    Like an insane stunt pilot in the Red Bull Air Race, World of Warplanes manages to leave an excellent impression. But Wargaming has to keep proving themselves in the future if they want us to remain impressed. It's easy to find great satisfaction, however, when you roam the game's skies with Ride of the Valkyries on the background, while you're bringing death and destruction in your own personal aircraft.

    Wargaming learned perfectly from World of Tanks how to manage a free to Play game and World of Warplanes simply expands the base concepts of the previous game.

    If you've got some friends to battle with this games holds many hours of fun. With better controls and more variety in its contents the experience would have been better, but still it delivers its promise of intense and fast action.

    Planes for tanks, not much else has changed. Enjoy hundreds of lovingly recreated planes, just don't expect a simulation or the plethora of features of its time-tested precursor and you'll find this to be a worthwhile package with a fair business model.

    Not only will World of Tanks fans enjoy Wargaming’s new game. The gameplay is simple yet satisfying – you can feel the differences between planes, but some crude elements distinctive to hard core simulators were avoided. [01/2014, p.44]

    World of Warplanes will continue to evolve, now let’s await the third and final game of the World trilogy, Battleships.

    World of Warplanes needs fleshing out. In time it could be what arcade flight buffs are after but at the moment it's lacking.

    Best fun I've had with friends in ages! Great game! It's fast and furious! Just love the airplane models and some of the maps are downright beautiful. Expand

    Fun game. Easy to learn, hard to master. Don't listen too hard to QQers about "pay2win" the game is anything but. You can buy planes for that are intentionally designed to have worse performance than planes earned through playing the game. The only real benefit of spending cash would be to reduce the amount of grinding as premium accounts earn increased experience per game. All in all the game is very fun, fast paced arcade flight game. Don't confuse this game with a flight simulator, it is not designed around realism, only historical accuracy. Expand

    Very nice game, a lot of fun and easy to start a match! Love the sound, the maps (they're beautiful!!) and the plane models. You want to have fun with friends? Download this free-to-play game!! Expand

    World of Warplanes is set out similar to it's tanking counterpart, but does not achieve what World of Tanks does.
    Essentially unfinished,
    this game provides somewhat moderate gameplay, and lacks the variety that World of Tanks throws at you.
    Although not a bad game, this does not reach the standard that the audience should like to see accomplished.
    5/10 - Ben Hazelden

    I was playing this game for a while but lately I have decided to delete it. it's not really do to a bad game, just bad player and plane match up. The problem with it is that most of the payers now are in group play and just gang up on everyone. it makes for very short play times and very long wait to play times.
    They should not match planes up with higher tier planes as you do not have a ghosts chance in hell of even getting one kill this way and should make grouped players only play against other groups. this way they would still have to fly the plane instead of just ganking for kills.
    Don't fly American planes as they seem to think they could only fire about 100 rounds without the guns overheating and misfiring.
    Maybe if they rethink the way they match planes up and the way they fire I will give this game another go but not until then.
    Oh yea and if you want to play this game be prepared to spend money on it as it is a pay to win game not really FTP.
    Have fun and I will just go back to my flight sims for good air play instead of wasting time on this.
