Death on the Wing - World of Warplanes Beta Trailer
Autoplay On Off
Nov 20, 2013Like 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.
Nov 28, 2013Planes 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.
CD-ActionJan 10, 2014Not 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]

The game has very fast andWorld of Warplanes has often been thought of as the runt of the Wargaming litter, but I feel that's rather unfair. The game has very fast and frantic gameplay, with good emphasis on tactics. You may get into a dogfight with an enemy plane that out-turns you, while luring him into a descending tail chase at slower and slower speed, until you reach your optimum altitude and slam on the engine boost, leaving him in your dust as you set up for an attack run once he gets far enough away. The population issue is still noticeable, but there are now fairly competent bots as of update 1.9 that help to fill matches. Give it a try.… Expand

Nov 22, 2013Terrible game and quite frankly an insult to historical military aviation.
The subpar game engine is just not suitable for flight games,Terrible game and quite frankly an insult to historical military aviation.
The subpar game engine is just not suitable for flight games, which usually takes place on really big maps. However in WoWP you get unrealistic sense of speed (everything is way too slow), tiny maps, compressed service ceiling.
The flight physics are just abysmal. Drag, gravity, momentum? Warplanes never heard of that. The physics are as unrealistic as it can get, even Arcade games like Crimson Skies (2000!) or Blazing Angels have far more believable flight physics at least for Arcade standards.
Flying an aircraft in WoWP feels like forcing a brick through thick jelly. While the bad flight physics are one reason for this, the game engine has also significant input lag due to serverside controls. You're basically pressing a button, the command gets send to the server, gets send back and only then your aircraft starts to move. While this is only a matter of milliseconds, the delay is always noticable and makes quick reactions impossible. Also no support for TrackIR.
In terms of graphical fidelity this game is average at best. But, just like WoT, the engine isn't able to give you a stable amount of FPS. Once you're engaged in a huge dogfight, the framerate is going all over the place. This again is due to the lack of real multicore support of the game engine itself. Quite frankly this is inacceptable for the year of 2013.
The sound effects are hideous aswell. Nothing in this game sounds even remotely like its real life counterpart. Aircraft engines sound like lawnmowers, machineguns and cannons seem to resemble BB guns.
Remember when I said that this game is an insult for historical military aviation? The selection of aircraft is te biggest reason for this. Half of the techtrees are blueprints and prototypes, which never saw combat in WWII. This is just terrible for a game that claims to be "dedicated to World War II military aircraft". Famous planes like the Fw 190, Hawker Hurricane or P-47 Thunderbolt are still missing.
Gameplay wise WoWP also has almost nothing to offer. Only one gamemode which evolves into a huge furball sooner or later. There is not much room to maneuver due to the incredibly small maps. The hitpoint system is just stupid and makes no sense whatsoever in aerial combat, since more often than not victory is determined by bigger healthbars and bigger damage output and not by your individual flying skills.
A 4 out of 10. There is room for certain improvements but quite frankly this game already took a wrong direction from the very beginning. Fans of historical military aviation should avoid this game at its current state.… Expand

Generally the game feels and plays very plastic-model style, with no flight or bullet physics whatsoever.
I recommend you try the competitor game instead which is far better for any standards. (I think you know which game im speaking about) I did start with wowp but then swiched to another game and was very happy.
By itself the game deserves a 5.. but in context of competition no more than 3… Expand
