Dogfighting. What a beautiful game genre, but what an ugly attempt on the iPhone. With the exclusion of F.A.S.T., all of Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.'s predecessors have been poorly executed with little or no true inspiration. But that's all about to fall apart with the release of Gameloft's own version of dogfighting, complete with full voiceovers and missile command.
With so many disappointments such as Ace Combat Xi, it's a good feeling to see one company finally step up. While there are still some minor problems with H.A.W.X., the overall game is a blast to play, and many will find the story mode quite enjoyable. Multiplayer seems to become secondary with a game of this level.
