Name of Game: Tom Clancy's HAWX
Release Date: 3/5/2009
Genre: Action, Aviation
Player: 1 Player
Overall Rating: 10
Platforms: Xbox 360, PS3 and PC
I would consider this game more of an action game rather than a sim because you only do half the things you would do in a regular flight sim. Sure you fly and fight, but the game lacks take-offs and landings.
You never fly in the same place or same environment twice. There are so many different planes that a plane is available to fit everyone's flying/fighting style.
You're probably asking why I would buy this game... I would buy this game because it has excellent replay value and I'm a military plane fanatic. I also like the tac-map option and how you can be behind the plane and pull out of this world moves with it.
All in all, Tom Clancy's HAWX will take you about 20-25 hours to complete plus countless hours online.
Also the graphics were done very nicely along with the various planes extremely smooth controls.
Note: This review was based on the Xbox 360 version
