    I gotta tell you, as a PS3 fan i feel betrayed by the fact that ace combat left us completely, why not do both platforms? anyway i digress...i was really looking forward to this game, because i enjoy flight sims, but one thing i'm immediately turned off by is the "external view camera" that activates once you turn off computer assistance....fuggin lame...i don't want to play I gotta tell you, as a PS3 fan i feel betrayed by the fact that ace combat left us completely, why not do both platforms? anyway i digress...i was really looking forward to this game, because i enjoy flight sims, but one thing i'm immediately turned off by is the "external view camera" that activates once you turn off computer assistance....fuggin lame...i don't want to play with my own skills in a crappy "replay-like" camera view. Let me maintain the same camera view i once had and allow me to maneuver better from that point of view as an option too. Expand

    Some missions are hectic enough to get the adrenaline pumping. New threats emerge when you think you can't handle any more. The thrill makes it a lot of fun. The Assistance OFF mode, which take a far 3rd person view of the plane, takes a bit getting used to, but it's a pretty neat way to dogfight.

    From above, the graphics are very impressive, but HAWX always feels like it has something missing when you're playing it. It has an immediate wow factor but eventually becomes stale and repetitive. HAWX is a good game, but not one you would splash all of the money in your wallet on

  1. H.A.W.X. is the best flight game so far this generation, and a worthy addition to the best in the Clancy stable.
  2. 68
    The mission design is lacking, the combat is unimaginative, and the multiplayer is shallow. Still, there are plenty who will be able to enjoy soaring 40,000 feet above the earth destroying dozens of enemy planes. All the while belting out lines of Danger Zone. That’s not weird, is it?
  3. H.A.W.X feels more like a Top Gun movie than Ace Combat ever did. It mixes in some refreshing new innovations that keep the missions exciting, and the appeal of that four player online co-op mode simply cannot be denied. If you’re an Ace Combat diehard, we recommend deviating from your usual flight pattern to acquire this target. Alternatively, if you’ve been ground-based gamer all these years and you’re looking for an accessible game that looks and plays great, we recommend you grab a copy of H.A.W.X and buzz the counter at your local game store.
