Although it’s named after the PSone game – featuring derring-do – you should not confuse Warhawk’s mix of online, multi-player, third-person, shootin’, flyin’, grenadin’ fun with anything old-gen.

Don’t confuse it with being a single-player experience either – it’s not. Warhawk has to be played either on four-player, split-screen locally, or with up to 32 players online. You can even set your own PS3 up as a server, leaving you to control the maps, the map rotations, elements such as spawning times, death match, team death match, capture the flag and other combat features.

Developer Incognito has taken the idea of rushing around rich landscapes and blowing the living hell out of the opposition to a logical and immensely immersive and, most of all, fun conclusion. From jeeps to the airborne Warhawk planes themselves, everything is easy to get the hang of.

The vehicles – all of which can transport you and your colleagues into the pits of hellish fighting – are not the whole of it, though. You’ve got a range of weapons, including rocket launchers, sniper rifles, mines, flame throwers and a horrendously effective B.F. Knife to master.

Get yourself a Blue Tooth or USB headset and you can also communicate with your comrades in arms as you battle across a variety of landscapes, earning points and – if you’re on a Ranking Server – levelling up.

Combining intense combat action with community (read: Clan) features, Warhawk manages to get really push the PlayStation 3 online.
