War games: If as a child you have fun with the timeless green toy soldiers, when you grow their place is taken by the war games that over the years become more complete, graphically beautiful and full of extra elements that enrich the gameplay. Now it is not difficult to find very good ones, even for free.

If you don’t believe it, take a few minutes of free time and take a look at the titles I’m going to report to you. First we will see some sites that offer Flash video games playable directly from the browser, then we will pass to a review of the best war MMOs currently available on the Net. Have fun!

If you are a fan of war games but at the moment you do not have time / desire to download particularly demanding titles on your PC, I suggest you take a look at Armor Games . It is a site of Flash games that offers a wide selection of shooters with a war background set in the most varied eras, from the Middle Ages to the future.

All you have to do is connect to its main page and “browse” all the available titles using the indicators below. By default, the games are sorted by publication date but you can also sort them according to their popularity by selecting the Highest rated and Highest plays items from the drop-down menu located at the top right .

Most of the titles can be played simply by clicking on their preview and waiting for a short upload, in other cases instead it is necessary to click on the Play now button and subscribe to third-party sites. Any browser and operating system can be used.


Another site on which you can find many war games in Flash is NewGrounds , which presents itself to users with a rich selection of shooters suitable for all tastes. There are real war titles, war-themed platforms and action titles with more varied gameplay. From the left sidebar, you can choose whether to view all the shooters available on the site or to filter the First person games (the shooters with first-person view), the Run ‘n Gun games or those contained in other sub-categories of the shooter genre.

By default, the games are listed according to the score received by users but if you want you can also organize them by date of publication ( Date ), number of views ( Views ) or name ( Title ), just use the drop-down menu placed next to the Sort by item . By positioning the mouse cursor on a game thumbnail, a brief description of the game appears, while clicking on it starts the video game.


While offering a catalog of war games rather small compared to the two sites just mentioned, I recommend you to make a “detour” also on Addicting Games . This is a site designed primarily for the little ones, so don’t expect extremely complex or refined titles … in any case, you can have the same fun and spend a few minutes of relaxation without wasting time downloading and installing software on your PC.

All the games hosted by Addicting Games, in fact, are in Flash format and can be played directly online using any browser and any operating system. The only necessary requirement is the presence of Flash Player on the system in use (which is now “standard” in browsers such as Chrome and Internet Explorer for Windows 8).


As we have just seen together, there are many war games in Flash but if you are looking for something more advanced and demanding you must necessarily turn to the MMO world , that is to say those online multiplayer titles to which you must register (for free) and for which you have to download a full-bodied client on your PC. I would like to point out some of the most famous:

  • World of Tanks – as its name suggests quite easily, it is a video game focused on tank battles . It is set in the period between the 30s and 50s and is structured in teams, the aim is to destroy enemy vehicles and conquer their base. The game is free with extra paid content. To play it, you need to create a free account (by clicking on the PLAY FOR FREE button ) and first download and then install the game on your computer.
  • World of Warplanes – made by the same manufacturer of World of Tanks, is an online multiplayer video game focused on air battles . To play it, you need to create a free account (by clicking on the PLAY FOR FREE button ) and first download and then install the game on your computer. If you already have a World of Tanks account, you can also use it for this game.
  • Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Onlineonline multiplayer shooter based on the world-famous Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon series. The game relies heavily on tactics and supports clashes with up to 16 players organized into teams. It is also characterized by many very varied weapons and equipment that make the game always stimulating. Like most free-to-play games, it can be downloaded and played for free but includes in-game purchases. To use it, you need to create an account on the UbiSoft website.
  • Alliance of Valiant Arms – this is a free-to-play online multiplayer shooter characterized by the presence of many game modes (eg Annihilation, Demolition, Escape) and a rather accurate graphics. You can choose between two different factions (the UE Forces and the Neo Russian Federation) and three classes of characters. The title is downloadable and usable for free but includes a shop where you can buy weapons and other items using real money.
