2 Stars out of 4

Tiny Tank is a great character. Designed by Raphael Reyes, Steve Ross, and Mira Ross, Tiny Tank is like a smart-mouthed version of the little engine that could. His movie scenes are fairly amusing, if only due to the bleeped curse words. The game play itself is less fun.

The standard stuff is there. You jump, fire weapons, dodge and roll left or right… but there is something new. Press Circle to deploy the teeny weeny tanks.

During the game, you must collect three kinds of debris. Nanometal increases your regenerative powers. P-Brains allow you to deploy teeny weeny tanks. All other debris serves as weapon up-grades for your tank.

While each level has its own look and feel, you don't appreciate it as much as you do in Banjo or Crash Bandicoot 2. You will be extremely irritated at the fact that you can't aim vertically - only horizontally. To aim at high enemies, you must find a hill and use that to point up. This tank needs to go back to the shop. He's not ready for battle.

Despite its flaws, Tiny Tank is decent enough. The ending is not as funny as some earlier scenes, but the Tiny Boy song is a nice treat. It's actually quite nice.
