As derivative and uninspired as WarPath’s premise of sci-fi deathmatches, base assaults, and capture-the-flag contests is, the game still succeeds on a basic level.
Shooterplanet (Apr 20, 2007)
WARPATH ist zwar kein großer Shooter, aber für den Preis von 20€ ein kleines Spielchen für zwischendurch. Man sollte allerdings nichts Neues erwarten, hat aber immerhin seinen Spaß, auch wenn die Abwechslung fehlt.
Playfuls (Aug 07, 2006)
The implementation of destructible vehicles is more than welcomed, but the pleasure is sabotaged by an improper design of the battle arenas, twisted, narrow and thus not allowing an efficient control (I already know the analogy you'll make, who doesn't recall UT2004's Onslaught mode). Most of the time, the lack of space brings about real "traffic jams", solved only by firepower. The rides become the key element in the unwanted change of pace.
Gameslave UK (Apr 18, 2007)
Gamers who are looking for a serious, story driven game should avoid Warpath like the plague, but if you are looking for an unsubtle shooter with big explosions and relentless action, it might just be worth a few quid out of your pocket.

Ondanks de lage prijs zal deze flagrante Pariah-kloon snel van de budgetbak naar de vergetelheid verhuizen.

In the end, Warpath misses the mark on a number of levels. AI is some of the worst you'll find in a shooter, the design is uninspired, and the gameplay reeks of half a dozen other titles. WarPath tries so hard to be other games that there's no room left for innovation or more than five hours worth of enjoyment. Even for a competitively-priced title, it's a waste.

Warpath ist ein durchweg solider Online-Shooter, der keinerlei Besonderheiten aufzuweisen hat, um sich aus der Action-Mittelklasse hervorzuheben. Obwohl die Levels größtenteils gut gestaltet sind und brauchbares Potenzial für rasante Duelle gegeben ist, fehlt es letztendlich an Multiplayer-Kontrahenten, was wohl u.a. daran liegt, dass Warpath vor einem Jahr in den Übersee veröffentlicht wurde. Trotzdem würde sich das Spiel auch im Mehrspieler-Sektor nicht gegen die Konkurrenz durchsetzen. Warum? Es gibt nur die klassischen Spielmodi, ein langweiliges Standard-Waffenarsenal und die Fahrzeuge sind aufgrund der zu kleinen Karten kaum nutzbar. Deswegen müsst ihr euch im Solomodus austoben, der gut angedacht ist, jedoch an der schwachen Intelligenz der Bots krankt.
GameSpot (Jul 27, 2006)
So, with all that said, the answer to the question posed at the beginning is, ultimately, no. Warpath, while not devoid of enjoyable qualities, doesn't have enough going on in either the multiplayer or single-player departments to really be worth your time or money. The multiplayer definitely can be fun, and at the relatively cheap price of $20 on the PC and $30 on Xbox, those in serious need of a new FPS for their chosen platform could find Warpath entirely tempting. But considering the number of multiplayer FPSes currently available on both platforms that not only retail comparably, but also manage to provide both a compelling online community and a single-player campaign that's actually worth playing, Warpath looks rather perfunctory by comparison.
IGN (Jul 25, 2006)
While WarPath doesn't do anything blatantly wrong, it fails to do anything new. Charging through the repetitive metallic halls of each level will feel very familiar to anyone who's played a lot of first person shooters. Even the bots on the hardest difficult suffer from noticeable A.I. issues, so if this one's to be played at all it should be online. After numerous hours of play some weapon balance issues will become apparent, especially with the Vibro Blade during close range battles. Vehicles are included, but they're generally useless as the stages are so small. A larger variety of game modes more interesting maps would have helped out, but ultimately WarPath does little too differentiate itself from the rest of the shooters out there. The upgradeable weapons are a good feature, but nothing that'll hold players' interest beyond a few hours.
GameStar (Germany) (Feb 28, 2007)
Abgesehen von der lausigen Fahrzeugsteuerung macht Warpath eigentlich nichts richtig falsch. Das Problem ist nur, dass die Konkurrenz, allen voran Unreal Tournament 2004, vor Zeiten alles schon einmal wesentlich besser gemacht hat. Dagegen wirkt Warpath zu uninspiriert, zu durchschnittlich und zu lustlos hingeklatscht. Einzig die Idee mit den Waffen-Upgrades sticht heraus. Die alleine ist es aber nicht wert, für dieses Spiel sein wertvolles Geld auszugeben, zumal das große Vorbild inzwischen nur noch die Hälfte kostet. Für Actionfans heißt es daher weiter: Warten auf UT 3.

Warpath is a budget game that doesn't look too bad, but with unconvincing gameplay. Maybe it could interest you for some hours, but this probably isn't a game you want to buy.

In Sachen Story wäre man hingegen theoretisch in der Lage gewesen, sich von der Konkurrenz abzuheben. Aber selbst in dem Punkt enttäuscht das Spiel komplett. Die in die Kampagne gesteckte Arbeit hätte man lieber in den Onlinepart investieren sollen. Vielleicht wären dann ein paar mehr Spieler auf der Servern zu finden. Sehr schade. Ich wünsche Digital Extremes wirklich, dass sie mit ihrem aktuellen Projekt Dark Sector wieder zu altem Glanz zurückfinden. WarPath kann man hingegen getrost aus dem Gedächtnis verdrängen.
GotNext (Jul 29, 2006)
But with nothing new to offer, lousy single-player, and virtually no one to play against, there's not much really being offered here at all. Admittedly the multiplayer-focused FPS has been a declining sub-genre as first-person storytelling has taken great strides in recent years. But even when compared with aging games like Unreal Tournament 2004, there's not much incentive to choose Warpath. Ultimately I would rather play an ambitious game that only half succeeds than one than generic one which hopes only not to stumble. But for those craving something new that isn't quite, this is still at least a solid product. If some people actually start playing, there could be hope for it yet.

Ahmet might have enjoyed himself, but I found Warpath a waste of my time. I'm glad I didn't part with my cashola for what is a rehash of the games mentioned in the opening paragraph. With more players I'm sure it will hold up against the big boys of the run-and-gun multiplayer world, certainly looking better than most. But without the players to fill the rooms, Warpath is pretty much meaningless. Ahmet, wherever you are my love, I miss you. Although this is a bit unfair as the servers were empty.
AceGamez (2006)
Quite simply, WarPath is a mess. With terrible gameplay, bland graphics, forgettable sound, a whole host of technical issues, and a lifespan shorter than the manhood of a poorly equipped midget, there is little to savour from this game. Some may find a bit of life in the online mode, but with very few players online as I write and with such inferior gameplay to most other shooters around, there really is no saving grace for WarPath. This game is less WarPath, more WarPathetic.

Warpath est un très petit FPS multijoueur. Il montre ses limitations rapidement, quel que soit le domaine. Inintéressant en solo, il ne parvient pas plus à convaincre sur internet. On lui reprochera notamment son manque de variété, son armement déséquilibré et ses niveaux trop semblables. A éviter.

Warpath est le tout nouveau FPS sorti des usines de Digital Extremes. Pour les glandeurs du fond, ceux qui ont la marque du radiateur imprimée sur la joue, sachez que Digital Extremes est entre autres petites choses l’instigateur (avec Epic Games) du renouveau de la série Unreal, avec notamment la création des fantastiques Unreal Tournament 2003 et Unreal Tournament 2004. Plus récemment et de sinistre mémoire, le développeur a commis en 2005 le pitoyable Pariah, qui, au regard des chiffres de vente, a plutôt bien porté son nom. Après plus d’un an de silence et de multiples retards, voici donc le test de Warpath, un titre qui, nous allons le voir, a plus sa place sous un Caterpillar que dans votre ludothèque.
