Please don't let the campaign suck!

12 Replies 280 Views Created 13-06-2011

While I know there's alot of focus on multiplayer, and I do think that's important I've been waiting for a Warhawk/Starhawk campaign since 2006. I want a journey, quest or adventure. Not an arena game, I want to save people or some sort of life form, not protect a rifter. I don't want to fight enemies in an arena then watch a cuscene lather rinse repeat. This reminds me of my most dispised game from this generation, Unreal Tournament 3. While their multiplayer was fun their Campaign was painfully repetitive and boring after awhile. The sheer fact that a big Victory phrase pops up on screen after you defeat pass a level, just like when players win a multplayer match is worrying me already, save that for the co-op.

 

 There are so many posiibilities with this game for the campaign, even with the structure you already have. If emmett could receive distress calls prompting him to travel relatively long distances by vehicle, in order to save towns, cities, etc. He would seem more heroic, and the sheer pace of receiving distress calls from cutter or whatever, seems action packed. If there was atleast one mission that you can fly into space it would be sooooooo EPIC.

 

Long story short I'm looking forward to an adventure and a great lore...hopefully

I couldn't give a monkeys about the campaign.


some games I consider to be primarily multiplayer (battlefield, warhawk), these games do not need a campaign bolted on.


in any case, you can tell a story of the world in which an MP game is set, the killzone 2 MP was good at this.


I would rather they scrapped the campaign, there are enough overblown narratives in the gaming world already.

In my honest opinion the thing I liked about Warhawk is that you could jump in, play some, then jump out.... one day try and actually kill something... the next day ar5e about and have fun.

 

Personally I'm a dabbler... but I understand other folks wanting more from a game

Isnt the 'campaign mode' just going to be some sort of hoarde/wave defence type game? Sure thats what i read, unless that was just the co op and there is actually a story mode to it, hope not tho, as has been said the MP will no doubts suffer greatly if there is.

Yeah...worse still is that this game can be rated well-down if it gets the single player wrong, and since this is the first attempt at it, it is very easy to get it wrong...character is stupid, plot is boring, voice acting etc. etc.. I also couldn't care less about the campaign, it is after all a Warhawk sequel!...what's Eucadian and Chernovan again?...could be burgers vs. sausages for all i care....it does add an extra polish i guess which would be cool...i'd say the focus should be 70% multiplayer and 30% campaign...and it's the gameplay and variety that matters...not some bad attempt at being mass effect or halo or something!

The single player campain for me is to get used to the buttons and kill some easy targets before jumping onto the multiplayer for a bigger challenge.

There is no need for a really good campaign. The main selling point is the multiplayer which we all expect to be of the same high quality if not better than warhawk's multiplayer. Campaigns really dont last long, take call of duty; its campaign can be done in under 10 hours, cus they know ppl will be putting 99% of their hours into multiplayer. 

 

A good campaign would be a bonus, but if the multiplayer sucks then thats what it will fall down on.

the single player i there to bring in non-warhawk players? everyone on here here will buy starhawk without a thought

 

most of us took a punt on a multi-player only game with warhawk but it is also risky for the developer to put all its eggs in one basket

 

i concur with the general opinion that the SP mode is at best a distraction for lighbox and at worst a massive waste of resources

 

 

time will tell
