    Look beyond the shoddy exterior and there's a surprisingly rich and varied arcade flyer. [Christmas 2010, p.58]

    This is a decent game which lacks some improvements, specially more game modes and multiplayer options.

    A missed opportunity. Some issues in the gameplay, as well as seriously bad graphics, completely spoil the experience.

    HAWX 2 feels like it was sugar-coated and mass-produced for a crowd on the Wii that was too young the play the "real" version. If this is the sort of treatment planned for future Clancy games, I would humbly suggest that the publishers reconsider their options.

    There's no need in playing Hawx 2. All that you expect to find a an arcade flight game simply doesn't exist in the last Ubisoft production.

    From the awful presentation to the poorly implemented secondary modes (and I didn't even mention the cutscenes that are static images drawn in what looks like Photoshop in about 5 minutes), HAWX 2 for Wii has a solid target-lock on the bargain bin.

    Hobbled by poor design and beset with technical issues. The game's selling point is the chance to fly planes, and far too often you don't. Is it so much to ask that a flight game focus on giving you full control of an aircraft?

    Don't know about the HD versions (and don't care really) but the Wii version is a pretty solid arcade offering.
    It's addictive (in a Space Invaders way - wave after wave of enemies), graphics are not that bad, music/effects are OK (killer menu track) and I have no problem with the "static" cut-scenes. (story is not the point here anyways)
    I wonder if IGN played the same game. On-rails arcade shooter...really?!?
