IGN reviews Warhawk, scores 8.8

How do you know when you've got something special on your hands? It could be what happens when you take the power of a new console to make a spiritual successor to an earlier title, using the hardware to accomplish things that weren't possible years before. Maybe it becomes apparent when you can completely change the primary focus of a title and discover that the redesign is much stronger than the original concept. Or perhaps it's the new concept that generates and sustains momentum for your product by itself. In the case of Warhawk, all of the above definitely apply.

The story is too old to be commented.

i was actually hoping for at least 1 9 review:(. 8.8 is good though

cloud3603531d ago

I was expecting gameplay to get the higest. coz its multiplayer game...

or is gameplay like battle system and usong comobos and moves.

barom3531d ago

I also would think Gameplay would get highest scores. I also thought Graphics would get a lot lower. I'm however very pleased to hear this review xD

i think it desrved a 9 at least going on how they scored it

heroman7113531d ago

dude 8.8 is AAA. it might not be 9 but is very damn close. its fanboys that say AAA has to be 9

doomsonyman3531d ago

nothing but triple A games for the ps3

nasim3531d ago

a genuine AAA after RESISTANCE and MOTORSTORM

HS and LAIR are also AAA --no mater whether some sites agree /not

BloodySinner3531d ago

8.8 isn't triple A. Over 9+ is.

Greysturm3531d ago

Reviewers were caliing it AAA whatever that means so its anybodys guess what the offcial AAA score actually is...

(I too thought it was over >=9 )

The reviewer thought that it was a aaa title.

"It may be multiplayer only, it may not have bots, and it may have a steep learning curve, but Warhawk lives up to its billing: a AAA experience that is an adrenaline rush for online fans. Large worlds, balanced combat mechanics and impressively deep server mechanics help this fast paced game soar. Regardless if you happen to prefer the retail version or the downloadable PSN title, this Sony exclusive shouldn't pass PS3 owners by."

Awesome review:

Ever since the beta this game has rocked it's so much fun...

snakeak3531d ago

they say "steep learning curve" like it's a bad thing. That's what rocks about this game. It's like when you first start CounterStrike and everyone whoops you, it gives you a reason to improve. I can't wait til I'm a pro flying around. It may take me a year, but I'll get there damnit! :D

Although I think Warhawk is a great game and deserves the good reviews, this game is sort of the anti-Wii. Due to Warhawk's learning curve, its a rather exclusive gaming experience. Grandmothers need not apply.

Don't think we'll be seeing Warhawk in the nursing homes anytimes soon. The complexity would probably give some of the residents strokes.
