Basically its not better than Mech Warrior Online or Planet Side 2, so imho its doomed. Those two games target both halves of the majority of folks that would play Hawken. It has giant robots but doesn't have the heavy weight feel of giant robots. It has the crazy fast pace of modern FPS but you're in a giant target/robot. It also doesn't have anything to distinguish itself from the aforementioned games. Its just Quake with giant robot skins, imho. Just not for me.
