    If you're on the lookout for a great flight game, look no further. H.A.W.X. 2 is the best game of its kind and will keep you wannabe pilots busy for weeks to come.
  2. Fans of the first game will definitely find this arcade title very likable with the upgraded tweaks and enhancements to the gameplay.
  3. H.A.W.X. 2 corrects most of the flaws from the first game. The strong variety in missions and challenging dogfights make it the best game the genre has to offer up to now, but there is still room for improvement. Especially the lack of competitive multiplayer modes and the cumbersome lobbysystem fall short in comparison to the rest it offers. It doesn't take away from the fact that others will have a hard time to take back the throne.
  4. A decent flying game that gives you a fair amount of adrenaline when you take to the skies.
  5. A well-produced sequel to the original that manages to repeat many of its problems. It's still fun, but it's a shame Ubisoft Romania feels little inclination to challenge its established mould – doing so could have yielded a far more interesting end product.
  6. When you add all the features up, H.A.W.X. 2 is an improvement over the original, but there is still room to grow.
  7. H.A.W.X. 2 is one repetitive ride that offers little thrills outside of crashing.

    This game is fun as hell! I've been waiting for this since I finished H.A.W.X. 1. 2 lives up to my expectations and then some. I played through the single player and am now playing the multiplayer nightly. The matches are fierce. It's awesome to vie against fellow gamers in head to head fights. I'm having a good time and will keep playing online for a long time. Well worth the purchase. Expand

    tom clancy's hawx 2 is a very interesting flight sim which has kept me occupied since I bought it on Saturday. it has a very complex and thrilling storyline which is a real challenge on expert unlike it's predecessor. also the multiplayer isn't great but it is satisfactory. Expand

    i prob seem like a ubisoftaphile for liking this and ruse so much but these are the only kinds of games i think are worth buying. there are too many arcadey stupid games coming out these days that don't have the depth of serious, solid narratives connect to real wars or at least realistic wars. realistic war technology and realistic difficulty (you just jump in and control the plane it take some getting use to). this game is really fun and really challenging and will last you a long time, def check it out. and yes, it lives up to ace combat and if you're thinking about getting either one they're both good but different, check them both out. :) Expand

    Back in the day I used to be a flight sim junkie on PC. Then consoles got way cheaper thaqn PCs and Hawx2 was my first flight game in a long long long time. The aircraft graphics are good, but beyond that reality flies straight out of the window and vanishes into the distance. Hawx2 is to 'F16 Fighting Falcon' what Doom is to 'Operation Flashpoint'. Once I got used to my F18 carrying 96 (or whatever) missiles and got into the game its great fun for a five minute airborne deathmatch, but please can't someone release a real flightsim on console?
