Critic Reviews for World of Warships
World of Warships does have a few small hitches, but they're easily manageable. Ultimately, the excitement that comes from commanding powerful ships during explosive battles on the high seas overshadows these faults. The thrills that await, along with the promise of unlocking advanced ships down the road, make World of Warships an enticing expedition into the sometimes turbulent waters of free-to-play games.
With a host of additional features like Ranked Battles, night fights, weather events, clan warfare, and more factions scheduled to hit the high seas shortly after launch, World of Warships offers veteran MMO captains and World of War newbies alike a lot to write home about – in this case, loose lips float ships.
World of Warships starts out well. The game is fast, it looks good, and it's fun. Progress soon comes to a crawl, however, and the repetitive grinding, off-set only by a convoluted Free-to-Play system, dampens the experience in ways that the superb graphics and quick multiplayer matchmaking do little to offset.
Wargaming seems to have a knack for finding what is simply fun in large scale battles and bringing out our inner kid who played in the backyard or the bath tub pretending to wage war with toys. Where Warships really shines is in the ease of play, notable polish and quick battles that anyone can enjoy. You can't go wrong with the price of free either, and there really is nothing quite like World of Warships available.
