Here's why Sony need to resurrect Warhawk. The game that introduced me to online gaming.
Nope. Resurrect Colony Wars instead.
no Colony --Warhawk should be revived ...but pls include the first original PS1 title inside also.....it was imo the best Warhwak and one of the best games that early PS1 era
So much YES. Warhawk was easily one of my top 5, top 3, and dare I say it top 2, and easily my number 1 most played multiplayer games last gen on PS3. Definitely between Warhawk and Left 4 Dead 1/2. I've poured probably thousands of hours into those 2 games. Bring them both over to PS4 and I can be a happy man again. I'd even settle for a remaster of the same core games, updated to 1080p @ 60fps, with higher resolution textures is enough. https://s-media-cache-ak0.p...
War hawk was so great I could never really get into starhawk but absolutely loved warhawk especially the CTF mode.
Starhawk was weak
Warhawk had such great control. They dont need to do much with it. Just a shinny coat of paint and more levels/map.
How about both? They both are different enough and I know I gladly would buy them.
Or both I have no clue what this websites obsession is with either or's.
Warhawk was a raging good time. Not many games I cared to play online but Warhawk was such an awesome time.
The balance was so on point in that game.
Why even bother coming to a topic and saying something so asinine? Anyway, as long as it's much more like the first Warhawk and not W2.
Warhawk was one of the first PS1 games I owned and played. This was when FMV was still popular and being used for CD games. Good times, would love to see it return.
They're not talking about the original PS1 game. They're talking about the PS3 arena shooter. Though would love to see the original apparent 3rd person strategy title that the PS3 remake was going to be. With its flying air fortresses.
Wasn't that Starhawk for PS3? I don't remember Warhawk being for PS3 too. Bring it all back!
Warhawk was for PS3 and the online was phenominal. It also had dedicated servers as a plus
You both win a prize, there was a warhawk on PS1 and PS3 WARHAWK PS1 year 1995 https://en.wikipedia.org/wi... WARHAWK PS3 year 2007 https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...
@Idysurfn: Not only can I do that as well, but I can do it better. Show the trailer of the one I wish was around: https://www.youtube.com/wat... And also: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Starhawk was a sequel to Warhawk. Introduced base-building and resource gathering. It also tried to have the story mode that wasn't in Warhawk. That turned out to be only a SP tutorial for the MP game.
starhawk was cool. Loved the base building aspect of it.
It was not a sequal rather a spiritual succesor to warhawk. We need a warhawk 2. Plain and simple
I'm pretty sure both Warhawk and Starhawk got dedicated PS3 releases. It'd be awesome if Sony announced new entries of both, maybe the guys that made Hardware Rivals could be working on it or a small division of Santa Monica Studio could collaborate on a new game with an external dev.
You could post a comment about how you love puppies and hate taxes, and you'd probably still get downvoted.
I rallied for world peace and was disagreed to high heaven....oh well
"I rallied for world peace and was disagreed to high heaven....oh well" To be "fair" you have often launched full on at any who dare question your system of choice. Then again most here have been called an Xbot and PSlave one time or another. Or more of one less than the other. Or was that just me?
I have often launched full on at certain members who were obviously misinformed and provided my take on their opinion. These certain members have often publicly stated how they hate to see a certain excitement some gamers have for a system of choice. Meh, what are you going to do right? No matter what people are going to ramble on and sing their song.
One of the great online experiences from Sony. Starhawk was a great follow up
Starhawk was not a great follow up, they totally changed the game play by making it a base builder. People were already noobs in Warhawk and Starhawk almost made the game unplayable. I played maybe 10+ games and I did not have a single close game or even a semi close game. The difference in skill gap was HUGE in Starhawk. That is where the problem start to occur. They should of just left the SP out of Starhawk, that was just poorly done. I will say that Warhawk would be a great edition to the PS4 family and I would LOVE another Warhawk game or a remake.
What I remember of starhawk: Both teams spamming base barriers on their bases so that literally no progression could be made, and tanks sniping each other from across the map. That was probably the last time I played that game. It was a cool concept, but it doesn't work in a real gameplay environment as players won't use it the way it's supposed to be used, or the way devs intend people to use it. The mech aspect was all right though, they should have also had standard warhawks that behave like they did in the ps3 warhawk though.
The concept was definitely cool indeed. I knew the base building was going to be a hit or miss. Warhawk was already a tough game to get into. Starhawk just added to that difficulty on a game that was already a niche kind of a game.
so youre blaming starhawk for peoples inability to adapt. Typical gamer right here. Starhawk was awesome
@jugo14: So long as there wasn't a single group of experienced players versus noobs or ones just playing around.
@Jugo14 Starhawk was great but where is it now and it didn't last as long as Warhawk. Just like someone mentioned there are still people playing Warhawk but NOT Starhawk. No matter how cool Starhawk was it will always be Warhak >Starhawk. I personally HATED the build a base concept because that slowed down the game soo much. If you get on a team who was clueless you really won't be able to do anything that game. To new players that is frustrating and I don't blame them. I would tell them to play the SP to help them out but the SP was awful. I don't think it is the inability to adapt, it is not WANTING to adapt because the game had a steep learning curve and there was no matchmaking ( I think) to get even games most of the time. The games almost every single game I played was mismatched. We would either CRUSH the other team or we would get spanked. In Warhawk, you just have to worry about ground troops and learn to fly. In Starhawk you need to do all of that stuff, and as well, deal with Mechs and base building. I personally liked it but no where near to how much I liked Warhawk. You are being bias because you just see your view and you loved it. Which is fine but sometimes you need to look into other people's eyes. I barely remember Starhawk because it just wasn't the same. When people say typical gamer, that is so ignorant. You do know this is a hobby of ours. When it comes to hobbies, they are meant to be fun. I know many people who hated Warhawk because it was a steep learning curve and they didn't have the time to learn it. There is nothing wrong with that at all.
32 player Zones, so good.
Binoculars, sniper, and the huge bomb from the plane OP
Yeah well, after Starhawk flopped I doubt they'll invest in Warhawk. Bring back SOCOM instead.
and you think after Soccom 4 flopped they will bring back it?
Socom 4 flopped because it didn't have the gameplay that made Socom popular in the first place. Personally I liked Socom 4 but it was no "Socom"
I liked Confrontation better then Socom 4.
Or both I mean you guys do understand those are made by two completely different developers right?
Nicely caught. Though they shouldn't be AAA productions. AAA as a whole needs to go away. Its only real value is empty hype.
@GodMars Hype comes from the person and the media. If you ant to end hype, just don't hype it up in your head, simple.
Yeah and they both closed down 😢
OMG Yes!!! Warhawk was the only reason I kept my ps3 instead of putting it toward the purchase of my ps4. Even today it still has a decent size player count. Seeing this article, I might just pop the game in and play a few matches. I even had someone message me asking to buy my username just so he could have the blade I got for being in the tournament they had.
Warhawk was something else, they really had something great but were foolish to totally change it in Starhawk. I am happy that the developers tried something different but they should of made a new IP and NOT a sequel. I would LOVE a Warhawk 2.
Yeah, the whole build and play took away the magic Warhawk had.
Well Incognito Entertainment was the dev behind Warhawk. Then they split and formed Eat.Sleep.Play and Lightbox Interactive. some of the devs from Incognito went to Lightbox. I think that split and a new contract with Sony is what produced Starhawk. It wasn't a direct sequel and why it didn't share the Warhawk name. I think their plan was to form this new studio, create this new game (Starhawk), and roll it into a series. Starhawk didn't become the success Warhawk did, they laid off devs, and then went mobile. Warhawk was and is such a special game. I have put more time into Warhawk than any other game in my life. I was so jacked for Starhawk and the game had so much damn potential. honestly, the team stacking in that game killed it so fast. new players got hammered into the ground and put players off from continuing. It was the rabid hardcore players from Warhawk that killed the game, because they would always team up and obliterate the competition. I still feel sorrow and sadness from what happened to this series. I know it will come back one day... I just hope it is as glorious as that Warhawk digital crack from PS3.
@FunandGun You are right with everything you said. I also didn't like how the ships were also Mechs. They really did change up the classic game play. Of course, from a developers point of view they wanted to make a different game which is fine.
I got that blade too! I still cherish it
Syphon filter Nuff said
Wouldn't that be absolutely insane if after death stranding Kojima worked on Syphon Filter?
Man this game was pure magic! This and socom! Sony Please!
OMG! yes please. This game was so freaking fun!. the game is a mix of WW2 (tanks, weapons, jeeps) with a some futuristic aircrafts and maps thrown in the mix. They really got away from that theme in Starhawk, where they went all futuristic and that really put me off. Please bring this game back.
Such an underrated game!
Not before The Legend of Dragoon
Man... This game was a blast! Cool custimization unlockables, extremely well done maps, dedicated servers, and easy to pick up and play. If there were one game I'd like to see remastered, it'd be Warhawk.
I loved warhawk. Starhawk not so much
warhawk was one of my all time favourites on the ps3,would love to see it rebooted , i'd play the crap out of it all over again.
They did, it was called Starhawk. No one bought it. I thought it was really cool and probably the four other people who bought it.
Spiritual succesor not a sequal. Theres a difference.
While I understand that is wasn't a direct follow up to the PS3 version of Warhawk it still held a similar name, a majority of the same developers and was in it's foundation the same style of game. Of course they added to it and some could argue moved away from the original a bit but I would be hard pressed to say that it wasn't an attempt to capture the success of Warhawk.
You haven't played either if you think Starhawk was ANYTHING like the superior Warhawk.
I have in fact played both. I wasn't aware you had intimate knowledge of my gaming history. I never stated which was a better game I simply pointed out that they made a follow up of sorts and that "I" enjoyed it. I believe it's okay to have an opinion of a game that I own and played. As far as it being "ANYTHING" like Warhawk, I believe it is a fair bit similar and I would wager that someone without intimate knowledge of both games could draw some similarities between the two.
You have no idea what you're talking about. Sorry, not sorry.
Care to enlighten me? Otherwise thanks for your glowing contribution to this discussion....
If there were bots, I'd still play Warhawk.
i feel starhawk shoulda had a much better existance. ir was a pretty great idea and was fun as hell. would love to see that repackaged in a marketable way and get sony a good true MP game to compete with other heavy hitting mp games. they are king of the sp experience tho
The only real direction they could go with reviving Warhawk would be the original SP campaign. A steampunk shooter/platformer that's more than a simple tutorial, while still offering the MP. With ability to build maps.
