In this online-only, third-person Battlefield-style shooter, you play as an identikit soldier for one of two armies whose raison d’être is simple – destroy the opposing forces.
This can mean killing a certain number of troops, stealing the flag from their base, or taking control of a large enough area of the map, depending on the game mode being played.
There is no “duck and cover” play, no stealth; just rifles, flak guns, jeeps, tanks, and, of course, the titular Warhawks.
There are weapons and equipment hidden throughout the maps, some of which you can use to call in air strikes, and you earn medals for successful campaigns or completing specific objectives.
This is a loud, thumping, entertaining, old-school experience that just can’t be bettered.
