IGN: H.A.W.X. 2 Review

H.A.W.X. 2 is a difficult game to assign a score to, because in effect, it's a pair of experiences. If you're a controller-packing player looking for a fun action game, H.A.W.X. 2 is coming out at the worst possible time, as there are far more interesting action titles on the way. But, if you're into flying games enough to own a flight stick peripheral, then you just might owe it to yourself to check out H.A.W.X. 2's bizarre combination of arcade combat with sim elements.

if the first one sucked ass, why make a sequel?

TheIneffableBob2870d ago

Since it's a sequel, people might think "Oh! Since this is a sequel, the first one must've been pretty good!" :P

mittwaffen2870d ago

And its going to cost them.


Arnon2870d ago

I agree with you but... they said the same thing about Killzone, and it turns out the sequel was miles better. I don't really look at review scores.

number472870d ago

Its performance killed it, because it was maxing out the PS2's hardware.

HAWX has sucked ass as a product and a concept.

Crazyglues2870d ago (Edited 2870d ago )

I don't think it can be said any better then that.... Bubbles for you!

Hell bubbles for everyone in this post.. all good points
(it's a shame that Ubisoft has no idea how to make a good plane game)

-they might want to start by making it look more like the trailer -because if it actually looked like that then maybe I would have bought it -


EvilBlackCat2870d ago (Edited 2870d ago )

all you have to do is play the demo

THE GAME SUCK is not even a good arcade game

i prefer ACE COMBAT 6 and for me Ace Combat 6 SUCK!

Ubisoft INSTEAD OF JOINING FORCES WITH TAITO ON AN OVER G sequel they just decided to do something worst than ACE COMBAT 6

OVER G destroy both on multiplayer gameplay PERIOD

What part of WE DONT WANT ARCADE AIR COMBAT GAMES they dont understand? (Ubisoft, NAMCO BANDAI and the rest)

moneygun22870d ago

english broken, cause YOU GOT CAPS ON BUT SENSE YOU MAKE NONE!

BattleAxe2870d ago

I'm not sure why Ubisoft keeps focusing on their junk IPs. Make a new Rainbow Six already!

kaveti66162870d ago

Because then people would complain that ubisoft is milking their successful IPs.

MiamiACR2869d ago

Killzone sucked, Killzone 2 didn't. Sequels are meant to be better in as many ways as possible then the first, killzone proved it, H.A.W.X. 2 didn't.

I knew after the I played the demo it would get butcherd by reviewers

the-show-stopper2870d ago

thats wat u get for not making endwar 2

Philaroni2870d ago

Only good game like this is Ace Combat, the new one looks sick as hell. They are the only ones that are keeping flying games alive.

Gilliand2870d ago

Did you hear about the helicopters.

The ace combat series was one of the few games that I absolutely loved in my childhood. I was completely devastated to hear AC6 went to 360 a couple months after I got the ps3.

Philaroni2870d ago

Ya I saw them. It also has this close in combat system which look sick. The Graphics are great as well. And same. AC is not and never will be a Xbox game. I remember playing AC since the PS1 days when it was called Air Combat.

Azeris2870d ago

Shame I like the first game, I think it's great to play and good to look at. They're Idiots releasing a rushed sequel like this.
