My pals invited me to World Of Warships, it’s free, and Skype for commo. Wow there are a lot of people playing this on-line game. The controls are simple WASD stuff and the graphics are nice – watching a battle with Volkswagon-sized shells arcing out 10+ miles is impressive. There are a lot of ships to choose from and it takes getting in there and fighting to get points to advance. You can spend $$$, too, which now that I think of it is prolly how some of the players got the bigger ships No submarines in the game, but you can fire torpedoes.
Players can form a team and join a battle, but the teams are limited to just three, I wish that was unlimited. The battles I’ve been in (since late last week) have max of ten players on each side. Maybe the battles get bigger as you gain ranking – I am in the Class I - III ships, so far. It’s cool, but the battles are pretty short-lived and if you get killed early your ship is locked to the battle until it completes. The user interface and the game engine are very good. I think an airplane game from the developer is coming.
Some of the in-game text chat is juvenile, but I did not see any bad language issues. Did I say it was free?
I’d like to see a larger squad do tactics. We tried to get two teams of three in the same player-v-player game but our two squads kept ending up opposite each other.
If you want to try something that is pretty simple and has nice ship and ocean graphics then give World Of Warships a go.
