PSLS: Starhawk, LightBox Interactive’s spiritual follow-up to the online-only PlayStation 3 exclusive Warhawk, is about to drop on Sony’s home console. But is it the worthy successor that fans have wanted?
Loved Warhawk, will hopefully love this
At first it feels very different. But once you get used to the Build & Battle, it feels much more like Warhawk.

Why not an 8?
If only there was a giant body of text to help show why a score was chosen :P
I played the game I got it yesterday. I think it's at least an 8. Other websites agree too.
If it was a 7.9 I could see your point, but they obviously felt it didn't deserve a 8.
Yet every other website is giving it an 8 at least. Just saying they're trying too hard to look different.
really whitefeather? Because the Verge gave it a 6.5
Trying too hard to look different? This review was published the same exact time the embargo lifted. We didn't SEE anyone else's reviews, so there is no way we were trying to "look different". I gave the score I felt it deserved. .5 is not a huge margin of difference.
The Verge? Seriously?
"I played the game I got it yesterday. I think it's at least an 8. Other websites agree too." That doesn't mean all upcoming reviews of the game will give the game a score of your expected 8+. I'm just saying, reviewers generally go by their own opinions and award the game they think it deserves.
That's the problem people keep thinking that a review is an opinion but it's not it's a rating of the game's quality. It has to be professional. @Sev yep. That's my opinion.
Unfortunately, Whitefeather, people think a personal opinion and a professional review are the same thing. They can't seem to get that, with a little effort, people CAN give a more objective view than what they'd do with just their opinion. Of course, professionalism in gaming journalism has gone down the drain, overall. And, often, instead of acting on the part of the gamers they should be reporting to, they report as if gamers are the problem and gaming companies are in the right at all times. While it's true that, even in a more professional, objective review, the author may come to a different conclusion than your own, it shouldn't be their "personal" opinion.
im glad ign didnt down score it dues to its single player, it looks like they know what this game is all about
This is about what I expected. (7.0-8.5)
graphics are a negative? the game looks great to me but whatever. kinda disappointed that starhawk hasnt got an epic tale. oh well, still gonna play the SP :D
Why wouldn't you ride a HAWK?
A pretty decent score. Finally I could hop on to this series. I regret missing out on warhawk, but this time I'll give starhawk a chance. The rts element is a plus since I love rts games.
Never was all that interested in this franchise.
OK score, personally I have waited for a game like this for a LONG time.. seems to be doing something no other MP game is doing.. That alone means it's a must own game for me. Though I do think it deserves a higher score, it seems all games do these days....
You guys didn't even explain why graphics are a -
Better than expected, but I'm not buying based on the beta.
