To say the least Tom Clancy's Hawx2 is a outstanding addition to the Hawx series. This time the biggest difference that you will notice is the ability to take off, land the aircraft, and a neat refuelling in mid air exercise. The games graphics have also been tweaked to have a vivid realism to it while taking off or in close proximity. The title would be awesome for anyone who is into aircrafts simulations, the game has mild violence and hardly any profanity in the title.
You play as multiple pilots of who are the best of the best in dog-fighting aviations. You will fly in f-16s, f-22s, J-23, A-10, Migs, and many other aircrafts, both foreign and American. You assume the role of an aviation pilot in many countries, not playing one stand alone role, but as numerous pilots you are to do many classified operations, both air-to-ground and Air-to-air objectives. Sometimes leading attacks on foreign invaders and other times defending grounds from invaders.
The graphics have also been tweaked quite beautifully, as you take off you can look around and watch military life performing duties, in pristine graphics. The Geomap that is used in Hawx2 has been tweaked and looks a lot better. Geomap is satellite imagery that has been pre rendered and detailed from actual locations. So when you are flying around in Hawx2 you are actually flying in actual locations -- Well locations that were photographed via satellite.
Control configurations are still the same in Hawx2, with compatibility for the joystick and thruster controller. The ability to land and take off, enables extra set of controls during landing, taking off, and refuelling .
The only things that could have been better was landing and taking off, there is no use of flaps -- Flaps are used to take off and land, also contributes aircraft pitching. It would be cool if I could do emergency landings, not only landing in fixed areas. I should be able to land anywhere - I work for Hawx.. Yea! .. A free roam would be nice.

This game is high flying, action packed fun. The game opens you up to a variety of different nations air forces. I highly recommend this game to anyone who likes games that get your heart rate going. I guarentee it. The only problem I had was controling the planes. It was hard at first, but then I caught on.

This is one of the best flight simulators i have played in a very long time. I dont know why people give it a bad review. It has its parts that make you wanna pull out your hair but that is the point of video games. To make you work through challenges. The last level is just ridiculous but it was fun when i finally got through it. I like the features such as landing and taking off and controlling UAVs and AC-130s. This is definitely a buy for me but if your not sure just rent it first. What do u have to lose?
