World of Warplanes
Beautiful settings and crisp plane detail.
Ganging up on rival planes and shooting them down is a lot of fun.

Limited play modes and map variety.
Matches grow repetitive over time.
Only one game mode at the time of writing.

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...60

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.70

World of Warplanes is aiming to do exactly what War of Tanks did, but swapping grounded action for that of the aerial variety. With its forbearer attracting 60 million users, it's got a lot to live up to, and Wargaming will be hoping its blend of...65
