Critic Reviews for World of Warplanes
World of Warplanes is not bad, but it's not nearly as exciting as World of Tanks. It's a sometimes enjoyable, occasionally tiresome arcade shooter that's forgiving to fly and a challenge to master. Compared to its smart, successful older brother, it's not nearly as sophisticated and, most importantly, it's not nearly as much fun.
Bravado is no match for sound dogfighting strategy in World of Warplanes. But beware of kamikaze jerks!
With lovely graphics and great matchmaking stability, World of Warplanes remains entertaining even as its simplicity wears thin.
A ton of unlockable planes and exciting dogfights overshadow World of Warplanes' tendency towards repetition.
With only one game mode, early adopters of the game will have to wait for a little while until Wargaming begins supporting it with more content. That said, it's an inevitability that this will happen, and at its core WoWP is a very fun, addictive game,that is destined to carve itself out an ardent fanbase.
World of Warplanes has a studio that prides itself on supporting its games long term, so I have no doubt that Wargaming will continue to improve upon the formula. In the meantime, it would be a good idea to give both Warplanes and War Thunder a try and see which one you like best.
While the base game can get a little repetitive at times, there's every reason to expect that World of Warplanes will see the same ongoing upgrades that Wargaming brings to World of Tanks, with new aircraft, battlegrounds, and game modes.
