The sequel to 2009's arcade-style flight combat game, H.A.W.X. 2 has you piloting advanced fighter jets and other experimental aircraft while engaging in dogfights, embarking on nighttime bombing runs, and deploying UAVs to track targets. New to this version is the ability to take off and land on bases and carriers as well as refuel in mid-flight. Missions take place in Moscow, the Persian Gulf, the Arctic Circle, and the Indian Ocean. In an attempt to make each locale visually authentic, the developers used high-resolution satellite imagery to reconstruct the environments.
As part of an elite squadron specializing in black ops and surgical interventions, you'll follow the perspectives of pilots from three forces: American, British, and Russian. Among the featured aircraft are the F-22 Raptor, F-35 Lightning II, Su-37 Terminator, Eurofighter Typhoon, F-117 Nighthawk, F-14A Tomcat, and the AC-130U Spooky. UAVs can also be flown to identify enemies, record conversations, and perform similar surveillance operations. While progressing through the campaign, you'll fly over mountains, deserts, coastal regions, and actual cities to complete mission objectives. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
