    Still free to play, World of Tanks brings explosive action and hours of fun with each sitting that will make it hard to put down. Veterans and new players alike can appreciate the upgrades that Wargaming.net has implemented, making for a solid title that's still one of the best free to play games on the market.

    There's not much change compared to the PC version, but it works just as well on Xbox One.

    As a free to play game, there’s no barrier of entry to speak of. If the game’s concept has ever intrigued you, give it a download — it’s excellent and something all shooter fans should try out.

    World of Tanks offers enough tense action and team-based strategy that can be enjoyable even for those who aren’t usually into war-themed games—all for the unbeatable price of free. Unfortunately, the experience is marred at times by a level of unfriendliness for new players, and a long grind at higher levels for those not willing to shell out major cash.

    World of Tanks is an unfriendly, greedy game that sometimes will offer you a good time. The surroundings look fine and it's fun to drive around in a tank. The gameplay is very self-interested, as you are constantly trying to get the best tank for yourself, which does not really fit with the multiplayer characteristics of the gameplay.

The match maker can feel a bit rigged sometimes and if you're just starting out guaranteed you'll be playing against ppl that under stand all the game concepts i.e. spotting range, signal range for radio, camo factor and your most important crew perks and equipment along with actual camo paint.

    Game looks and sounds and plays amazingly! Nothing like driving a long in your heavy and hearing a shell echo as it bounces off your hull.Game looks and sounds and plays amazingly! Nothing like driving a long in your heavy and hearing a shell echo as it bounces off your hull. Sounds just like the movie Fury. The the company really seems to support the game I have played Blitz and love it too! They are always updating and adding new tanks. Expand

    Wanted to defend the game a bit here from some of the negativity. Yes it's a free to play game so yes there are you're typical free to playWanted to defend the game a bit here from some of the negativity. Yes it's a free to play game so yes there are you're typical free to play aspects (multiple currencies, premium tanks, premium membership, etc.) BUT I personally feel Wargaming has done a great job with keep things reasonable.

    Let me start off by saying it's a fun, strategical, teamwork-based game. When you first start out you will probably be very bad, if not then you defy all logic. It takes some practice/learning of controls and mechanics for things to really start to click. Eventually though, it's a blast. If you play alot of FPS games you will find this new and different in a great way. It's a lot slower and more strategy based which is cool.

    Now for the free to play aspects. If you never spend a dime on the game you will find it difficult (but by no means impossible) to be successful. I recommend setting aside ~$30 and that's about it to hold you over for a long time. Look up guides on how to manage you silver/gold/xp and that will help a ton. The recommend purchase though is by far a premium tank. Premium tanks are tanks that are typically a little worse than the ones people train up by playing the game normally. What they are good at though is making lots of silver (thus decreasing the time to grind) and training your tank's crew. That one purchase of a premium tank goes a long way to helping you in most aspects of the game. There are other premium purchases, and some of them make a little sense, but many don't. Again, look up guides for what is best here.

    This is a game with a pre-existing very strong community for the PC version. I've had a great time with it and my main point from all of this is while there is certainly the potential for one to dump lots of $$$ on various aspects of the game, there is little reason to and people have been very successful without doing so.

    Played WoT now for maybe 6 months. Really enjoy the game, and am surpirsed to read so many other people complaining of fixed Matches. Some ofPlayed WoT now for maybe 6 months. Really enjoy the game, and am surpirsed to read so many other people complaining of fixed Matches. Some of the mechanics are complex to get your head around, but with a bit of youtubing and googling you can get the hang of it. I think people who moan about the game don't understand how it works.

    Game is naturally full of grind, and it's not the kind of game you can be good at overnight and takes a long time to get to the top tiers.

    On the downside, the game is very expensive if you want premium material. I tend to it the occasional premium tank if they're on offer. It's also not quite as fun if you're playing alone, compared with platooning with others

    Wargaming.net has nurfed the game with the latest update so bad that it is no longer enjoyable! I have the Deathstar TD which was once fearedWargaming.net has nurfed the game with the latest update so bad that it is no longer enjoyable! I have the Deathstar TD which was once feared by all tanks, now you can hit the broad side of a tier 9 batchhat and only track him or better yet hit the front of a IS-3 (tier 8) and only do 200 damage....pathetic! The arties have been nurfed bad also. I was using the T-92 american artillery and had one track damage shot out of 9 shots! Every circle was completely around the target and they were not moving, but every shot would either go over or fall short. I am ready to uninstall the game if things are not fixed! I don't expect to hit a tank every time, but the T-92 has the largest splash damage and if you miss a tank with the smallest aiming que, then why even have one! You have destroyed a once decent game!! Expand
