This game was not nearly as good as the first one in the series by far. It reminded me of what namco tried to do with the ace combat assault horizon and dumb it down to get new players into the series. Im glad i rented this through gamefly and didn't buy it.
Unfortunately, the update that had to be installed for the game to run blocked at 17% (went up to 19% once out of 4 attempts which were all more than an hour of waiting on high-speed ethernet connection). A disclaimer should be put in bold on the overview for this title in GF. I read that problem on several forums and I don't like to find that after receiving a game when we all know we don't get our games very fast with GF (faster than before but it is not the equivalent company that sends DVDs by mail... which will have games soon... we cannot write the name of the company here!). I don't have to research issues to play a PS3 game, if I wanted that I would still be playing games on PCs!!

HAWX 2 would have been a good game if it was released it 1999. The graphics are terrible (the plane models do look ok), the missions are boring, and worst of all, there is NO sense of speed. When taking off, the game looked no different while I was increasing speed, and when I got in the air, the afterburners felt useless. You fly along from one tedious mission to the next, hoping that the game gets better. Unfortunately, it doesn't. The first HAWX game was pretty good, a surprise really. This game was an embarrassment to good Tom Clancy games like Ghost Recon and Splinter Cell. If you're REALLY in the mood for a flying game, try HAWX 1 and save yourself the shipping time to and from your house.
