GameBlurb: H.A.W.X. 2 Preview

GameBlurb writes, "Aerial combat and dog fighting isn’t really something I do so often when it comes to video games, but I’ve always wanted to gain a sense of speed and thrill that was brought with fighting in the skies. H.A.W.X. 2 tries to give you that opportunity but does the demo even give you a successful takeoff?"

I agree with the frustration level the demo imposed. I bet it would be better suited with a flight stick on the pc. But overall I think I will pass on this one.

I plan to get it, I like flying games and we just don't get that many now days. The new Ace Combat looks sick but that is coming out in 2011. That and this game is $50 not the full $60 most are.

I wasn't aware that the game was going to be launched at a discount. Any word if that price is global?

Seems to me that the "reviewer" has a thing against anything that requires a little patience and dexterity. I wasn't completely thrilled with the original H.A.W.X. game but found this demo to be fairly enjoyable. The enemy AI is a lot smarter that what I was accustomed to in the last Ace Combat game I played (AC5), and the refueling minigame was far more challenging, as opposed to the "just fly within proximity of the fuel plane and you automatically latch on" mechanic. I like games such as this and the Ace Combat series (even though I would love to see a full fledged flight sim like Lock On Platinum hit consoles), and this is a very welcomed alternative to the cliché shooters that's flooding the console market presently.

The HAWX series is very pretty much the Project Gotham Racing of the flight world. Not quite a simulator, not quite arcade controls. I have a feeling anyone that spends sometime with the control scheme will find the game a good mix of fun and challenge.

Who needs another flight simulator? Microsoft's is soo F*@$ing boring

I liked Blazin Angels but really haven't played any flying games since

The reviews for the first game was absolutely mediocre. Was there any potential in the franchise?
