Great graphics, fun game but was too easy to complete

Tom Clancy's HAWX has some pretty impressive graphics and is fun to play. There are over 50 different aircraft to fly but most of them must me unlocked through career mode. There are also loads of different weapons to unlock and use including rockets, bombs, jamming devices, flares and more. Every plane has several load outs of weapons that you can install. There are two different modes to fly in. The first mode is called assistance mode and is typical of most dog fighting games where the camera is directly in back of the plane. The second mode is where you turn off the assistance mode and you have complete control of the plane. In this mode the camera is further back from the plane and diagonal. It's much more fun to play in this view but it makes it a lot more challenging.

Over 50 aircraft available and here are a few of them.
F-16 Fighting Falcon
F-22 Raptor
Eurofighter Typhoon
AV-8B Harrier II Plus
F-14A Tomcat
F-15 Strike Eagle
F-117 Nighthawk

The only bad thing that I can say about this game is that it's fairly easy to complete even on hard level and I wish it had been more challenging.

review by . August 12, 2009
The Tom Clancy series of games seems absolutely endless as they take on many forms from third person action shooters, stealth action, RTS and now the series has taken to the skies with H.A.W.X. This air combat title sees you take a different perspective during the Ghost Recon and End War time period as you are the air cover for the Ghost Recon team and also provide your air skills to defending American soil from a full blown military strike. The plot is quite silly and doesn't really make much sense …

Shifting International Dynamics: The Hazards of PMC Warfare
Set between Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 and Tom Clancy's EndWar from the popular Ghost series, Tom Clancy's HAWX takes place in a world where warfare is constantly evolving--a time when state-sponsored militaries lack the funds and personnel to modernize their forces and elite, private mercenary groups have grown in size and scope to pick up the slack.

The Reykjavik Accords of 2012 defined the role of these PMCs in combat, and they made it fully legal for these groups to purchase from the international armaments market, leading to a shift in the structure of global military power. Over time, you'll do battle on the front ...
