Critic Reviews for World of Tanks

7.5 / 10.0

World of Tanks might have a silly name, but it does something impressive. It manages to straddle pure tank simulation and shooter action to produce something that, despite being flawed, remains genuinely fun.

The game is progressing well and constantly seeing new maps and new tanks added, with a whole slew of French units soon to be released.

When it comes to blowing up military monstrosities, no game does it better than World of Tanks.

World of Tanks is an entertaining and enjoyable tactical shooter with a surprising amount of depth. If you're not prepared to pony up some cash, it does become a grind eventually – but if you reach that point and you still want to play, spending some money is very likely a worthwhile investment.

With new content coming out on a regular basis, I foresee myself being a tank jockey for a long time!

World of Tanks won't ever be more than a quick detour on the way to something that's easier to comprehend.

World of Tanks Blitz takes the core gameplay of its full-fat forebearers and translates it fairly successfully to Nintendo's hybrid platform. This one's not going to win any beauty pageants, it's highly repetitive, there are some balancing issues and a pretty essential comms system is MIA but, overall, there's still a decent game to get to grips with here – especially if you like tanks, which, as we've already established, everybody does. With a huge number of tanks, countless upgrades and none of the absolute essentials hidden behind the game's premium paywall, there's literally hundreds of hours of tank-blasting action to indulge in that's well worth checking out for the princely sum of zero.
