Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. - Review

 

Throw the Tom Clancy franchise at a neglected genre and you have the makings of a game that deserves your attention. Give that game a terrible name and clunky cover art, and some might wonder whether it is really worth a look after all. H.A.W.X....

The planes generally handle well, although there is a decent amount of handholding that goes along for the first quarter of the campaign. The early portion of the game leaves Flight Assistance on. In this mode, the camera is directly behind the plane...

You just cannot seem to get away from Tom Clancy these days, he first jumped into the first person shooter genre, then hopped on over to some stealth action, before dabbling in some real time strategy and has now decided it is time to freshen up the...

I expected this to be a rather dull and repetitive flight simulation but nothing could be further from the truth. It has a superb arcade feel to it, whilst at the same time lets you also play it realistically should you so desire. The assistance OFF...

Top flight shooter distills Top Gun's kinetic battles and GRAW's tactical action

Multi-layered missions ; Well-placed checkpoints ; Suitable for novices or veterans

Third-person view may be disorienting ; Getting blown to bits while admiring the scenery ; Having a risky move not pay off

GC 2008: Tom Clancy's HAWX Preview

 

There is definitely the Tom Clancy tactical aspect in the title which ranges from how you go about your objectives to what order you take them down in, and this sort of tactical aspect is a necessity if HAWX is going to be a decent tribute to the Tom...

The combat is ridiculously simple allowing you to change weapons with one button and fire with the other. In order to lock on to a target, you simply need to be close enough to them and keep them relatively close to your cross hair for a few seconds...

Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.- Xbox 360

 

Likewise, the missions follow the same over-the-top, thrills-and-spills approach. Rather than giving you primary and secondary objectives and the freedom to pursue them as you see fit, the action is largely scripted and designed to test a certain...

Ultimately though, the fact the 360 isn’t short of plane games nowadays (with another wave now on the radar) does pose a bit of a problem – and truth be told, anyone in the market for an enjoyable flight game would be best advised to look at something...

Tom Clancy's HAWX review

 

It's hardly Tom Clancy's fault, indeed it's not the fault of Microsoft, Sony, or anyone else. It's common knowledge that games come and go with the passing of the years – look how poorly received the Watchmen game was, highlighting that shoddy...

One of the weakest Clancy games to date, although not because it’s broken in any way, it's just so pedestrian it never grabs the gamer like most of the other titles in this stable.

Tom Clancy's HAWX

 

This arcade-style aerial-combat game has plenty to offer those flying solo, but it doesn't offer much in the way of competitive multiplayer content.

Realistic planes and environments ; Great, action-packed dogfighting ; Believable audio really enhances the experience

Limited multiplayer modes ; Ground textures look ugly up close ; Planes all handle similarly ; Friendly AI isn't great

Tom Clancy's HAWX

 

Tom Clancy's HAWX changes up the flight combat formula in a couple of interesting ways, but at its core it's a little too basic to hold your attention.

Ubisoft knocks the aces off the top spot...

With some really innovative gameplay, exciting missions, fantastic set pieces, and the overall lack of competition, H.A.W.X. is the best game in the aerial combat  genre.

Product Specifications

E.R.S. is in-game technology that helps turn novice aviators into elite pilots of the future. The Enhanced Reality System is the core of the HAWX flight experience: aircraft interception trajectories, incoming missile detection, anti-crash system, damage assessment, tactical map, and weapons trajectory control. E.R.S. also allows players to issue orders to their squadron and other units, making this system as iconic to HAWX as the Cross-Com system is to Tom Clancy
