World of Tanks Xbox 360 Edition beta now open to Europe

I've been in the beta for almost a week now, it seems like a fun game but I am absolutely terrible at it.

I've been playing this for a few years on PC not tried the Xbox version yet bet it would take some time getting used to playing it using a control pad.

I only got as far as trying the training and I'd had enough. I would have been happy with something like this on the very first xbox, but it looks and feels just too dated.

Played the PC version some time ago now and this is far more user friendly only problem I had was took two weeks to get my beta code and they had the hard neck at gamescom to say just sign up and we will send you the code all most instantly to get you playing :roll:

Despite the trailer looking pretty good, I don't really see what all the fuss is about. It looks like it could be fun, but not my cup of tea.

I'm not in to this kind of game, But saying that i've been playing the beta this week and i've had tons of fun. It's not a game i would play all the time but i do think i'll play the full version sometimes. Shame it's only for tanks though, I'd like to see planes and more modes. (Never played the PC version so don't know what modes exist) All it really needs is a way to invite friends. (Something Spartacus also lacks) These types of games are made for partys. Big teams and you need a good team with good tactics.

I've been playing it for that last week.

Totally new to WoT and a bit crap but hopefully will try and get better.

It's a good concept.

Playing it for the last few days now. Although it looks and plays a bit dated, it's actually a bit addictive. My only issue is with the controls. It seems like the any tank I play has a mind of it's own, moving and turning when I don't want it to, and NOT MOVING when I want it to. Still, it's fairly enjoyable.

It's lots of fun, once you have gotten past the first couple of tiers which are slow AND feeble. They do serve as a good introduction, though the first few matches are a bit "wtf?" :)

You can also leave a match when you have been killed and start another one in another tank from your garage to speed up progress

Have enjoyed the beta so far having played about 6hrs or so.

It does look dated graphics wise which is a shame considering it's come to the console so late in the life cycle when everything else being released looks amazing in comparison.

I like the size on the maps and from what I've seen up to 12 v 12.

I guess you need to be able to work with a team well to progress - headset/party chat. but it is oddly addictive at the moment! And considering I'm a bit crap at it - seemingly dying from one hit from a mile away more often than not it's so far served to make we want to get better rather than throw it away.

certain things you'd expect to see - people/civilan traffic in the towns you wonder in and out of. The ability to destroy buildings using the artilery tanks or even do a 'Kellys Hero's and drive into a building from one end with your turrent pointing out of a window at the other for added camoflage effect.

The time to find a new match can be rather slow at times - couple of minutes on average for me, with it taking a further 30-45sec to load the map.

Good concept that could do well when released in full, assuming it's not going to be full of micro transactions !

I doubt it, being set in WW2 I would have thought most areas would be deserted, the odd person running for cover would be realistic though

Well I have noticed it's better to play in first person on Xbox compared to third person on pc and the graphics are worse and like others have mentioned sometimes the tanks have a mind of their own.

Hopefully the full game will iron out the problems and maybe improve the graphics and add in a lot more tanks and country's that the pc version has such as British / Chinese / Russian / French tanks etc

Did you get accepted? If not you're waiting for something that'll never happen
Do you ever look at some of the other people on the internet and wonder if you missed the sign that says "You must be this dumb to ride"?
