i had a lot of difficulty figuring out the controls, or what i was supposed to do, or why buildings kept falling on me. i think i'm getting the hang of it.
i was surprised to see that i'm still a champ at driving the jeep and that the controls were very similar to warhawk.
i'll continue to play when i can, but i couldn't log on this evening.
I'm with you, I don't know what it is about Warhawk, but it certainly kept me from playing the few games I bought since. Good games like Metal Gear and KZ2 that you mention only have a few hours playtime. Warhawk has a strong pull.
My 15 year old son had a buddy over last night and they played the heck out of Starhawk. He never liked Warhawk but is loving Starhawk. I spent some time watching them and learned quite a bit.
I find the controls mostly familiar. Like you mention, the new jeep is like the old jeep. The front seat passenger can now fire his weapon. Yeah! Not sure where the emergency brake is. They just added a pro mode or something like that to the new hawk, so that feels familiar. So familiar that I still suck at flying. Curiously absent is the tank, one of my favorites.
So far, so good. I don't know yet if it will have the Warhawk "magic" that kept me coming back for more, and more, but it appears to be on the right track.
