Bravado is no match for sound dogfighting strategy in World of Warplanes. But beware of kamikaze jerks!

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.

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.

World of Warplanes is flying in familiar skies as World of Tanks launched in a similar state – a solid foundation on which Wargaming built the most successful MMOs in existence. From beautiful airplane models and solid sound work, to a very accessible flight model that works for any skill level, World of Warplanes is a worthy successor for Wargaming's stable of titles. It does need a bit more time in the hangar, but you can't beat the price of entry.

In the end, is World of Warplanes worth your time and possibly your hard-earned cash?  I think it is as it is fun and something different than the multitude of FPS's out in the market today, and certainly anyone who is an aircraft enthusiast should check it out.  Since the game is free to play – with a pay option for extra perks – I'd recommend giving it a shot. Strap yourself in and take to the skies, you won't regret it.
