The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

What do these ratings mean?

I'm going to. Be honest. This is more of a preview. I don't have the full game yet but everything I've seen in the demo points towards a good game. There are many ways to kill an enemy. If you have skill you can go on foot and snipe, use RPGs and turrents to keep the enemy at bay. Or you might get a jeep and drive your pal around the map to do some damage with the .50 cal on the back. Perhaps you like going solo, how about storming through the front of a base with a tank? Or sneak around the back and take out the missile turrent to allow your team-mates in the air to devastate the other defending troops with cluster bombs, missiles, electric shells that generate a temporary field of thunder or place mines overhead. Maybe you like the idea of being a flyboy, grab a jet and fly through clouds, bomb the enemy and decimate mobile ground targets with user-guided missiles. Even if you can't aim straight you can grab a jeep, sticks some mines to the front and ram into the first enemy vehicle you see. I still haven't mentioned the DLCs which bring a dropship, an APC and a jetpack into the game. All three DLCs can be bought in a bundle for about $20 AUD (it might be $30). Problems, every game has them. Warhawk is no different, no matter which team you're on Red team is red and Blue team is blue. This can be confusing for new players who are use to seeing their team in blue or green and their enemy in red. Some of the weapons are a little overpowered, the .50 cal can destroy a Warhawk in a matter of seconds if you can keep your aim straight. The machine gun also has little problem with tanks which sometimes need two shells to finish of a jeep. The graphics are nice, but the character models look too much like cartoons for my liking. The first DLC is named Omega Dawn and comes with a new map and a dropship. The dropship is amazing, you can pick up allied vehicles and drop them into combat (or water if you feel evil) then pound the enemy with your cannons (three on each side). What's more, every passenger on board (up to seven) can fire swarm missiles. The dropship has a large amount is HP so a Warhawk or two shouldn't be a significant threat. The second DLC is called Broken Mirror which gives you a massive map and an APC. The APC has got to be one of the best vehicles in-game. It doesn't have any actual weapons but it deploy a shield, carry around up to seven troops and act as a mobile spawn point. The APC also has a boost feature like the Warhawk to get away from any serious threats. The boost can also be used to charge through an enemy vehicle, and since the APC is a fast, mobile respawn point with a tank hatch you'd better move it you see it bearing down on you. The third DLC titled Fallen Star comes with yet another map and a jetpack. The jetpack allows you to fly around like a fairy, albeit a fairly with a rocket launcher. Any infantry weapons can be used when flying, which makes it perfect for attacking tanks and hovering Warhawks. You can use the jetpack to bail From a Warhawk, which is useful if you have ten missiles on your tail and no chaff. Jetpacks a great for sniping too, just hover at the edge of a cloud and snipe away. Jetpacks have the ability to use afterburners just like the Warhawk, which is useful when you have the enemy team coming after you just because you "borrowed" some flag from their base. Gametypes are pretty standard. There's team deathmatch, a hell-on-earth deathmatch and a king-of-the-hill type game, Zones. Collection is like CTF but more flags to capture (well, you're actually hunting power cores) and Hero is TDM but with two "Epic Heros" which have increased health and firepower. Warhawk is a great game but it could do with some boats and the ability to swim.
