PlayStation Universe has given Warhawk for the PS3 a 9.5/10
they've got to have something.....
Warhawk has an average review score of 85% based on 15 reviews: MetaCritic: http://www.metacritic.com/g... or 84% based on 13 reviews: GameRanking: http://www.gamerankings.com...
I don't know how the school system work in your country, but over here: A = 90% and above (BioShock, Gears of War, Oblivion, Metroid Prime 3, Twilight Princess -- the "must have" or "9 out of 10 people would love it, but 1 weirdo would hate it" category; considered as "killer app" or "system seller" if it's an exclusive; PS3 currently does not have a single exclusive in this category.) B = 80%~89% (Dead Rising, The Darkness, Heavenly Sword, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Viva Pinata, Warhawk -- the "it's good but not great or must-have" category) C = 70%~79% (Blue Dragon, Lost Planet -- the "love it or hate it" category) D = 60%~69% (Lair, Shadowrun -- the "9 out of 10 people would hate it, but 1 weirdo would love it" category) F = Below 60% (the "don't even bother" category) Right now, PS3 desperately need some games -- i.e., exclusives -- in the "A" category to move some consoles off the shelves. "B" is good but not enough.
reviews aren't everything. You know NOTHING till you've played the4 game.
can't play the games without a PS3. can't justify paying $500-$600 for PS3 if PS3 does not offer some games that get an overall review scores of 90% or above and make into the "A" category. For people to even get to play the game, PS3 has to give them the *reasons* to buy the console first -- and the reasons being true A titles. Edit: nasim, can't see what you're saying. N4G *automatically* ignores everyone with 1 bubble, and I have no inclination to take the extra step to show your comments or let you speak. You ain't worth it.
@round peg shut up u BOT warhawk got a bad score from PSM -- a magazine run by a BOT TwoWorlds got 2/10 from GAMESPY and 7/10 from BOT MAGAZINE --gamespot TwoWorlds is officially the worst game of teh century BTW blue dragon got a 6/10 from GAMESPOT...it is a horrible game
That is a nice chart u got there. Warhawk looks like a good game but anything over a 9 is exaggerating. The majority has given it an 8. 84% overall average sounds about right for this game.
You do not look at one or two reviews. You do not "cherry pick" the reviews you like and ignore all the other reviews because they give low scores to games that YOU desperate want to be great. You look at the trend. The consensus. The OVERALL review scores. The mean. The average. If one or two reviews say it's bad, then they could be biased or wrong. However, if you look at ALL the reviews -- i.e., the *reputable, respected* reviews, then a consensus emerges; then you get a good, unbiased, objective overview of how a game really is. When you look at 20, 30, 40 or 50 major reviews and derive an average or consensus out of them, then that consensus is rarely wrong. In fact, it's been right on all the time.
these three miserable wretches are explained away with one easy explanation: ============================= ============================== = ======== American Heritage Dictionary troll 1 (trōl) Pronunciation Key v. trolled, troll·ing, trolls To wander about; ramble.

RoundPeg presented well-reasoned points backed by evidences and links. It's not like he's using stupid juvenile, immature language like "Warhawk sucks arse!", "360 rulez!", "PS3 is for dumbass", or... "xbots" A troll is like nasim, and I can't even see what he's saying because he has only one bubble. A troll is also someone who uses stupid juvenile language and can't reason in his postings.
Something we have and something you don't. No 360 MP game compares with Warhawk. Warhawk FTW!!!!
Back off of Round Peg. What he is saying is he can't play a game unless all of the critics rate it highly. It doesn't matter what gamers say. He is being smart with his time. Why waste your time making up your own mind when you can just have some critics do all of the work for you and then tell you what to think. Imagine all of the freedom you will have by not having to worry about individual likes and dislikes and can just deal with that which someone else tells you to like.
What 500-500 for a PS3? As I recall amazon is doing a deal right now 475$ plus 8 BR movies.... Thats the same as the xbox 360 elite I think. Maybe a little more but at least you get a HD player with it.
"The_Round_Peg -" had very good points in his comment, which can go for every game regardless of what console. I actually agree, with how you view REVIEWS. You can't just look at 1 or 2 reviewers. It takes a a while after everybody have given their thoughts then you look at the concensus. Again Nasim+ others is trolling...hopefully you see the difference
I'm thinking of buying this game because it sounds so good, however I just can't stick with multiplayer games. I mean, I play them for a few weeks then they collect dust. I played Gears and everyone loves that multiplayer but I haven't touched that game in months. I like the idea of Warhawk, but I will wait until I can get it used.
just buy thepsn version 39.99usd is not too much to pay for a great game
Me like warhawk! Me like it long time.
it really is a great game, being knocked down cause it doesnt have a single player mode, well then i guess shadowrun should of recieved then a lowere score then, but the reviewers didnt flake out on that game about no single player mode, this game is a multiplayer game only, so why do they take points off???
Remember these are the same people who didn't knock bioshock for lack of multiplayer as well.
doesn't agree with is PRETTY DAMN GOOD. LOL - thanks for the approval troll! =D Damn bladestar - you need your head checked. The real Bill Gates is going to scold you for talking like that. Tell your brother Mart-in that it's okay...he can come out and play w/ the other kids now. We forgive him for his MASSIVE ignorance. (well some of us do anyway) 8|
Unlike you I don't mind prasing a game is it deserve it. Me liking Warhawk is nothing new... But unlike you I will not go on and flame good games like Bioshock, Halo 3 or other xbox 360 titles because I don't like the company that makes the console. Nor I will pretend that games like lair are the best thing since TV just because is on the PS3.... I'm first a gamer... and regarless of what console the game is from... I don't mind giving credit to where credit is due.
to once - just once find in my posts where I've flamed about Halo (other than once making fun of purple guns.tee hee) or BioShock. Quit making shyt up star. You *constantly FLAME ON about everything PS3 and now all of a sudden you like something!?!? Well in the eternal words of the Great Arnold Schwarzeneggar in Total Recall, "SCREW YOU!!!!"
ohh... my apologies for liking a game on the PS3.. I didn't know I was not suppost to.
and go play bioshock over and over and over again how fun is that or go find somebody 2 play shadowrun lol warhawk is a must have game warhawk is the best game out right now warhawk is the game of the year (reply)Critics tried bring all ps3 games down please Critics sucks Metroid Prime 3 !!wow!! not this year dont talk until u get a ps3 and play the game
Obviously the average review scores at MetaCritics and GameRanking disagree with you.
as much as you like it, its not the goty.....come on now.....
yeh i hate bioshock. proves all the best games on 36 are FPS. in an FPS console. and i hate FPS
You been in every topic with your BS.I am not the one who gets angry about this type of stuff, but I am tired of seening you pos the same thing,
You can always ignore her.
finally this game gets a review for what it is an AAA title. I agree 100% with the score that PSU gave to Warhawk... btw have you played the game???
This game is 100% AAA. When you realize you have to be at work in 5 hours and you have to force yourself to quit playing, thats AAA WARCRACK all the way
@tru_blu LOL thats pretty good, bubble for joo :D
hey i don't care if it's a AAA game or not im am very sure we will get those to and you all keep using games like gears or bioshock but i can garaunte that people will be playing warhawk longer then they will be playing bioshock regardless if it was a AAA game or not. shows you that you don't have to be AAA to be a great game but on a more seriouse note i just got this game today and i could kill someone because now im at work....................work sucks......................tru ly!
Resistance, Warhawk, Sigma, Motorstrom are great titles. Heavenly Sword is a good addition to a PS3 owners library though not in Resistance's league as far as Im concerned. BUT they are plently of reasons for someone to buy a PS3, becuase the average consumer does not sit around all day reading reviews about which games are "AAA" or killer aps. but they general have a good idea of which games are popular AND well recived by critics for a system. thats why this holiday season kids are going to buy 360's for Halo 3 and not Bioshock. and frankly I think thats pretty sad that such a great title isnt getting the attention it deserves. I have 5 friends who all pre ordered Halo 3, only one has Bioshock and 3 of them never heard of it. but they all owned gears at one point. I mean do people here really think these comments are moving consoles? like parents considering purchaseing a system for their kid cares what "optimusprime456" thinks about Heavenly Sword not being a true AAA title? nope.
Resistance, Warhawk, Sigma, Motorstrom are good titles but not great. Just so you know, because Gears of War and BioShock have garnered so many rave reviews in the gaming circuit, mainstream publications and media like TIME, New York Times, USA Today, Newsweek, CNN, and MSNBC have actually mentioned and reviewed those two games as well. So far, mainstream media and publications have ignore less-than-stellar titles like Heavenly Sword, Lair and Warhawk. Only the bestest video game titles get mentioned by the mainstream. Now, the average consumers do not read gaming magazines and websites. However, they do read TIME, New York Times, USA Today, Newsweek, CNN, and MSNBC. Only games that get exceptional reviews in gaming magazines and websites get to mentioned by mainstream magazine in a special article. Right now, the mainstream media and publications have just started mentioning BioShock and how it is revolutionary or insightful and worth a look. Your "average consumers" may not pay attention to gaming magazines and reviews. But they sure do pay attention to TIME, NY Times, USA Today, Newsweek, CNN, and MSNBC.
BUT. The mainstream consumer owns a wii, not a 360, as so points the fact that wii has already outsold you in less then a year. Your point is rather moot.
That's like saying people who have already bought Wii will never buy PS3.
i will say it once again, this game puts to shame anything consoles have to offer right now as far as MP is concerned. I still play gears, but it's not the same any more. I also have R6V and GRAW, all for 360 and none comes close to warhawk.
You speak the truth. I have played gears, graw, and rs6v multiplayer.. and warhawk is a whole different beast, in my opinion.
The 360 simply DOES NOT HAVE A GAME THAT COMPETES WITH WARHAWK. Put up or shut up. What 360 multi-player game competes with Warhawk??!?!?! NONE SO STFU!!!
u get used to the controls with flying the damn plane.... but everything else is sweet..blowing a warhawk with only grenades is super sweet....i been playing it just need more practice flying and shooting at the same time.....this is not ur regular FPS most ppl are always on their warhawks thats where u get to to barrel rolls and do loops to avoid those damn missiles ><'. but overall its a buy....but beware of the learning curve with the flight controls unless its just my damn uncoordinated hands hehehe and if u do buy it hope to see u in the skies.. while i blast u with AAA guns PSN : LANONTSCUZ
Ya I can not survive in the planes. No matter what I try I can never shake the damn missiles. But to me the most fun is getting a sniper rifle and flying yourself to the top of a hill/rock, oh man that can be so fun. That is until a warhawk comes by and ruins it for ya :(, lol PSN: BluHavik
Yeah, flying the Warhawks has been tough. Frustrating!!! Still been playing for 12 hours now, and can't stop. :/
I had that problem, until i realized r2 is the throttle haha I must of been easy target
your six axis motion sensing, twist it as you tilt your right stick in either direction and you will see some pretty creative maneuvering. The easiest way to get someone off ur ass is to cut as many sharp turns as you can. Basically get yourself going in the opposite direction after a roll and most of the time it's too steep a turn for your attacker to follow.
In a month or two people will go out and buy a PS3 for this game once they hear how great is, WARHAWK is a must have for any PS3 owner or if your thinking about getting a PS3. To sheng long: Your right GREAS,GRAW and R6V are great mulit-player games but they're no where as good as WARHAWK.
Warhawk has some issues. One of them is not MP only. Saying MP only is a fault is saying titles like Warcraft have a fault. No, the issue with Warhawk is one that could have been easily fixed. They should have had MP and then an thing called Arena. Arena would have been a map with no AI, just non firing turrets. This would have provided the player an opportunity to practice tuning their controls, and using various weapons on missile, gun, and bombing runs. The fact the game is missing something so simple is a crime. Warhawk is a blast...once you get into it. But they made that more difficult than was needed.
I hate Warhawk for about an hour simply because I had never touched the controls in my life, and I was playing against people who had more experience than I did. There's also a LOT of controls to learn simply because of all of the weapons and vehicles. Thankfully the game starts to get extremely fun after the learning curve is hopped over, but they should definitely have a practice mode of sorts for people to get the hang of it all.
You can do that. Go into the Local game and create a game. You'll be the only one in there and can fly around and do anything.
yep Cartman, what I did. Just make it password protected so no one can join and the map is all yours.
for about three years now, but Warhawk has officially debunked it. Good thing too since I just sold my Xbox about a month ago (-tear-). Once you start to master the controls and strategy for the vehicle and weapon types (and there are a LOT of them) the game really starts to open up. I had my doubts about there only being 5 maps, but they are absolutely enormous (around 5 minutes just to run from end to end) and depending on the maximum amount of players, the levels are structured off accordingly. I try pretty hard to find servers with 30~32 players because that's the kind of action I love to immerse myself in. The cool thing about Warhawk is that it's like finding a career. There's a lot of careers to choose from within the title, and it's completely up to the player which ones to pursue. It took me a few days to really figure out a dedicated job within Team Deathmatch, but I've pretty much stuck with Turrets since it allows me to assist both the ground troops and pilots on my team.
Warhawk is fun but not great..... Limited number of vehicles (3), limited number of weapons(8), not so great controls (I am not talking about sixaxis, I am talking about the fixed placement of keys. ie: you can't change them), limited number of maps (5).... I played for 2 days now, half my stats aren't being recorded... that kind of pisses me off. Also bad thing is CTF there's team kill, so ur teammates always trying to tk you for your flag. Overall makes the experience not as great as advertised... Then there's split screen online, the second player can't be another account of the PS3, so he/she won't be getting any stats. Fk the stats, you can't even play of the rank server with split screen...
warhawk is the best game out
Yeah the game gets kind of boring after awhile. It really isn't the best online experience like you fanboys talk about.
because Gamespot must really be fanbois of sony. ^^
i think its funny that people discuss if this is a AAA or an system seller game. who the hell cares anyway. the game is absolutely great. so anyone who wants to enjoy a bit of action online, should get it. anyone who doesn't. or doenst have an ps3, just doenst buy it and basta. and it is logical, thatsome people will not like this game so much. thats the fun of beeing human, we all like different things, and allays try to convince others we are right about something. so cheers !
Warhawk ia great a game and the review is spot on, only people that will have problem with this are MS Fanboys certainly a klller app.
It may not have the best graphics compared to other high profile games but the fun factor is way high. At the moment I suck at the game but hopefully I'll be better. Damn those snipers and experienced Warhawk pilots.
warhawk for ps3 is wat halo 2 is to xbox ... just rediculous addicting action that will cause u to wake up with it on ure mind... if u consider halo 2 AAA then warhawk is... driving a warhawk is 10 times better then any aircraft in halo, halo's got better on foot action, but the tanks an such are pretty equal, turrets are mad fun also ... both games have limited amount of guns, aircrafts, and vehicles ... the only difference is the amound of maps but honostly ppl only use the same 5 maps in halo anyway for the most part... the difference in warhawk is that wen u kill someone u actually feel really good about it cuz its not nearly as is to kill someone like in halo, much more satisfying and thats why i like it better
LOL, I was playing warhawk 10 minutes after I woke up today.
"the difference in warhawk is that wen u kill someone u actually feel really good about it cuz its not nearly as is to kill someone like in halo" uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum, WHAAAAAT???
And I have already got the shakes!! :s
Man every night I stay too late playing this game and end up being late for work because I can't wake up. I start playing around 7pm and next thing you know its 1am. The game is addictive.
I don't give a flying f*** when people say this isn't a "AAA" game. What bloody snobs! I started playing last night and can't put this game down!!!! I was in a dogfighting server and was killing pilots for over 3 hours (until 3.00am!!!!) to the tune of Topgun's "Highway to the Danger Zone" as my PC is connected to the same speakers as my PS3 lol!!! Bloody good fun! That is my definition of an AAA game....fun!!!. This, Halo 1 and Resistance has made me now love multi-player games!! If you guys that say that all you care about is AAA games that get 9.0's and above....good luck to you, you're the ones that are going to be missing out! Good on you Bladestar, hope to see you in the skies soon so I can shoot you down :) Hurry up and get it! Off to put some more hours in!
yea have to admit that reading bad reviews did near sway me to pass this one by. thank the heavens i didnt its the best online experience ive played awesome top marks .. psn hippiez2007
All of these people who have not played Warhawk, are trying to inform everyone why is not a great game... LOL... What a joke... Warhawk is a GREAT game... Let me tell you guys a little secret... most of us ps3 owners have been playing Warhawk constantly.... I just got finished playing a 12 hour stretch. 32 players 16 vs 16, CTF... ZERO lag... The game is beautiful, and unyieldingly engaging... I don't do the numbers rating system... it is a made up notion to breed fighting about points... I will say this... Warhawk is one of the funnest games I have played ever... period. Those who have/are playing this game know what I am talking about...
Yep, I know EXACTLY what you're talking about :) Damn, I can't get back onto the dogfighting server I was in last night. Now suffering withdraw symptoms!!!!!
third person battlefield? killer
All you guys love Warhawk, right? "Best multiplayer game ever". "So much fun". "Must have for ps3 owners". Right? Right. How big is Warhawk? 800 mb? But,..I thought Blu-ray was needed, in order for you guys to enjoy a game. "Blu-ray is needed for a true next-gen experience". Do you guys know that Heavenly Sword uses 12x the amount of data, just for audio? Jeah, it could only be done with Blu-ray. LMAO. It's hilarious for me to see you people contradict yourselves, by loving Warhawk en masse. Don't you feel silly for loving Warhawk as the best ps3 game out there, while it's omly 800 mb and fits on a dvd 12 times? LMAO! I think Alanis Morrisette wrote a song about it, maybe you guys know it.
