    The Ground Forces expansion makes War Thunder even bigger than it was already, an MMO F2P that lets you choose the war you want: simulation or arcade, air or ground, challenging or relaxing, competitive or cooperative, free or with fee, PC or PS4.

    Thanks to a wider variety of gameplay and game situations, War Thunder won the scepter of the best free-to-play in the skies of World War II.

    War Thunder delivers a deep, engaging experience, packed with plenty of missions and planes to unlock.

    While the initial learning curve is daunting, this is one of those games that opens up dramatically the more that you play it, so the time commitment is worthwhile whether you're a laidback dogfighter or a hardcore simmer.

    War Thunder is a free look at beautiful airplanes and intense dogfights, with controls that can be as arcady or realistic as you want them to be. The lack of certain content and the cluttered menu's stand in the way of a higher grade.

    It’s mostly the moments in between battles that bring the whole experience down, as a lack of information and poor menus tarnish this flying ace.

    Even as a beta release this is an impressively entertaining, and accessible, combat flight simulator, and a welcome break from the shoot ‘em-up norm.

    War thunder- it is one of the best ww2 games out there. It is also free and is on ps4 and the pc. If you can't us the ps4 controller to aimWar thunder- it is one of the best ww2 games out there. It is also free and is on ps4 and the pc. If you can't us the ps4 controller to aim you can just hook up a keyboard and mouse. It can be arcade or simulator. It combines everything world of tanks, and warplanes have and puts it into one. Plus I heard there will also be boats soon. All around a great game Expand

    Lol @ "you need 100s of dollars to get jets!" and the idiots complaining about physics that play arcade.

    The good: It's 100% free, you can
    Lol @ "you need 100s of dollars to get jets!" and the idiots complaining about physics that play arcade.

    The good: It's 100% free, you can max out most of tier 1&2 of every country without much effort. It starts to be a grind after tier3, but it's free so whatever. You need a keyboard and mouse to compete against pc players, but at least there's always thousands of people playing.

    The bad: It's made by a russian developer who despite claiming they have no bias in making russian tanks/planes better it's quite obvious. They won't match countries historically, because russia would stand zero chance in the air or on the ground. They'll use prototype russian aircraft with 4 cannons and match them with first gen german aircraft (developed years earlier) that have 1 cannon.

    It's also designed so you have a 50/50 win/loss rate despite how good you are. So the game will punish you for winning and match you with people who have higher ranked vehicles if you win too often.

If there was an easy way to set up voice comm in a battle, it would help. maps are nice and big and allow for flanking movement. Expand
