There are numerous free-to-play games on the Internet, so you can't say there is no way to pass the time. World of Tanks is one of the best examples, due to its compelling gameplay, highly detailed models and great sound effects. The game gives you command of your own tank and sends you off to battle against other players and their tanks. Battles usually last a few minutes, which is enough if you just want a good does of fun.

The setup file for World of Tanks is small, but it will take some time to download and install the game's components. Once the client is installed, you will need to create an online account or sign into an existing one and you will be able to jump into the game right away. The game works on any modern-day computer, but you may want something more if you wish to run it at higher graphical settings.

The game starts you off with a few basic tanks. As you play, you will receive virtual currency and experience, which you can use to research new guns, engines, thicker armor and other upgrades for your tanks. Furthermore, you can use the same rewards to research and purchase new and more powerful tanks. The best part is that the game has an excellent match-making system, so you won't find yourself fighting in a light tin can against a mighty Tiger tank.

You can choose from a vast selection of tank models, from various countries, including USA, Germany and the Soviet Union. There are 5 tank classes to choose from. You can play as a light, medium or heavy tank, as a tank destroyer or as artillery, which involves slightly different gameplay mechanics. In a random battle, which is the most common game mode, 15 players are pitted against another 15. Each player can have any tank they want, so the same team may consist of German, American, Soviet and any other kind of tank. To win, players must either destroy the enemy team or capture certain strategic points on the map.

It has to be mentioned that the tanks are modeled and textured beautifully and that they also behave realistically. When you stop the tank, you will see thick smoke coming from its exhaust pipes, you stop you will see your tank rock back and forth on its suspension. The damage system is also quite realistic. For example, you will deal more damage if you hit a tank from its side or rear and if you attack it frontally, your shell will most probably bounce of its armor, because it is the thickest in the front.

On a final note, the free-to-play model is very well implemented. There are lots of things on which you can spend real money, but most of the tanks can be unlocked by simply playing the game. You will never feel pressured to pay money in order to win.

If you like competing in online games and you are a tank enthusiast, there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't try World of Tanks.


The graphics and sound are absolutely beautiful and the tanks behave realistically. You can choose from a vast selection of tanks. Most of the tanks can be unlocked free of charge, just by playing the game.


Although you can unlock most of the tanks for free, you will have to play the game for quite a bit, until you end up just grinding the same battles.
