Over 2 Million Kills Accumulated In Starhawk In 2 Days

PS3 gamers have killed each other some 2,108,989 times and counting in Lightbox Interactive’s new sci fi third-person shooter two days after the game launched, according to company President Dylan Jobe. (Lightbox Interactive, PS3, Starhawk)

Same =)

Starhawk has been phenomenal so far for me! Fair enough, the campaign is a bit rubbish, but just like Battlefield 3, i would've easily bought both as online only!

The fluidity of the UI and joining games etc is unmatched in this game. Think Burnout with guns, its THAT smooth.

Any way, i've spent enough time here... *drops launch pad from sky, flys off in jet, transforms to mech and crushes an enemy*

Starhawk FTW!

I actually quite like the campaign, it's much better than I expected so far. Great game.
Welshy  +   953d ago
it's alright, i've definitely played worse, but for me it was just a trophy bait and some combat training to get accustomed to the building etc =)

the campaign is good. just as the bf3 campaign was good. good for training for the multiplayer.

people need to stop thinking in superlatives.
nowadays something either is "brillant, superb, goty" or "worst, bulls**t, rubbish".
it really sucks that most people refuse to rate in a normal way.

you guys are killing me, I'm doing a TEFL and i cant play games until JUNE

I want this game so bad I'm starting to get all teary

Welshy  +   953d ago
i use the term "rubbish" loosely as i don't count it as an overly critical word, i'd give it a 7/10.

Like i said, it's an OK campaign, but lacks any narrative or character depth. the actual gameplay itself more than makes up for this though, since its's such a blast to actually sit and play, preparing you for the online battle ahead.

The games fanbase comes from an online only original, so i think the campaign to 90% of players is just a nice bit of fun and bonus 6-8 hours for your £40.

I'd say there's a bigger gulf in quality/sales of games than there is a gulf in critical review scores.

99/100 games are now getting to the stage of £40 AAA megaton that sells a 5,000,000 copies, or scrappy games that just bomb because game development is so expensive now and consumers don't have the cash to buy from both the tiny and huge companies alike.

For example, if COD and something like Starhawk or maybe Kingdoms of Amalur released at the same time. Both Cost the same, but the big AAA well known behemoth will sell it 100 fold despite the "lesser" game probably being more creative, fun and deserving of your money.

Wish I could get hold of it. Local Gamestation had none left, only had 5 copies in the first place & Blockbuster have never heard of it in my local town. Yet both stores offered me Black ops 2 preorder for a fiver & its not out for 6 months lol. Also both stores were kitted out with Max Payne & Ghost Recon posters & statues. Not blaming anyone for this, but exclusive games on the PS3 just don't get advertised. Can you imagine a Halo game come out & nobody realised it was out, it would never happen.

Warhawk gets complaints about not having a single player campaign. Now you complain they have one. Seriously stop. If you want to play it. Buy it.

PSN ErazerSe7en Warhawk and Starhawk owner. Look me up.

I never complained about Warhawk not having a single player so you can moan to somebody else about that one chief. Nor did I complain that Starhawk DOES have one. I do want to play. And I will buy it. As soon as they release a stand-alone mp version on psn. Or when the price drops...
FunAndGun  +   953d ago
just buy the full game and don't play the SP. The MP alone is worth $60.

The game is releasing on PSN but it will be the full game not just MP...at least that is what I read.

@Holeran The learning curve is not that bad and if you do the first few levels of the Campaign, you will get a feel for everything.

You can also mess around using the Explore and Homeworlds to get your feet wet before getting into a match.

Starhawk is the best multiplayer third person Shooter of 2012!
LiViNgLeGaCY  +   953d ago
This game is seriously amazing. One of the most addicting games I've ever played!

For this game, the Mutiplayer is a 10/10. The campaign is what drags it down, yet it's a good place to start the game by giving you tutorials and such. So after all the hate that has been spread around, people are loving this game and will do for years to come.

I swear all these comments have finally convinced me... I will pick this up today!

Nobody cares about this game except for hard core nerds.
BlaqMagiq24  +   953d ago
Hard core nerds? Really? Go back to Call of Duty if you don't like trying something new and exciting.
AusRogo  +   953d ago
As soon.as I get a new modem ill be getting it!!
Hicken  +   953d ago
I've given slightly more kills than deaths to this score... slightly.
Totoro17  +   953d ago
Awww yeah!! Where did you Starhawk fans come from?! I've contributed to about 10 of those kills (while my death contributed to about 40 lol). I can't wait for this game to pick up steam! I love love love it!
madjedi  +   952d ago
You gotta figure most are original warhawk fans that game had a big cult following, the rest probably got hooked on the beta.

My only real complaint about the campaign, i really wish they had some the e3 05 capital ship battles like when they showed off warhawk initially. Who knows maybe it will be dlc or a new game.

Need a good old school space combat game, this gen.

I couldn't agree more on all accounts. Here's looking forward to the DLC.

Starhawk is awesome!!! Mp is just a blast even while playing splitscreen.

Coop mode is another good aspect of the game. I love playing the rounds and xp counts towards mp xp.

Build and battle system is just phenomenal. Nothing better than sneaking in a base and placing three turrets inside and watching it light tge enemy up lol.

My only gripe is that in some games their completely dominated by tanks or Starhawks. Those two are very powerful, but hey you have the option of tanking up or taking into the skies yourself.

I never had Warhawk by the way and played SH beta and fell in love. There is a learning curve because it is different than most generic shooters, but thats what the sp is for, its more of a tutorial. I learned quick just off the beta and i do pretty well.

If you havent tried this game dont do yourself a diservice. Try this game it is a 9 the least imo (mp of course).

Game is addicting as hell. I love the base building. That's what got me hooked like crazy. Thing I'm not so sure about is I'm earnin all these skill points for nothing pretty much because I've already applied the perk that ill be using forever so wtf is the point of unlocking any others.
