World of Warships: Blitz is an interesting title, as it’s a port of the widely successful PC game World of Warships, which came out in 2015. The original game sports top of the line graphics and prides itself on its crisp, lag-free presentation, that only runs on powerful computers. As a result, I was skeptical as to how the game would fair as a port and whether it would live up to the standards of its PC companion. Thankfully, World of Warships: Blitz is a mobile port done right, and a game that feels like it was specifically built for the platform. The combat is fluid, the graphics are sharp and most importantly, it’s a whole lot of fun.
The game kicks off with a handy tutorial that teaches you the basic controls and lets you blow up a ship or two. From there you are set free into the full game. One consistent thread from every mode is that once your ship is sunk you are out of the game. This adds a significant level of weight to the decisions you make in the game, as one wrong flank or missed torpedo can and often does, spell your doom. That being said, even when you’re ship does go down the battle often continues and World of Warships: Blitz gives you the option to spectate battles from the perspective of any of your living teammates. It’s a neat feature that I didn’t expect to utilize as much as I did. It’s great, as being able to see the strategies and tactics that other, more experienced players use is especially helpful for new players to learn how to improve their own gameplay.
