Free-to-play games are always a bit of a challenge to formally review, but luckily I’m not in the formal biz so I can just get on to breaking down the situation and leaving it at that. I get the appeal of a highly-accessible title like this, and I’ve played games like it before for a while. If you’re into the ground battle action, trying to blow some people up, and the prospect of waging ground battles while incrementally upgrading or personalizing your rig in some way sounds good, knock yourself out. Just be assured that a price for it being free is dealing with a regular stream of inundation encouraging you to spend some real money to advance a little quicker, or get some cool upgrades. You can still have fun not spending a penny, and in general it takes little time to get connected to a match, but what makes the game so easy to get into initially is also an element of what can work against it in the long term. No matter what tank or gear you get the experience will, at its essence, always be roughly the same and while some skill and tactical understanding can help you do better there’ll still be a point where it’s nature is to be more of the same, no matter what special events or alternative modes you may throw at it. If that’s your thing, it’ll be a lot of fun most likely. If you’re looking for something a bit more involved it’s still worth checking out for free, it just may not sustain your interest for long.
