  • Summary: Three distinct races have converged in a virtual Eden, in the outermost reaches of the galaxy, each with a unique reason for settling this new world. Conflict is inevitable, victory is not. WarPath is a fast-paced FPS game featuring a unique single player mode that allows gamers to battle for control of different territories, with each providing distinct strategic advantages. Once players have honed their skills in the single player missions, they can jump online and let the real action begin. 3 different races to choose from, each with their own unique weapon load-out and appearance. 4 land-based vehicles. 8 weapons, the Wolverine, Tyrant, Long Bow, Judge, Vanguard, Vibro Blade, and EMAC, allowing for a highly diversified range of play styles. Upgradeable weapons that unlock more functionality and greater destructive force with each new level. UNREAL engine and Karma physics technology providing stunning visuals and effects. In single player practice mode, gamers can go up against 32 bots for an adrenaline-filled multiplayer simulation. 4 Modes of high-speed, intensely addictive multiplayer action - Death Match, Team Death Match, Capture the Flag, and Frontline Assault. 25 Multiplayer levels that take players across the diverse indoor and outdoor environments of Kaladi. Support for 2-16 players via LAN or Online, allowing battles to be intimate grudge matches, or all out clan carnage. Access to all the weapons and upgrades that players unlocked and mastered in the single player campaign. Collapse

  1. Single-player is utterly forgettable, but the online play is much smoother and more solid than what most of us have come to expect out of a $30 under-the-radar release. [May 2006, p.98]
  2. Common and uninteresting, this game stands out only in that one of the factions eerily like Cylons from Battlestar Galactica.
  3. Sadly, Warpath just does not rise above its awkward controls, poor character classes and mediocre gameplay nor does it offer anything that comes close to rivaling the collection of excellent multiplayer first-person shooters already available on the original Xbox.
  4. If you're a gamer that has not made the leap to the 360, must have a new shooter, and don't mind playing with idiotic bots, this game would offer the chance to run through the FPS basics and nothing more.
  5. 53
    Even the bots on the hardest difficult suffer from noticeable A.I. issues, so if this one's to be played at all it should be online.
  6. This Frankenstein seems to have been assembled from the Pariah spare-parts bin. [May 2006, p.104]
  7. On Live it's an afternoon's worth of tinsel-tawdry blah; in solo play, you'll clock three hours, start to finish. No reason, then, to bother starting at all. [May 2006, p.77]
