Abrams Battle Tank Description

Abrams Battle Tank, aka M-1 Abrams Battle Tank for the Sega version, is a computer game developed by Dynamix and published by Electronic Arts in 1988 for the DOS and Sega Genesis platforms. Designed by Damon Slye, the game is a 3D simulation of the M1 Abrams tank, one of the first on the market.

Although the simulation depicts the four crew positions, game-play is not actually very realistic; the missions are arcade game-like with a fixed sequence of actions to perform, the tank has the (implausible) ability to shoot down helicopters, and so forth. The graphics were very good for their time, but reviews are mixed, with many players enjoying the "fun factor" introduced by the lack of realism, and others decrying it for the same reason.
