Overview
================
The key to this game is liking strategy and vehicular combat. This is not COD (which I like, so I'm not bashing it). You can't play this as an infantry game (extremely boring because the maps are large and all you'll do is run around getting killed).

The build & battle system is awesome once you get the hang of it. The real key is working together because it is a team based strategy game. Once again playing it like a FPS infantry soldier will not be fun. It isn't that the game isn't good....you just aren't playing it right.

One of the really awesome things is you can also play a support role. You can build up vehicles and protection around your base while others go shoot it out (for those that aren't quick with the trigger).

Pros
==============
1) awesome real time strategy (build & battle)
2) team based game
3) very intuitive controls

Cons
==============
1) graphics could have been a little better (being picky)
2) campaign is just decent (although good tutorial)

Starhawk combines a third-person shooter with a real-time strategy game and adds on some tower defense and flying. All the elements flow together wonderfully. The scenery is gorgeous, the sound is fantastic, and the added combination of defense while attacking is great.

For those of you who are upset because the rental comes without an online pass, quit your whining; at least it's not an XBox game where you have to pay for Live AND the online pass.

This game is everything I hoped for. If you are looking for a third person shooter version of star-craft2 with instant, explosive, strategic online game play then buy this game. If you are expecting a pre-set easy game then this is not for you. this game requires teamwork, and a strategy in all capture the flag, TD, and Zone game modes.
