With the upcoming release of the Free to Play TANK! TANK! TANK! I was wondering what people that have paid for the game already think. Is this game worth getting the whole experience and buying the disk? Or should we invest in the F2P version to only get the best features available and skip some of the disappointing content?

This means I can finally get the game! Almost no consumer could have convinced themselves compared to other games to spend 60 bucks on this game in particular, so it's cool to see Namco Bandai reacting relatively quickly to this.

Try a XENOBLADE CHRONICLES X LET'S PLAY now for the cost of nothing! : D

It's actually worth $60 for the local multiplayer, actually.

Looking at my Wii U activity log, I've got Mass Effect 3 at #1, then Warriors Orochi 3, MiiVerse, and Tank Tank Tank.

I already have the retail version which I paid 23 quid for at launch. Wonder of the total price works out cheaper on DL. It's an underrated blast.

I'm not necessarily disagreeing, but it was doomed to fail as a full retail game. Honestly F2P has a much better chance of making them some money.

Absolutely. I hope it makes 'em a bundle.

Well after playing around a bit it seems that the main strength of this game is multiplayer and yet there's no online support? That seems like a big missed opportunity. The fact that you take little photos in funky virtual headgear to identify yourself is screaming out for online play!

For shame. I'd like to think that Namco would patch in support for online play, but if not I'm afraid I'll pass.

The main strength is local multiplayer. Online wouldn't work for this kind of game.

No, thats how free-to-play is supposed to work. It's a different way to make money. You can still play the game, you only have to pay if you want more.

I will never understand why gamers get so upset with the idea that they should pay money to the people that make the games.

It's like you people want your favourite developers and publishers to go out of business. Because you'd rather pay nothing for dozens of hours of entertainment than a couple of dollars for it.

Yeah I'm downloading it at the moment just to see what all the fuss is about... Disappointed about no online though.

The main strength looks like arcade multiplayer with everyone having their own screens, but you're not going to get that at home unless it's two-player, so I think online would be a nice compromise. I don't see how "it doesn't work" though. You're playing team or versus in quick rounds - where's the incompatibility? Just because the game is short doesn't mean that wouldn't be fun. You could have an online tournament mode.

TANK! TANK! TANK is an exclusive Wii U special version of a modern arcade game isn't it?
With the F2P download you get 3 free plays a day for Monster Battle, Free-For-All, and Team Versus modes. (Up to 5 players)
In the arcade you would pay some bucks for three credits, especially when playing with 5 players (I don't know if that's even possible in the arcade).

Anyway, I need someone with the retail version to confirm if these 10 DLC packs make the game complete, after all it's possible they're holding some DLC back for later.

Because fun in this game is in the social interactions, moreso than the game itself.

Beers, friends, and hours of play time.

Much like Smash Brothers. Even if the fighting was lag free, the online experience will always pale compared to local multi.
