    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.

    After the PS3 and 360 version, H.A.W.X. 2 comes to Nintendo Wii, but with its repetitive gameplay and some technical problems, it is an unsatisfying version of this Ubi's brand.

    Low difficulty setting, way too simple objectives and a shallow plot: H.A.W.X. 2 looks like aimed at a younger user base, which is quite in contrast with the basic concept of a Tom Clancy's game. It's not a bad rail-shooter overall but most of the features developed by Ubisoft do not save this game from mediocrity.

    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.

    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.

    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.
  9. A shadow of its siblings on other platforms. [Christmas 2010, p.87]

    Poor controls and dumb enemies ground this arcade air combat game, making it more chicken than bird of prey.

    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?!?
