Om detta spel

War Thunder is a free-to-play, cross-platform MMO combat game for Windows, Linux, Mac and PlayStation®4 dedicated to military vehicles used in and around World War II and the Korean War. In War Thunder, you can take part in major battles on land, in the air, and at sea, fighting with real players from all over the world in a continuously developing environment.

War Thunder already offers a highly detailed experience in military aviation and ground forces combat, giving players access to a Guinness World Record breaking number of aircraft, as well as an abundance of tanks and other combat vehicles - and the number is constantly rising.

You can feel the unmatched intensity of aerial dogfights in a fighter, the decisive power of commanding a heavy strategic bomber or the heat of battle in a ground attacker, delivering precision strikes against your enemies. Alternatively, you can join the spearhead of armoured vehicles, fighting for dominance over the battlefield on the ground: Man a heavy tank with impressive armour and firepower, use the maneuverability of a medium or light tank to your advantage, or support your team by screening the skies with your anti aircraft vehicle - the choice is yours!

In the future, the game will also allow players to ‘set sail’ by commanding a variety of warships in the fight over the control of the world’s oceans, giving the game a truly epic scale.

Master your vehicles through both upgrades and personal experience in an environment that is constantly expanding and rewarding the personal skill of the player. Organise your efforts in one of the countless player squadrons and become an ace pilot or tanker - or both! Our thriving and welcoming community of millions of players is also actively participating in the game’s ongoing development, offering custom content through War Thunder Live, such as skins, missions and even vehicles.

War Thunder has something for everyone. Play cooperative games with your friends on Windows PC, Linux, Mac or PlayStation 4 against AI, or squad up for a PvP battle in a difficulty setting matching your play style, ranging from Arcade to Simulator using Mouse and Keyboard, Gamepad or Joystick.

Features include:

  • An entire arsenal at your command - Over 500 highly detailed aircraft, tanks, and other combat vehicles crafted carefully from historical documents and surviving sources.
  • Right into the heat of battle - Intense PvP experiences in full-scale combat missions on various difficulty settings for all play styles and degrees of experience.
  • A single bullet can make a difference - A realistic damage system for aircraft and ground vehicles involving individual component durability instead of an overall health bar.
  • The true free to play experience - Download and play the game for free as much and as long as you like it. Support the ongoing development entirely at your own leisure.
  • Crossing the platform border - Seamless cross-platform gameplay between Windows PC, Linux, Mac and PlayStation®4 (more to come) with tens of thousands of players from all over the globe online at the same time.

Doctor Who is both a television show and a global multimedia franchise created and controlled by the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation).

It centres on a time traveller called "the Doctor", who comes from a race of beings known as Time Lords. He travels through space and time in a time machine he calls the TARDIS. This ship — which looks like a small, London police box on the outside — has nearly infinite dimensions on the inside. It has become such an iconic shape in British culture that it is currently the intellectual property of the BBC rather than its actual makers, the Metropolitan Police Service.

IMPOSSIBLE TO CONTACT GAijin SUPPORT !!!!

Yesterday i had about 9500 Golden Eagles.
Today when i logged on i suddenly had minus 652 Golden Eagles (-652)
Since i have spent REAL MONEY on these GE i would very much like to have them back.
Has someon hacked the game ? how is it possible to have a negative amount og GEs ?

No tickets refer to this problem.. so it is impossible for me to send at ticket.. And they have no mail adress to send support related stuff.
So thank you very much Gaijin for stealing around 500 NOK (50 Euro) from me...

Incredible poor customer service !

Great game, we dont need money to play this, all we need is skill and you're good to go. It's fun and addicting. This is an online game that supports for low spec pc like me, although the quality is bad bcs im using ultra low quality, but it's not a problem at least i've gathered FPS for this. If you want an online game that supports low spec pc, this is good to go. I recommend to use and tick the box for "old video card support" in settings which is an ultra low quality for those who have a low spec pc. The "old video card support" is really helpful, although the quality is really bad but not that much, it helps you to get more FPS. Setting the resolution also does help you to get fps. I play this game with 1024 x 768 resolution with "old video card support" setting and it runs well for 30-40 FPS

BTW this is my pc spec

Processor : Intel Celeron N2920
Ram : 2gb
Graphics card : Intel HD Graphics 1000
DX 11
WIN 8.1

It sucks isn't it?

But no problem bcs this is my only online game which a lot of people and my friends play this

STILL THERE IS ONE PROBLEM, A SINGLE PROBLEM THAT IS REALLY ANNOYING.
This game has too much updates, it updates at least once to twice a week or 2 weeks. Sometimes the updates require download for 1-2 GB, but sometimes it's only a few MB. It just takes your time when you're going to play but there's an update and requires you to download it to play the game, lucky if it's only few MB.

IF YOU HAVE A LOW SPEC PC LIKE ME, THIS IS THE BEST ONLINE GAME TO PLAY.

OVERALL 8/10

Hmm lets see were to start Gajin is telling me that german tanks are good thats why they have such a high br but it really isnt true because german tanks and planes suck unless you are a skilled players second thing is RUSSIAN BIAS russians are op and you can even pay2win as russia because there premium tanks are even more OP.
As you will see when you play americans russian hate them thats why every tank and planes is worse than the russian british and germans they are only good in both on tier 5 and there premium tanks and planes suck so much taht i get cancer they even got a good premium sherman but america has a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ sherman as a premium ! dont install unless you want to play russia ♥♥♥♥ing commmunists ♥♥♥♥ Putin.

Please read before making consideration:

I am friends with a former Senior Mod from the War Thunder forums. According to (that person), the mods actively check these reviews and downvote any of them that have any kind of criticism. Luckily for us, Steam prevents them from just deleting it like they do on their forums. I believe the top review here is negative, which is good despite my review being positive overall. People need to be aware of all the faults in this game, which are as numerous as all the things this game does right.

If you decide to download this game just be aware of the unilateral censorship and active deletion and muting of anyone who offers up criticism (constructive or otherwise) on the forum. They do not tolerate it at all and you will have your post removed and will be given a warning point. The forums are helpful, but can be avoided entirely - which is what I recommend. It's not worth the trouble to deal with the mods if you do or say something they deem critical in any way.

All that said - the game itself is very fun. It's the best plane game on the market right now. Not that that says much, but it's something. The tank mechanics are very poor though, but if you don't mind some occasional RNG wackiness, they are a fun time-killer.

I figure this review will get two or three downvotes from the mods, but I'm going to be checking often and will try to contact Steam as soon as it happens and hopefully be able to catch them in the act.

Thanks for reading, happy tanking (and piloting).

Update: As predicted, yep.

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through War Thunder
The players were upset, at Gaijin's latest blunder
The tankers were all camped, behind the enemy spawn
While pilots flew low, mowing the lawn
The enemy planes, they circled our field
While we all climbed up, refusing to yield
And I in my Corsair, and my friend in his Yak
Getting swarmed left and right, constantly under attack
When suddenly from behind, guns making a clatter,
I quickly checked six, to see what was the matter
Down to the ground, I dove like a Stuka
The player who missed me chatted out "♥♥♥♥!"

At the time i'm writing this review, I have about 302 hours into the game.
I mained the German nation (Going on Tier 5 Planes, Going on Tier 3-4 Ground).

As everyone has mentioned a russian bias in one form or another, it is real.
I know 302 hours isn't much compared to other plays, but I think its a valid amount to make a comment with.

Russian Bias in Application (AIR):
- ALL Russian aircraft are almost impossible to shoot down even with direct hits from cannons
(E.x. I was once flying my Tier 4 Me410 U1/A4 and I hit a Tier 2 Yak with a 50mm Air Target round... The Yak survived... This has happened more than once. And for scale, a 50mm Air Target round can one shot a heavy american bomber...)
- Russian aircraft, notably the Yak line, have exaggerated climb rates that arent shown on stat profiles, but are very clear in game
- Russian aircraft maintain speed a lot better than others
- Russian BOMBERS have incredible AI Gunner Accuracy compared to other nations
- The US has a P-51 Mustang, which was also given to Russia as a premium, the exact same plane... but with a lower BR
- Russian machine guns are OP as ****

Russian Bias in Application (GROUND):
- If you fight a russian tank in the same Tier as you, you might as well ditch your tank, theres no point in fighting, as you need at least a tier higher tank to destroy a lower tier russian tank, unless you get a good shot.
- Russians will always pen your armor
- Russians are more likely to set your tank on fire
- Russians deflect shots that shouldn't be possible (If you can pen 200+mm of armor, why can't you pen russian 80mm effective thickness at 90 degress WITH A TIGER!

Honestly and factually speaking, each nation has their own benefits and drawbacks:
- USA: Very balanced play style | Just as weak as they are strong
- Germany: High speed, High Climb, strong ammo, metal armored planes | Crappy turning
- Brits: Good turn fighting, Climbing, Accurate guns | Crappy armor
- Japanese: AMAZING turn fighting | Crappy armor ("paper armor")
- Russia.... Amazing turn fighting, Amazing Climb Rate, Amazing Armor, Accurate Guns, Amazing Ammo... everything of which is boosted and not historically accurate, as oppose to other nations which more or less are.

Every patch in a NutShell:
- If Germany gets new plane -> Nerf German Air
- If Russa gets new plane -> Nerf German Air
- If Any Nation gets buffed -> Buff Russia

I know this review seems very bias against Russia, but honestly, you WILL notice a bias towards the Russian nation if you play this game.


Overall the game is very fun and interesting, but its a BIG BIG turn off when you get killed by a Russian vehicle that was shotting in the opposite direction with a gun that can't pen your armor from any angle or spot.

Ground Forces Reveiw

First of all I want to get this out of the way before I go onto my reveiw...
Ground Forces is messed up big time.
An example showing how Unbalanced this game is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdq6O6OJF5Q&nohtml5=False
Poor Design and dumb developers and an uneducated playerbase who don't know a thing about history. Says this youtuber. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLNV_VNQqyc&nohtml5=False
If any of the current players are reading this please, please, please! let Gaijin know like I have just how upset you are about how broken Ground Forces is. Go to their forums and let them know. Going to steam forums and complaining about it does absolutely nothing. You have to let them know directly on their website. Speak up. Get a petition made up, because this is the worst thing that has ever happened to this game.. it's god awful and only going to get worse and going to make people leave the game like i have for good after playing this game for 4 years. Even World of Tanks is nothing close to how broken this game is.


The Good.
[1.]War Thunder: Air Forces / Thumbs up, Postive 9/10
Somewhat better balanced and fun to play. Simulator and realistic are great but are not really realistic. Game looks great, Gameplay is smooth and solid. No problems here other then the entire game isn't really realistic at all. Eventhough players assume it is.The BR rating system is a bit messed up. Sometimes you have BF 109's and Spitefires going against Bi Planes from WW1. To fix this issue would be easy. Simply just design it so BR 1.0's - 1.3's match up with BR 1.0's - 1.3's very simple fix.


The Bad.
[1.]The Community / Thumbs Down, Negative 1/10
While I've met a few really nice, friendly guys in this game who know a lot about the mechanics of the game and history who were awesome players who had a lot of skill. The community in War Thunder as a whole are generally obnoxious, elitist, imbred idiots who know about as much about World War II history as a third grader knows about P*ssy. This goes for the players in the steam forums and the players in-game as well. It's like none of them have ever read a book or did some research for their own complaints why this game isn't realistic and why the hitboxes are the way that they are. Or even why they are so many problems and unbalanced game mechanics.

Now normally I never could careless what players knew about history or how a game worked but in a game like this that prides itself on strategy, players telling other players it's "Realistic and Historically accurate." When it isn't. I think it is important to at least understand the basics of how the mechanics work and the basics of what any human being should know about history.

One example of this is there are some players who actually believe there were actual real tanks battles in WW2 were American Sherman tanks using machine guns that actually took out German Panzer Tiger II's and Russian AAA guns taking out German Stugg's. Thats how utterly stupid some of these people are. I don't think I've ever encountered such an un-educated and illiterate playerbase in my 25+ years of gaming. The War Thunder community deserves the label it has been given by other gamers across the internet. Because it's well deserved. They are a Grade A pack of strait up boneheads. You won't find a group of gamers who are as dumb as some of these people.

[2.]War Thunder: Ground Forces / Thumbs down, Negative 2/10
I have a feeling the developers are using Ground Forces as an anger managment experiment, and here are my reasons.

Machine guns taking out medium and heavy tanks. AAA's one shotting tanks. TREES TREES TREES TREES TREES TREES! How many bloody tree's do you need to put on one map. I know these developers arn't stupid. They did a great job on the Air Forces part of War Thunder. So they must know how completely messed up Ground Forces is. How badly designed the maps are. So why hasn't anything been fixed yet? It's almost been 2 years? Because the players don't take the time to speak up and tell the developers about it. They would rather complain and whine about it on steam forums then actually be productive, go to their main forums, sign in and make an account like other fans and make a point of getting a petition made up or make a thread post thats actually being constructive to get something done about it.

So what we have here is that the match making is still messed up, the BR ratings for some tanks are messed up, the tiers need to be removed, the hit boxes are still messed up, the years and tanks arn't properly organized in each of the lineups through the tiers and br ratings. Sometimes you're going against tanks that are 3 - 4 years older. The damage rating mechanics are messed up because sometimes it takes like 11 - 16 hits to take one guy down eventhough you have targeted the weak points on the tank, taken out his ammo racks, fuel tanks, tracks, engine, and turret. Other times I've had 3 enemy German Panzer tanks firing on me and I'm just using a crappy American Starter tank but yet my tank is still standing there after mowing them down. While it was pretty fun, I do feel thats really not balanced at all because the German Panzers were some of the best and most powerful tanks ever designed in WW2. So this game obviously was never intended to be realistic at all, eventhough players think it is.

The kill counters are messed up and not tallied properly. There is still team damage allowing people to strickly use it too grief players because not enough players have made a point of letting the developers know to get this changed. They would rather complain about it.


[3.]Terrible and lazy Designed maps. Glitchs and Exploits
Now this part is 100% the fault of the developers, not the players. This is were I feel the developers have been extreamly lazy and there is no excuse for this at all. There are a few maps I've found serious game breaking glitchs that can be exploited. I used to make levels for Half Life, Quake 3 Arena, Operation Flashpoint, Call of Duty 1, Delta Force 1,2 and 3 back in my early 20's and this kind of thing is the result of in-experianced level designers who didn't take their time to test out their levels/map properly. Were I found these glitchs, I won't mention them because I don't want players using them to cheat. When I experimented I found many many glitchs on some of the bigger/open maps. This is unacceptable for a multiplayer PVP focused game and needs to be fixed ASAP. It could be easly fixed in about 20 mins. I usually don't get mad over things like this. Bugs, glitchs and problems are always in pc games. They will always be around. But this kind of half ♥♥♥♥♥ work is disgusting to me and it kinda pisses me off these developers have been so lazy in this area with Ground Forces.

There is one map were you can hide under the terrain. You can shoot the enemys but they can't hit you because you can see right through the terrain. Another map there is a rock were you can move into and only your tanks cannon is pointing out. They can only hit your turret nozel and never destroy you. While you can just keep firing on the enemy. There is many overly done and Improperly placed tree's rocks and shrubs. Sometimes there is just wayy to many tree's. It's like trying to do a Tank Battle right in the middle of Fangorn forest out of Lord of The Rings.

Thank you for taking the time to read all this. If you read this far. Thank you very much. It means a lot.

You're Truely,
-A long time War Thunder fan.

Around the time of initial, this game was great. As of this date, it's a broken mess of severely broken battle ratings. Unless you enjoy simulator game modes, I recommend staying away from this game if you consider any game mode but simulator mode.

Do not get this game.
I´ve played this game for more than 600 hours in ground forces now and I really can´t recommend it at it´s current state.
The game itself would be good if there would be more players and a better matchmaking system, the graphics and models are good, also there are no flamers in the community, but letting Tiger 2´s fight against T 54´s and IS3´s + IS4´s when you can´t even TOUCH them in the Tiger frontally is just a joke. Also there is no "Russian bias" itself, its just the thing that the Russian tanks are way to undertiered to fight the Germans Brits or Americans. You have to spend alot of time and money into this game to get some tanks which are actually fun to drive like Tiger I´s or T34´s. To be honest i hate World of Tanks but since Warthunder doesn´t give a single crap about its community and players you should rather play that instead of Wartunder.

I have almost 300 hrs into this game. It's not something you want to take seriously. If you do then you will become very frustrated and spend multiple hundreds of dollars on. I know because I've spent over $500 on upgrades across multiple countries. With Russia not being our closest allie. I stayed away from them. I was born and raised in the USA. So I went for my country and their allies. I didn't realize or know that this game is for the Russians. If you choose a faction make it the Russian's. They are by far and wide more powerful than anything. The kill the most powerful tanks of any other country with one shot, even if it's multiple levels lower. Don't waste your money or time. I'm finding all the free to play games are jacked up. I will stay away from them. There will be a shift away from them and they will learn and go bankrupt. hahahaha

The average thought processes behind someone who actually loves tanks and did their homework:

War Thunder 'Realistic Mode'. Where we took out the Russian ammo's inaccuracy, nerfed American mobility and gun depression, didn't bother fixing their ammo to behave like it's real world counterpart, still haven't nerfed Russian HE ammo hitting up to 2 tiers higher than it's supposed to. Still haven't modeled German armor correctly to represent how weird the Tiger's front armor was, cool. Still haven't fixed American APHE actually not having HE filler, awesome. Oh and the German round velocity still blows, check check. Oh they hit the American mobility yet again, still haven't fixed their armor. And now their biggest strength, air power has to deal with Assault Fuses. On a plane you wouldn't bother dive bombing in. Secret documents showing this is how the real war went? Huh, that's interesting. Why doesn't the T34's engine explode as often and why does it take multiple HE direct hits to track tanks? Well.. alright we'll roll with that. Huh, that crew hatch deflected an AP shell at 70 meters, that's new...

tl;dr - World of Tanks more accurately modeled the guns in their arcade game than Gaijin did in Realistic. Go play Aces High II if you want a realistic game and go play World of Tanks if you want a better tank arcade game.

While I will put the disclaimer that this game is still in beta at the time of writing this review, it will likely still be in beta 2 years later. I have put so much time into liking this game, but the redeeming qualities don't outweight the cons of this game.

So, let's begin.

My first major pain point with this game is the dev team. They've pulled some pretty great things out, don't get me wrong. The game looks great and /sometimes/ runs well. Then you get times like when Ground Forces was first released. Back then you can turn almost all the foliage off. This took them over a year to fix, and that's after they stopped waiving it as "Normal competetive play". The second thing is balancing. Holy crap is balancing bad. For instance, the Valentine MK 1, in the British armored tech tree. You're only driving it to serve as points for the enemy team. Your armor means nothing, you have no mobility, and your gun is awful. That's just one example of tanks that are not worth driving because they're overtiered.

Second point, the community. While the community has good points as well, there is a lot of bad to sift through to find the good. If you make any complaint at all, you will be bombarded with insults. If you ask for help, you will be bombarded with insults. Don't like a certain tank? Guess what? More insults. You'll be lucky to find meaningful conversation or anyone who's willing to say anything other than something concerning your mother.

The final nail in the coffin is when I opened up Warthunder at the time this review was written to find that the update released today severely broke resourrce management in the game. My computer has 16GB of RAM. Warthunder was using 12. I'd never seen my RAM maxed out before.

Conclusion: It has ups and downs, mostly downs. If you're willing to ignore the community, you might find something of value in it.

NOTE: I mostly played ground forces, I didn't like air and was kinda trash at it, so your milage may vary if you play it for air.

I originally intended to write a long, honest review, but it honestly isn't worth it for this game.

TL;DR version: Grindy game featuring hundreds of pre-war to Cold War-era planes and tanks, unique gameplay, stunning visuals, great variety of controls and three modes of varying difficulty, maybe you'll like it. It's the best F2P plane/tank game you can currently get, though be warned that there is A LOT wrong with the game at the moment, the developers also generally ignore feedback regarding their game. Don't expect historically accurate plane combat, get a real game if you want that.

Contrary to what many people say, the Nation balance is generally fine, each nation has a few, let's say "strong contenders" and hilariously overtiered vehicles.

Back in the days this game had a lot of potential with the mechanics that they had in-play but with every 1 step forward that they made they just fell 4 steps backwards, the state that this game is at right now is unplayable.

If you would like to spend 2 years of playing this game just to get the first jet and then realise that you need a full month of gameplay just to unlock a single part.. all of that would be fine if the progress was fun but it's not. You'll face jets that are either fully upgraded(probably by premium acceleration) or just a superior jet in every prespective.

The fact that it's free doesnt mean that the devs should block the end content even to players who play their game for years only because they want to make the grind last longer. Yes the russian bias is real and they will block you in the global chat/forums if you say so, thankfuly Gaijin doesnt have that kind of power on the Steam reviews.
