War Robots (formerly Walking War Robots) is an online multiplayer combat game developed by Pixonic, in which players pilot giant robots (Mechs) in either 6 on 6, or 6 player free-for-all matches, lasting up to 10 minutes, on random detailed maps, competing for either beacon control or total destruction of the enemy.

This game has well over 50 million downloads on Android and iOS, which adds up to more than enough players you can match with. This reduces the waiting time, resulting in you finding a match in less than 20 seconds.

But would that match be worth playing? Read this review of War Robots to find out.

What’s the deal

Neither the gameplay formula nor the setting is unique. War Robots took already popular genres and set out to perfect them both. It takes influence from games like MechWarriors Online and World of Tanks and creates a good combination of the two with some unique twists.

Download this game on your Android or iOS device, and you’ll be able to join 6v6 deathmatches to obliterate a team of opposing mechas on one of 12 maps. While the gameplay stays the same with the main battle roles being the tank, the support, and the harasser, the developers made sure you have enough variety of choices to make this even more fun.

There are over 40 robots to choose from, and the team adds new bots with each update. Pack any weapon from an even bigger list and add a module that enhances your robot’s performance to make it unstoppable.

Obliterate the enemy’s team and ravage through their infrastructure with friends to win. The basic formula is loads of fun — and if you can get your hands on the premium weapons, it gets even more so.

The best part

Arguably the best thing about War Robots is that it’s accessible to almost anyone. While the game is an online 3D deathmatch, it has rather low system requirements, so even older Android phones will be able to run it.

But this part of the game only makes it a good option for any mobile gamer. The part that makes it really fun for all players is the clan system and the ability to play with your friends. If you want to play solo, you can. There’s even the option of a standalone match where you fight any robot you see.

However, it can be more fun to get together with your friends for a match and play as a team of 6 against 6 unprepared opponents who will scramble to counter your strategy. If you’re really into the game, you can join a clan and play matches together as a part of a clan war.

There’s a tournament going on, and every match will gain you points that will later decide who wins and who bites the dust. If the stakes are that high, you can choose to join the match with another robot from your rooster instead of exiting the losing match to find another one.

As with any other multiplayer game, the real value is not just in the game, it’s in the community that this game attracts. You can also discover War Robots lore if you happen to care about the universe.

The developer company employs writers who introduce new characters and robots within the context, so if you’re one of those gamers who care about the universe making sense, War Robots has just what you need.

The cons

War Robots has a ton of advantages. Like any other team deathmatch, it’s just fun to play, especially with friends. However, it has a good deal of cons as well. Let’s start with the least impactful ones.

Even though the game has 12 maps that feature different terrain, one can’t but notice that all of them seem, well, uninspired. The maps are very basic, and, while they do their job by making you come up with different tactics for open field and close-quarters combat, in the end, they look kind of poor.

But that’s not the biggest offender on the list. You can forgive the graphics quality because the game developers decided to make the game more accessible and lower the system requirements. The next downside, however, may be a deal breaker.

The matchmaking system in this game is awful. Multiple players report being put in one match with overpowered players who kill anyone in sight. It may feel good to walk right at your foes and shoot them to death while you’re taking little damage, but if you’re the guy in a low-level robot being torn to pieces by a maxed-out opponent, the game is no fun.

With the matchmaking system being a major down factor here, it can become hard to enjoy War Robots if you constantly get outmatched. It may not happen to all players all the time, but if you get a particularly bad streak of mismatches, you’ll leave the game frustrated.

You can gain access to more advanced equipment and boosts, but, you’ve guessed it, it costs money. In fact, it can cost a lot of money. On the higher end, you’ll pay $100 for an in-game item. While asking a hundred dollars for an in-game purchase is in and of itself questionable, the drawbacks tied with monetization go even deeper.

Players are matched based on their experience level, not the equipment. So if you’re a newcomer, you may constantly get matched with people who’ve bought a robot, top-tier weapons, and boosts for real money and will flat out dominate you on the battlefield. 

 

Conclusion


The game itself, despite somewhat poor visuals, is fun to play. However, the monetization and the matchmaking are slowly killing the fun gameplay.

The scheme here is not free-to-play, it’s pay-to-win, and that is nothing but sad. If it wasn’t for this money-grabbing practice, War Robots would be a great game.

In the state that it is now, you can only enjoy it if you play with friends to make up for the lack of investment with strategy, or if you pay for the upgrades.
