Critic Reviews for Operation: Tango

Operation: Tango is a clever and appealing take on a co-op spy experience, although it's short and not really as replayable as it may appear.

Read full review

Stimulating, entertaining and entirely devoted to collaboration between players, Operation: Tango is a cooperative adventure that offers a good number of puzzles but that shows also several technical and artistic imperfections.

The ultimate spy fantasy for two people, Operation: Tango is unique, varied and an absolute must play.

It packs quite a lot in to its short runtime, with plenty of variety making for a unique set of levels. The game does struggle with frame rate here and there, especially playing as the agent, but it generally looks and sounds good, and the Hint system is a nice touch if you need a pointer or two. Despite some small setbacks, Operation: Tango is well worth a try if you're after a co-op kick.

Operation: Tango is an exclusively cooperative adventure that perfectly follows the trail of productions such as We Were Here. The idea of impersonating a pair of spies is intriguing, but in fact those who operate in the field will have as much to do with terminals and computer systems as their fellow hacker. The result is a pleasant, but very narrow experience that wears out quickly, despite the exclusive sections dedicated to the two characters.

A short but wildly enjoyable puzzle game.

It really does take two to tango, and I truly enjoyed cracking codes, stopping aggressors and breaking down mainframes alongside my partner. The tasks make for a unique and unpredictable experience, emphasizing the importance of critical thinking and how well you work under pressure. If you and a friend are looking for a quick game to play, Operation: Tango is worth a shot.

Operation: Tango gets the look and feel of being a secret agent team absolutely right, with a cool soundtrack to boot. But it’s held back by its hit-and-miss gameplay, which can range from super cool to frustrating. A longer campaign may have let the gameplay expand and deepen, but with only 6 short missions and little replay value, it ends up feeling a little shallow. The upside is, this makes the game a perfect candidate for some DLC.
