Some free-to-play games are more polarizing than others, with some sides taking the stance of “great, totally non-exploitative implementation” and others thinking “total pay-to-win trash.” We’d like to see on what side of the spectrum the gaming public — and by that, we mean you guys — think of certain F2P games, and so we’ve invented something new called Love It Or Hate It?
Every week, we’ll present a new F2P game and give you the option of passing judgment on it. Then we’ll look back at it the next week and see what people thought. There are no prizes, except for the satisfaction of knowing you clicked on a button and made something happen. Really, what else do you need?
Last week, we asked if you gave thanks for World of Tanks, and the result was fairly positive. 33% of you said yes, 22% said no, and 45% had no strong feelings one way or the other. Personally, I’ve gone through love/hate relationships with WoT through the years, so maybe it shouldn’t have come as a great surprise.
This week, we’re shifting gears, but only slightly, to see what you think of one of World of Tanks’ major competitors: Gaijin Entertainment’s War Thunder.
Pros: Smooth controls, great arcade-y feel, multiple vehicles per battle means you’ll be engaged longer.
Cons: Lacks realism, localization is iffy.
So what do you think? Yea or nay for War Thunder? As always, feel free to leave a comment to let us know why you voted the way you did!
