World Of Tanks, FIRE ZE CANNONS.

WRAWR!

Recommended Videos

Sorry about that, I feel obliged to roar at the start of something awesome.

So, I’m going to briefly summarize a game I’ve been playing for some time now, Likely with more future articles on the subject of WORLD OF TANKS.

Now then…

Shall we begin?

A single raven caws out amidst a field of barley in the soft breeze, fluttering up to a tree to peer at its nest and feed its young. Butterflies pan across the winds in a decadence of color and tranquility as all manner of small birds chirp in song. A low hum builds in the distance.

“Oi Kashkov! Getcher rump inta’ gear and load that shell!” The clang of steel affirms the commander’s order as the grubby hands of the man in question slam the first heavyweight shell into the loading chamber, allowing an auto loader to do the rest as he clears the breach and moves aside the mammoth weapon. The groan of the turret sounds out on the used tank, still part-worn as it peers through the scenery panning across the terrain as it seeks threats, the commander partially hanging out with his binoculars in an attempt to spot any targets.

He frowns with disdain. Nothing. The lowering of binoculars to his belt and tucking them in accompanies a sigh from his weary lips. Taking the moment to stop scouting and enjoy the scenery around him. Quiet. Tranquil. Beautiful.

EEEEEE! BANG!

The sound of an artillery shell flies through the air at hundreds of miles an hour from a Howitzer mounted at a thirty degree angle twelve kilometers away. The blast renders the tank nothing but a smoking wreck, the steaming KV-1 heavy tank left as carnage incarnate–scorched black metal twisted in a catastrophic parody of its manufacture in a minute crater of its own demise. Even the birds have silenced now, the sound of the high explosive shell leaving a ringing in the ears of anything nearby, as meanwhile…

The crew of a M7 Priest, an artillery piece tried and tested in countless battle cheer, as a single voice bellows in maniacal laughter, that of INS4NITY W00F, Screeching as if Omnipresent in the chat-box:

“LOL NOOB. SHOULDN’T AFK IN THE BATTLE!”

I hope I have elaborated things for you. But now, back to the review.

World of Tanks is a massive game, and it would take way too long for me to even fathom telling it to you in such a short space of time. So I’ll simply conclude it’s not very user friendly interface wise. However, once you explore a little, it all becomes second nature. I score the initial menu system a 3 out of 5. This is because it is complex, but with time you get used to the different functions everything neatly falls into place and becomes simple.

Game Play

The game play is action packed and heavily dependent on cooperation. This is because many tanks have support roles, SPG (Self propelled gun / Artillery / Arty), or Tank destroyers (Snipers, TD’s), Light Tanks (Scouts), Medium Tanks (Scout/Firing Hybrids), and Heavy Tanks (Shell-sponges).

Namely, the game play interface is extremely easy once you’re in the battlefield–very easy to grasp in fact.

The game would be exceptional–it’s not too fast paced–but it can be enough to get you going at moments. But the big letdown? Some of the players. Not that they are not friendly, just some are downright dumb. Thus, I’ll rate it a 4 out of 5.

Would you like an example?  Of course you would. Who wouldn’t relish in laughter at the idea of stupidity? Well…

I was attacked when in my artillery, and to deny the guy’s kills, I decided to drive over a cliff, and into a lake and drown myself. Why? It’s fun.  

Guess what happens? Two light tanks follow me in. Landing inside this lake, with no escape, drowning. I inadvertently killed two players who charged in hastily and paid for it with their lives. Muahaha! Martyrdom was successful. Two for one!

Best of all? World of Tanks is free to play.

You heard me, this isn’t some convenient typo.

FREE TO PLAY.

I’ll make a more in depth article soon about the game mechanics. Trust me, you’ll be impressed. Woof woof, bark bark.

FEAR MY ALMIGHTY STEEL BEAST!

Well, what is there to type, Currently I'm a makeshift editor. sometimes I have problems CONTROLLING THE VOLUME OF MY VOICE. other times I simply do stuff, LIKE RANT ABOUT DISFUNCTIONALITY IN GAMING AND THREATEN TO BITE PEOPLE. But majorly I like classical music, Social interaction IF IT INVOLVES BITING PEOPLE, and writing articles on the occassion about BITING PEOPLE AND RIPPING OFF VARIOUS PARTS OF THEIR ANATOMY. Insanity wolf is a meme designed to be outlandish and offensive. With that in mind, the role partook in any of my comments are done entirely from this -Fictional- Characters perspective and does not coincide with any of my own views.
