    Ultimately, it's the combination of accessible gameplay with riveting depth that makes World of Tanks so engrossing.

    Wargaming took a chance with World of Tanks for Xbox 360 and at this point, they should consider the venture a success. The game is fun and fast-paced, perfect for when you only have a few free minutes for gaming. It's intuitive to learn, offers a wide range of good-looking tanks, multiple maps, and a free-to-play setup that skillfully levels the playing field whether players have more time or more money. Best of all, (and despite a few interface issues) with World of Tanks 360, Wargaming's created the kind of all-inclusive game that appeals to competitive gamers regardless of platform.

    The maps are bare and play is inherently repetitive... but this is gripping and impeccably crafted entertainment. If you’ve recently bought a new console, don’t let the basic visuals put you off. You’ll be generously rewarded if you stick with it.

    An excellent combination of detailed combat mechanics, gripping progression, and well thought out pay-to-play options. [May 2014, p.72]

    World of Tanks: 360 Edition is a good conversion from PC game, with an arcade and fun gameplay in addictive 15vs15 battles. Limited in options, but rich in potential.

    Console version of World of Tanks is a limited, less impressive but still very solid relative of the PC giant. [04/2014, p.66]

    A solid multiplayer free-to-play shooter that, despite suffering from a lack of variety, is distinct enough to warrant giving it a try. [Issue#109, p.70]

    I laughed when I read the review starting "Well I'm going to be completely honest" then a rating of 1 out of 10.
    One word. .PC fanboy, or a Sony fanboy pretending to be a PC fanboy in order to down-rate an Xboxe 360 game.
    Is this game the best looking game on the 360?. . .No!

    Does it look pretty good? for a large area battlefield. . yes it actually does look pretty good for a machine with 512megs of ram. Lets see what the PC snobs machine can do with 512 megs of ram.
    The game looks fine, and has a pretty impressive draw distance for a console game. The texture actually look ok, when all things are considered.
    The game handling can take a minute or two to get into but it is intuitive, and about as easy, as it could be to have tank steering, without using up all the triggers and shoulder buttons for something that can be accomplished on the left analogue. There is the oddl moment of frustration as you spin about helplessly while trying to beat a hasty retreat (i use the word "hasty" in context here, as it's more of a leisurely walking pace if your reversing, but these moments are rare, and don't ruin the game at all, even if someone else does occasionally get an easy kill, as you pirouette helplessly in front of them doing your best to try and get a luck shot off at them.
    I found the game to be addictive, and fun. Team-play was surprisingly good, and i only game across a couple of players who were not really playing as part of a team. though I did switch off my mic & headset a couple of times, so as not to have to listen to an overly vocal child or someones background music, but you get these "People" in any game.
    I'd highly recommend this to anyone, especially if you like shooters, but like me, are just to slow for COD and the other fast paced FPS games out there. If your playing with some buddies it's fantastic.
    This game also has the potential to be added to in a big way, new maps, new tanks, new weapons and perks. I see a rosie future for it improving all the time, in the same way mine-craft has been transformed.

    I'd give this an genuine 8 or 9 just because it is so much fun, up to 10 to counter the trolls who rated it 1.

    NOTHING ELSE LIKE IT ON CONSOLE. My LIVE friends and I have played nothing but this for weeks since it came out and we are having a blastNOTHING ELSE LIKE IT ON CONSOLE. My LIVE friends and I have played nothing but this for weeks since it came out and we are having a blast rolling out together in armored columns to take that next hill. It might not be quite as polished as many of the FPS competitive shooters, but it is at least a somewhat realistic tank simulator with a refreshingly slower pace. It is a thinking man's game as opposed to the rest of the run an gun shooters. Although other games may have fancy light shows and bells and whistles, I am scoring this based on how much fun and longevity it is giving me (without having spent a dime mind you). A solid 9 and one that I will be picking up with friends from time to time even after our initial frenzy. Expand

It's simple and entertaining which is exactly what these games should be. I don't feel pestered to spend real money or do I feel the nagging need too, it's simply an option that is there should I want to use it and that's the best part F2P should be an option and not rammed down your throat. Good old fashioned fun game that anyone can pick up and play. Expand

    World of Tanks. It conjures images of epic tank on tank warfare, driving a twenty ton death machine through buildings to blow your enemies toWorld of Tanks. It conjures images of epic tank on tank warfare, driving a twenty ton death machine through buildings to blow your enemies to kingdom-come, exulting in a well-placed shot that renders your opponents nothing more than smoldering wreckage. *sniff* It is enough to bring a tear to one's eye. Unfortunately, there are several things that keep this game from being as awesome as it could be.

    First and foremost, the training videos, while full of fun facts and "helpful" advice, don't actually prepare you for the game in any way, shape or form. While it is important to know that your medium tank is designed as a support unit used to flank the enemy, this has no actual bearing on the way the game plays out. What I've noticed is that medium and light tanks are the first ones to die. You'd think being a tracked steel titan would make you nearly invulnerable. But, as is often the case, if you are detected first, it's pretty much game over. Oddly enough, the few times you actually do make contact with the enemy and begin slugging it out, it's simply a matter of who reloads faster. And then, since you just got spotted, you can know, with no small amount of certainty, that you will soon be overwhelmed and destroyed by his allies. This, of course, is the exception. Much more often, you will be detected and killed in a matter of four or five shots from a tank that you never see.

    The game does a fantastic job of balancing out the different classes of tanks, but with the option to simply load up your account from your debit card, the "roles" these different tanks play gets lost in the wash of people "twinking". Honestly, playing for free is pretty cool, but the fact of the matter is that someone who has never played a video game in their life with a paltry $200 of disposable income can get leagues ahead of someone who has been slogging through MMOs since the days of Halo. In the end, skill, knowledge and experience are invalidated by someone with money to burn. I don't know if you can tell, but I'm just slightly bitter about all this.

    Now, that is not say that this game is without its merits. The controls are easy to learn and surprisingly intuitive. All the tanks handle like tanks. While clunky, it's a multi-ton tracked vehicle. How much responsiveness do you really expect? I love the realism of the sound effects. Very nice. I don't really have a problem with the way the game looks. Graphics don't make the game. The SNES proves that (Super Mario RPG anybody?). It never takes very long to get a game and though the individual games have a 15-minute timer, I've never seen it run lower than nine and a half minutes. The upgrade system, while somewhat intimidating in its scope and scale, is not that difficult to learn. Anybody familiar with tech trees of any kind can figure it out pretty easily.

    In conclusion, this game is more or less solid as far as games go: it's easy to learn, relatively fun to play and doesn't eat up a lot of my time. That said, the inability to make any headway without shelling out my life's blood for **** that doesn't really exist is the height, the very pinnacle, of the industry's disrespect for the people who provide them their bread and butter. World of Tanks is not art. World of Tanks is a pyramid scam dressed up like a video game. But don't take my word for it. Download it for free. See if you enjoy it enough to spend your rent money on it. I can't say I enjoy playing it enough to be homeless.

They try and destroy your wallet to make you pay for 'Gold'. I put a good 3 hours into this game, made no progress. I wondered why, then actually looked at the 'store'. "Must have gold" "Convert gold into research points". Well how do I get gold I wondered. Well you buy it using real world money... Wait.. What? Real world money? On a game? Ok I'd understand if they were booster packs. But no. The only freaking way to get 'gold' is to buy it.

    I read about people saying it looks pretty good, I read people saying that it's better than the PC version. How can a horrible game be better than itself? It's a wallet killing excuse that pushes this new "Pay to play" model thats ruining gaming. Games like World of Tanks are what make games these days unbearable, and anyone who supports it should be restricted to just this game for the rest of their lives. Then we will see how great of a game it really is.
