Graphics: Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. is a beautiful game that runs really well. From above, the GeoEye system maps real satellite imagery onto the terrain in such a way, that is looks absolutely beautiful. Planes are modeled excellently, while lighting and shadows look fantastic. With its built-in benchmark, we can easily see this game becoming test for graphical hardware, especially ATI GPU’s due to its DX10.1 support.
Repetitive Gameplay: The first few levels of H.A.W.X. are kind of fun, but once you realize all you have to do it lock-on and let the missiles do the rest, the game pretty much loses its entire challenge.
Bland Multiplayer: It honestly feels like Ubisoft threw the multiplayer in at the last minute so they could add another listed feature to the box. Featuring only deathmatch and team deathmatch, where every game ends up with you just trying to out bank an opponent. Furthermore, the multiplayer is obviously bugged as it has a tendency to crash pretty inexplicably.
It Makes Unrealistic Games Look Realistic: My suspension of belief only goes so far, however you will never convince me that an airplane has a handbrake granting it the ability to turn 90 degrees on a dime. Also, the magic 100+ missile ammo magazines are laughable as is the infinite gun ammo. Turning off pilot assistance puts you in a horrible perspective that makes it infinitely more difficult to target enemies.
