I cant belive there are people on here crying and moaning about this game not being good then i see they didnt even play it because it has an online pass and still give it a 1 at least try it before dissing on it i just paid $20 bucks for it and i know everyone has their own opinion but i think its fun belive me i know that there is some crapy games out there but this isnt one of them just do what i do wait for the price to drop then buy it im just saying if you are a gamer that nitpicks about every little thing then you are truly missing the BIG picture games are made to play and have fun with friends-family or if you dont have either then i guess yourself there has to be a game or two that everyone enjoys and if not try a diffrent system or maybe games arent for you if all you do is talk trash on them and play just to find something wrong but i cant understand why anyone would not try or like a game because an online pass
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.
