Summary: The game itself is a little confusing. Its good in the sense that it is different than most games. Its bad in the fact that it didn't go all out, and so it feels incomplete. The interface is a little odd at first too. As long as you can get the game cheap, I believe it is worth a shot though, its still interesting to see.
Summary: First things first; if you want to play multiplayer, you need an online pass, which is $10. So add $10 to the price tag you see here on Amazon that's so attractive (should be around $5 now) and think about that. You can just buy the single- or multi-player campaigns for PSN separately for about that. So if you absolutely don't think you care about one mode or the other, might as well just download this puppy on the PSN. Just sayin'. Online passes, yo. They were a thing.
Great game, but buy it new to get the most out of it.

Summary: Starhawk is, at its heart, a really inventive game with a unique style of gameplay. However, my experience with the game was negative, as I bought my copy used, and therefore was unable to play online, missing out on what drew me to the game in the first place. If you like crazy map-traversing flying/speeding/shooting action like any reasonable human being, it's a great game to shake up the usual offerings, but ONLY if you can play against real people.
Summary: When I first saw this at E3, it looked way too good to be true. Unfortunately, that was the case for me. The single player is extremely dry, really no connected storyline. The multiplayer feels very unbalanced because after a certain point, it becomes impossible to assault the opponent's base. It is too easy to over defend your base in this game because turrets and the force field are just too strong.
Summary: I am giving this game a 3 out of 5 review because it is a very chaotic game. Although fun, it takes awhile to earn XP in a match because the matches, if its filled, it is going to be very chaotic. One of your concerns is that the other player may have the advantage over you if they have a DLC that you do not have access to. The game experience can feel very rewarding but at the same time boring due to how the game was built.
