Overall H.A.W.X is a very enjoyable experience. It certainly delivers the thrills and spills of modern air combat, however the key thing to remember that this is an arcade experience not a simulation. The game play is firmly set in an arcade style, yet the missions feel much more realistic than seen in other aerial combat games on consoles. But that is hardly a complaint is it? After all, the mix between realism and arcade has been done so well that unless you really want to be fussy you won't notice it at all.
