World of Warplanes First Look Gameplay Video

Watcha Playin'? is a FreeMMOStation show where we give you a sneak peek with commentary on the most popular free-to-play MMO games available. This time we take a look atย World of Warplanes, an exciting F2P shooter with dogfights so intense you'll wish you had never left the ground.

    It is painfully obvious that this reviewer didn’t bother to take the time to read ANY of the information on the official webpage (, the official forum (, or do any research before blindly diving into the game.

    The game starts with a tutorial…which you failed to read or comply with. Next, instead of starting with a relatively low-tier aircraft, you go straight for a large, fast, heavy jet (information edited for NDA content), which you attempted to dogfight with. UBER fail.

    What I saw after this was essentially a player with no knowledge of aerial combat screwing around for 15 minutes, NOT paying attention to the cues on-screen, screaming about “lock on” (dude, they’re WW2 aircraft – no missiles, no guided munitions, no “lock on”), and calling it a review. (Reference the 10-second “DIIIIIIIEEEE” at about 4:50)

    Also, your classes of aircraft need some SERIOUS help. The timeline for aircraft in World of Warplanes (from the main World of Warplanes website, which you obviously didn’t read) are these: Light, single-engine fighters; Heavy, multi-engine fighters, and Attack aircraft. There are no “bombers”, even though some aircraft have the ability to carry bombs.

    (BTW, the IL-10 is NOT, nor ever WAS, a “traditional fighter”). The only reason you actually scored a kill was because that player disconnected. You killed essentially a stationary target. *pats you on the back*

    You wanna do a REAL review?

    Do this – EDUCATE yourself about the game BEFORE actually playing it. Tell us what you LIKE about the game. Tell us about the INTERFACE. Give us CORRECT information. Take AIRCRAFT people are likely to play.

    Do NOT do this – brush off the tutorial. Go straight to a Tier 10 aircraft. Have no knowledge about the game. Run self-commentary on piss-poor flying.

    I sure hope you’re an intern, ’cause if someone expected ANY credibility from this review, they’re not getting it.

    I’m also a Senior Alpha Tester of the game, to give a frame of reference.

      Although we’re sure you have all credibility in your statement, you missed the point of the video. As it says in the text, it’s a sneak peek with some fun commentary. Not a review, very, very far from it. We never stated we we’re reviewing the game (it’s still in closed beta, why would we review it?).

      It’s a first look, intented to show the game to interested players with some humour on top. That is all.

      You’re just missing the point of the video entirely, but I guess you already know the game so you didn’t need to watch it anyway. Also, if you’re just trying to defend World of Warplanes you don’t have too, because it’s pretty clear that he loved the game (and World of Tanks also).

    We understand the point of the video. It’s clearly a bad choice from your end. With so many game reviewers on the internet, you waste time of whoever is stopping by.
    The guy from the video seems to be making fun of many aspects of the game.
    Not good, not enjoyable, not coming back.

      You say you understand the point of the video and yet you mention “game reviewers”. The idea of having first look videos isn’t to review the game or to show his skills, just to give a sneak peak of the game with some humour thrown in for good measure (check our other Watcha Playin’ videos to be sure this isn’t a coincidence).

      We appreciate your opinion though and I guarantee you that when we make video reviews it will be completely different from our first look videos. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I laughed at the guy’s wacky antics and bizarre comments, and I don’t think this sneak peek makes the game look bad at all. For what it is worth, I have played quite a bit of World of Tanks, and like it, and will certainly give World of Warplanes a try..

      “I laughed at the guyโ€™s wacky antics and bizarre comments”

      That is exactly what we were going for, to try and get to people’s humor like we did with you ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, the game is good nonetheless, so congratulations for getting the point of the show – being funny and showing a few good minutes of gameplay at the same time ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a waste of a press pass, given to a bunch of fools. I want to see some features of the game(what works what doesn’t work, what you like /dislike, not some guy flying around in circles, rambling on about missiles and locking on. This video would have been okay if it was just your average Joe on youtube, but for a sneak peak on a gaming website this was atrocious.
    Is this the quality of your actual reviews?

    up to date for ww2? just cuz an engine is big does not make it advanced, and this game stretches to the korea war. u obviously know nothing about war or fighter planes.

    If this can be called a good sneak peak I am not coming back for more. IMHO it’s a class act of a clueless immature nerd?
