’re by no means wanting work. Finally you get to a degree the place you possibly can pay another person to do the excavations and extra monotonous duties for you. The place Tank Simulator actually comes into its personal, nonetheless, 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 recreation 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 recreation is extremely dense, even intimidating at occasions, 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 all the time clear what you’re presupposed to be doing and what you’re deciding on. Greater than the rest, the UI makes it very clear this recreation was not designed for the Nintendo Change, however as a substitute 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 point out off your laborious 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 be on the desk. Clearly, it doesn’t turn into World of Tanks, however it’s undoubtedly a pleasant contact.
Tank Mechanic Simulator, like most sims, is an extremely in-depth recreation by which you would simply spend hours upon hours. There’s a lot to do, and all the time one other restoration or excavation to deal with as you proceed to develop your museum. If you happen to’re a tank fanatic, then this can be a must-buy. Nonetheless, should you solely have a passing curiosity in tanks, then there’s nonetheless loads of content material to sink your enamel into, it simply might not be as rewarding.
