Beperkte multiplayeropties en te weinig verschil tussen de toestellen doen gelukkig maar weinig af aan het speelplezier dat in de bloedlinke lucht van deze HAWX te genieten valt.

So, in summary, the game's pretty decent. As with all flight sims, it's a flight sim - it can get pretty repetitive through its very nature. Still, it's gorgeous to look at for the most part, a new concept for the whole dogfighting scenario is much appreciated and the missions are varied and challenging. Tom Clancy fans will also likely get emotional over the brief inclusions of Scott Mitchell, the star of Ghost Recon. If you want an aerial warfare game, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. will likely be the best option for you.

Despite these annoyances, the online play -- particularly co-op -- gives HAWX significant replayability. Everything from the picture-perfect planes to the stunning real world environments looks great, even after multiple passes. And the flyability afforded by the well-executed controls makes you feel like a pro -- it immerses you in the world of being a fighter pilot without ever taking off. Return trips stay fresh too, because you'll find yourself playing out unique mini-stories as each enemy-dogfighting encounter unfolds anew. HAWX is a remarkably exhilarating entry in a genre that seemed to have been stuck in a rut.

Tom Clancy's HAWX is a rewarding arcade aerial-combat experience that looks and sounds every bit as good as it plays. The controls, and in particular the ERS innovation, make dogfighting in iconic planes over famous cities as accessible as it is enjoyable. It's unfortunate that the multiplayer options are so limited and that the various aircraft all feel very similar to fly, but there's lots of fun to be had here for novices and top guns alike.

»Flugsimulation«? Hahaha! Nein, ernsthaft: Mit einer Simulation hat HAWX etwa so viel zu tun wie ein Schnabeltier mit Gehirnchirurgie. Okay, man befindet sich in einem Cockpit, hoch über den Wolken, aber der spielerische Anspruch wäre derselbe, wenn man keinen Steuerknüppel, sondern ein Schrotgewehr in den Händen hätte. HAWX ist ein unterhaltsamer, spaßiger und sehr unkomplizierter Arcade-Shootout mit schnellen Erfolgen und dank gigantischem Raketen-Kontingent gut krachender Action. Allerdings geht mir der Mangel an Anspruch gegen den Strich; das ERS ist das hiesige Äquivalent zu Prince of Persias Elika: Es macht das Spiel irre leicht, jeder untrainierte Schimpanse kriegt damit perfekte Abschüsse und effiziente Ausweichmanöver hin.

Tom Clancy's HAWX fait ce qu'on attendait de lui : il offre une plaisante expérience arcade et d'agréables doses de sensations. Une excitation qui est malheureusement atténuée par un rythme parfois trop lent ou des missions de défense prédominantes ou la restriction du mode Off réservé à une vue externe plus visuelle que fonctionnelle. On recommandera aussi aux plus aguerris de pousser la difficulté afin de conserver aux combats aériens un bon niveau de fun et d'intérêt. Les apprentis pilotes de chasse qui n'ont pas trop envie de se prendre la tête, en quête d'un jeu arcade tout simple, trouveront certainement leur bonheur ici, qu'ils utilisent les modes d'assistance ou pas.

Tom Clancy’s HAWX is very close to being a great game; it’s just missing a few of the intricate pieces that create an enthralling experience. As it is the mission design is lacking, the combat is unimaginative, and the multiplayer is shallow. Still, there are plenty who will be able to enjoy soaring 40,000 feet above the earth destroying dozens of enemy planes. All the while belting out lines of Danger Zone. That’s not weird, is it?

Ainda que seja interessante a iniciativa da Ubisoft em diversificar o acervo de games com o nome de Tom Clancy, a aposta em um jogo de aviões não foi das mais certeiras. Todos os aspectos do título são simples demais, transformando-o em um jogo de tiro glamurizado e com pouca sensação de velocidade. Diante da escassez de títulos do gênero pode se tornar uma opção razoável entre os fãs, mas não deve chamar a atenção daqueles que nunca viram graça em games como o clássico "Afterburner".
