Tango 5 The Last Dance Review: It's Turn-based, Simple, and Excellent
The attention that Nexon has given to make the game as realistic looking as possible is definitely one of the most attractive aspects of Tango 5. All intricacies have been simplified and the final presentation of the game is just absolutely stunning. The arena in which the game is set up has also been worked out really well; what is perhaps the highlight is that there are too many complex structures but rather an extremely simple looking yet challenging gaming environment which makes it all the more an interesting feature of the game. One of the most commendable things that must be attention is the characters. The characters in this game form the very crux of it and they have been perfected to the inch. The attention to the detail with respect to the height ratio, the facial features, the hair etc are extremely evident during gameplay and this also gives them a very brutish and deadly touch. The very macho touch that has been given to the characters definitely adds up to the various advantages of the game but for some reason the macho element portrayed by the characters doesn’t quite match well with the title of the game.
Since the game hasn’t launched globally it is only playable in Korean and this can become quite an issue for those who want to play the game. But don’t worry, you’ll still get to experience all the features of the game but just won’t be able to quite place your head as to what the real story is. The tutorial element inserted in Tango 5 is quite helpful and very well worked. It categorically guides you through the basics and techniques of the game. There are two separate tutorials; one to help you understand the basics such as movements, how to target and shoot etc. The other tutorial guides you on how to play the game which involves playing the game on a turn base, to capture the various strategic points so as to win the game.
The controls that are featured in Tango 5 are extremely simple which makes the game quite fun to play. Your characters can be moved around within a permitted limit of the arena which is represented by a set number of grids. Tapping on the desired grid will make your character move into that particular position and fight. The same method of control also applies while for targeting and shooting your opponents. Players will have to select their desired weapon from the inventory list which is placed on the right hand of the strip in a vertical manner so as to give more space to gameplay. Tapping on your opponent will target him and the character will fire his weapon automatically. Sounds quite easy doesn’t it? It becomes quite the challenge when you actually play the game and you will have to strategize properly in order to win the game.
When Nexon had released the game in its beta phase there were twelve characters which had been made available. However, as of now there are 16 playable characters which are featured in Tango 5. Each and every single character are very well deigned and carry with them a ferocious look which makes the game extremely fun to play. Characters adorn roles such as a police, a swat member, a mercenary and also a well styled butcher. Each character has a unique ability and plays in a completely different manner from one other. Some of them even have a dog as their sidekick which makes it quite enjoyable. The weapons that each of them possess are also well designed and unique to the gaming style of that character. Tango 5 initially unlocks and allows you to use three characters from the total. The remainder of them can be bought using coins which you will earn after winning a match.
Tango 5: The Last Dance has a unique form of gameplay and is one which has to be played and experienced. The game features a 5 v 5 real time PvP turn based battle. The players are teamed up and pitched together in an arena and are given 90 seconds per round to conquer that arena. There are three points which have to be captured by the players by defeating the enemy in order to win the match. The team which captures the most number of points in that 90 seconds will win that particular round. However, there are three rounds which take place and the winner of the match is the one who wins the most number of rounds. The game has been crafted in such a manner that you will have to strategize in order to win. Players will have to take cover and hold strategic position so as to advance to the point which to has to be taken. Once reached, they will have to hold that position till the end of the game. If you have already taken up that point and your enemy comes and defeats you then you will lose your control over that. There are also health boxes which are placed at different locations which will increase your overall HP once consumed.
Unlike all the other traditional turn based games players will just have to wait for the cool down period to end as opposed to the other players turn. After every move or every shot there is a particular cool down period and it is only after this ends that you can make your next move. So this feature is one which kind of forces you to strategize your every move like taking fire, your movements and taking cover. And remember, you only have 90 seconds to do all this and win the round. So the pressure does kick up the adrenaline to keep you glued to the game for a long time.
