World of Tanks Blitz icon Use tanks to defeat enemies in this quick multiplayer shooter that allows you to choose from a variety of tanks and upgrade them

Tanks are iconic machines, even today, in spite of the fact that we have nuclear bombs, drones, and all sorts of other inventions that are technically more advanced. However, when it comes to actually conquering objectives on ground and dealing with infantry, tanks are still at the heart of the battle. Hence, tank simulators are very popular in the video games industry.

Defeat your enemies as quickly as possible using tanks

World of Tanks Blitz is a multiplayer arena shooter that’s a more arcade and quick version of the incredibly popular World of Tanks simulator, which has been around for quite a few years. In short, this is a 7-vs-7 co-op battle in which two teams go head-to-head in order to conquer objectives or simply destroy each other until one of the teams is the last one standing.

You get to choose from a variety of tanks from all the great powers of the world, including Russia, Germany and China. On top of that, all of them can be upgraded with new components and improved, although that requires currency, which is earned by winning battles. Thankfully, the matchmaking engine can find you a match in a matter of seconds, even if the game is still in beta at this point.

Decent graphics and simple controls

Although this is not a pure arcade game, the simulation is not on the level of the original game, since it would be a tad tedious, given the nature of the battles. As such, while the projectiles still follow a pretty realistic trajectory, everything else is much easier to manage and control. Besides your tank, it’s also important to keep an eye on your crew as well, although most of this part revolves around using medkits whenever they get injured.

The controls are fairly simple as well, since all you need to do is use WASD to move around, the mouse to aim and shoot, as well as a few other keys if you want to use items or perform other actions. In addition, the graphics are nice as well, although not as detailed as you might expect. This allows more people to enjoy the game, on the other hand, because the system requirements are lower as well.

An addictive action game for semi-casual players

Even if World of Tanks Blitz is not entirely newbie-friendly, it can certainly be approached by almost everyone, provided you go through the tutorial. Hence, it’s a great stepping stone toward more serious simulators, or maybe just a guilty pleasure you can enjoy whenever you have a bit of spare time.
