Well, it seems the NDA is no longer in effect for all the Hawken players. Anyone interested in leaving their opinions here, feel free to do so!
Personally I can't figure out where I stand on this. I love it because it's easily accessible for a mech-game and it does have a lot of options. Matches are pretty easy to come by and it feels like they never linger too long. The only downside, for me, is that it feels almost like a dudebro (I want to say CoD-y) iteration of a mech game. I may be completely off base about that last assumption, but I just can't shake that feeling.
