Fighter jets haven't looked this good since Top Gun (the movie, not the game). Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. is guaranteed to turn some heads this March, especially amongst those who have every Ace Combat title in their video game library. These days, developers are focusing more on the expansive action/adventure genre, but we can always use a top-quality flight game. What strikes us most in these new H.A.W.X. trailers is the extreme smoothness of the on-screen action; the framerate is really quite impressive and the visuals appear fantastic. And remember, you can expect an accessible simulator, so don't worry about picking up a game that's as complex and demanding as Microsoft Flight Simulator. No, this one is for the masses. Yay!
