The few things I feel are missing from this title are:
- A motorcycle or some type of ground-based speed demon.
- An air ship bomber class that can take a few hits with multiple people occupying it, one pilot, one bomber and maybe 2 turret gunners.
- An easier way to find online games. There should be a mode in every online game where I just hit “I want to play” and it just finds me the lowest ping, first available game and gets me in the action without thought. Though the menu system is quite pleasing to look at for a couple minutes.
In conclusion, I would recommend this game to anyone that owns a PS3. Due to it’s many styles of play I think anyone that does more with their console than play Tetris will find something they like here and it’s a great way to blow off some steam when you get home and just want to frag something.
Note: The boxed version comes with a Jabra BT125 wireless Bluetooth headset, which works quite well. You can find the headset for around the $20-$25 mark, so the additional cost for the boxed version of Warhawk is warranted. If you do not have a wireless headset, the Jabra BT125 is easy to recommend. The Blu-ray version also comes with one "making of" video of the game, and a bunch of game trailers you can download from the PS Store.
Warhawk is rated T (Teen) by the ESRB for Blood, Violence. Note: the retail box has the Mild Language descriptor, presumably for the bonus content on the disc.
