    One of a kind! But is it really truly free to play?

    War Thunder is in a genre that is completely new and few and far in between. It is definitely the most fun one in the genre although hit really only provides multiplayer and not much single player content. You get to j... Read Full Review

    At first look it's a nice game. It has better graphics than World of Warplanes and World of Tanks for the ground part.After you play for a bit you'll realize the game has big problems with the basic mechanics of the game... Read Full Review

    The sooner developers like these go under the better. This game isn't "free to play" it is repetitive game with an incredibly high pay wall on a game that should at most be a $20 game... Personally I would have payed $6... Read Full Review

    Awesome game with some awesome details!

    I, for one, was certainly not predicting such details into this game. Gives us lots of reasons to get behind the stick, or wheel, of a ton of great World War II-era vehicles. With strong visuals and convincing audio back... Read Full Review

    One of the best free to play games today

    The game is quick to learn, hard to master, never super-easy, as the matchmaking always puts you against at least a few of higher-rank adversaries who if you kill off grant you more research points. Basically, you resea... Read Full Review

    It doesn't live up to the hype.

    The game offers a couple of planes at most when starting. When attempting to customize, you can't select anything as none of the options do anything. You can't select a new plane because of the reasons described in the p... Read Full Review
