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.

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.

An asymmetric multiplayer espionage adventure, Operation: Tango is a game that demands co-operation and requires good communication. The non-linear difficulty curve can make some puzzles feel out of place but that doesn’t prevent it from being a gratifying, fun frolic through a charming series of missions.

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.

Anyone that loves a good co-op experience and a puzzle game will get a fantastic afternoon out of Operation: Tango filled with yelling, cheering and the kind of frustrated sighs that only build better friendships and make better spies.
