Single Player is all you get

So here's the thing, right off the bat. If you're looking to play multiplayer ANYTHING on this title, you need a code. There's no free anything except for the single player. It isn't included with the GameFly rental. You can, of course, purchase one if you're so inclined but you don't even get a trial to figure out if you like it or not. That said, if you're getting this for the multiplayer, be ready to shell out a few bucks.

Single Player is ok - The cutscenes are done in a pretty cool comic book style way which is neat but the story if flat. Combat is fun and so is building structures, but the campaign is super short. I beat it in 4-5 hours. Plus the variety between flight and on ground combat is cool in the HAWKS and provides nice variety. The gun, however, feel a little boring and not as powerful as other 3rd person shooters.

Final Word - Multiplayer? Nope. Single Player? Short. Don't get your hopes up in thinking it's going to be an amazing experience because while the concept is certainly there, there could have been a LOT more done with it. Maybe next time, StarHawk.

It was a solid fill-in game until a big one is out

The game's not bad but it gets repetitive as you continue to play. Due to this being a rental, I didn't get to try the multiplayer which may have helped the rating, but from what I got to play, it's a decent game to play if there are no big games out. Worth the rental, but may not fit your fancy. The story was pretty good, but not good enough to make you really want to know more, the graphics were solid, and overall concept was quite interesting. The game being a strategy/shooter isn't very common, but without a strong plot to give it appeal, it'll lose your interest after a few stages. I gave it a 5.5 out of 10 but rounded it up to 6.
