Free-to-play multiplayer game Hawken won early plaudits for the design of its mechs - complex mecahnical carbuncles, with cockpits crammed full of switches, dials and blinking lights. Being a firstperson game, the view from inside the mech immediately communicates a sense of both heavy encumberment and huge power, as your robotic exoskeleton lurches and stomps through the grainy post-processed streets of some towering future dystopia. Beneath the hood is a fast-paced arena shooter of some depth and the scope of its action has expanded since launch - though we still have qualms about the way the F2P model stifles your desire to explore the game's possibilities.
