5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fantastic!, 23 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Warhawk - Game Only (PS3) (Video Game)
When I first heard that Warhawk was going to scrap the single-player and concentrate on the online, I was scepitcal, having been an offline gamer for most of my life, save for one or two nice experiences, but I bit the bullet and downloaded this game.

Needless to say, it's awesome!

You start off in a basic menu, where you can choose either 'online', 'local' (Meaning from your PS3 only, ideal when you want to practice with the controls) and 'options' (Pretty obvious). Since the meat of the game is online, let's go onto that.

Your online menu can get you onto your profile (IMPORTANT: If there are multiple PSN users on your PS3, get the disc version, if you download it you'll only be allowed to use one profile), where you can check your records and awards, as well as the clans you can join. And then you have your sever list, with a TON of dedicated servers, so even with the game's popularity, you can be sure to get into a game.

"But how does it play?" I hear you ask, well, it's great! As you get into either Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Dogfight (Warhawks only), or zones (Control more territories for more points)and Capture The Flag, granted, not too original, but who needs that when the gameplay is fun? You start off on foot (Except Dogfights), but you can get into Jeeps (Weak armour, but fastest ground vehicle), Tanks, and Warhawks (Planes that can fly in two modes, hover and flight, both have their uses). On foot you get your fair share of machine guns, grenades, sniper rifles, rocket launchers, mines and pistols, tanks have their cannon and a machine gun a second player can man, jeeps have a machine gun for a second player, and Warhawks have different varieties of machines guns, missles, and bombs to drop on unfortunate players, as well as air mines and chaff to ward off incoming missles.

But don't worry if you are on foot, and you are facing a tank, you ALWAYS have a chance of winning, all aspects of the gameplay are balanced, so an infantry team could probably best a bunch of flyboys, and a skilled pilot can evade Anti-Aircraft fire long enough to win the game.

As for technical aspects; lag is almost non-existant, I say that given that in online nothing is impossible, but for it to become a serious problem is highly unlikely, gameplay is smoother than a baby's bottom. Even with the maximum of 32 players, problems are low. Voice chat works in this game, but I cannot comment on it as I don't have a bluetooth headset, but in a game of this multiplayer focus, I do recommend a headset for maximum coordination in those serious matches.

On the whole, expect smooth gameplay, and a fantastic console online exeperience, if you have access to online on your PS3, be sure to pick this up!
