Played this, been also playing Planetside 2 beta.  Hawken seems interesting at first but gets repetitive and you soon realize that it's just another shooter only with mechs.  The whole post-apocalyptic art style is also uninspired and unoriginal.  Planetside 2 on the other hand has much more varied and massive environments with different climates even (2 continents so far), a lot more diverse gameplay and vehicles, they're also very responsive to their player base and makes regular adjustments according to feedback.  Ultimately with F2P its what you want to spend time on, and I'd say Planetside 2 is a lot more interesting than Hawken, hell, Tribes: Ascend is more interesting than Hawken.

Why does a free to play multiplayer only game need a live action trailer? It doesn't even explain anything about the game!

Was I the only one who liked this real-world interpretation of the game?

I wish companies didn't come out with crap like this, and instead spent that large amount of money on QA and alpha testing.  And most likely, better servers.

I normally don't like live action bs but this was pretty cool in a strange way.

lol damn...so much hate for this trailer. I thought it was kinda cool - who doesnt like mechs. Its true that there isnt a point but I think its good for generating attention and hype. Maybe it IS cheesy and maybe it is crappy acting but lol are you watching for the people or the mechs fighting each other? I dont know.

please stop making these  live action advertisments for our games.. They are misleading and very badly acted.

As a cinematographer, i'm getting tired of these action movies color correction... why everything should look green? Cheesy.

And the point of this trailer was? to show us that Cryengine still looks better then Unreal Engine? :P

That... was a really bad trailer... Didn't know about this game and now I don't want to know any more about it.

This was absolutely stupid. I thought it was a commercial at first, I was expecting it to say something about how "The Future Is Yours - Go Army" by the end of the teaser. Dumb bro-mech Sci-fi.

Wats the point of live action Traliers?  It doesn't show you anything and it has nothing to do with the game itself.  Show us the game not that you have allot of money for ads.

Damn. But still if they don't remove the shake effect when you run, I think I'll get tired of it after an hour.

Unreal 3 looks real...not Unreal....oh wait Live action, then GS whats the point of saying it's using the UT3 engine?

 @GarGx1 This has got to be one of the best looking FREE TO PLAY game ever and you are complaining about the teaser? spoiled brat.

 @Crypto6969 It shows that these so called Indie developers also love to waste money on random shit when they get their hands on publishers. Not just AAA developer disease. All you need is money.

 @euphoric666 Because the game's main color is somewhat green and yellow. Shut up if you don't know anything about what you're talking about

 @Kisalon Or that Unreal Engine still sells more copies to even Indie developers now? Despite going free even now Indies picked Unreal to make Hawken like game instead of hypeCry engine?

 @Kyrylo Yeah I hated when developers forced me to watch this live action trailer, just like they forced you. Those evil bastards..

See that column of  thumbnails to the right of the page entitled "Related Videos"? Plenty of gameplay featured in those, and if you've been aware of this game for longer than it's been featured on Gamespot (like myself), then you'll be fully cognisant of it's virtues.

Also, this game will kick Mecha-ass (including that of MechWarrior Online)

 @blacksaibot really? i prefer mechwarrior gameplay than hawken. If feels much more a simulator than a shooter

 @SpazldNinjaDude its using UE 3.0 since early development stage. Although the initial idea was to be on the consoles.

 @SpazldNinjaDude They're saying Hawken uses Unreal 3. The description of Hawken comes after the comma. It is a little confusing at a glance.

 @kengi_ikazuchi

 I have not denounced or derided Hawken (the game) in way shape or form. I questioned their reasoning for an obscure trailer that does nothing to promote the game. The trailer is bad regardless of the game quality.

 

Also please don't insult or attack others for having an opinion that differs from your own.

 

I do love the way people like yourself, automatically presume that they are talking to a child because they are on a game focussed web site. Many people, many cultures, even more opinions. Express your own and let others do the same.

Right, of course, they make an "F2P" (they're never really free, they just have an expanded demo/trial) that actually looks any good, we're queued to bow down or bend a knee in unconditional gratitude. Sheep...

It's irrelevant how good a game is. If there is a trailer for it that is bad, it should be denounced as bad.

 @doremonhg9x  you're such a polite person. Congratulations for your parents on your education.

 @desmasic it's not about forcing. IT's about wasted money and time, they could spent on the game or CGI Trailer that represents the game. Honestly, the game looks nothing like film, so why to show living people, when none is to be found in the game.

 @y3ivan You can just tell that blacksaibot isnt a MechWarrior fan. Any MechWarrior fan would look at Hawken and laugh their azzes off.
