The lights are on
Want to know what to expect from Ubisoft's upcoming combat flight simulator, H.A.W.X. 2? The game doesn't come out until September, but this 15 minutes of unedited gameplay footage should give you a good idea of how the game is shaping up. Watch as I spend half the video flying upside-down, narrowly avoiding mountains that I swear came out of nowhere, then fumble my way through the subtle eroticism of a mid-air refueling run. If that doesn't get you excited for H.A.W.X. 2, nothing will.
Please note that this footage was taken from a preview build of the game, and what you see may not be indicative of the final game's quality, or my true jet-piloting capabilities.

Ugh, I had to stop at the 3 minute mark. It's way to disorienting. I don't know how Air Combat fans can stand it.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have lunch coming back up my throat.
I had the first one it was ok. This is on my radar. I hope they bumped up the visuals.The planes in the first one looked good but when you take a look at the ground it's horrible(flying close). Then there's the new Ace Combat coming right around the corner. That looks like it will kick a lot of ass! If that video indicates that we'll be able to fly that close to buildings let alone blow them up, combined with the amazing visuals the series is known for, I might skip HAWX 2 and get Ace Combat which is finally back on Playstation.
hmmm..If I do get this ill have to pick up a X360 joystick
Looks ok i'll buy it but Ace Combat gots this beat by a mile
Well, I wanted this game before, but now i REALLY want it
Looks to me like you just reaaaaaaaally suck at playing the game...
As cool as this looks, I'm actually looking forward to Ace Combat more, the vid for that game looks sick.
And I question your flying skills Mr. Marchiafava ;)
I don't see the appeal of the gameplay or story, but the game is not bad to watch.
This looks boring. I want to see the plane in a 3rd person view and I want to fly around cities blowing up skyscrapers or whatever I want. Tom Clancy's games are too realistic in their gameplay. It sucks all the fun out of playing the game. His 1st person shooters are too technical in execution and are more about strategy than running and gunning. That's cool for some folks but it just is boring to me.
I'm gonna buy this just so I can force my dad to watch it so he'll get sick
Jeff, learn to fly! =p lol jk
HAWX 2 looks like more of the same, this is prolly gonna be a rental for me...
Makes me feel like Tom Cruise in TopGun!
I want this game even more now...
