I was a big fan of multiplayer-only third-person shooter and vehicle combat game Warhawk. It had a goofy, endearing art style. It had some wonderful, huge maps and of course it had those awesome hover-to-jet Warhawks.
While Starhawk certainly has its own distinct flavour, there's a lot of the better bits of Warhawk I see shining through this 2012 game. Here's a quick look at some of the build-on-the-fly moments in the game, and the even awesomer Hawks that can transform from hulking mech to streamlined jet with the push of a button.
That's right, I said AWESOMER!
