Warhawk is an amazing multiplayer experience. Almost everything is spot on, and players will have a lot of fun taking on different roles and trying out different tactics to reach their objectives. This title is a must-have for PS3 owners.
- Simplistic menus and descriptions will help anyone become a server host and ranked pilot.
- There's a ton of ranks, ribbons and medals to earn.
- Graphics are beautifully enticing.
- Steep learning curve without documentation or tutorials.
- Only works on one PSN account if you download it.
(continued from previous page) ...eyes, and background music will have your heart pumping adrenaline faster than the gameplay.
For those players that prefer to have the game on Blu-ray disc, the package deal of the game is available for $60 dollars instead of the $40 on the store. The retail version is packaged with a Blu-ray disc along with exclusive extra video content as well as a Jabra BT125 headset, which nicely complements the in-game community aspect. The headset charges up very quickly and works brilliantly for up to 30 feet. For a consumer, the decision is purely based on whether he/she prefers to have the physical copy of the disc on hand. First off, the beautifully crafted special addition piano black headset is a nice addition, but it's understandable that some people may not want it if there's another headset that they prefer to use. They simply might already have a headset and don’t want to waste the extra $20 on an additional one and some exclusive footage. But, we should warn all of you right now. If you have family members that want to play on your PlayStation 3 or on their own respective PlayStation 3’s, the best option is the Blu-ray package regardless. With the downloadable one, you will definitely not be able to allow a family member to play it on his/her account on a PlayStation 3, let alone any other account on your own PlayStation 3. If you have a gaming family, or a brother who wants to play the game with his own stats, buy the Blu-ray disc! It’s worth it.
Warhawk is definitely an AAA experience in the bigger flight of it all. There are nuances in animation such as rolling bodies to realistic explosions, vehicles and Warhawks, unbelievable lighting effects that cast mind-boggling effects as they cast on the environment and other nice touches. Character models change based on a player's rank and their personal preferences with their outfits, so you will definitely see a lot of variety in terms of warfare player setting. To top it all off, the environments are quite verdant and the fact that a map can be sectioned into many different ways makes it one of those things that keep the replayability virtually endless. With all of these various features, combined with a balanced gameplay core, and utterly beautiful graphics, everyone can be rest assured that Warhawk is one heck of a flight no one wants off of.

Very cool, but since it has no single-player I wont be picking this one up.. not all for online/multiplayer gaming.. so thats ashame but oh well, looks great.

This is game a killer app for Sonys online games. Fully entertaining. I really dont know what kind of killer game youall looking for. Bioshock is not an MS first party title either so it might come on the PS3 later on. Haze is coming and so is Unreal III.

i was not going to buy this game originally because it was online only. However, i decided to give it a try because it looked so incredible and i must say i am impressed with this game. it does not matter that it's only a multiplayer game. To me, if it's fun it's worht it and this game definitely is. Go pick it up today if you don't already have it.

i couldnt wait for the bluetooth retial so i downloaded it today, almost on a whim through the gayest am television id ever seen. and god damn this game does not dissapoint, sometimes its so involving your almost cant seem to function because so much is going down around you. probably the most amazing game i ever played.
I put it on after a quick game on graw2 and it was so rediculous how bad that game seemed - even though i like it. This is what the ps3 is all about. and its only just got started! yeah!!!!
- 9:53am EDT - September 1st, 2007
The game is hot.. its a 10!!!! And F all you guys that like to babysit on the Canon's.. Ima get ya!!!!!!! :) :) Lol

9.5 it is ... and don't worry peeps more maps are on the way! This game is the Bomb! Never before have I seen such draw distance! Great Job!

Best online game i've ever played. Love it. My PSN username is Delta-Ops if you want to add me.

9.5 is what this game deserves. Great Review! I urge everyone to give it a go. If you like multiplayer, quit whatever game you are playing right now and get into Warhawk. If you don't like multiplayer... give it a try anyway because this is THE BEST ONE by far! Nothing else is close. You truly feel like you're a part of a huge, strategic battle with limitless options. I advise taking advantage of the offline split screen to become familiar with the controls, levels, and weapons. Online can be tough for some, but this is the first game I've played where you can have fun even when your a noob because the options are limitless and the worlds are massive. Creativity plays a bigger role here than ever before in a death-match game. Some are complaining about limited levels. Not me. Try saying that once you've taken the time to master each one of them. The levels are huge and very well suited for game-play. Each level is a gem. More will come as add-ons. In short, Warhawk is the hottest game at the moment and I expect before long "everyone and their mom" will know it.

It sounds like a great game, gave it a 9.5!

I think the game is really great in terms of FUN gameplay, you know I find myself laughing even when I'm kickin A** and then all of a sudden BLAM! I finally get knocked off my perch! But, there are a few things that would have made it a little better. I won't rehash all the problems everyone else has already mentioned (And you all know what I mean!) but through patches here and there I'm sure they can make it perfect. What I wanted to know is, do you guys think they'll eventually have new downloadable content? Maps, vehicles etc? I can see a few things they could add in time. But overall definitely worth every penny (And I'm a SOCOM fanatic, I KNOW, I KNOW!)LOL. This game is fun where SOCOM and it's players are way more serious! This game is more laid back in that respect. Well, I've blabbered on long enough, take care all!

Just what this game deserves.
- 12:48pm EDT - September 2nd, 2007
Hmmm was looking forward to this game, but If its sooo hard for a online noob I dont know...
- 11:15pm EDT - September 2nd, 2007
Its a 10 for me, man mad online game of the year for sure.
- 7:52am EDT - September 3rd, 2007
Damn, that's a really high score.......hmmmmm
- 11:46am EDT - September 3rd, 2007
i gave it a 3.0 this game should not of gone live, its still in beta form. heres my reasons why: The game freezes for no reason, the ranking system is broken, you do the awards it says you need and it wont give you the rank, you log in 1 day and ur a recruit next day back to ur normal rank and then later on back to a recruit. the ranked server system is by far the worst iv ever seen, decated ranked servers... if you host a ranked game you cant play in it, how bull is that. KS'ing is by far the worst part of this game, you can be fighting ppl and then someone shoots a random shot and gets the final hit and in turn gets the points for it. the points need to be by % based dmg. WTF is wrong w/ these beta testers, did they not give them any info at all?
- 8:59pm EDT - September 3rd, 2007
I'm glad I got the downloadable, this is one game you'll want to access quick when your friends join a big game. Can I change my score to a 10 when they fix the bugs? This is really a 10 game with a few bugs making it appear imperfect.
