Excerpt: Name: Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. Genre: Flight Action Platform: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC (Reviewed on PlayStation 3) It’s hard to review H.A.W.X. without comparing it to Ace Combat 6 , the only other flight action game with a modern setting available for current gen systems. There are many similarities between the two releases; from the missions, to the jets, and even the controls.
Excerpt: After tackling squad-based third-person combat in Ghost Recon, stealth action in Splinter Cell, and strategy in EndWar, Ubisoft's Tom Clancy brand takes to the skies in HAWX (High Altitude Warfare--Experimental). The game features intense dogfights, gorgeous scenery and planes, and an instantly accessible, arcade-style air combat experience.
Pros: Realistic planes and environments, Great, action-packed dogfighting, Believable audio really enhances the experience
Cons: Limited multiplayer modes, Ground textures look ugly up close, Planes all handle similarly, Friendly AI isn't great
