Videogamer writes: "You know, we're still not sure about the title. It's supposed to stand for "High Altitude Warfare eXperimental squadron", but surely that should be spelled HAWXS? And besides, the way they're using the X is a cheat! Then again, if you had to use the E then the game would be called HAWEs... which sounds uncomfortably close to "Whores".
If we had our way, all games would have straightforward titles - and this one would be called Tom Clancy's Shooty Planes. Still, we rather doubt that Ubisoft appreciates our suggestion on this matter, and as things stand HAWX will do fine. As Shakespeare once wrote, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, and this is looking to be one of the prettier flowers of 2009. "
