Ubisoft Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X


Just recently I played the Ubisoft's game "Tom Clacy's : H.A.W.X" , I'm not posting here to review this game in details but I would like to share this experience with you.
This game is simple and suitable for those whom have not more than few hours a week to spend playing; doesn't require tough hardware specs and it's operable on any laptop (I'm talking about normal laptops).
It's easy to launch, start, select mission, aircraft and weaponry then start from sky; Thus, you don't need to waste hours in adjusting and setting config.


"Print Screen" is not active when playing games, so I had to search for ready shots, but unfortunately, not all cockpits are available on web, taking into consideration the flyable aircraft are:
- YF-12A
- YF-17 Cobra
- A-10A Thunderbolt II
- A-6A Intruder
- A-7B Corsair II
- AV-8B Harrier II
- EA-6B Prowler
- EF-111A Raven
- Eurofighter Typhoon
- F-117 Nighthawk
- F-14A Tomcat
- F-14B Bombcat
- F-15 Active
- F-15C Eagle
- F-16A Fighting Falcon
- F-2
- F-20 Tigershark
- F-22 Raptor
- F-4G Advanced WildWeasel
- F-5A Freedom Fighter
- F-5E Tiger II
- F-35 JSF
- FA-18 RC
- FA-18E Super Hornet
- Mirage 2000C
- Mirage 5
- Mirage F-1
- Mirage IV P
- Mig-21 Fishbed
- Mig-25 Foxbat (but actually they show the Mig-31)
- Mig-29 Fulcrum
- Mig-33 Super Fulcrum
- Rafale C
- Su-25 Frogfoot
- Su-27 Flanker


Unfortunately, you can't fly Mig-23, Mig-15/17, Tornado, Su-24, Su-34...


Weapon selection is very poor, not realistic, but as I said above...seems it will satisfy whom have work stress and want to fire some missiles and drop some bombs...


Camera can be set as external and as HUD, but for sure you will prefer to set it from cockpit.
Just one last comment, you may need a simple game gear, I got the Logitec Extreme 3D Pro, and it's realy fantastic and more than enough for this game.

  1. Hey R.S

    It's a funny and playable game, I also happen to have the sequel, which is not much different, rather than better graphics..
    But more important than all said is that the game is pure arcade, which means there's very poor imitation of simulations.

    Like yous said, if you like to watch the pretty planes, drop bombs and shoot rockets than you'll be pleased. But for all of you who prefer a bit of realism, this is way off..

    I'm using a joy pad which simplifies the flying...
    Also too much planes I like is missing, the second part includes mig-23 but does not have mig-21...
    Not to mention all the classics..

    Regarding the flying view, try to disable the assistance mode off, you'll find it more enjoyable and nice...

    Best regards
