Game: World of Warships Blitz by Wargaming

Genre: Action War Game


Platforms: Android, iOS

The World of Warships Blitz is a beautiful attempt at capturing the feel of naval warfare on our mobile devices. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the graphics and especially the sound and music. The game, on Android and iOS, immerses you in its world almost instantly. The joy of controlling a warship is immense and it feels quite real. Remember, warships take time to move so don’t expect fast-paced action. However, once you are at shooting distance from the enemy, the game becomes extremely exciting.

While playing, there are multiple modes and objectives. You can play random matches against real world opponents or even team up with your friends. The battles are 7v7 real time PVP matches. There is also a ranked battle mode where you climb leagues and try to be the best. An interesting mode is the campaign one where historically important naval battles are recreated and players get an opportunity to live this history.

The game doesn’t pull any punches as far as authenticity is concerned — especially in the ships it offers. You can choose from a plethora of battleships of Japanese, German, American or British make. Each of these ships have their own strengths and weaknesses. However, players have multiple tools in their arsenal to overcome these weaknesses. They can use boosters, repairs, consumables and even commanders that balance out weaknesses and improve strengths.

One great thing about this game is that, unlike most of its counterparts, you cannot win by paying money. Since you will always be matched against someone having a similar ship, only your skills matter. One can pay to speed up progress in the game but if your skills are not good enough, the fast progress might even hurt you.

VERDICT: World of Warships has a lot going on for it. It is easy to pick up and play but at the same time there are loads of tools for the experts to tinker with. The only problem is the constant disconnections, which can be a source of irritation. But if you can look past that, World of Warships Blitz is a wonderful game to satisfy all your naval battle needs. I’d go so far as to rate it nine out of 10.
