  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]

    $40.00 too much? Heck no, This is the best $40 I have ever spent on a game over 20 years of playing games. This game is easy to pick up and $40.00 too much? Heck no, This is the best $40 I have ever spent on a game over 20 years of playing games. This game is easy to pick up and play for anyone, after a couple of hours getting familiar with everything you will be hooked! I have logged over 80 hours with Warhawk and I am amazed at how I am constantly having to change my battle tactics to be victorious which makes this game always fun and never boring. Anyone who has a PS3 MUST BUY this game. Just based on fun alone this game is an absolute blast. Plan to stay up late every night just to play one more game, and then one more after that, and on and on! Expand

The game delivers on pure fun and exciting battles...I can even play with my kids as a team online!! There are plenty of battles on Sony's free server, and I can take part in an air campaign, ground battle or stealth my way onto a base and help take it over all during the same battle!!!! Warhawk is sweet, very addictive and loads of fun; a pleasant break from my 360! Expand

    Warhawk is one of the most fun online gaming experiences I've ever had, and this is from someone who has been playing games since Pong. Warhawk is one of the most fun online gaming experiences I've ever had, and this is from someone who has been playing games since Pong. Though it apparently had some issues at launch the game is quite solid now and is truely a joy to play. The huge maps are broken down into smaller zones which become their own mini maps to play in, changing the dynamic of the battlefield and how you use it. A very interesting take on level design. Worth every penny for either the downloadable pack or the Blu-Ray disc with headset bundle. 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
