About This Game

AERIAL WARFARE HAS EVOLVED.
So have you. As a member of the ultra-secret H.A.W.X. 2 squadron, you are one of the chosen few, one of the truly elite. You will use finely honed reflexes, bleeding-edge technology and ultra-sophisticated aircraft – their existence denied by many governments – to dominate the skies.
You will do so by mastering every nuance of the world’s finest combat aircraft. You will slip into enemy territory undetected, deliver a crippling blow and escape before he can summon a response. You will use your superior technology to decimate the enemy from afar, then draw him in close for a pulse-pounding dogfight. And you will use your steel nerve to successfully execute night raids, aerial refuelings and more.
You will do all this with professionalism, skill and consummate lethality. Because you are a member of H.A.W.X. 2. and you are one of the finest military aviators the world has ever known.

Do not buy! They don't have their servers open and you can't play any mode, including single player story mode... The fact that Ubisoft and Steam still sell this game is bad business.

HAWX 1 is a dumb, but enjoyable Ace Combat alike as written by Tom Clancy's Tom Clancy presents TOM CLANCY'S TOMCLANCYGHOSTWRITTEN BY TOM CLANCY.

HAWX 2 takes all the stuff that made HAWX 1 enjoyable and throws it out the window, then outsources the flight engine to Kraft because holy ♥♥♥♥ I'm pretty sure it was jello. It also doesn't seem to let you choose aircraft during the campaign missions (at least the six or seven I got into it) and also routinely forces you into aircraft with no actual weaponry for the mission type. This makes you use their dumb gimmicks like UAVs to attack ground forces without enough ammo to do so and finicky, unwieldy controls for them. Stick with HAWX 1 if you really need a TOM CLANCY experience with planes.

Played this one time. Then something happened and it no longer works on my machine. Uninstalled the game 2 years ago. I reinstalled it just to see if maybe it would work. After downloading it from Steam and installing it. I ran it. It then had to go and download the UPlay app. Then the UPlay app had to update itself. It then needed me to log into it. Then It showed me that I had the game. When I clicked on the UPlay link to play I did get the Title page but then the program crashed to the desktop. NOW. I am just going to unistall it again.
