Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2: A Review of the 2010 Combat Flight Simulator
Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2 is a combat flight simulator developed by Ubisoft Bucharest and published by Ubisoft in 2010. It is the sequel to Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X, which was released in 2009. The game features a story campaign that can be played solo or with up to three other players in co-op mode, as well as various multiplayer modes.
The game takes place in various locations around the world, such as the Middle East, Russia, Africa and the Arctic. The player assumes the role of different pilots from different factions, such as the US H.A.W.X. squadron, the Russian Air Force, the British Royal Navy and the AC-130 Spooky crew. The game also introduces new gameplay elements, such as takeoff, landing, aerial refueling and operator-guided weapons.
The game received mixed reviews from critics, who praised the graphics, sound and co-op features, but criticized the lack of plane and weapon customization, the repetitive missions, the unrealistic physics and the weak story. The game was also criticized for requiring a constant internet connection to play on PC, even in single-player mode.
Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2 is available for PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii platforms. The PC version was released on November 12, 2010 and requires no crack to play. The game also supports multiple languages, such as English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Russian.

The game's gameplay is similar to that of the previous game, but with some changes and improvements. The player can switch between different views, such as cockpit, third-person and assistance off modes. The assistance off mode allows the player to perform more realistic maneuvers, such as barrel rolls and high-G turns, but also makes the plane more vulnerable to stalling and crashing. The game also features a damage system, which affects the performance and appearance of the plane.
The game's missions vary from air-to-air combat, air-to-ground attack, escort, reconnaissance, stealth and bombing. The player can use different types of weapons, such as guns, rockets, missiles and bombs. Some weapons are operator-guided, which means the player can control them after launching them. The game also introduces new elements, such as takeoff and landing sequences, which require the player to follow instructions and adjust speed and altitude. The player can also perform aerial refueling by approaching a tanker plane and maintaining a steady position.
The game's co-op mode allows up to four players to play the story campaign together online or locally. The co-op mode also features a new class of planes called electronic warfare planes, which can jam enemy radars and missiles, as well as provide support for other planes. The game's multiplayer mode offers various modes, such as team deathmatch, capture the flag, siege and survival. The multiplayer mode also features a ranking system and unlockable perks and skins for the planes. aa16f39245
