It is just like Hawx..if you ripped out its soul and set it adrift on a raft in the open ocean.

Summary: I could not be more dissappointed in this game. I love HAWX, the missions and the controls and everything about it were perfect. Hawx2 is like a bag of *&)holes left in the sun. Aside from changing and ruining the controls and game feel they ask you to fly a plane through a tunnel and blow up a nuke, then fly out the other side.
Summary: More realistic than Jane's. More planes to fly sooner in the game. Bottom line with this though, is XBOX flight sims are always going to be pretty arcade like, and this one is no different. If you're looking for a game to satisfy a craving for a PC-like air combat sim, there just aren't any out there for the consoles. This, and all the other console sims get boring real quick.
Summary: HAWX two does some things very well. The AI aircraft in the single player campaign are much smarter than in the first incarnation of the game. Dipping and diving and trying to lock on to enemy aircraft is the heart of HAWX two. Moreover the backdrop of deserts, rugged mountain peaks, and other locations are beautifully done.
Summary: Fantastic for all us would be sofa fighter pilots. Great for dads and kids as there is no blood and gore which most teen onwards xbox games seem to be, just high speed and high flying fun. You get an f16 to start with so it can't be bad huh? By the way, US ntsc format will work on UK xbox if you use HDMI connection.
Summary: It seems to be a pretty solid game, very "arcadey" though, which isn't a bad thing. The missions get a little repetitive after a while, but still, if you like jet fighters, this is a great game. Decent customization, though the online modes seem to be dead.
