Warhawk doesn't do anything new. There's nothing here you haven't seen in a thousand other games. But it's also confoundingly brilliant. Why? Because rather than worry about competing with other developers and coming up with hundreds of elaborate ideas, Incognito have focused on making a straight-up online action game that's as rugged as anything we've seen - however many people are on screen, or how scenery-defyingly high you fly, the game never slows down or breaks into pop up. The controls are brilliantly simple, gameplay is fast and tactical and there's nary a sniff of lag.
