World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition Review | GIZORAMA

GIZORAMA - If you’re anything like me, a tank-based shooter sounds dull and clunky. With a wealth of more sexy war machines (such as War Thunder’s combat plane shooter or Hawken’s manned battle-drone robots), tanks sound kind of…inhibitive. But—if you’re anything like me—you’d be in for a surprise.

Drawing on tanks from World Wars I and II, the combat vehicles in World of Tanks are historically accurate; that is to say, they are not needlessly beautified or enhanced. They choke and sputter, they have mobility limitations, and they come across exactly as the thick-shelled clunkers that they are. Game play was slow and tactical compared to some of the other popular shooters out there today, and in some tanks reloading took so long that I quickly learned that hiding or shooting and then retreating was the only way to win. And yet, I couldn’t put it down. (World of Tanks, Xbox 360) 4/5
