    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.

    Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X 2 is a great game. It's got different storylines that you're going to play trough with a lot of dogfights and new elements. The game is for the most part good, only the graphics aren't really great and it's kind of strange that you can die during a cut-scene.
  3. Hawx 2 is a much more complete game than the previous one. It doesn't have that futuristic gameplay mechanics of the first one, but it has more variety, with more classic gameplay but at the same time much better for the good mission design, full of twist and new situations.
  4. Ultimately, H.A.W.X. 2 is a must for Tom Clancy and flight-sim fans.
  5. Fans of the first game will definitely find this arcade title very likable with the upgraded tweaks and enhancements to the gameplay.
  6. 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.

    When everything is laid out in the debriefing, it's clear that H.A.W.X. 2 has made worthy improvements on an already solid concept. True, the adversarial multiplayer still won't ignite many people's afterburners, but almost everything else about the game has been tweaked as per player feedback. If you enjoyed the first title, you should definitely engage. If you were on the fence, we think there's enough new stuff here to make you bank over. [Oct 2010 p.72]
  8. The Die Hard of this genre will certainly be pleased with this entry in the series.
  9. This sequel won't disappoint anyone looking for a standard midair action game, but it's not going to change your perceptions of the genre.

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?

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. Full Review »
