'I played the first Hawx.' 
'Yeah?' 
'Yeah.' 
'Alright.'  
 
Love it.  That cockpit view looks more like you're on some kind of flying motorbike rather than in a jet.

I always wonder if the voice radio chatter is always that calm in real life after an allied chopper just got shot the fuck out of the air. Considering the crew are often killed on impact or taken hostage, I'd think it would be a little more emotional a thing to happen.

Looks pretty much the same as the first one. As much as I liked H.A.W.X, I can't really justify another $70-$80 for this one.

Ryan hates helicopters, but loves helicopter porn.   I think there is an actual psychological term for this.

These flying game quick looks are always amusing.  Think I will go re-watch the Wings of Prey quick look.

HAWX was easily one of the dullest games I played recently. I got it as a gift, and had to force myself to get to level 3 or 4. Then I never got back to it again.  
 
After seeing the QL, it looks much the same...  
Long gone are times of nice quasi sims like EuroFighter 2000, F-14 Fleet Defender. Good 'ol times.
 
Btw. I enjoyed Ace Combat definately more.

Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, I never played the original. Which I usually play all of the Tom Clancy games, but that didn't look so good. This looks alright though! I wonder how the music is, and the story. I hope you can look out the side of the jet in cockpit view like in Ace Combat or Rouge Squadron. 
 
Edit: nevermind about the cockpit thing.

As bad as the genre may have gotten, I'm a sucker for these Air Combat games. Haven't tried the World War 2 ones but I love me some super melodramatic Ace Combat and even got some enjoyment out of the first HAWX.

I was oddly bothered by the above-sea-level altimeter, you'd think AGL would be more useful while flying around mountains. I miss the days of actual flight sims.

It seems like the remaining enemies simultaneously explode if you kill enough enemy jets yourself.

"Kick it."
