Armored Warfare

Armored Warfare

Armored Warfare is Obsidian Entertainment (developers of Fallout: New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity and Skyforge) and My.com's answer to Wargaming's World of Tanks, albeit with a more modern twist to it. Instead of playing around with World War II tanks, Armored Warfare lets you command post-1950s tanks, ranging from the lowly M41 to the fearsome M1 Abrams.

Armored Warfare's core mechanics are what you would expect of a polished tank combat MMO. You start off with a low tier tank and work your way up the vehicle tech tree through the game's PvP and co-op modes. Each tank type has its own unique characteristics, and can be further customized to fit the needs of the player. As in World of Tanks, your vehicles also have trainable crew members with their own unique talents.

Gameplay in Armored Warfare is more frenetic than in World of Tanks, given the technology level of the setting. The sortie maps are also smaller, which greatly speeds up the time for contact between two opposing forces.

Armored Warfare's graphics are great, though poorly optimized at times. If you have a computer that can run it smoothly at ultra settings, then you're in for a treat. The tank models, though visually pleasing, could use a bit more accurate detailing in terms of gun ports and viewports. The sound department is quite lacking in this game and needs to be beefed up for more realism and impact.

Overall, Armored Warfare is a pleasant experience if you're looking for a fast-paced tank battle MMO with a good deal of depth and polish. If you favor slower, more tactical tank gameplay, then it's off to the *other* tank game for you.

Free, with option to pay for additional features.
