  1. At $40 for the PSN file, it may be the most expensive downloadable game you buy, but it’s currently the best online multiplayer title to hit PS3.

    Highly addictive with a damn near perfect gameplay balance, Warhawk is the bomb. [Oct 2007, p.119]

    The constant pressure of combat, fuelled by rapid five-second respawns, keeps the action ripping along at a formidable pace. [Oct 2007, p.94]

    Warhawk is not groundbreaking, the developers will admit that, but what is there is the best of the best.
  5. The game looks great, can be really addictive, and offers a variety of ways to enjoy the experience that Warhawk offers.
  6. Edge Magazine

    Warhawk's manic pace makes for an instantly gratifying experience, and its brilliantly implemented notion of flight and considered balance among combat options more than compensate for the slenderness of its offering. [Oct 2007, p.90]
  7. PSM Magazine
    65
    It's fun enough, but even with the headset, it's too expensive for a game that you cannot play by yourself, and its balancing issues severely limit what you can do in the game. [Oct 2007, p.77]

    The ranking glitch is fixed. Love this game ... can play it for hours ... more maps would be great ... I'd like a Warhawk 101 tutorial too.

    As intense and fun as it can get. Very pretty. Only downside is there is not party system and you have to push to talk.

Purely internet based, it delivers a wonderful action-based from of playing, with incredibly balanced weapons. Death Match and Team Death Match isn't really what Warhawk was made for, but the Capture the Flag mode wins me over every time I play it. However, starting out can be quite difficult, but that is to be expected, but it does have the sense to only allow a certain rank range in the Ranked/Pointgain servers. Warhawk is simply what people will always want: Nearly nonstop action, and a whole lot of fun. Definitely one to add to the collection. Expand

    Overhyped and boring. I have been looking forward to this for the past 6 months and it's complete crap! It seems like it was rushed Overhyped and boring. I have been looking forward to this for the past 6 months and it's complete crap! It seems like it was rushed because of the sloppy controls. I never thought I'd say this but I am getting really close to buying the 'other' console, even though I've been a Sony supporter since the PS1. Sometimes you just need to bite the bullet and realize this is my money I'm wasting, regardless of my biases. Expand
