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.

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.

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 is a great multiplayer game. Though it is quite short it gives players a unique experience with both characters. There were some technical difficulties and errors, but Operation: Tango is a great, innovative, and unique multiplayer game, which allows players to have fun and engaging moments, while at the same time are trying not to ragequit because of each other's mistakes or jokes.

An engaging co-op adventure, capable of providing a few hours of healthy fun thanks to a decent variety of situations and fun mini-games. Something more could definitely be done on the longevity front, but given the price and the presence of the Friend Pass, this is a flaw on which you can turn a blind eye if you are looking for an exciting and full of puzzles adventure with which to spend a couple of evenings with a friend.

Operation Tango offers what hit games like It Takes Two lacked: a real challenge. The separate screens and the puzzles that can't be solved at first glance make teams communicate with each other efficiently and thoughtfully to get ahead. The puzzles, while not unsolvably difficult, do require thinking around the corner a time or two. We hope that this innovative approach will be followed by many more, because despite the shortness of the title and the somewhat meager story, we had this above all: a lot of fun and a lot of brain training.

A short but wildly enjoyable puzzle game.
