One of the first games announced for the PS3 has finally been released. Was this title worth the wait?
The PS3 hit a winner with this one. In the future, this title will be considered one of the first killer titles for the PS3.
For me, first killer app is Resistance, followed by Heavenly Sword and Warhawk. I also love MotorStorm and Lair. Will be getting them all soon.
The first killer app i think was definately resistance. Its a brilliant game
it was the first FPS that i completed since Doom, but to me Warhawk easily wins
it draws anyone that watches into it and makes everyone want to play. this game, more that any other, makes all my friends want to go out and get a ps3. in fact, two just did because of this game.
Yes warhawk wins in online gameing but it wasn't the first killer game for the ps3 RFOM was and IMO still is one of the best game for the ps3
Resistance was awesome, but only after a few days of the multiplayer I was getting ready to sell the game (I didn't though). I'm having a hard time putting down Warhawk. I havn't had this problem since Halo 2 and Starcraft.
units. This game is quite fun but it's too early to call it killa.
I'm more suprised Lair and HS did not have that titles, just goes to show you, a game that is far less graphic intensive but moreso about the gameplay outshines games that is all about visual everytime and lacking positive control scheme..
we won't know wether this is a killa app untill we see why people bought their ps3's in teh next couple of minths. then again new games will be out to compete.
resistance, anotehr game that was bought because nothin was out. A killa app stand the test of time when it is in competition with other games.
dude resistance was awesome. resistance is wat got me into / good at fps. i had halo on my comp and i sucked at it cuz i could nvr aim right and wen i would shoot i would move around the target alot. with resistance it all changed for some reason. it was easier to manuever and destroy and shoot. so all u that have played resistance, u have to admit it was awesome.
What are with all the reviews and articles coming out of personal blogs?? Is this the new trend here in N4G? The blogs attack?
Have news praising all things Sony, but find all the negative Halo news. Never ever any negative Sony news, ever.
The fun thing is that I get the same thing reversed when I post negative news about PS3.
Guys, there are good PS3 news and bad PS3 news, good 360 news and bad 360 news. I try to post them all.
yeah i'm not too big of a fan of this blog stuff either. and they always sound contradictory. Resistance was a killer app and came before Warhawk. Motorstorm for some were a killer app. Ninja Gaiden Sigma was a killer app. Oblivion although a bit old was a killer app.
Bringing old franchises back from the 90's is hard as rocks. Sony succeeded in someting Square and Nintendo do all the time. Warhawk is back with more appeal than it ever had!
Agreed. Bringing back old franchises is really hard (Just look how Sega and Midway keep screwing once legendary games).
The team not only brought the game back in full glory, they made it a better game and a true killer app.
is Warhawk does deserves credit. i'm all about the 360, but when the warhawk beta came out, i played it on my cousin's ps3 and honestly i thought the game was awesome.
So the only 'Killer App' (not even an average AAA rating though) after almost one year of PS3 is
A 800 MB DOWNLOADABLE GAME?
That's all? Nice... 600 Euro... Mhhhh... Or 349 Euro for a 360 Premium with real AAA games? 250 Euro less and more to play. Ah well PS3 owners can still put in Casino Royale when the Warhawk servers blow up again I guess
Mart is right Warhawk is fun but if the PS3s killer app is only Warhawk something is wrong.
How do you play these AAA on your console when it's always out for repairs?
Let me guess, 45 minutes at a time.
wow another casino royale joke, get new material. Guess the people who make those jokes just are angry that no one is buying HD-Dvd's to play on their xbox.
seriously though, all online only games have problems, world of warcraft did. As I recall people who downloaded the new plasmid pack for the precious bioshock caused problems and kept them from playing. Just like that didn't hurt everyone, not everyone is having problems with warhawk.
ive said it before and ill probably say it again..... what a c0ck you are...! dude the xbox section is the next tab over....
the xbox must be one hell of a console if most of its owners fell the need to spam up ps3 threads purely because they're jealous!
Your Xbox is getting jealous.
YOu're just pissed that Warhawk ruined your predictions of 6's. People like the game and you can't deal with it. You act like you didn't wait almost a year for gears. You act like this is the only game coming out on the PS3 in the next year. Get a freaking life dude. None of the crap you spew is working. You're not chaning anyone mind. All your doing is showing how incredibly biased and lame you really are.
BTW, I bought my PS3 because I wanted something reliable. I'm quite happy with it too. No issues what so ever. On top of that, I've enjoyed the hell out of Resistance, Ninja Gaiden, Motorstorm, The Darkness and Warhawk. I will also be enjoying the hell out of Heavenly Sword and Drakes Fortune. That's all this year. I'm more then happy with my selection.
What, the last circle jerk around your Xbox between you, POG, and Bladestar didnt go so well? Carefull that console can get hot!
I'd rather the servers go down for maintenence for a few hours that my god damm heap of sh!te the old grey unreliable xbox blow up on me after an hour of gameplay anyway screw you and kiss my a$$
I'd rather the servers go down for maintenence for a few hours than my god damm heap of sh1te the old grey unreliable xbox blow up on me after an hour of gameplay anyway screw you and kiss my a$$
jajaja themart you are so right, maybe we will see warhawk in xbox lve arcade in the future jaja
resistance was great but it just wasn't killer for me. Warhawk however i definety do enjoy.
I just hope they fix the issues with the stats and stuff.
love this game!
Warhawk does seem like it could be great...if they can work out some of the network problems and bugs.
I've spent 30 minutes some nights before just trying to get into matches and stay in one long enough to finish. Other nights it works fine for an hour or so.
COD4 Beta is more robust and stable than Warhawk.
I really don't know what why everybody seems to be having problems.
I bought the game 2 days ago and I can't put it down. Even on ranked servers I haven't waited more then 5-10 minutes to get into a game. and when I have gotten into a game I play for hours.
Warhawk is great. The one thing that I wish it had is perk system similar to the one in C.o.D4 MP.
Same here it takes a while sometimes to get into a ranked game but once in I'm not having any problems 4 and 5 hour sessions
Warhawk is indeed a great game, only problems I have is getting into an official ranked game in the evenings, most nights I simply give up and do something else.
The adventures of nathan hale over warhawk any day but that is just my opinion.
Are you sure you on the right site because if you talking about how this site has "never ever any negative Sony news" then I guess you are on Playstation.com or something. Are all the NEGATIVES reviews about LAIR, Warhawk problems, Sony insulted HALO 3, Killzone has dumb AI... ? Ya stop being a f**king fanboy because MS aint paying you sh1t to kiss their asses.
Let me ask you a question what killer app game the 360 has for the first 10 months since it cames out? I consider Gears is the FIRST killer app the 360 has.
People (especially 360 fanboys because they know they have a lot of good to great games) keep comparing the two consoles when the 360 is almost 2 years old and the PS3 is not even a year old yet. If you guys want to compare the two in terms of games or online service (Xbox live is like 5 years old and PSN is 10 months old) then you need to do the correct comparisons. It is not that hard. Once again. MS IS NOT GOING TO PAY THE 360 FANBOYS ANY MONEY FOR KISSING THEIR ASSES.
The other thing is that how do you know Warhawk is the "ONLY" killer app the PS3 has because last time I checked there are a whole bunch of great games coming out in 08.
not to mention that if you say well what about this game? I say fall of man was a killer app when it came out, but then they just say, pssh its good, but not a killer app. There is no point trying to convince them.
To be real and fair the 360 only had 2 games(GRAW and COD2) that was wroth getting, the reason why I know this is because most of my friends went out and bought a 360 in its first year. It didn't start having most buys until GEARS was released in Nov and thats when I bought my 360, so for 360 fanboys to say that the PS3 has no games will its only been out for 10 months now so please try to be fair.
And after this holiday session theres going to be a ton of games on the PS3. So theres no way 360 fanboys can say theres no games because every month starting now there 2 to 3 exclusive games for the PS3, then next year you get games like MGS4, FF13, KILLZONE 2, GT5, LBP and much much more(I won't make a big list like some people).
Wrong, Warhawk doesn't have an average review of 90% or more, so its not AAA. Only AAA rating average given is Oblivion on the PS3, which has been worked on over a year after PC/360 version
The 360 had its AAA title directly @ launch: COD2 scored 90%
PRG3 came pretty close with 88%
Oblivion after a few months 94%
GRAW 1 within some months 91%
PS3 fanboys like to believe Gears was the first AAA 360 game, but there were more, and earlier then the PS3 has/gets them. Only AAA for the PS3 this fall? Uncharted maybe. Lair, Heavenly Sword and Warhawk all won't be AAA like Sony hyped them to be. BUMMER
Oblivion was a killer app and it came out in march for the 360. Anything over a 90 on metacritic is a killer app in my opinion.
Wow hell has frozen over for the first time ever i think i actually agree with The mart!
haha if you think COD 2 was a killer app you need to stop playing games.
You need to lay off your crappy percentage stats and actually play them for yourselves.
You need to chill out with the stats, try finding a female friend you live in holland so there's no problem you can pay for it
No excuses Mart :)
dude who really cares what scores a game gets? if halo 3 got 8/10 are you saying you wouldnt buy it? you must be to young to formulate conclusions for yourself and rely on the help of others to walk you through each game holding your hand and tell you if its any good or not!
seriously dude, your about 12 years old right? if not, then probably some 40 year old virgin living with your mum.... what a c0ck...
So you base AAA soley on Game site review scores? What about sales, consumer experience and the countless posts stating that this game is awesome. For a guy that hates the PS3 you spend an awful lot of time posting, reading and commenting on PS3 news. Too bad you havent spent a fraction of that time on Warhawk, you'd feel differently. Its funny how you comment on the Wrahawk servers not having spent a minute on them, I guess your 'press pass' didnt help with that.
haha I like how you say warhawk isn't a killer up because it has to be 90% but yet you say PRG3 wasn't but it was close, why not the same leway for warhawk, I wonder. Gosh classic fanboy double standard!!
The point is there wasn't that many must have games for the 360 when it first came out because 360 fanboys say that there isn't any games for the PS3 when in fact neither did the 360 when it first came out. PGR3 sucked and thats why I traded it the first month I got it (now PGR4 is what PGR3 should have been and thats why I'm gettingit on day one)the only good game were GRAW and COD2.
To rev20: I'd have to disagree with you I feel COD2 was a great game and I think it won game of the year when it came out.
AAA can mean different things to different people so I personally stick with reviews tabulation sites like metacritic to decide what is AAA or not. Getting paid to play and review games carries much more weight than a 12 year with a spelling problem and only a ps3 giving it a review (yes nasim I am talking about you). Most reviewers play games on all of the systems so this helps limit bias. A good game is a good game. I have no interest in the opinion of single system owners; single system ownership is the paramount trait of a fanboy and leads to extreme bias because mine is better than yours cause i say so! I wouldn’t respect a review from someone who has not tried all sides of the gaming spectrum and as such I respect the tabulation of cumulative review sites like metacritic. Life is short and I only have so much time to play games I am not about to waste my time and money on a game that 90% of the people who play it say it sucks. My views 90% of the time align with the PROFESSIONAL gaming media. If a game gets 90% plus it has something going for. If it gets below a 60% Cough lair cough than I am not even going to bother simply based on the fact that I only have so much time to play games. Is it possible i would like the game? Yes it is but the chances of me thinking it is great are slim. I think most of you are disagree with The Mart because he is a known fanboy; it’s not that he isn’t making a valid point because he is. Oblivion was a AAA game, GRAW was a AAA game and so was COD 2. I owned and beat everyone of those games and loved every second of it. Saying that the percentages don’t mean anything is simply cognitive dissonance, if the percentages swung in your favor you would be going on about how important they are.
I think WARHAWK is going to be a sleeper hit/underground hit like HALO was when it first came out. People are going to buy this game for a very very very long time until it is a proven francis for the PS3, right now only hardcore fans are going to buy it until the game becomes even bigger then what it is now. I'm happy the PS3 has a multi-player game like this one, before you can only find games like these on the 360(except RFOM)and thats why I went out and bought a 360.
But times are changing people we'll see a ton of games on the PS3 that will prove that the system is not going to sit around and just lose this gen console war. Right now its true if you want games you go to the 360, but after this holiday session that will all change. Next year is when the PS3 truly shows that the system has to be taken seriously, Q2 08 SONY will drop the price to $400 and by next holiday session 08 $350 to $300. The PS3 is a system that can be compared to China (a sleeping giant).
I hope people don't read this and start a flame war and I hope to god that they don't call me a SONY fanboy(I'm not I love playing both systems and I'm seriously happy I made a investment in both of them)all I'm trying to prove is that people shouldn't sit there and say its over for SONY when games like WARHAWK proves that the system has something to offer all gamers. And think about it this gen console war just started and a winner won't be crowned until 2009, so we still have a long road a head of us people.
Even though it has some issues that they are working out...it is still the most fun game out there. The best third person shooter...better than gears of war, since there can be up to 32 players online, instead of 8 in gears of war. It has more variety than gears.
If only heavenly sword or lair had a online battle mode.......
You haven't played Gears have you?
ive made it my personnal mission to take all his bubbles then i dont have to read anymore of his crap....
anyone who feels the same? you know the mission now make it happen!
Do you know how to read? Did I say anything about Warhawk being an AAA title? I think it should be an AAA if not because of the PSM review (6.5 I think) and Gamespot (8.5 and the only negative feature in the game according to them is the in game help is not helpful which is not important). You consider a killer app is a AAA game. For me, a killer app has to be a good-great game and it has to help its console to sell most. That's the definition of a killer app if you ask me.
And about all the percentage that you posted. I think you should go post a poll and ask ALL the 360 owners that which game did they consider a first killer app for the 360 between Gears, COD, Graw.... I already know what game they will vote for and I'm pretty sure that you know the answer also (if not then stop living under a rock and stop being stupid)
TheMART feeds on our attention so lets just leave him alone. Anyways, I love this game. I don't care if reviews only gave it 8/10, that's their twisted 360 lovin' opinions. I know this game beats Halo 2 multiplayer with a huge bamboo stick and thats all that matters to me.
its obvious that he and the rest of his Xbot crew are getting nervous over the ps3 and the success Warhawk has had. it makes him feel better about his decision to hate the ps3 by posting stupid comments that hold no water.
i mean really, who's gonna let Mart tell them Warhawk isn't a AAA title?
leave him alone. lames feed off attention and he and his group are proof of that. it's plain to see that their precious 360 is boring them and thats why they come here to spam ps3 news all day.
if you need more proof, look at every positive news about the ps3 or its games and you'll see xbots all over. they are afraid. afraid they will lose again.
Wow! The PS3 finally got a decent game! Maybe now you guys can stop posting fanboy comments and actually play some games.
For all the talk about Xb and all these fantastic games it has, I have nearly 30 games on it and to be honest alot of them are crap. There are less than I could count on one hand that I really couldn't do without. And no surprise either that they are nearly all shooters, (and available on PS3 as well).
If Xbots have so many good games, why do they spend all their time talking about PS3?
Coz, [email protected][email protected][email protected]
I am mostly a lurker and I rarely ever get involved with these threads but I can't help myself when I hear such nonsense coming from some of you on here. I own both the PS3 and the 360. Up until Warhawk, I didn't get into R:FOM because I was living in the Gears world for a long time, I barely ever touched my PS3.
Warhawk is simply the best online gaming experience I have ever had on any console online. I said this a couple times under other Warhawk articles and I will say it again.
Show me one game on any other console that runs as smoothly as Warhawk online with 32 players? Oh and btw I don't have to pay $50 dollars a year to play it and I downloaded the game for $40 bucks! The 360 does, for now, have the edge overall in terms of gaming variety but Sony has the better downloadable games IMHO and nothing on the 360 beats Warhawk for performance and fun factor.
Gears of War is a simply stunning game but it runs like crap online. It was / is filled with bugs and glitches and it never held a consistent frame rate. When you use smoke grenades in the game it almost comes to a stand still. Again "nothing" on the 360 comes close to Warhawk in terms of online stability. No slowdown, frame rate issues, gameplay bugs and glitches, 32 players and just plain silky smooth gameplay in all it's insanely fast paced glory.
on deaf ears brother. All the fanboys (PS3 and 360) on this site don't care about reason, all they care about is that you don't talk about their console of choice.
I agree with what you posted 100%
As you can see I get disagrees but no one can dispute what I wrote with a valid point or comment. It just goes to show the ignorance and immaturity of the fanboys on these groups and forums on the net. It's nonsense like this as to why I rarely ever have my headset on when I am playing an online game on the 360 or PS3.
Sad people out there. It's a freaking entertainment device people. Grow up!
I like how all you Sony fan boys attack The Mart. Why is it his fault that the PS3 is slow or sucks. You guys should be referring to Sony in the same light as you refer to The MArt. LOL
I just love how you PS3 fan boys make a mess out of your selfs all on this site for the public to see. NICE!!!! LOL
my "killer app" no doubt.
R:FOM was a launch masterpiece.
It's all in the eye of the beholder I suppose.
*Can't wait to play Warhawk.
#20 -- NO one wants to hear how badly you want to have man sex with Mart-in. Get lost &
You are so right R:FOM is a masterpiece for a launch title(I just got it last week and it fun as hell online the first fps that makes me want to play online) and MOTORSTORM is a killer app(I haven't seen any racing games on the 360 right now that can match it graphics and its fun), and we all know WARHAWK(I can't wait to get it) is a hell of a game.
man i actually cant wait for the retail vers to hit the uk, i sleep better knowing that soon ill be warhawking :)
ah The Mart and his AAA smack down
what a bitter little man.
skitziod is right on and he has both systems (u lucky fukr). I have friends that have 360's and i play there games. I had fun on Gears but no game can match what warhawk is online. 32ppl smooth running kill fest. Yes there is a problem with ranks and getting into ranked servers but once im in it shows no problems at all.
Its the best online all out war game i have ever played. And i love my online shoot em up's!
I agree... PS3 first Killer App is warhawk.. In my opinion only game I would own if I had a PS3.. at least until Metal Gear and Final Fantasy are launched.
It's kind of ironic.. The best game is 800mb and is designed to be digitally distributed. It goes totally against what Sony and some developers have being saying about the importance of blu-ray this generation. A game does not have to have 30GB to be a good game.
You don't think is true... Warhawk > Lair.
ฺBecause we have choices, bladestar. If we want good and wide varieties of download content we can have in on PS3, we can d/l full games like warhawk or Ps1/psp classic, we can download arcade classic like gauntlet, and we can d/l original arcade IP like calling all cars.ฺ Because there is not space limit like LIVE that put 250MB cap on live so the distribution of full game like Warhawk is almost impossible (that fact might change if MS decide to change their mind) That is why digital distribution on PSN has much more varieties of games. Moreover if we want a huge HD game like killzone2 then we can have it too, 40GB on blu-ray is a good thing. Yes DVD game might be deliver the same quality of games, but we got more choice because we simply have more room for our content.
My point is PS3 fans (and some fan boy with reason) have their right to rave about Blu-ray and PSN because it offering the contents that we want.
Warhawk is a great game, but its not the reason to disregard Blu-ray.
don't be so jealous of the PlayStation 3. It's just plain obvious now that you all are so miserable.
Also you exclaim that:
The 360 had its AAA title directly @ launch: COD2 scored 90%
PRG3 came pretty close with 88%
Oblivion after a few months 94%
GRAW 1 within some months 91%
How can we as objective people with brains and not on an XBox Intravenous tube, believe these reviewers - the lot of which wake up every morning with their Microsoft spectacles resting firmly on the bridges of their noses. Case in point: DiRT. How can these people give an equal score to a superior game? Bioshock? Tiger Woods? You and Warhawk? 6's anyone? Man I know you are sooo pissed it hurts.
I don't trust the reviewers and certainly not you. Again, why are you here trying to 'convince' PS3 owners to agree with you? The scary part of it all is that thammer is in here actually siding w/ you. What's wrong w/ this picture?
You guys go play Bioshock or Madden or Eternal Sonata(lol), or DiRT, or Two Worlds, or Pacman, or Forza2, or GeOw, or Blu Dragon, PGR3, or GRAW2, or COD2, or Dead Rising, or Oblivion, Bomberman lol, or, or, or, or, or, or, or, or SOMETHING. There's got to be something that holds your attention span more than good 'ol PlayStation 3 news. Right?
Then again, maybe not. 8D
loads of fun just wish my stats would get updated anyone eles's stats gone missing
back from the netheryears? That game is similar to Warhawk and seems like a welcome genre on a nex-gen system. I played that game until my eyes bled.
