"A third person shooter that never quite gets off the ground" according to PSM. Scan attached.
That doesn't get great reviews, but still fun to play.
I played the game and nothing is more fun than it.
The BETA was super fun ,super addictive and super amazing
The graphics are great but its not Bioshock.
The sound is good but its not up there with Heavenly Sword.
The game control is great, but its not as sharp as a Tony Hawk Game.
The multi-player is great but there is no ending for the game.
I agree perhaps reviewers are over thinking the reviews. Its a multiplayer only game and nothing more. Its not trying to be Halo and its Not trying to be BattleField 2042.
I didn't know games got deducted points for just being enjoyable to play. It also seems that originality means nothing to PSM as well.
EDIT: The reviewer got his AZz Owned playing it. Look at the bottom left picture( of a warhawk). Under the picture It says pretty fragile. Did the reviewer expect the warhawks to be completely indestructible? I bet he did and he is sad that his plane never got off the ground because the other "mean players" kept picking on him. Freaking Noob.
Good points but I think the Warhawk demo was more fun than Battlefield 2142.
But this game has originality and a lot of other positive elements plus great online performance thanks to those dedicated servers...
Truly unfair scores. Two really bad and unfair scores in 24 hours. BioShocks 9/10 from GS and now Warhawk's 6.5/10...
I agree MK completely. This game is Digital Crack. Once your hooked, its hard to put down. Reminds me of when Halo 1 first came out, and how addicting that game was. This game deserves at least a 8.5, but not a 10/10 because well, there is no single player. People might also cry fowl because of such high ratings for a Multiplayer only game with "good" graphics.
I am interested in how Halo 3 reviews stack up in the following weeks and how many stupid comparisons between WARHAWK and Halo 3 there is going to be.
Has anyone else realized theres two pages if you have good eyes to read what it says? I can't find page 2 at all... besides that, cameras don't take pictures this small with that much bad quality.
To those disagree'ers: Seems like someone is still using those 1985 cameras. :o
but i never expected high reviews for Warhawk...i mean i was in the beta and the game is really really fun but the graphics are not quite that good...gameplay is awesome though...i think all the review are going to be in the 7's for this game...good game though just not impressive...
this game is very nice, it will be addictive to play with friends off or online
Word is that they scored this 6.5 because it has NO SINGLE PLAYER. Bah! Up yours PSM! That is, if it's true and not a photo shopped image scan. :P
By the way. The screen shots are from gamespot. Ooops!
gamespot would rate this game
Warhawk was never going to be considered a AAA title and I don't think that this review was unfair. Dont let the scores bug you or stop you from picking it up, this game though not perfect will still be a solid title to play online and chances are you'll get some enjoyment from it.
killers app AAAAAAAA 5/10 6.5/10
@MK-RED:BS3 fan girl who is afraid to show it: 9 is not like 6.5 plus BIOSHOCK already got 14 prefect reviews ..in ur face.. or better i say in ur neutral girly mask...EDIT:oh another 10/10 for bioshock GAMEDIALY
"Two very (gleaming?) flaws damage Warhawks appeal. The first is the (submission/exmission/somethin gmission) of bots. That means you can only play this game - which costs $60 dollars - with other people and-"
I hate bots.
Where's the other page???
The degree of self-deception and illusion here is simply astounding. Tell yourself whatever lies you want to believe, or rationalize away the truth however you want to, sometimes the truth is too painful.
(note: the ironic part is every disagree or "-" I get is only a confirmation of my correctness--now that is some good old freudian psychology)
ok i am very confused right now. Who did this reviewer play with online?? Or did he review the beta? Since the game is not online and since there are no bots which is what he is ranting about and forgetting that the bots can be added anytime as a future update, what did he actually review? The full game in an empty world or the beta??
Hang in there, the same thing happened to us with Shadow Run, that game was awesome but was bashed by reviewers because it had no single player and cost 60 bux, as long as you know the game is awesome screw the dam review scores.
thank you for not being a fanboy jeremy
Did they play by themselves or something?
I'm thinking so. One of the true easy to play fun games without getting owned the whole time. Unless (as you said) you play alone.
im guessing they did. ign said they were looking forward to this game and they are currently holding up a tournament for this game.
who ever review this must have
gotten paid off by microsoft
i play this game and this is the
most fun i hads since socom 2
And people actually agree with you?? You guys really are morons.
I guess if Sony's first and second parties make a game it must automaticly be AAA. Does the cell processor make up your mind or do you?
Sony kids=funny stuff.
i dont think that ms would do that considering is PLAYSTATION magazine.
too bad for warhawk im still going to buy it.
For those PS3 fans disappointed with PSM's latest Warhawk review, you will find this interesting:
PSM: Independent PlayStation Magazine, Future US Inc.’s leading publication devoted to coverage of Sony’s console, has appointed Rob Smith as Editor In Chief. Prior to his position as Associate Publisher for both magazines, Smith contributed as Associate Publisher of Official Xbox Magazine (OXM) and before that, as Editor In Chief of the publication.
Interesting. I hope it's not true for the sake of me not wanting to hate on X-Box biased employees trying to screw with Sony's game...
How about a proposal. If the consensus amongst general reviews is that it's nothing more then a mediocre online game. I'll concede. It makes me feel bad that I think mediocre gaming experiences are amazing. I wonder what I'm missing out on :\
That's true, he stated in his introduction 3 issues ago that he was the Editor-in-chief of PC gamer and then the Official Xbox Magazine before becoming PSM's.
I really doubt he joined the mag to give PS3 games bad scores. I mean think about it, this is his career and what he's been doing for a long time. Not everyone has made it their life goal to bring down the PS3 and Sony.
@ dr pepper
u have a point but why has ign and everyone else has been praising this game? there has to be a reason. i can only think of this game being good so maybe it was a biased person . ign is holding a tournament for this game, that shows u how much they like it
Wow, PSM gave it 6.5!!??I was expecting a 9 from them and at least 8 from most reviewers but with this and 1UP already talking about its price affecting their score... God help Warhawk. The game is serious fun IMO but maybe not in opinion of those reviewers.
The price is reduced though isn't it?...60 for the game with extra stuff (a headset, movies, etc...sort of like the SE addition)...and the regular game is 40 I think...
It is worth every penny of either version...and is an absolute must own if you enjoy online combat games...
Now people comparing this to Bioshock...that is ridiculous...one is only single player...one is only multi...bioshock is amazing...and will probably be the best single player experience this year imo...but Warhawk will probably be the best online...
my moniter fuzzes out on that scan...so I can't read why they gave it such a low score...the Warhawk beta was the most fun I have ever had online on a console...
well Lair couldnt keep up with Bioshock
now Warhawk cant either
hey maybe Heavenly Sword?
wouldnt a playstation magazine be biased???
whats up with that?
I do really hope that Heavenly Sword is up to the challenge and if I'm not mistaking, PSM already gave it a 9 or higher. :)
Still, 6.5 is way too low. Even the demo alone deserved 8 and now with this being the full game...
The Bioshock demo was amazing, but I still wait for the game to come out before I form an opinion. You don't know what will happen outside of the demo.
The only thing I can think of is that maybe the Beta let you do too much and the reviewer felt like they were playing the beta with more levels. But no fear for early adopters, downloadable content is on the way.
psm is a fake azz playstation magzine
...is definitely more fun than a 6.5! Sure, granted I'd like to see about five more world maps and a few more vehicles, but the developers have already promised LOADS of downloadable content. I've said it a million times: this game isn't really unique, spectacular, or revolutionary, but it's DAMN FUN! And heck, coming bundled with a $45 headset doesn't hurt, either!
Odd, I was in the beta and I had a blast.
From what I read in the magazine scan, they faulted it being online only.
By that logic Counter-Strike, Team Fortress, and that online only game for X-Box Live (Shadowrun? Shadow something?) Are all failures.
They also faulted the price...It's 40 bucks...and free online with free dedicated servers. Seriously now, I'm not trying to damage control, but I will call out people for being idiots if they're logic falls outside the boundaries of reason. Like the EGM Lair review.
Edit:Shadowrun was seen as a failure because of it's high price and lack of quanitity of maps. The game was amazingly fun...
Agreed. Multiplayer games like Team Fortress and Counter Strike are among the best and Warhawk seems to be the next big thing in multiplayer gaming, considering the great demo.
Um...Shadowrun was seen as a failure...
PSM3 is the most popular PS mag by far. Their reviews are honest and professional most of the time.
Edit: Bugger it, i'm buying it... f*ck the review. I can make my own mind up.
I was in the beta,
I have 10 PS3 Hating fanboys for friends. We spent countless days playing the beta. Thats all we did. They didn't leave my house. ITS THE COOLEST GAME DUDE, ITS A MUST BUY FOR ANYONE WITH HANDS.
I don't know how many times the game crashed an hour, i was still compelled to play. Comparable to the amount of fun i had playing TM2 for the first time.
Don't believe this bs review. DarkArcani and sexybeast69 are right. This game is VERY addictive and you will not be unsatisfied. I will remember the name of this specific reviewer and take his reviews with a grain of salt now. If I hadn't already played it before maybe I would think otherwise, but I have and so have a lot more of us. Don't believe this crap.
are you for real this guy needs 2 be fire
from that fake playstation magzine
that game suck Mobile Suit Gundam Crossfire
seriously? I hate it when a reviewer is biased towards certain genres. those idiots should be neutral.
How the hell is does that game get a better score then warhawk??? The game wasn't even playable frame rate sucked!!!!!!
Everywhere I look says PSM gave Mobile Suit a 5.0.
If there's one thing I hate it's people making stuff up to distort FACTS.
Also, consider the fact that a lot of you are PS3 fanboys who only get to play the 3 decent next-gen games on PS3 and the guy that reviewed it probably plays at least 3 new games a week. Think about it for a second.
If you like the demo though, buy it. It'll just be more of the same...
Games like shadowrun, and warhawk are really good, and fun games but lack content. The score is probably low just because it is 40 $'s for an online game. I don't know, but I doubt this game is bf2 quality, because the graphics aren't as good. Also PSM, is part of 1up. So you guys could blame them.
is NOT part of the 1UP team. Official Playstation Magazine (OPM) was part of 1UP though, and that was discontinued recently due to each issue being expensive (mainly because of the demo discs).
PSM is an UNOFFICIAL gaming magazine, and it was ALSO the one that claimed Killzone PS3 in 2005 was real-time...
The thing with Shadowrun was it was kinda hyped up, then it came out and nothing more for it. It didn't get great reviews but it's still one of the most fun games out at the moment. I think that's gonna be the case with Warhawk.
I'm still waiting for my copy this month but that's pretty low. I want to see who reviewed Warhawk. It would be interesting if its the new Editor-in-chief Rob Smith who used to be the Editor-in-chief for their Xbox magazine and the one who stated in PSM that the best PS3 controller would be an Xbox look-alike lolz. Come back Chris Slate.
Looks like "Professor Umbridge" got inserted as the high inquisitor for PSM.
FU you PSM!
Poetic and straight to the point. Summed up all I wanted to say in only three words...
They failed to mention the downloable version for $40.
Does anyone have the entire review?
There's got to be some actual reasoning other than price and just being online =|!
wow i did not expected this but it doesnt matter because im going to get this game anyway and i need a bluetooth headset
I HAVE PLAYED THIS GAME. THe review is horrible. THE GAME IS AMAZING AND IS SO MUCH FUN. Alot of strategy and only an idiot would give it a score like that. All Beta testers would agree with me
See ya in the game
Let's review the reviewer and give him a score.
I give him 10/10 turds.
^ bunch of babies signing in to n4g again.
I read this earlier today and it seemed basically they were complaining about the price of the game and it only being "online only". I did just skim through it but it seemed like thats what they were getting at. Im still really wanting this game though because of the fact of playing it online.
then suddenly i saw this..
I immediatly spat my coffee out.
and did someone kick you in the face and said you were an idiot?
of why I don't listen to reviewers. I loved the beta, and would buy this game even if every review from here on out gave it low scores.
i was in the beta
i played this game for hours at a time
That guy's reputation is now on the line.
What score would you guys and gals give it?
