You break free from a drop pod after a fresh respawn, and immediately a Hawk swoops within your team's shield generator and launches an array of cluster bombs, disabling that precious bubble of protection the generator had been providing while enabling...

In 2007, gamers were treating a re-imaging of a PSOne Classic by the name of Warhawk. In 2010, the on-screen action was ramped with the release on the online spectacle known as MAG. Two years later, developer LightBox Interactive releases the spiritual...

There’s something satisfyingly visceral about Starhawk’s self-constructing, tower defence inspired structures as they fall from the sky. Thundering towards the ground in a neatly compressed package they land with a camera shaking metallic thud, kicking...

It’s the single player element that proves the weakest link in the package, as whilst it isn’t terribly conceived, it remains a shallow experience, providing nothing that a decent tutorial couldn’t have done in preparation for the plethora of more...

Let me paint a picture for you. You're pinned down behind a small barrier; 3 to 4 enemies are closing in on you on foot while another continuously dive-bombs you with a futuristic, miniature jet. You have exhausted your entire arsenal and are down to...

Starhawk is truly a gem in the PlayStation lineup of 2012. Frantic and addictive multiplayer combined with some unique gameplay elements make for one of the best multiplayer experiences available in the industry today. It’s just too bad that the...

If you're reading this then it means you haven't run away from the thought of a third person shooter using RTS elements. One could be forgiven for the inevitable shudder that crawls down your spine when thinking of games like Brütal Legend that thought...

Veterans of Warhawk, the second-to-last game from the studio whose employees went on to form LightBox, will be able to jump right into Starhawk—as soon as they come to understand the game's deceptively complex "build-and-battle" system.

Build-and-battle genre mash-up, gorgeous stylized visuals, deep combat for hardcore players

Steep learning curve, style-over-substance campaign, horrible AI

Starhawk Review: Laying a Solid Foundation

 

Developer LightBox has crafted a fast and fun (if imperfect) shooter hybrid.

Imagine you're surrounded by the enemy in a game of Capture the Flag. A stream of rockets slowly chips away at the walls protecting the flag, and it's only a matter of time before the walls crumble and reveal a path straight through your base. Yet, by...

Yeah, I'm going to take a lot of flak for apparently not rewarding a game with clearly excellent online multiplayer. But I remain stoic in my belief that a single-player campaign should boast a solid story and shouldn't merely serve as a warm-up for...

The Ugly: “If you’re gonna do this, just don’t bother with a campaign.”

Starhawk Review

 

If you can handle some turbulence, getting the hang of Starhawk's bustling battlefields is an exciting pursuit.

Novel building mechanic creates diverse combat ; Lively blend of ground and airborne vehicles ; Attractive visuals ; Challenging cooperative play

Jarring transition between different modes ; Some multiplayer elements are poorly explained

The five-hour campaign lets you play around with all of these things, though basic structures like turrets and supply depots are much more heavily featured than more advanced buildings. In each level, your loadout is tailored to the task at hand. This...

Starhawk Review

 

Warhawk is a tough act to follow, especially when the developer decides to change its trademark multiplayer. Does Starhawk's risk pay off?

Like its protagonist, Starhawk is a half-breed, something out of the ordinary and against tradition. It picks up the narrative slack on the battlefield, where a simple strategy system is an inspiring spin on the third-person shooter. This hybrid form...
