Hawx is a fairly easy game (especially if you use ERS, not recommended unless you're in a total jam makes the game too easy) but it's still alot of fun and does not require a lot of time to devote to it. I really enjoyed hawx and recommend it especially to gamers who like to play in quick spurts due to time constraints.
Campaign mode integrates very nicely from single player to coop mode. All Xp and Challenges are for both story mode and versus mode, giving story mode some replay ability. The planes are fairly similar in each class with distinct advantages to using each type. Versus mode is very fun and possibly the best part of this game

I'm a pilot, and I have played tons of flight simulators. I have played both all of Microsoft's combat flight simulators and regular airline simulators. I have also played ace combat 6 and many other aviation games. As far as game play, this game dominates all the others in its genre. Each aircraft has its own sound and is very realistic. When you break the sound barrier, it makes the cracking noise "sonic boom" and a white cloud of vapor appears around the plane for a few seconds. For this game to have that, makes it super realistic. This game also has a great action packed story which keeps you hooked, the characters are great and make funny remarks sometimes, the array of airplanes is awesome and to be able to have a custom paint job on them is sick. You increase in rank with your kills + experience points and unlock new planes. I am playing on elite with expert controls and that is as real as it gets. Now in real life you may not carry 70 missiles but you need that many to make this game fun. Other than that it is superbly realistic in every way. From explosions, sound, to detail of the terrain its an A +. I got the flight stick with this game and it is just incredible. A must buy for any pilot. The best flight combat simulator ever made, period.
