NowGamer - While this is, developmentally, the follow-up to Warhawk, it isn’t a direct sequel. No, this is a different setting – a world of future Westerns and space cowboys moseying on about with their lasers and mecha-horses (alright, not mecha-horses).
It certainly adds more character to what was a particularly bland setting in the original. There’s an actual story this time around, with a single-player mode backing it up, but we haven’t had hands on with that as of yet. We do hope it’ll be more than MP with bots, though.
