Avg. user review score:

Starhawk gives new life to the very generic online shooter genre by requiring careful teamwork in this Build & Battle combat system. Don't expect much from the single-player adventure, but get ready to enjoy a truly exhilarating online experience.

We like

  • Multiplayer is unique, refreshing
  • Building system is fun, requires teamwork
  • Vehicle combat is rewarding

We dislike

  • Single-player experience is generally weak
  • Not the best overall presentation
  • Maps feel a bit bland
