Let me begin by saying i was a huge fan of the first H.A.W.X game, and was extremely excited about a second but it has been a complete letdown.
The story missions dont grip you or excite you to make you want to keep playing. the story line seems dull and boring. I completed the story missions in a day of playing, which is quickly for a game these days anyway.
The landing and take off is a nice new feature and does add to the game but its a shame the rest of the game is alot worse than the first.
The 'Arcade' mode which says takes some of the realism out to make the game more fun is riddiculous, i played one mission on arcade and was dissapointed, to make it 'more fun' they made it so you only have self guided rockets (impossible to hit a fighter plane with) and a cannon, you may aswell just have the cannon, and you could play the story version and just use your cannon if you wanted to do that.
Survival mode is very tedious just dog fighting constantly no added objectives to try to make it more fun just more and more planes which after 21 minutes and being on wave 7 gets boring.
I played this for one day and wouldnt bother again.
