If you liked pariah, then you'll love Warpath. Single player is non-linear and amounts to three races vying for control of a planet, with the one race who conquers the others left in a deathmatch with a pretty tough boss level to finish the campaign.
Weapons and upgrades are almost identical to Pariah, only catch is that you start with only a pair of weapons and have to take other real estate held by the opposing races to use the other weapons.
Haven't tried the online version yet, but I would guess that it is a pretty good play, based upon the maps available in the single player mode. One big difference is that you don't have the map editor like with Pariah.
Difficulty levels were increased for Warpath over Pariah. With Pariah, if you could beat the flatliners offline, then you could at least appear competitive with the online players. Now the flatliners are super bad!!!

Warpath is a fast paced first person shooter. There are only a few weapons but the weapons can be upgraded an example would be that the snipers will have thermal vision with a couple of upgrades or rocket launchers that will be heat seeking after an upgrade. Also, even though there are only a few weapons they are fun to use after they are upgraded. Another thing in this game are vehicles. There is a car with a rocket turret, a levitating vehicle with plasma guns, and a futuristic motorcycle with a chain gun attachment. The single player in the game is not a lot of fun but the multilayer seems better because you can pick from 25 maps. The maps are mostly similar but some have snow, grasslands, and rocky terrains. Another thing good about the game is you can put bot players in the practice mode or on xbox live. There are also four game types to choose from: deathmatch, team deathmatch, capture the flag, and front line assault. Overall this game is worth renting.

I don't understand how this game got a 4.7 rating! To me it gets a 9.5! If you have ever played this game it only has 6 available guns. I know it bites, but the guns are awesome! And I know that there really isn't a campaign in Warpath, but it is like Time Splitters! If you ever played it. You have all these different and cool levels! You have different game modes, this game is almost has good as Time Splitters! Warpath isn't a flat out 10, I get that, but give it a try, who knows, maybe you will love it and buy it! Or you could hate it and send it back. The choice is yours, but just give it a try. I did, and ain't gonna send it back for a while!
