"Though I fly through the Valley of Death, I shall fear no evil. For I am at 80,000-feet and climbing." - SR-71 USAF base (Kadena, Japan)

The setting is 2012. As the era of the nation-state draws quickly to a close, the rules of warfare evolve even more rapidly. More and more nations become increasingly dependent on Private Military Companies (PMCs) - elite mercenaries with a lax view of the law. The Reykjavik Accords further legitimise their existence by authorising their right to serve in every aspect of military operations. There goes the neighbourhood...

Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. is the next-gen console game primed to revolutionise the way we think about combat in the sky. Cutting-edge technology, devastating firepower, and intense dogfights award this new title a deserving place in the prestigious Tom Clancy Franchise.

Buy Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. from Play.com and receive a free exclusive H.A.W.X. faceplate (see image below). Faceplates will be shipped with the game.

Enhanced Reality System (E.R.S): E.R.S. is in-game technology that helps turn novice aviators into elite pilots of the future. The Enhanced Reality System is the backbone of your flight experience: radars and incoming missile detection, damage control system, tactical map and information relay, and weapons trajectory control. E.R.S. also allows you to issue orders to your squadron, making this system as iconic to Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. as the Cross-Com system is to Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter!

    Dual Gameplay: Want to ease into your flight missions and gain a level of comfort? Turn on the assistance mode and take full advantage of your E.R.S. Need to evade your enemy and execute advanced dog-fighting moves? Switch off the assistance mode and feel the adrenalin rushing through your veins as you play in stunning 3rd person views.

      Innovation in Multiplayer: For the first time ever in the Air Combat genre, experience the entire solo campaign in four-player 'jump in' coop mode. In PVP mode, challenge your friends in intense dog-fighting sessions and see who the top gun is.

        Realism and Authenticity: Take the throttle of over sixty of the world's most famous aircrafts. Dogfight over the most realistic and modern landscapes as the elite pilot of tomorrow.

         Not what i was hoping.

        This is virtually ace combat again with better graphics and a ranking system. Story line is boring and simple and having to switch between assistance on and off is annoying. Overall i was looking forward to this but was truly disappointed.

        I bought this today I haven't got off it so far. The graphics are great especially when you go low. The cobat is good with a variety of different views depending on what you like. The gameplay is slightly short I think theres about 19-20 missions and that it but there needs to be more. The online facility is awesome and you earn experience points just like the Call of Duty games. Definate buy!!

         HAWX vs Ace Combat

        Ive played the demo to death both offline and multiplayer.

        I am a big flight sim fan I loved ace Combat to death completed most of the downloadable content

        HaWX this is a good game for beginners especially with the ERS which personally I cant stand as it takes the fun out of it im hoping theres an option in game to turn it off because it bugged the living hell out of me, who wants to follow a set path when if you just slm the brakes on slide and bam lock on they die

        I dont really like the third person view its too difficult to work out where you are to the relation of your target im hoping they improve this slightly in game

        I did like the demo apart from those issues it looks pretty and if you can master jumping in and out of 1st and 3rd person view to dodge missiles and slidey turns then your master the game in no time, i can see this game being reduced in price so i would suggest buying ace comat skys of liberation for the time being or even try the demo of ace combat the one thing i hate about both of these games is that they will most likely be relitivly short lived i still play ace combat from time to time for the fun of it but i dont think i can see myself playing this.

        i do like the voice commands although very limited in what you can do

        I am a fan of the tom clancy series but i do feel there comes a point for any brand that someone sticks a name on it and your buy it no matter what it is or how good or how bad it is end war was rubbish

         one of clancys best yet

        I play tom clancy games a lot (mostly rainbow six and splinter cell) and this is one of the best yet. Although i have only got the demo off xbox live its amazing and the graphics are amazing when flying at high altitude. A definite must buy.

         Poor value for money !

        This is a very lazy effort by the developers, they seem to have spent far more time and money on the marketing than they have on the game. The plot is highly implausible even by video game standards and the missions soon get very dull and repetitive. Obviously a flight sim is a difficult game to tag a story onto but if ace combat and blazing angels can do it so can they!
        The only redeeming feature is the terrain graphics but your several thousand feet above it and travelling at mach 2 most of the time.
