Summary: After playing ace combat for years then when it became x-box 360 only, i was starving for some air combat,I had purchaced an PS3 and when i found out it wasnt rewind compatable i was really dissapointed, I missed my ace combat. So i bought a copy of hawx and when you compare it to ace combat it doesnt even hold a candle to it, all i can say is that i hope hawx 2 is better!!
Summary: So my title really sums it up for me. I come from playing flight sims on the PC for 15 years. I appreciate a little arcade action (Blazing Angels II is big fun) but I like my realism. The assistance ON mode in HAWKX feels odd. You can roll the plane in any way and it doesn't turn. The yaw control is necessary, but hard to use in combination with pitch, brake, throttle, targeting, and weapons. So what's assistance OFF like?
Summary: If you're expecting to fly a plane with a 1st-person view (ie sitting in cockpit) you're out of luck. All the dogfighting forces you to use 'advanced mode' and that's 3rd-person only. There's no way to switch views, and the controls go all stupid too. I STRONGLY recommend against buying.
Waited so long for something good and this is what we got?

Summary: I hate to be a debbie downer, but I was really unsatisfied with this game. Its the same ole thing, mission after mission - the only thing that changes is the landscape. If I were smart enough to be a game developer, I would have a flight game that includes take off and landings, take off and landing from an air craft carrier; take off and landing with a harrier jumpjet; airstrikes that get called in from ground personnel; joint strikes with helicopter gunships.
Summary: I bought this expecting it to be interactive in everyway being a flight sim, but from the start the game is boring and repetative, there is no landing, takeoff etc just the same thing of flying and shooting ground or air targets over and over again, if its an arcade fly/shoot game your after great but if not save your money for the new medal of honour or black ops
Summary: Terrible buy!!!! Upon seeing the advert i was under the impression i would be a squadron leader also operating ground troops from the ait while we took over different areas. how wrong i was! the game is very basic with not a lot to do.. all aircraft look different but handle the same and have just about the same variation of weapons with different names. the missins become very repetitive and therefore after a few you do get really bored.
Conclusion: For each mission you get a ton of weapons mucgh greater than the chosen aircraft can carry (eg: an F4 with 100 odd AA). Flight dynamics are also far from true. Going up vertical experiences zero drop in speed. No G force effect.
