by Patman36 Awesome multiplayer game for all skill levels
Warhawk. To begin, to enjoy this game you NEED a PSN account which allows you to play with other people.There is no campaign or "missions". If you choose to play locally (not online with other people) you really cant play by yourself. It is pointless because you are the only character in the game you set up. Local play is fun when you have a lot of people with you in the same household! This game is basically made entirely for online play though... Online play is awesome though. When you first start, you WILL suck. GUARANTEED. Your online ranking starts off as "recruit", and as you play player ranked (there are two types of games, player and player ranked. You can only rank up by playing player ranked games, which are single player. Player games can have up to 4 players per console) games online your rank and skill will gradually increase. The final rank in warhawk is "general", which is EXTREMELY hard to achieve and takes hundreds of hours of play. Generals dont die very often. One of the best things about warhawk is that there is soooooo much room for improvement, it is insane. Games in warhawk can hold up to 24 online players (depending on the bandwidth of the host). The graphics on this game are great, especially if you have an HDTV and a good HDMI cable. This game has some of this best graphics with occasional glitches in certain places on certain maps. Overall, Warhawk is a great multiplayer game that will entertain you for a LONG time. I started playing 3 years ago, and it still hasnt gotten old, for every game you every play will be different with different players. And for $10, this is a must have game!

This is a solid and polished online game. I had bought the retail version on launch day and played it for a while and got used to the controls I like to turn off the sixaxis mode and just play old school style with the dual analog sticks. The game has since been updated several times and SONY has fixed many of the bugs that plaqued the game at launch. The controls are tight and accurate, the sound is unbelievable and the game is challenging. The game has DLC available on the PSN and when HOME launches there will be a Warhawk specific area to hang out and plan tactics with all of your virtual buddies. Bottom line the game doesn't get the credit it deserves. The game does say that it is a ONLINE only game on the case cover and on the back. So read/look it over if you find it. Now that the price is low, go get it if you want a stat driven, clan active/supported game for the PS3. Nothing else offers you these options on the PS3 or the 360 for that matter.
Rated 9 out of 10 by G Man Legendary It's a great game
Dont be fooled by warhawk just being multiplayer, it is a great game! I knew what I was buying so I wouldn't be dissapointed by no singleplayer. They are over 20 weappons to use, multiple maps and custimizations for your character and plane. The warhawk, the tank, 4x4, and flamethrower, rpg, rifle, sniper, grenades, pistol, wrench, knife, binoculars, swarm missile, homing missile, flak cannon, missile turret, lightning missiloe, TOW missile, air mine, chaff dispenser, proximity mines, bio releasing inducer, and finally the cluster bomb. it is seriously a great game, your warhawk is almost invincible though, hence the name warhawk and can privide awesome airsupport. It has a great online stats tracker too so you can see your kdr and points. You even rank up and have ribbons, badges, and medals. Tghe only thing is finding ranked matches to level up in, they're hard to find and there's not alot, but even playing player is fine. So get warhawk today!

This game was the reason I bought my PS3, I got it same day as the counsel. I've spent hours playing against and with my cousins, this is how we hang out now that we have lives and are married. I love that you can go in and tear things up right away. Even though I don't have an HD television, once the screen is tweaked It works just fine. I was worried at first that I would need to buy one! I love that they add expansions in this game to keep things interesting. I'd have to say the only two downsides to this game is dying every 5 seconds because everyone is better then me, and character customization at the early stages of the game, I don't mind looking like a soldier just like everyone else, but it would be nice to have a little more variety, the red team (Chernovian) look like a bunch of storm troopers, and in the char customization screen they look uber Dumb in the front, (could use a full face mask to look way more BA).
Rated 10 out of 10 by Chiko Revolutionizes online games
This is a great game with amazing online gameplay. Mainly because it only is online. The graphics are pretty good. But they do look kinda cartoon-ish, but that's all ignorable. There are a great selection of battlefields to play on, and with 16 players on either side, it almost overwhelming how chaotic it is. But the more chaos the better. I gave this a 1 in story, because as i mentioned before, its only online, no single player campaign at all. When i first got this a few days ago i was afraid that there would be no one online because its relatively old. But i was wrong, most of the time when I'm on it says 150 to 300 potential servers to join. The reason i gave length a 10 even though there's no campaign, is because it almost feels like a long game when playing it. Plus the re-playability is obviously great because its online. So if you like really intense games that have amazing 32 player action. Buy this.

This was one of the first games I got on PS3. I've enjoyed it for years! It's a multiplayer only game that's pretty old but it still has a pretty strong dedicated community still playing it. While I've had a blast with it, it may not have a lasting appeal to others due to it being multiplayer only. I know it would be fun for everyone but, some people like a single player story along with multiplayer. But who cares!? This game is awesome! Flying in planes, driving tanks and blowing stuff up, or just going on foot and wrecking havoc! The maps can get pretty big which is great! I think it goes up to 24 players at max if I remember correctly. In my opinion, this is better than it's spiritual successor, Starhawk in some ways. It just feels better for some reason. I love this game! Go out and buy it and play with some friends. You can't beat the price you can get it for now!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Corso Know your game...
...before you buy. This game is my new best friend online. But you need to be aware before you buy that Warhawk is ONLINE MULTIPLAYER ONLY. Sure, you can play split-screen with other people, but the whole idea is to go online and be part of a massive war-like atmosphere. There is really NO STORY. With that out of the way, if you enjoy large-scale online battles, with many options of firepower (on foot, in jeeps with turrets, tanks, in the air with Warhawks, ability to call large airstrikes, and so much more), this is well worth it. Especially since right now, it's only around $**-** and you can download all three booster packs from the PlayStation Store for $*****. So, for around $** total, you can have an awesome game with tons of available extras. You can't go wrong; with all the hours you will end up putting in online, you will get more than your money's worth.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Froggyxablaze A Must Buy!
WarHawk is incredibly fun. Although I only have the demo, I would totally LOVE to buy it! It's a bit challenging when playing with experienced players, but its still the best PS3 game I've played so far (I've only played a few, so uh…). The graphics are a bit cartoonish, but you can quickly get over it. I rated the length a 9 because it's only 10 minutes of gameplay (even though it's enough) but time goes by quickly when you really get into it. There really is no storyline as it is multiplayer only (except training mode, which I decided to skip). The controls are easy to get used to as the controls are pretty much the same whether your out on a warhawk, on a tank, or on foot. The sounds are good too. There is a lot of variety in the game play and it becomes very exciting once you know what you're doing. It's a good game for both guys and girls. (Proud girl over here!)

Alright, so this game starts out kind of dull. What I mean by that, is basically that you aren't really immersed into the moment until you slowly rank up and learn the controls -- which, case in point, are amazing! Although there is no story mode, the online is great because it has a finished, well-polished feel to it and there are dedicated servers which basically means no lag at all! The game mechanics are a blast, too, because of that unique display on an HDTV screen! In all honesty, if you play online games you really need to give this game a try (with it going greatest hits and all). As with the current status, even if you do not purchase the optional extra booster packs, this game still gives you a good run for your money. Right now, I have about 150 hours of gameplay down in almost a years worth of time to play it in, and it still has yet to bore me which is why I love it so much and I still do to this very day. So, bottom line to it -- if you're on the fence about buying a new game for your PS3, and are looking for a good or at least decent and long lasting game, buy this game. It really is as great as it sounds!
