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 lines of both sides as this shift reveals high-stakes arms threats and a terrifying glimpse of the future.
HAWX: The Elite, High Altitude Warfare eXperimental Squadron
You'll begin the game as former U.S. Air Force Pilot David Crinshaw, assigned to provide air support for the well-known Ghost Recon team. You and your fellow HAWX pilots are some of the most highly-trained specialists in the world. Based out of Langley Air Force Base in Virginia, you're tasked with everything from testing secret and experimental aircraft weapon systems to carrying out combat and recon missions, training other top pilots, and attempting to capture enemy technologies.
With the rise of the PMCs, your unique skills in higher demand than ever before. And with 49 playable planes available in game, plus additional planes available to some pilots through pre-order bonuses or VIP memberships, there's no shortage of sleek, fast, deadly aircraft at your disposal as you put your skills to use.
An Iconic, Enhanced Reality System to Help You Deliver Results
When you're in the midst of a firefight, E.R.S. in-game technology can help anyone survive, if you know how to take advantage of it. Featuring incoming missile detection, an anti-crash system, damage assessment, a tactical map, and weapons trajectory control, E.R.S. even allows you to issue orders to your squadron and other units, much like the iconic Cross-Com system in other Tom Clancy games. When you're getting started, you can ease into the rigors of flight and gain confidence by using a special assistance mode that offers support through the E.R.S. This mode can be switched off at any time, deactivating safety features and allowing you to perform advanced maneuvers.
Cutting-Edge Realism and Innovative Multi-Player Modes
Whether you're in a classic F15 Fighting Falcon or a new-generation Gripen, the controls and flight graphics are designed to keep you on your toes. And the game's photo-realistic environments have been created using detailed satellite data. When you pull back on the throttle to jet all over the world, you'll experience this authentic world from a variety of viewpoints.
Game play options aren't limited either, with the campaign featuring solo and multiplayer options with seamless jump in/jump out functionality, and a PVP mode where players can challenge each other to dog-fights for bragging rights, earning experience points and cash, and unlocking additional weapons.

Graphics: This game looks phenomenal. I have a 56" 1080P LCD and my jaw is constantly dropping. You will be flying over a variety of terrains and locations. Different times of day will skew color palettes, weather can affect visibility with clouds, and targets can be obscured by smoke. The terrain is incredibly detailed and looks wonderful even at close range...after you have unwittingly crashed your jet into it. Aircraft and missile contrails have that "puffy" look to them and flying into the sun is a great way to blind yourself.
Flight Mechanics: As I mentioned above, this is not a combat simulator. Hard banks and climbs do not kill speed. Depending on your difficulty setting your aircraft will take a number of direct missile hits. While this does take away from the realism factor (something Clancy games have been known for) it does make for a fun game. Even rookie pilots will quickly be flying low level and diving into "bandit" infested dog-fights. After several "training" missions which are used to introduce the player to the different aspects of the game (defend, escort, bombing, weapon types, etc) the game introduces the "Limit OFF" system (or OFF) in which the game is played from a zoomed out third person perspective. This mode allows players to "slide" their aircraft around, effectively making them much more agile (makes dodging missiles easier too). Opinions abound on this mode, but I found it a fun break from typical game play although lining up on a specific target can be more difficult.Read more ›
The wingmen, in my opinion, dont do much other than keep the com line busy, shooting down targets on their own time. It's decent AI but nothing to write home about. I have yet to play this in coop mode, though I do lok forward to that and should remedy any problems you have with the AI wingmen if you have a buddy along side you.
The experience system (which reminds me alot of Call of Duty's EXP system) gains you EXP for every kill and in game challenge you complete and works for both off and online modes giving you new ranks (up to lvl 40), weapon packs, and planes (the box says there are "over 50 liscensed planes").
Which brings me to the second(the first being coop for those of you who were paying attention) and last online feature: Team Deathmatch. I havent thoroughly explored it but clocked in a few matches to get a feel for it (wanted to unlock more planes and hone my flying skills before I really hit it). From the matches I played I have to say that this is one of the game's best features. Its fast paced, balanced, and alot of fun. The TD consists of 2 teams of 4 locked in a dogfight.Read more ›
As other reviews have noted, this is NOT a flight sim. There are weapons and missions in this game that don't happen in real life. But if you don't approach it looking for a complete 100% realistic experience, it's a lot of fun. Although, having said that, the realism is pretty close. It does give you a sense of what it's like to fly between buildings in a major metropolitan city at high speeds as well as dodge missiles coming at you from all angles.
The storyline of this game was supposed to follow the storyline of the most recent Tom Clancy game, Endwar. But it appears the developers decided to go a different direction. Gamers who have played previous Tom Clancy games will recognize CPT Mitchell from Ghost Recon leading a team of ground troops in the game. That little addition I really liked. I wanted to really make sure I helped out the Ghosts during each ground mission they were in because I'd previously played the Ghost Recon games.
Now, the bad, and the reason I rated this game only three stars. Ubisoft did not do a good job with the quality control on this at all. I experienced NUMEROUS freezing problems with this game, and they've been reported by a lot of gamers. It usually freezes on the title screen right when you press start to get into the game. I've also had it freeze on me during a mission briefing. Secondly, sometimes the audio during a mission briefing doesn't match the text, and I've also seen grammatical mistakes in the briefings, as well as minor things like spelling "defense" as "defence".Read more ›
