@angryjedi @unmanneddrone I’d say Hawken is at least worth a try since the open beta just started. I’ve been in since the second alpha, and from my experience it’s basically Call of Duty in a mech suit. Well, in terms of structure anyway. There aren’t killstreaks or perks or anything like that, but the game structure felt kind of limited to me. Maybe there are more than two modes in the full game, I dunno.
The whole thing is pretty much exactly what I expected it to be: use points to buy attachments and such for your mech, augmenting its abilities. I haven’t played Armored Core or Mech Warrior so I can’t talk about similarities. I’m just saying that it felt surprisingly similar to regular on-foot shooters, just you’re a mech instead of a person.
