What I liked:
- The combat that’s present is what makes this game stand out quite a lot because it always feels satisfying and exciting especially when you win.
- There is a decent amount of tanks for you to get to grips with and they’ve done a good job of making each tank you can use feel considerably different.
- I really enjoyed the strategy elements that were present in the game because when in full flow they do give the game an addictive and immersive side to it.
- There is plenty of customisation for you to get to grips with and being able to unlock more tanks does give the game quite a bit of replayability.
What I didn’t like:
- The presentation side of the game is a little on the basic side and nothing much stands out in both the visuals and sound design.
- At first the game is quite difficult because there are many different things to grasp so expect to get frustrated every now and then at the start.
- Sometimes the online components of the game had a few issues and my main complaint is that it can take quite a while to find a game.
Does Armored Warfare do enough to get a recommendation from me?
All in all the free-to-play genre is hated by many and that’s because the people who purchase items are often way to difficult to compete against, but thankfully I’m pleased to say that Armored Warfare doesn’t do that. Armored Warfare instead matches you up fairly and when the different mechanics combine together they work really well and bring you quite a lot of fun and exciting tank action. It’s not perfect though and it does have a few shortcomings but on the whole if you like very good combat with huge tanks then this will do more than enough to satisfy your urge.
I rate Armored Warfare 7/10.
