Starhawk’s single-player element aside, the title offers some of the most engrossing combat found on the PlayStation 3.
Seeing some real high scores and 6.5s for Starhawk. Since I loved Warhawk, I'll pick it up.
greatest space tps ever made.
That one goes to battlefront. Sorry.
^ Halo isn't a TPS though. =/
Man... i haven't played BF2 in a long time... will 3 ever come out? I do not know, but I think Starhawk imo dethrowned BF2... even though Im a huge starwars fan, Starhawks mp is just plain awesome... Hopefully with Starhawk 2, since sony plans on making it a franchise they improve on the story.. it has great potential but it was not realized with this game... which explains why the scores are in the 7's because once again.. kickass mp, lame sp. And keep the composer... he did amazing work with the soundtrack
a possible game of the year.
^ LOL! game of the year? not even close, i tried it myself and to me it's a 7/10 game at best, not bad for an online focused game with meh story and decent grfx. i say put that crazy charlie sheen avatar back man
Bro... its his opinion, also for how long did you play Starhawk for? Did you play the beta, one match, did you even get the game... truth is I am having a hard time believing you because of the fact you said it looks like a 7/10, but no you say you played it.. meh in my opinion the game is a solid 8 great multiplayer, meh campaign. I enjoy stories more, but I soley bought this game for MP and it did not disappoint.. Also the year is not even half done with a majority of the games not out yet... who knows Re6 could suck, Ac3 could suck (doubt it) hell all the games coming up could suck. GOTY's do not matter, its all personal opinion.. if he thinks its game of the year, its his GOTY..not your but his Since Bioshock Infinite got delayed, my bets are on Ac3 or even the Last of Us if it comes out this year... we do not know what will happen.. So let the dude have his opinion
I would give the game a 4 out of ten as I enjoy single player campaigns and don't play much mp so imo for the reasons stated this game is not a good fit for me. Other reviewers base it on the same thing which is their opinion so don't get all worked up since its a ps3 exclusive as you will be commited by keeping up this kind of devotion to a japanese company that's strugling very much in todays industry and with this being another niche game I don't expect it to sell well enough to see any more in this series and I did not expect a sequal so I guess you never know but it doesn't seem likely to me with the company's financial issues.
maybe not goty but is a great game nonetheless, is multiplayer madness is great, but goty that is relative
I do think it's one of the best MP games, but I think its single player game may hold it back from GOTR status.
you simply have to see the single player as a big and nicely done tutorial. btw, hey FinancialGamer... all the good review scores must piss you off eh? its a conspiration against you!
I like how the Hawks sound like Transformers and have music. Kickass!
would cool to see a multiplayer mode with more than one team, maybe 5 or 6 like the old Red Alert games, where each team builds there own massive base and fights for territory and rift ore
One game id like to check out on ps3 as warhawk was my fav exclusive when i had the console.
I like it alot, I just need some people to play with online. the build and battle system is one of the best ideas ever implemented into a shooter. Only criticisms I have - the game has lots of jaggies, but thats probably because ive been spoilt by PC for the past year and the PS3 has no anti aliasing, love the art style though, has Santa Monica written all over it. The frame rate drops in multiplayer sometimes to low levels. The camera is a little close to your character so it is a bit hard to see what is going on at times but I suppose they did that to lessen corner camping.
Its a fantastic online game. I hope they do some dlc that adds a variety of upgrades for the building u summon into combat. Example, an improved barracks that can withstand alittle more dmg and supply troops with some new advanced guns. The building concept is the most addicting thing to me. I want it to become more complex and offer a larger variety of building upgrades. Games like this need attention, sux its getting no advertisment besides word of mouth.
