  1.  Looks great but sadly handles poorly

    Posted: 

    I've been a massive fan of Ace Combat on the Xbox. I'm usually more of a proper flight sim player but I thought the level of realism alongside the more 'arcade' gameplay made it highly playable. I expected the same from Hawx...
    Being part of the Tom Clancy games, I was also expecting a little more realism as well as the stunning graphics I had seen on the trailer. I certainly got the graphics, it looks fantastic. Unfortunately, it was missing a huge chunk of realism, mostly when it comes to the aircraft handling. In fact, I find this one nearly unplayable as the aircraft will not perform how I expect them to - something Ace Combat had but Hawx has lost.
    If you are not a big flight sim player or want an arcade-type experience, this will be a great purchase. Swanky graphics and simple controls. However, if you are a seasoned flight sim. player, you may be disappointed by the aircraft handling.
