Hawken breaks the idea that large heavy mechs equate to slow movement. You'll instead move at a brisk pace, constantly firing your machine guns and launching rockets at the enemy. The mechs are also equipped with jump-jets, allowing you to make very swift evasive maneuvers and hover above the battlefield, so it has a 3D tactics aspect unlike most FPS games. All of this makes the action really enjoyable. See More
A current trend in online gaming is that many games do not offer a single player campaign or any means to tell a story. Sadly Hawken continues this trend as it does very little to expand on its interesting setting, which is very disappointing. See More
In a genre saturated with lone wolf games like Call of Duty, it's nice to have a game like Hawken which makes teamwork a necessity. You'll immediately notice how disadvantageous 1v2 battles are, so you'll always look to cooperate with your teammates. From things like providing covering fire to defending each other when repairing mechs, it feels nice when you can rely on your teammates on a regular basis. See More
Hawken does an excellent job of making you feel like you really are in the mech. From the vibrations on the glass when you're firing off a salvo of missiles to the swaying of the cockpit when you're stomping your way through a destroyed city, there are many details that considerably add to the immersion.

Most PS4 games with multiplayer modes require an additional subscription called Playstation Plus. However, free games that have online multiplayer don't generally need PS+ to play online, which is a much welcomed feature for players who can't fork out money for this subscription. See More
The huge array of customization comes from all of the loot you earn as you play. Lootboxes are generous, giving tiered rewards such as epic gear, like high-powered weapons that you constantly want to aim for. There's also the nice addition of unique skins that you can unlock for each of your characters, helping them stand out even more from other players who may be using the same ones as you. After every battle, you may find yourself opening as many lootboxes as you can to get as much gear, weapons, and skins as you possibly can. See More
There is little story in the game, and what there is, is often uninspired and boring. The narrative is pretty basic, and it will sound too familiar to you if you've played other popular shooter games. The gameplay in the story mode is also a bland horde mode that throws the same types of side missions at you over and over again. There's sadly not much here that's fresh or interesting. See More
Thanks to a variety of gear from lootboxes and in-depth skill trees, you have a lot of control over how your character plays. Customizing your preferred character with certain gear with bonuses to damage or defense, for example, and then doubling down on those stats through the skills you pick is a great way to tailor your gameplay experience. You have many ways to make your character your own, which ensures that no two players will have the same experience. Whoever you spend the time to customize the most ends up feeling unique to your playstyle. See More
Battleborn mixes FPS gameplay and MOBA-like elements. You shoot, use special abilities, and gain exp as you kill enemies, allowing you to select new abilities as you level up. This adds a surprising depth to the standard FPS formula since a kill advantage will also make you stronger than your opponent. Fortunately, it's not just about being a good shot, since you also need to plan properly, use abilities at the right times, and know when to take risks and when to avoid them. See More
The fast, fluid and powerful style of FPS gameplay makes you feel like you're taking on the entire army yourself. It's not just that you can kill a lot of people quickly, but the movement is so fast and dynamic you can simply out-maneuver everything. It's parkour meets Call of Duty with really fun weapons and abilities. See More
Titanfall 2 comes with a single-player story campaign that also acts as a warm-up for the multiplayer component. Whilst the campaign is short, it's a quality narrative with a great main protagonist and supporting characters. The voice acting is strong and the cutscenes are a spectacle to watch. For those who played the first Titanfall and were disappointed by the story, you can look forward to a much better one this time around. See More
Aside from playing as a regular infantry soldier, there are also huge mechs on the battlefield, known as Titans, that you can control. As soon as a player gets in the cockpit, that's when you know that the tides are about to turn. Titans are big enough to act as tanks for your allies, soaking up damage and dealing a ton more with their specialized guns, giving your team a huge advantage just by having one with you. But they're not all-powerful, since a normal soldier can get on a Titan's back to dismantle it and take it down, even though it won't be easy. Titans are strong without being overpowered, turning battles into power plays to see who can take out the enemy team's mechs the fastest. See More
While playing as a regular soldier, you have great mobility with jetpacks that allow you to run on walls. Maps are designed with verticality in mind, giving players options to use their jetpacks to climb above the opposition for a better vantage point. It also gives you a leg up when facing against a Titan, since you can always run along a nearby wall to get on top of the mech to take it down. This helps to make sure than infantry soldiers aren't just weak fodder for Titans to take out, with their speed and parkour abilities as their main advantages. See More
Titanfall 2 is a great team-based FPS game with well-designed gunplay. Running and gunning with your team of six friends or online players is fast-paced, with tons of destruction on the battlefield all around you. You rely on twitch reflexes to gun down enemies as soon as you see one rounding a corner, or to react in time to someone shooting at you and taking you by surprise. Everything feels balanced in a way that's well thought-out, leading to frantic and intense multiplayer matches. See More
