Summary: I was looking for a good flight sim, this game is a little too much arcade feeling for me, not enough sim when you are flying, but it was fun going through the single player. playing multiplayer is not that great, it is hard to figure out, i had to use a 3rd party software to play multi, and there are not a whole lot of people playing. overall i would not buy this game if i knew what i knew now.
Summary: I thought this title was going to score high ace points for action-packed storylines and the like. I was off. I was bored within the first 20 minutes. This title holds your hands like a child in terms of the storyline. I rather replay the first H.A.W.X. title or even Ace Combat 3, 4, 5, and the Belkan War before I replay H.A.W.X. 2 once more.
Summary: I chose HAWX2 in the hopes of pushing my gaming PC to the limits and challenging head to head air combat. I was after advanced graphics, flight realism, a good variety of aircraft, and LAN play. This game was very obviously designed for and around a standard gaming platform ie, 360 or PS3 for people who know nothing about flight or flight sims. This is strictly an arcade game and if you can accept it for that then you should have a great time.
Summary: Been around flying games and actual fighter jets since early 80s' So its my thing, but this games story line is ok and I can see where it would relate to how the game plays out but 3 friendly jets against waves of 20 or more in a single mission and being armed with over 100 missles and 44 air to air missles, come on not too realistic.
Summary: I got a free copy of this when I purchased my motherboard here at Newegg. I'm glad I didn't pay money for this disk ............................................................ *Antec Twelve Hundred Full Tower *Intel Core i7 Extreme 940 *EVGA 132-BL-E758-TR LGA 1366 Intel X58 *GeForce GTX 285 1GB 512-bit *Kingston 6 gig *Western Digital 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache 2 (Dual Boot-Vista64Prem.
Pros: Very good graphics .....but (see cons)
Cons: This is the only thing the game (if you can call it that) has going for it. It takes more than good graphics to make a good game. After humm, 5-6 hours of play, not all at once, I gave it away!
