Such a nice song that brings back many memories! I love Warhawk and still play it today! I guess I am a veteran.

Affecting me way more than it should. The beginning really got me. Almost scary how it did..
Exactly. It isn't about kills or points or KDR or hours or enlist date. It's about Warhawk being more than a game to you. It's about looking up in awe at Lady Eucadia or across the Badlands and recalling all of the great memories you've had and the friends you've made. Those times when you captured the flag on Island Outpost with less than 10 seconds left, or stopped the other team from doing the same to you. Tactically out-gunning you opponent and stealing his cores so you can score 10 points for your team. Jumping out from a bunker on Archipelago and assassinating 3 enemies to guard a level 3 base. The feeling you get when you win a 5000 score limit Zones game 5015-to-5013. Killing the flag carrier just feet from him scoring and fighting off hoards to save your team's precious idol. TOWing 7 people. Running into a 8v8 battle in the middle base with solders and jeeps and tanks and planes. Wrenching a buddy's tank while he annihilates man after man after man. Laughing with and congratulating the other team during intermission. Killing people in every direction to win a 32 player death match. Ranking up or earning a medal or earning a badge or earning a ribbon or earning a trophy. Listening to one of many of Christopher Lennertz's masterpieces after a heated battle and realizing how fast your heart is pumping.
This song sums it all up. Incognito did what no one has ever done, and what no one will ever do again.
This should be written in stone somewhere.

ah such good memories. However, you can buy the the entire 20 song playlist through iTunes Used a class project that needed a song from it, worked out pretty well.
As everyone's said, this was pretty much my first multiplayer game (or one that I actually cared about). I was so excited for this game. Anyone remember the Gambeattles challenges and the official Warhawk one? Oh, good times. Staying up on end with the clan, making the ladder, practicing, all to lose in the semis. Proud to be a /7 (that's old school if you can remember us ). Too bad that account got locked out (thanks Sony) and had to restart.
Warhawk is still the best game I own, even if I don't play it as much. Close to 1000 hours between my two accounts. I'd have been a general by now!
I think on the first day of Starhawk, instead of playing that, we have a giant reunion in Warhawk instead. Anyone else up for it?

Starhawk's music will never touch this. I remember when I first uploaded Warhawk on my freshly bought PS3 (bought specifically for this game) I just watched the clouds roll to the music, checked out my stats.. No Stats.. and ran through the rest of the menus as the song played out. The music set the tone for this game for about 400 hrs... then I shut it off.

WARNING: Long post incoming.
I remember when I first put Warhawk into my 60GB PS3.
I was 17 years old, and I had recently gotten my 60GB PS3, and I was looking for some good games to buy. I read on IGN and GameFAQs that this new game Warhawk was going to be releasing soon, and it was looking really good from gamers and journalists alike. I read in an article that Warhawk was supposed to reflect 1940s war planes, which I was unsure about, but the game had planes - that was enough for me.
When I got enough money, I purchased Warhawk from the local Wal-Mart. It was a pretty good deal because the package came with Warhawk and the Jabra Bluetooth headset. All the way home, I read the instruction manual about the game and all the weapons and vehicles. I was extremely eager to play this game and see how great it was.
Finally, I reached home and popped Warhawk into my PS3; just listening to the music in the XMB was hypnotic - the music gave me the impression that the game was epic on many levels, filled with amazing victories and moments. This was nothing compared to what Warhawk really was. I pressed the 'X' button to start Warhawk: this single press of a button changed how I would view video games forever.
The main menu appeared, and this song started playing. Just listening to this got my blood rushing because it is so epic. Being a complete noob, I didn't know what I was doing and got myself into a game. My first game of Warhawk was Installation - Island Outpost, as the awesome Chernovans (Eucadians are scum). I had no idea how to play Warhawk, and I even started shooting my teammates because their names were red. Soon, though, I found myself learning the ropes of Warhawk.
This first game really set the tone for me: it was awesome, adrenaline rushing, challenging, and addictive. This first taste of Warhawk will always be in my memories as the game that helped being so many wonderful memories.
TL;DR: Warhawk is awesome

I know the song but doesn't bring that nostalgia up for me that much coz I have had the main menu music turned off for a long time (there's an option to turn it off) Most of you will probably think I'm crazy for doing it but still

This thread has made me sign up to the forums.
I've been playing Warhawk since 2008. I've played hundred and hundreds of hours. I've never formally joined the community but I presume there's a decent chance I've played games against people in this thread at some point or other.
Warhawk is an amazing game. To this day I probbaly put in four or five hours a week and will continue to do so once Starhawk is released. I really hope that the new game doesn't lead to the death of this one.
To all those I've fought side-by-side with the last four weeks - thank you.
To all those I've fought against, killed or been killed by (more likely - four years in and I still suck) - thank you.
I'm about to have dinner but after that I'm logging in for yet another evening's Warhawk. Can't wait.
